Houston, we have a problem…
As of this evening, my PC’s sound system won’t turn on. Nothing happens at all: the whole thing appears to be dead. Reading around the web, it would appear that the most likely explanation is that the fuse has blown. Apparently, this is a fairly common problem with this system (Logitech Z-5500), with a number of users reporting an extremely short lifespan for the fuse that comes with the speakers. Assuming this is the problem (and I’m crossing my fingers that the issue isn’t more complex, because I could do without the hassle of having to return the whole kit and caboodle), then fixing it should be fairly straightforward. Unfortunately, I don’t happen to have a pile of 2-amp fuses lying around, so it looks as if a trip to the shops will be in order tomorrow. It’s funny - you don’t realise how much you rely on sound until you find yourself without it.
