Any internal slow-blow fuse can be replaced with one of the correct value. Fuses do seem to have a finite life, so occasionally you can just replace the blown fuse  with an identical one and all will be well. However, fuses are protection devices , and it's more likely that you have a  short circuit or  defective component in your VS3251 that's causing it to draw too much current , and the internal fuse is blowing to prevent further damage. ie the fuse blowing is the symptom not the problem. Never replace fuses with ones of a higher current rating. Slow-blow fuses have the suffix T (for "Time Delay", and normal ones have F ( for "Fast"). With the street price of the VS3251 , a commercial repair is uneconomical

Is the label missing? All the information is printed on a label or stamped into the plastic housing. Have you opened it? Many have an internal fuse you can replace.

I plugged my 110 volts Altec Lansing speakers into 220 volts :( How can I fix it? Please help me. Thank You.


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.

Blowing fuses, went to radio shack and replaced fuse with a slow blow 5 amp 125 volt blew it again. Does this imply a problem with the system?


YES it does! There's an overload caused by some semi-conductor (hard to say what) that's acting like it was a piece of wire!
Hunt around the electronic parts, you might see a burnt or damaged part if your lucky.

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

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.

I had the same problem. One day I heard two pops and the speaker, including the power light, were dead. Neither Dell nor Altec Lansing support them. They're throw-aways, unless you know a genius electronics technician.
