Question about Altec Lansing 621 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

AVS500 powered subwoofer

I have this ancient computer sound system which has been perfectly adequate for my computer usage, until the last few weeks. The subwoofer has developed this extremely annoying sound which I think may be interference of some kind. You cannot hear it on the small speakers. It is purely the subwoofer. The system has been in the same spot for over two years, so I cannot understand what has started to affect it. It is a constant quick mid range pulsating kind of sound. It last for several minutes and goes for a while to re-appear a little later without warning. I use the 5 speaker surround setting. How can I troubleshoot the system and sort the problem out. The troubleshoot on the computer has not helped at all.

1. the motherboard might be bad and you will need to replace it. 2. or The power supply is bad
Chances are if its making clicks the power supply is bad and you will need to replace it. Which makes sense because constantly powering the tv on and off will damage the power supply or possibly short out your motherboard. These things usually cost about 200 bucks to fix at a local tv repair store.

Actually, it seems the the ballast might have got damaged. This seems more like a ballast issue, it's easy to fix, plus ballasts run around 60 dlls.

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

I had this problem a few years back.

It's not a physical problem, it sounds like a bad relay, but a few other things were fixed when I sent it in for repair

It's not a simple fix, the amplifier in the subwoofer will need to be fixed by a knowledgable technician who has access to a schematic
