Question about Altec Lansing M604 Computer Speakers
So I just got my Altec Lansing M604 for my birthday, and it worked fine the first day, the sound quality was perfect, and I was giddy with anticipation for the many songs I'd play. I went out for a weekend and left it plugged into the electrical outlet (oops?). The next time I (correctly -I checked) inserted my Zune, and turned it on, it started doing this sort of clicking and thumping that could be associated with the bass, so I unplugged everything, did all the steps by the book to set it up, but the clicking/thumping continued. My music would play through it, but the interference every half second was understandably too much. I unplugged it, and became very frustrated. leaving it unplugged, I looked at the troubleshooting section of my manuel, but it was no help. I left it unplugged for about 15 minutes, and when I plugged it back in, the sound was fine. Thinking I just overheated it, I let it play, but there was not 5 minutes of music before the noise persisted. I've tried to correct it many times, moving the stereo to different places in the house, and even trying a different mp3 player, but nothing's helped. Please help.
I had this problem also...I unplugged the power from the dock for about a minute, plugged it back in, turned it on, placed my zune in the dock and it's been working ever since. Hope this helps someone.

It sounds like the subwoofer speaker has blown. If you are comfortable working with a soldering iron and speakers then you can open the case and replace the speaker with a replacement subwoofer speaker. A good online store for replacement speakers is PartsExpress.com

The solution is actually quite simple, due to a design flaw. Altec lansing designed a rather cheap mini din plug-in which can either be replaced or repaired depending on your skill and patience level. Your ground contact is fine BUT the positive contact is not making connection due to the fact that the plastic housing has broken away and pulled the contact with it. This can be super glued back into place or just replaced with a new mono minidin plug-in.
