Controller for Altec Lansing XA3051

I need to replace the wired controller to my son's 5:1 PC speaker system.
Without it the speakers are useless but even more so is the Company. They say they don't carry any more parts and have no more information about this Model. I bought it almost 2 years ago. If I had the plug ID # to the end I can repair it myself. But the Tech guy at Altec said they don't even know what part that is.

PLEASE HELP

If you plug it in to your computer, a freeware program may still be able to recognize it and give you exact model numbers and IDs--worth a shot, and you'll love the program anyway--Belarc Advisor. It lists all hardware and software, model numbers, keys, etc. Hope it helps.

    PS--the least hassle may be to buy used on EBay. One is for sale for buy-it-now for $45 with shipping as we speak.

    I found the user's manual athttp://audio.manualsonline.com/manuals/m...
    It is fairly useless. The only troubleshooting tips for "Controller
    doesn’t work" are:

    "Verify that the grey-colored DIN connector is firmly inserted into the DIN connector jack on the subwoofer.
    Ensure the pins are aligned between the plug and jack.
    Remember, the arrow should be facing up."

    Perhaps your arrow is not facing up. Hmmm.

7 WIRES , WHAT COLOR GOES TO WHICH PIN? 2 BLACK , 1 GREEN, ONE YELLOW, ONE WHITE, 2 ORANGE, ONE HEAVIER THAT THE OTHER


Hi Jerry
What Model....?
Using a mobile phone camera would have helped in this situation.
Before taking things apart

I'll be very surprised if someone has the same speaker system in bits somewhere
An electronics guy would trace the wire back to it's source to decide what it's being used for.
Good Luck

Altec lansing mx5021 wired controller not working


Sounds like you might have a wire loose at the other side of the controller. This is a easy thing to find out. Just unscrew the side screws that hold the back board to the cabinet. Don't unscrew the screws connected to the speaker wire clips unless the back doesn't come off. Just look for a disconnected wire at the controller jack then put it back. If there is no loose wire then you might have a bent female contact at the outside of the controller jack. You would have to look for this looking into the holes where you plug the cable into the controller jack. If you see a bent contact then use a thin nail of ice pick and insert it into the hole where the bent connector is to try to re open the contact so the cable can slip into it easy. Don't forget to unplug the power first.

Dell (Altec Lansing) A425 Subwoofer Pinouts

This is a standard female DB-9 serial port.
Here are the pinouts.

Pin 1 = Left Speaker Out +

Pin 2 = Left Speaker Out - (Common Ground)

Pin 3 = Left Line In +

Pin 4 = Right Line In +

Pin 5 = Left/Right line In - (Common Ground)

Pin 6 = Right Speaker Out +

Pin 7 = Right Speaker Out - (Common Ground)

Pin 8 = Power A

Pin 9 = Power B

Jumper (short) Power A to B to turn on.
If you want a volume control you need to put one on the inputs. You will buy buy a stereo volume control or potentiometer.
Here is some info on how to do this.

You may be out of luck. Apparently, Altec is no longer supporting this product (2002) and the user's manual provides no specifications for the power supply. You can try asking them at 1-800-ALTEC-88 (1-800-258-3288) or Email: csupport@alteclansing.com

The manual is at http://audio.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/altec_lansing_technologies/xa3051.html

I had the same problem. After numerous calls to Altec Lansing they sent me out a new one. The new one doesn't have the same connector on it. I called tech support only to hear that they discontinued the 621 and don't make parts for it. Sorry, you are probably out of luck.
