Question about Altec Lansing VS4121 Speaker

Right speaker not working

Alright, first off I checked my speakers by plugging it into my ipod. The right speakers still doesn't work. So it couldn't possibly be my driver's settings. The left and the woofer is fine though. I've tried plug and replugging several times.

I can still on my speakers using the right speakers (Green LED light) and can still toggle the volume, treble and bass. But there's just no sound coming out of it. Anyway to solve it?

And I wasn't sure when exactly this problem started. I just noticed it today.

Try to check if the wiring connection inside the right speaker is still active.

SOURCE: one speaker

the reason would be. 1.the spaker coil is open. 2. the speaker connection to the wire may be dry solder.

SOURCE: Altec Lansing VS4121 no sound

you may want to try to rollback the driver, right click My Computer, left click properties, click hardware, then Device Manager,then sound video and game controllers, double click on the sound card and rollback if available, the speakers may also just simply be bad, If there is a seperate power source for the speakers,(an AC Adapter) then it may not be working correctly even if the power lights come on. The easiest way to determine if its the speakers, try them in a friends laptop or Desktop, on laptop, plug speakers into the headphone jack for sound output. if they work on another PC, then you have a driver issue, OR more than likely a Windows issue, in which case a Restore may be neccesary to fix, refer to the manufacturers instructions to restore your machine. Microsoftrecomends that you reinstall Windows XP at least every 12 months ( to me if it's not broke, don't fix it) in other words if you have no problems or need for a restore, don't do one because it has been over 12 mths. It sounds like you have done a good job at Troubleshooting, but to confirm the culprit try on another PC,(with your Headphones working, but your speakers wont, it sounds like your speakers have malfunctioned. I hope this helps, if so please give a fixya rating, or if it points you in the right direction, just please give appropriate rating. Thanks for the question

Swap wires between speakers and to make sure it is not the amp, the head unit or wiring. If the right speaker still doesn't work touch a 9v battery to the speaker terminals for a second to verify if the speaker is good or bad (a pop the speaker is working nothing the speaker is bad)replace. Otherwise check the wiring between the amp and the head unit. If all the wiring is good you may have a bad channel in your amp(bad internal connection or bad component(s)) or last there could be a bad channel output on your head unit. If that is your only right speaker and you don't have one in the door and you use an ipod as a source check the cord!

Rear right speaker doesn't work, no matter what we tried. We switched the speaker and cables with one of the others, but just that position (surround right) doesn't work.


click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there also if you have the right ones selected

try swapping the speakers around if the problem still persists either the speaker is faulty
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps

I have a Fisher RS-909 Surrond Sound amplifier. It has no "sub out" jack. I had the sub-woofer working in the past by wiring it as shown in the manual. The problem is that the system was in...


Alright i had a chance to look over things, this is how you are going to hook up the sub. first we'll be connecting the surround sound unit to the sub woofer.
surround sound unit sub woofer
left front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) left speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - ->( - ) left speaker level in

right front: positive (+) <-----to------------->(+) right speaker level in
negative ( - )<- - -to- - - - - - >( - ) right speaker level in

now that the surround sound unit is connected to the sub woofer you will need to connect the front surround sound speakers to the sub woofer.
sub woofer front surround sound speaker
left speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) left front speaker
left speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - - ->( - ) left front speaker

right speaker level out (+)<-----to--------> (+) right front speaker
right speaker level out( - ) <- - - to- - - ->( - ) right front speaker

Alright now that the wires are all over the place and plugged in
turn everything on and see how it sounds. let me know if everything is working as it should. if you need help with anything else or if something does not seem right please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone

I have a set of speakers: 2 speakers and one subwoofer. The problem I am encountering is when I plug in my ipod to the system, only the right one works. The left is completely silent. However, one time...


Try a different cord (not "chord") between your iPod and your speakers.

Make sure that the iPod is not "panned" (100% right audio and 0% left audio), but is "50/50".

Similarly, make sure that the computer's sound is not "panned".

My external speakers work with my ipod but not my computer


Is the jack "on-board"? That is, on the motherboard? Or, do you have a separate sound card in your computer? On-board sound devices frequently fail . Either way, I would say you probably need a sound card. Make sure you have an open OCI slot in your computer and then go buy a PCI sound card. Oh yes, once installed, you may or may not need to disable the on-borad device in your BIOS to prevent conflicts.

Did this solve your problem? If so, please rate this. ty.

No sound from right speaker?


HELLO

I have had this problem myself over the years with Sony sets. There will be a plug with wires that go to the speaker that is affected. It will be dry solder joints on the board where the speaker plug goes to. They need to be re-soldered and do this with BOTH speaker plugs as a precaution.

Also check the connections on the speakers themselves. Always remember if the sound is OK through headphones then it is something simple.

Hope this has helped you (:-)

Right speaker doesnt have sound


1ST.-The right jack could be damaged!!
Usually, there is a [+} posaitve & [-] negative input\output to speaker connections. Not all [-]neg. is ground.Sometimes the [+] pos. is grounded. [The exception to the rule is that u SEE the black wire going to ground] the reason I am letting u know this is that u can test the INSIDES of the sound system.
If u can get inside of the unit. Cut the left speaker output [+] posative from both outputs. criss\cross wires.Place left speaker output to right speaker jack[ that does not work!!] & visa versa.If the [LEFT Output] stops working after u plug in the speakers,the internal RIGHT output is damaged. NEEDS TO BE TESTED
If nothing nothing changes.The left still works & the right still does not work, then it is the jack (shorted ?, opened internally ?)
