Altec Lansing ADA855 Optical Audio?

I have an Altec Lansing ADA885 system. I want to connect it to my television, which only has optical audio out. Is there any way to connect a Toslink optical audio cable to this system, or do I need to get that S/PDIF coaxial input? There is an analog input which I tried to use but I figured it wouldnt since optical audio is digital. The only input for digital audio is a coaxial S/PDIF.

SOURCE: Altec Lansing ada745 fuse

It is written on the sub. You can also take it out or look at the spare which is taped to the power cord wall plug. I believe it's T1A 250V fuse

SOURCE: Finding replacement Power Supply for Altec Lansing

I did the same! Thanks for suggesting a call to Customer Support (800)258+3288. The guy didn't seem overly pleased to help, but he did promise to send me a new power supply. Also, he said that they don't make the iM7 anymore, but I had already found out that the iM9 uses the same power supply. I, too, will wait and see.

SOURCE: What's the volt & amps of Altec Lansing AVS300 2.1 speaker system

Your adapter is Part No. AVX300-A6859, Model No. 9701-00748-IUND.
Or You could get a universal that is rated for output of 18volt DC, 650ma, Center Positive.
I have used a 15volt DC, 900 ma with no problem, but I never run the volume high.

Good Luck

Same issue showed up for me today very randomly...

HD comes on and off for no reason and sound cuts in and out. This fix worked for me:

1.Disconnect the left speaker from the sub woofer.
2.Take the 4 screws out on the bottom of the left speaker. (They are under the rubber matting you can just poke holes through it)
3. Remove the bottom plastic assembly from the speaker
4. Cut the 4 wires to the headset chip. Careful not to cut any others to the speakers themselves!
5. Unscrew and remove headset plug chip
6. Reassemble and plug left speaker back into sub woofer.

No more HD issues =)

SOURCE: I have Altec Lansing AVS 300 multimedia speakers with no power

Unfortunately the subwoofer supplies the power to the amp on the speakers, Once again I have the solution,
These speakers are factory molded so that the only way to open them is to break the factory seal
this can be done by sharply rapping the seam at the bottom of the speaker with a heavy screwdriver handle or something similar.
Now you need to supply power to the amp...If you do not have the subwoofer you will need a 4.5volt power supply, after removing the board from the casing find the red white and black wires connecting
the orange plug wire to it, Personally I removed the entire cord from the unit, shough you can splice in at this point if you desire.
Connect the white lead to your posative on your power supply by either splicing or soldering, connect the ground to the heat sink using the screw that is already there holding the chip to the sink. reassemble the speaker.....super glue... and you are now in business.

Will I be able to hook my altec lansing ada745 to my sanyo dp39842


The Sanyo DP39842 only has a digital audio out. You'd need a digital to analog converter, a coaxial digital audio cable, and then an RCA to 3.5 mm audio cable. Here is an example of the audio converter: http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Optical-Analog-audio-converter/dp/B004C4WPXA .

I hope this helps.

Probably won't work. The audio amplifier in the TV isn't strong enough to connect external speakers. It would be best to use a sound bar using the optical connection.

ADA885 Clicking


A few possibilities exist. I would first check all the connections, and wiggle all the connectors and plugs to see if any one of them is causing it including the power cable. Also try to play with the ON/OFF/Volume switch to see if that's intermittent. Second, for quick isolation of the problem I would connect them to another PC - did the clicking and flickering go away? If it did, then your PC's audio circuitry is causing it - possibilities: defective audio card, or Motherboard (MB) if it has integrated audio, bad connections on MB or audio card, if you're also using analog audio connections going from the back of your CD/DVD RW to the audio card/MB then remove those wires and see if that problem goes away - those wires are notorious for picking up all kinds of noise and feeding that noise to your audio controller. One other thing to try is to completely uninstall and reinstall the audio drivers or even try a different revision.
