Question about Altec Lansing VS2121 Computer Speakers
I turned the volume (on the computer) down to nothing, then increased it again, and only one speaker came back with sound. The other speaker has a hissing sound when you put your ear to it, but no music comes out of it!? Have worked fine for 2 years, so can you please tell me what might be the problem?? I have unplugged and retried to no avail. Hope you can help! I have had a pair of Altec Lansing VS2121 speakers for about 1-2 years and have worked great. Until one day I had turned on my comp and only one speaker was working, weird part is that the none working speaker is the one that has the controls on it (volume, head jack etc.) my problem comes when I attempt to open it up to see what exactly is the problem, there doesn't seem to be a way to open it without breaking it or if its just all glued together. There are no screws that keep the cases closed just a little grill looking thing covering the speakers which have 4 screws but cant get to the volume controller part. If anyone has opened one up or has any suggestions please let me know. Thankyou much.
I called Altec Lansing Technical Support:
535 Route 6 & 209
Milford, Pennsylvania 18337-0277
They stated that the case is not made to be opened (Great Design...NOT!) They suggested I remove the sub-woofer cable and clean the pins with alcohol. Of course, you should remove the AC plug first.
One other suggestion I would make as a last resort, for this and other problems. With the unit unplugged, pull off the Volume Control Knob, and the sfx knobs. Spray electrical contact cleaner in the openings, and hope it reaches the dirty areas.
Make sure all the cleaner has evaporated before reconnecting the unit.

First things first:
1) check your speaker for good connector, and all is working is playing fine.
2) check if your warranty covers one SPK. or RMS
other than that ,

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to cd/dvd rom drives right click properties then properties again then tick enable cd digital cd audio for this cd rom device or scroll to dvd regions select the no _ for your specific area
you might need to select stereo speakers
click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there also if you have the right ones selected
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your sound card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
hope this helps
