Question about Altec Lansing SoundBar FX3020 Computer Speakers
I inadvertently plugged a 12V dc supply into my soundbar, instead of the supplied 5V. i sensed something was wrong immediately after i turned the unit on because there was a soft crackling noise then smoke came out of the unit. i unplugged it immediately but the damage was done. after pluggin it in to the correct power supply, it wouldn't turn on anymore. i have some skill in electronic repair, but i'd prefer knowing what i'd need to replace than have to figure it out myself... please help. thanks.

Best bet would be to just strip the wire with a wire stripper or utility knife and twist the bare ends together to fix the connection. A little electrical tape around those wires and you should be almost good as new. Of course you might notice some difference in quality but I'm pretty sure the only way round that would be replacing the cable.
Try it out and let me know how it works out for you. If you know how to solder it might be a good idea to solder the connection as well.

I had the same problem. One day I heard two pops and the speaker, including the power light, were dead. Neither Dell nor Altec Lansing support them. They're throw-aways, unless you know a genius electronics technician.

It is written on the sub. You can also take it out or look at the spare which is taped to the power cord wall plug. I believe it's T1A 250V fuse

I did the same! Thanks for suggesting a call to Customer Support (800)258+3288. The guy didn't seem overly pleased to help, but he did promise to send me a new power supply. Also, he said that they don't make the iM7 anymore, but I had already found out that the iM9 uses the same power supply. I, too, will wait and see.

With the unit turned on...
Press the following front panel buttons in sequence within a 10 second span:
[Vol+] / [Vol-] / [Vol+] / [Vol-] / [Vol+] / [Vol-]
Successful unlock is indicated when the front panel led's flash.
