Question about Apple Logitech Inc MM50 Portable Speakers iPod 970173-0403 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

My iPod stopped playing through speakers- but only at work...

I used to listen to my iPod at work using my portable speakers from Altec Lansing. Suddenly one day there was no sound. I've checked to make sure all plugs were properly connected and even tried different plugs and another compatable cord. It works just fine when I use these speakers at home but will no longer play at work. Then I tried playing my iPod by plugging it directly into my computer speakers. That worked for a while and then stopped too. I'd blame "Big Brother" at work, but my co-workers speakers are working just fine and listening to music is one thing actually allowed. Any suggestions? I'm going crazy without my music! Thanks for any help! :)

    Thanks for your advice. My iPod does work on other speakers, but unfortunately I have since dropped the probelm speakers and now they are REALLY broken. :) Looks like I might be replacing them. Thanks again though! I appreciate your time. :)

First things First!
1) check on other speakers to see if your iPod work fine
2) check connector for loosing electric connectivity.
3) check with your headphones to see if your iPod play music well.
4) Check, power on the computer spk. you got. or the input that is working right.
Good Luck

Altec Lansing VS4121 speakers stopped working for no reason????

I had a similar set and they drove me mad because they hissed when they were switched off. I bought a pair of Bowers and Wilkins MM1 instead. Fabulous.

If you want yours fixed you would have to take them to an electronics engineer or return them.
