Question about Altec Lansing MX5021 Computer Speakers

Screws included for wall mounting don't fit (Altec Lansing MX5021)

Hi - the "wall mounting" kit included two foam-backed mounts and two small black screws. I know the foam back should be against the speaker and it's obvious which of the two holes is for the wall and which to attach to the speaker. The included screw fits perfectly into the mount but doesn't go more than 1 turn into the speaker. The only other hole in the back of the speaker is an enormous gold threaded one - certainly not the size of the screw.

Should I just be forcing it - are they supposed to fit? I am worried about splitting something. I could try to find another set of screws, but it's lame that the gear included doesn't work without what might be a worrying amount of force.

cheers
Karin

They do fit but the hole in the speakers are very small so you have to apply a bit of force to screw them in.

Altec lansing mx5021 wired controller not working


Sounds like you might have a wire loose at the other side of the controller. This is a easy thing to find out. Just unscrew the side screws that hold the back board to the cabinet. Don't unscrew the screws connected to the speaker wire clips unless the back doesn't come off. Just look for a disconnected wire at the controller jack then put it back. If there is no loose wire then you might have a bent female contact at the outside of the controller jack. You would have to look for this looking into the holes where you plug the cable into the controller jack. If you see a bent contact then use a thin nail of ice pick and insert it into the hole where the bent connector is to try to re open the contact so the cable can slip into it easy. Don't forget to unplug the power first.

Hi I have a digimate tv model modl lt321c2m1 and I am wondering if I can mount it on the wall. Can I?


Please look on the back, there should be 4 mounting holes (for Metric screws) Iin what is called VESA mounting pattern. Just measure the pattern.

When you buy the mounting bracket, it will come with a bag of Metric mounting screws to attach your TV to the bracket.

The transformer of my sub-woofer is burnt. When i take it to the repair shop, they say that the transformer is not available. I badly need to fix the speaker as i love them very much and the new ones are...


Sub woofers have small amplifiers , not transformers. The amplifier is removable and replaceable. The The overall size and the output wattage are the spec's you need . The output wattage is on the label which is attached somewhere on the speaker. You do NOT need to replace the amp with the Altec Lansing brand. Have you contacted Altec Lansing to purchase a replacement Amp? That's where I would start. If they cannot help you I would Google replacement amp sub-woofer, Altec Lansing model MX5021.
good luck

My altec lansing mx5021 speakers problem


The problem I have found is the contact glue between the back panel and circuit board inside the sub woofer. The glue becomes conductive after some time (2 years..!!) and needs to be scraped away from across tracks, you can tell the problem areas as the glue is pale yellow but goes brown and conductive over time. Good luck.
