Question about Altec Lansing iM3 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

No power to speakers

I have the Altec Lansing IM3 speakers. Everything was working fine and then I put a friend's 60 GB IPOD video on the speakers and now they won't power on. I'm not sure if the IPOD video wasn't comaptible and caused a problem or if that was just a coincidence. Regardless, my speakers no longer will power on. I have tried using the plug as well as the batteries - either way, I cannot get the power light to come on. Any ideas?

Lol, sounds like that iPod sucked the power out of your house. Just kidding. If it is plugged into a wall outlet, make sure that the conections are not bent or warped in any way (remeber this stuff is very fragile so look for the smallest stuff). If it is plugged into one of those multi outlet devils, make sure that is not too clogged up. For those I always use the Male Bathroom Ediquate rule, never stand (nor plug) next to a guy in another urinal.

Altec lansing imt620 no sound, everything else works fine (speakers are ok)


Pardon my question; but what do you mean everything works fine? Have you attempted to attach the speaker system to an other device, such as a Receiver, DVD player, TV, etc? First check and see if the System works on other electronics and if it is working, then you go back to your computer and start from there; and I assume "everything works fine" could be the computer. The Altec is one of the best systems out there and their quality superior. It is rare to get a new Altec in a defective state as they do a great job on quality control.

Altec Lansing VS4121 speakers stopped working for no reason????


I had a similar set and they drove me mad because they hissed when they were switched off. I bought a pair of Bowers and Wilkins MM1 instead. Fabulous.

If you want yours fixed you would have to take them to an electronics engineer or return them.

My Altec Lansing IM3 no longer works with the AC power adapter but does in battery mode. Does that mean I need a new power adapter or could the circuitry on the iM3 be faulty? I play this with my iPod.


The power adapter could be bad BUT also the jack it plugs into may be bad. It will have a switch to disconnect the battery when adapter is plugged in.

You need to get a voltmeter and check the output of the adapter. OFTEN the cable beaks where it flexes. Sometimes the cable can be spliced, but DO be careful to not reverse the wires.
