It is unlikely that this is a problem with your speakers more likely that it is a problem with the DVD player itself. I would recomend trying another DVD player.

SOURCE: cannot connect my surround sound altec lansing system to my compu

The first thing you can do is go to www.retrevo.com to download the manual. Secondly all you have to do is match the colors of the wires to the imports in the back. You have five speakers. Two have gray wires, two have red and one has blue. If you also notice each speaker has two wires. One a solid color, the other striped with black. For instance, put the solid red wire into the red import and the red wire with the black stripe into the black import. Repeat this with all the other wires. The easiest way to hook it up to your computer or laptop is to take one of the aux wires (the wires with the yellow/green/black tips). It doesn't matter which one. Put into you headphone import on your computer or laptop. Then put the other side into the Aux on the subwoofer. Located on the front. Turn on the power on the back. Then hit the aux button on the remote. That should work....
If you have any other questions or need any more help you can contact me brown.faith@rocketmail.com

Hello. I figured it out. You probably have a computer that only has one AUDIO OUT jack or headphone jack. Take the wire with the green plugs (1/4") and put one end in the AUX jack on the front of the Altec subwoofer and the other in your audio out or headphone jack. After turning on the power switch on the back of the Altec subwoofer, you'll see the green indicator light next to the AUX jack on the subwoofer blink and then come on steadily. YOU MUST HIT THE AUX BUTTON on the remote control, or you won't hear anything. (Make sure your PC's audio is set to line out, if it doesn't recognize the speakers automatically.) This is the same way you hook up an MP3 player or portable CD player, etc.

SOURCE: Can the Altec Lansing VS3251 5.1 work with a Xbox?

Because this system is made to work with the PCs, it has a 3.5 mm stereo input. The 360 has rca cable outputs. Fortunately, the signal is the same and all you need is a 3.5 mm to rca y adapter that you can find at radioshack or any local electronics store.

7 WIRES , WHAT COLOR GOES TO WHICH PIN? 2 BLACK , 1 GREEN, ONE YELLOW, ONE WHITE, 2 ORANGE, ONE HEAVIER THAT THE OTHER


Hi Jerry
What Model....?
Using a mobile phone camera would have helped in this situation.
Before taking things apart

I'll be very surprised if someone has the same speaker system in bits somewhere
An electronics guy would trace the wire back to it's source to decide what it's being used for.
Good Luck

Wiring diagram for altec lansing acs340 sub woofer


This is not something that you will get access to from here. Try asking a repair shop if they can get the schematics for this speaker. You could also contact A-L directly.
Not likely to happen.

Furthermore these are inexpesive 2.1 speakers that can be replaced for 30-40 dollars. Not worth the effort.

The transformer of my sub-woofer is burnt. When i take it to the repair shop, they say that the transformer is not available. I badly need to fix the speaker as i love them very much and the new ones are...


Sub woofers have small amplifiers , not transformers. The amplifier is removable and replaceable. The The overall size and the output wattage are the spec's you need . The output wattage is on the label which is attached somewhere on the speaker. You do NOT need to replace the amp with the Altec Lansing brand. Have you contacted Altec Lansing to purchase a replacement Amp? That's where I would start. If they cannot help you I would Google replacement amp sub-woofer, Altec Lansing model MX5021.
good luck

My altec lansing mx5021 speakers problem


The problem I have found is the contact glue between the back panel and circuit board inside the sub woofer. The glue becomes conductive after some time (2 years..!!) and needs to be scraped away from across tracks, you can tell the problem areas as the glue is pale yellow but goes brown and conductive over time. Good luck.

Sub Woofer to Sound Dock


Well if you are talking about the iM600 sounddock from Altec Lansing, the short answer is no. If you want better bass from an IPOD docking system you'll need to buy an expensive component from say Scandyna Dock or you could build one yourself. You would need an integrated amp or a complete system like the NAD C71. This would allow you to plug in a self-powered sub.
