Hello
If subwoofer is inactive now, the sound preference settings you set now is wrong.

Before using the remote control for the following
operation

above. In such a case, follow each instruction

Whent I connet my android to my samsung HTC55 using the aux 2, just one speaker work, that is correct? is there a way to connect my android and all my speakers work


Your Android phone can only output in mono or stereo, but it does not have a surround sound decoder, so it cannot output natively to a 5.1 surround sound system. However, your HTC550 has a Surround Sound Mode called Dolby Pro Logic II, which will simulate 5.1 sound from any stereo input. Try activating Dolby Pro Logic II mode on your receiver to get surround sound on your Android phone.

Hi there,
Check that your computer doesn't have a microphone (internal maybe) and that it's not switched on.
Cheers.

Connected to laptop with vista via USB connection to speakers - NO sound


A letter from Altec: E-mail from Altec Lansing explaining how to use the ACS 495 speakers with Windows XP and Vista: "These speakers require no special drivers or software to work properly. At the current time we do not have AMS software or an USB audio device driver compatible with Windows XP or Vista. There are no plans at this time to develop this software. Your speakers will work with Windows XP & Vista. Just make sure you use the audio cable from the back of the subwoofer to the audio or sound out port of your sound card. Do not use the USB cable. Sound does not come through the USB port The USB cable just allows you to use the AMS software. This software gives you some control over some of the sound features. The same functionality of the AMS software can be gotten by using the buttons on the speakers and the volume control software that comes with your Windows system. If you double click the speaker icon from the system tray, that will open this software up. With the USB connector removed or the computer turned off, STEREO or PRO LOGIC modes can be selected by depressing and holding the center control down for approximately three seconds. The mode selected will be indicated by the color of the LED on the front right speaker. When the light glows yellow it is in the STEREO mode. When the light is green it is in the PRO LOGIC mode."

Try making sure the surround sounds knob is turned all the way to the right and that the switch on the subwoofer is on stereo and not gaming.

I have altec lansing speakers AVS500 and have no sound


It sounds like the subwoofer speaker has blown. If you are comfortable working with a soldering iron and speakers then you can open the case and replace the speaker with a replacement subwoofer speaker. A good online store for replacement speakers is PartsExpress.com

It depends on what you want. Is your existing solution a surround sound system (You only mention a subwoofer, what other speakers do you have?)? Do you want full 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound? If you don't have this, and want it, your amp will have to be replaced, but your sub will fit in just fine. If you currently only have front left and right speakers, you will need to purchase a centre speaker and another pair (5.1) or two pairs (7.1) of speakers.
