SOURCE: how to repair atp3 altec lansing

Best bet would be to just strip the wire with a wire stripper or utility knife and twist the bare ends together to fix the connection. A little electrical tape around those wires and you should be almost good as new. Of course you might notice some difference in quality but I'm pretty sure the only way round that would be replacing the cable.

Try it out and let me know how it works out for you. If you know how to solder it might be a good idea to solder the connection as well.

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.

I work for a charity that had one of these donated today and as I was looking for a new sub for my cinema system I purchased it. I have no other speakers with it and no way of switching or varying the volume. I opened up the back of the sub and slid the board partly out exposing the PCB.
[IMG]http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q116/mm0dxc/PICT3734.jpg[/IMG]
You'll see 3 solder connections behind the scre in an "L" configuration. One of them is common, one volume and one power on. As I don't need volume, I'm happy with it being on full as my cinema system will vary the input, I joined all 3 together giving power on and full volume. It is working great now.

For you guys with volume controls, I would suggest shorting out the two rightmost pins in the "L" and I recon this will power it up and try varying your volume control. I recon it'll work just great.

Good luck

SOURCE: Altec Lansing ATP3 volume control/power know gone bad

just sone it, i had to break a whole in the bottom part , work my way around it with a screwdriver , it will snap every 2-3 cm and come off in the end.
after its off start at the (now exposed) bottom of the front bit and work your way up and aroud `till it comes off. mind the wires . as for the volume button fix , as soon as i played with it and tried it again , everything was good. even though replacing it doesn`t seem like a big deal
put it back together and will superglue it in the future( while typing this i doubt if it will ever happen), and it lookes good( except from the bottom ,where its broken !).
now the button is solid and the sound as well.

How can my laptop charger fit to computer speaker?


Please do not modify your laptop charger to power your speakers. The laptop charger probably has too high a voltage and amperage output. (USB chargers don't provide a large enough output.) The Altec Lansing ACS40 speakers need a 15V 900 mA power transformer; the coaxial power connector has the positive voltage on the center pin. The model number on the transformer is 4815090R3CT . This is available through Amazon.com and other vendors. One vendor is http://www.emtcompany.com/altec-lansing-4815090r3cac-power-supply-charger-adapter/1010666.html .

I hope this helps.

Check fuse, but if there wasn't a fuse , your Altec need repaired to fix broken components in power circuits, could be the resistors, diodes or even transformer.

ACS295 speaker cable to subwoofer, one of the pins of the connector is broken, how can I fix it or get a new connector?


if connector is broken, you need to buy a new connector, but it takes a little handwork and some tools a screw driver some electric iron and solder.

u need to open subwoofer case and check for the connector is soldered in a board is 2 jack 3,5mm female connector and one red mini-DIN connector. replace the connector take a attention on soldering the connector, dont damage the board wires and pins, if the iron above 300ºC.

take a special attention on electrostatic discharge, normaly burns sensitive boards.

Altec lansing


I had the same problem. After numerous calls to Altec Lansing they sent me out a new one. The new one doesn't have the same connector on it. I called tech support only to hear that they discontinued the 621 and don't make parts for it. Sorry, you are probably out of luck.
