My speker doesnt have a power when i turn the ****? what might causing this problem? ive checked the connection and everything, it works just great last week and **w ** power i,ve even change the outlet where it is plugged. pls help me thx
There is an internal fuse in the Altec Lansing Speakers ..BUT BE CERTAIN TO DISCONNECT THE POWER LEAD BEFORE MAKING THE FOLLOWING REPAIR.AS IT CAN BE DEADLY!!!
If you remove the larger screws from the back of the unit then remove the top section with the circuit board attached. Next remove the screws attached to the bass speaker as you will need to remove the speaker to replace the fuse.
Once the speaker screws are removed there is a little recessed slot in the timber for you to put two fingers in to lift the speaker out. It may offer a little resistence as there is a dab of glue holding the cables into the cabinet next to the speaker.
Once you have the speaker removed double check that you have disconnected the correct power lead to your ATP3.. The fuse is easily visible so pull it out and check with meters to see that it has not blown.
Alternatively take a 9 volt battery ( the type with both terminals at the top of the battery). Place your tongue over both terminals to verify it has a charge (you will feel a slight tingle on your . tongue).
Next place one end of the removed fuse on one of the terminals.. now short curcuit the other end with your tongue touching both the unconnected end of the fuse to the other unconnected terminal ... this should complete a circuit and give you a slight tingle.. ( it wont hurt you!) If there is no tingle the battery is either flat or you have a blown fuse.
If the fuse is OK, then chances are you have a faulty pin connector - your "right out" connector. Sometimes these get bumbed with the feet if you have it on the floor and they can lose the contact needed to switch your unit on.
You then need to either re-solder the pin out socket on the circuit board or repair the cable that plugs into it.
If someone has worked out how to solder a jumper lead on the board at the pinouts you may be able to have the power on permanently and then use the wall switch to turn it off and on.

You could have blown an internal fuse depending on the power options and how long and high you had them. The definate way to know is to try them on another computer. To they turn on at all or is there just no sound. If they turn on, jus without sound then you may have blown a speaker but if the don;t even turn on then maybe you blew a fuse. Either way the damage is not really fixable. Also, did you check your device? The power (volume) may not be high enough on the device. If using a computer then goto volume control and check each setting on the pannel for mute, balance options and most importantly, volume. One seemingly unimportant seeting could be the difference between hearing and not hearing your valuable system beeps and music.
