Re: Z10 USB connection does not work

My symptoms were that the speakers stopped working all of a sudden. Display showed power but gave no access to volume adjustment and did not play sounds.

I read a vague comment by another poster and it worked!
They said to unplug it from the power plug and leave it overnight before replugging it in...... at first I dismissed this, and tried everything else to no resolution. I was ready to return the speakers but decided to unplug it and see... Bingo********! in the morning

Z-10 is now back in action.

Re: Z10 USB connection does not work

Go into the subdirectory and run the executable file manually (rather than the autorun on the disk). This installed the driver fine for my windows XP. having a problem with the sound stopping every half hour when watching a movie on VLC media player tho. still a work in progress ;)

How to connect lexmark all in one x3550 printer to a gateway zx6971 desktop

Hi, you need to have the cable that goes from the back of the printer into a usb socket on your pc. You should have got two cables with the printer the power cable to supply the printer and another cable that also goes into the printer and the other end usb goes into a slot in your pc that's how it transfers info printer to pc. You should have got an installation printer disk that you have to install into your pc so that you can pull the printer up on your pc and they both recognize each other.

When I try to use USB port with iphone I get error message

USB cords have a "shelf" life and can break down after a while. If you are using a non-Apple replacement for an original cord, that could also be a problem. The worst case scenario is that the nodes in the female plug that connects your phone to the USB cable is worn. I have had all three of these issues happen to me over the years...but never the same thing twice!

Don't know how to recharge

Just use the combined USB/audio cable. Plug the standard USB side in your computer, or even in the back of some modern TVs, and then plug the other side with the smaller USB plug into the speaker.

What cables to i need to connect z10 to my computer, thanks.

You will need a dedicated Z10 data cable. One end will have the USB connector which will connect to the PC and the other end will have the dedicated Z10 connector which will connect to the phone.
It normally comes in the box along with the charger if you got it brand new.
Should be available at any mobile store

I cant install them?

The CA-2016 desktop 2-piece system it is a USB powered amplifier that draws the power through a USB cable. No batteries or AC power source/wires are required which leaves the desk top clean. The speaker system is magnetically shielded and has a LED power indicator. This being said setup the speakers plug in the USB cable, notice if the LED power indictor light is on. Adjust volume control on speakers and on your computer ( make sure your not muted ). PC's have a lot of different media players that can and will effect the volume control so if one or more of those items are adjusted to low volume or muted, there will be little to no output to your speakers.

Sound goes out & speakers "disappear" from computer prefs panel

I would open it up (assuming it's a desktop pc not a laptop), and make sure the sound card (if it's an expansion card and not built-in to the motherboard), is properly seated (all the way in) in the expansion slot.

Connected to laptop with vista via USB connection to speakers - NO sound

A letter from Altec: E-mail from Altec Lansing explaining how to use the ACS 495 speakers with Windows XP and Vista: "These speakers require no special drivers or software to work properly. At the current time we do not have AMS software or an USB audio device driver compatible with Windows XP or Vista. There are no plans at this time to develop this software. Your speakers will work with Windows XP & Vista. Just make sure you use the audio cable from the back of the subwoofer to the audio or sound out port of your sound card. Do not use the USB cable. Sound does not come through the USB port The USB cable just allows you to use the AMS software. This software gives you some control over some of the sound features. The same functionality of the AMS software can be gotten by using the buttons on the speakers and the volume control software that comes with your Windows system. If you double click the speaker icon from the system tray, that will open this software up. With the USB connector removed or the computer turned off, STEREO or PRO LOGIC modes can be selected by depressing and holding the center control down for approximately three seconds. The mode selected will be indicated by the color of the LED on the front right speaker. When the light glows yellow it is in the STEREO mode. When the light is green it is in the PRO LOGIC mode."

Make sure you have a sound card installed
    • you think you have a sound card installed but you don’t see it under the Sound, video and game controllers category, expand the Other devices category and check any devices listed there.
  1. If there is a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card, there might be a problem. Right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.
  2. Make sure your speakers are plugged into a working power source and turned on.
  • Make sure your speakers are correctly connected to the computer.
    On your speakers, find the cable that plugs into your computer. Make sure that the speaker cable is plugged into the speakers and the correct jack on the computer. For example, if the cable is a 1/8 inch cable, there should be a round jack for it on the back of the computer. If it is a universal serial bus (USB) cable, it will plug into any USB port on your computer.
  • Make sure your headphones are not plugged into the line out (headphone) jack of your sound card or computer (unless you want to be listening with headphones rather than speakers). When you plug in headphones, most computers automatically cut the sound to the speakers.
If these steps don’t solve the problem, check the information that came with your computer and speakers or go to the manufacturer's website.
