I'm not sure what to do as this is such an old (but great) dinosaur piece of equipment. I need something with heavy bass for music. This thing shook me and the entire room I'm in, so I just need something comparable. I don't want to spend $1908319381 but I know I'll probably have to go over $100.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
From looking at pictures of your Logitech Z560 it looks like the connection between your control unit and the powered subwoofer is a multipin DIN plug. Easy to dislodge. So, I assume that is what you accidently pulled out. No burning smell suggest that the electronics may not have been damaged in the process (although, if electronics have been damaged, I doubt repair is an option given the age and original cost of the equipment). You could call Logitech to confirm this.
A quick Google search turned this up: http://www.neoseeker.com/forums/2105/t1576139-z560-still-silent-after-replacing-blown-fuse/
So, you might check to see if your Z560 fuse is blown. If that's the only issue, then you should be able to replace the fuse with a new one of the same rating and be back in business.
P.S. If you open the back of the woofer to check the fuse mentioned in the post above, make sure the AC cord is unplugged from the wall first!
