Ada 885 speakers will not turn on

The control speaker will not turn the speaker system on. LCD display does not turn on. Remote control will not turn the system on either. I've checked the fuse in the sub-woofer cabinet and it is fine. Any options? Is a replacement control speaker available?

SOURCE: How to disassemble Logitech Z-340 sub-woofer

The speaker bezel can be removed in only two ways:

1) Somehow remove the grille in order to get a the screws which hold the bezel onto the cabinet. I tried to do this and couldn't get it to budge. Once I got the thing open I observed that Logitech used a LOT of glue to hold this thing together.

2) Drill holes THROUGH the grill above each of the 8 screws large enough so you can loosen the screws.

Once you get it open, you'll be shocked to discover what you thought was the subwoofer cone is actually A ROUND PIECE OF CARDBOARD fastened to the foam. The 4" driver is behind this fastened to a board halfway back pointing into the chamber containing the electronics.

You can get to the power transformer, but good luck removing it. The screws are nearly impossible to unfasten; more glue but more importantly incredibly awful access to the nut and screw (yes, a screw, not a bolt).

I wouldn't pay 5 bucks for this system. Luckily, I didn't.

SOURCE: ive got creative inspire T7900 7.1 speaker system

Is this connecting to a sound blaster audigy 2 zs or xfi soundcard? or a motherboard onboard soundcard/ aftermarket Other than creative?

If connected to the creative card odds are the wire is bad. get a new one

If connected to a generic the wires for the speakers are proprietary and you have to go get 3.5 to 3.5 stereo cables to hook it up

Scan your PC for viruses.
If still not working format your PC and run any sample song without installing any game or soft as they may contain virus.

Lights on Altec Lansing display flashing after power outage and have no sound,check drivers and they are active and okay,but unistalled and reinstalled just the same,no results;also replaced fuse on...


I had the same problem. It ended up being a short in one of the wires in the control board. It was actually pretty easy to fix once I located all the screws to take apart the speaker where the board is housed...

Bass Problem


you may have a short in the wiring
you can always open up the bass box and look to see if the wiring is a little loose.
if you know how to use soldering you may be able to fix it.
if not you may be able to just tape it in place

Can I hook up my ada 885 to my dvd player& my flatscreen tv?


Yes. They are essentially Similar to any other 120 Watt Surround System for Home Entertainment. The Fact is, the only major difference is that the connections are different. On The PC it uses Stereo Standard Outputs. On Your DVD Player, It Will most Likely require an adapter to RCA (red/white -usually- Audio Cables). It just depends on your DVD Player. Have Fun!..... :)

Altec Lansing ADA 885


Hi,

Thanks for posting direct. As you posted, the Sony XBR has only left & right (white/red) outputs whereas your Altec ADA has multiple INputs. This leaves us with no other option but to used just the green INput of the Altec as the black and the S/PDIF has nowhere to be connected to in the Sony.

You would need to use a phone stereo to RCA cable/connector as shown below. Additionally, you would have to set up your speakers as suggested here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Compatability with TV


Hi,

Yes but you will not enjoy all the features of the Altec ADA 885 speaker system and if the TV's features will allow you.

Most TV's do not have audio out and if ever they do, chances are that it will only be left/right. Your Altec ADA 885 speaker system is capable of getting multiple inputs other than just left & right; main, front, surround & S/PDIF.

Hardware wise, the standard audio connector to the audio outputs of your PC are baby phone plugs, while those in the TV are RCA. If ever you will push through, you would need to get hold of a stereo RCA to baby phone cable. Am not sure if the yellow dongle cable that came with your package is long enough.

Additionally, here is a link to the normal installation instructions for an Altec ADA 885 speaker system should you be interested.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
