Question about Altec Lansing Multimedia Computer Speakers
I have an older Altec lansing speaker set. An ACS 45. It has worked fine for years. I got rid of the computer and now use the speakers to play music from my MP3 player. They now have a static noise coming from them every so often, even when not connected to a sound source. Is there something I can do with placement of the speakers. Is it interference from surrounding devices?
Not much information here but I will try my best, could be a problem with the cable your using between the speakers and the mp3 player, you could have a dry joint, if it's like a "hum" sound your getting it's a bad ground, without the mp3 playing plugged in tap the end of the stereo minijack cable with the speakers turned up? hear the 50hz buzz - if the interference sounds the same it's most likely a bad cable or bad connector on the speakers. I would need to either hear the interference to determine what fault it is or if you can describe it better i.e. what it sounds like.

Hi, I would suggest that you should check into your computer rather than your speakers. Specifically your sound card and its drivers. Try going to your Device Manager and check your Sound, Video and Game Controllers. There should not be any Yellow markings anywhere. Cheers

Sounds like a problem in the speakers' internal power supply, maybe a faulty capacitor. Speakers need to be looked at by a technician, or replaced with a new set.
