Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have Altec Lancing ACS22 computer speakers. When I push the botton to turn the speakers on, the light won't come on - meaning they are not on. It takes several tries pressing on the botton at different angles for the speakers to finally turn on.

Hello! The "DC IN" jack has bad solder connections on the circuit board or the "ON\OFF" switch has corrosion\dirt on the switch contacts or bad solder connections itself. Use a philips head screwdriver to disassemble the speaker and solder the "DC IN" jack and the on\off switch. Get "control cleaner" and spray it into the on\off switch. Push the button many times to clean the contacts inside the switch. Only one other thing could cause this problem and that's a cracked circuit board.That can be fixed by soldering jumper wires across the broken traces on the board. Good luck!!

Can i connect altec lansing expressionist classic speakers to a TV? if so, how? THX!


If your TV has a variable audio output, yes.

http://reviews.cnet.com/pc-speakers/altec-lansing-expressionist-classic/4507-3179_7-33427969.html?tag=specs

Plug them in directly to a compatible 3.5 mm output or adapt an RCA audio output to 3.5mm with a connector available at any electronics store like radio Shack.

In your TV audio menu select "variable" for the audio out. Otherwise they'll always be at maximum volume.

I have a kenwood k-stat home receiver and it is stuck on mute. i dont have a remote with it and was wondering what button to push where it will get off mute.


hello, if you dont have the user manual you can get from this link
http://www.retrevo.com/support/Kenwood-VR-407-Receivers-manual/id/480ag200/t/2/
according to the manual i think you have turned of speakers, if so you can turn them on again.
as the users manual says it should be the 11th button group, you find this pair of buttons in the left side next to the power botton, you might have turned off speakers.

When home theater is turn on, protector push power is flashed on thee screen. player will not function further. volume level is 9. currently can't be turn down.


Protector means there is a short circuit somewhere in either the speakers, the wiring or inside the unit itself....you can try disconnecting all the speakers and then turning on the unit...if the protector goes away, then you have a bad speaker or bad wiring to the speakers....if the problem stays, then there is a faulty circuit in the receiver itself and will need to be serviced

I had a set of computer speakers (Altec Lansing BX3). My wife plugged a heater into the surge protector and later yanked the heater plug out before turning it off. Computer went into some freaky cousin of...


Maybe the capacitor in the power supply burned upon unplugging the heater. The power supply is a coil with iron core, next to it, there should be a rectifier and a capacitor. If the capacitor is burnt, the powersupply will still be working, but there will be noise on the line, the 50 Hz that comes out of your wall outlet. Capacitor of the same value can be bought for small change but has to be soldered in.

What would cause my altec lansing 9444b amp to blow the fuse as soon as it is turned on


You may have a short in your wiring, re-trace all of the speaker wires leaving your receiver and going to each of your speakers and be sure the hot and cold wires are not touching anywhere.
Also be sure your volume is not absolutely cranked up.

My Sony LBT- LX30 stereo is saying "PUSH POWER PROTECT" when I try to turn it on. What does this mean?


You probably have a blown amp ic or the output transistors. But disconnect the speakers and turn it on could be a bad speaker if it turns on.

Power button won't shut off


First thing to do is unplug the reciver for 12 to 24 hours. Sounds like it needs to be reset.
