Question about Altec Lansing VS4121 Speaker

Left Speaker Stopped Working

Suddenly, after a good year and a half or so of no problems, my left speaker (the one without the power button or volume) stopped producing sound. You could hear the faint hiss that the speakers give off when the unit is on and the volume is up, but no input; the right speaker is perfect though.

I plugged in a speaker borrowed from a 5.1 speaker set to the dysfunction left speaker plug but again, hiss, no sound. I'm guessing something internal may be bad. Any thoughts?

I think I had a similar problem. My speakers were brand new and after a while I lost my front left and rear left speaker. I'm not sure about you guys but after fiddling around with the settings it worked after I changed the "S/PDIFoutput sample rate" from 48 to 96 khz. I have no clue what I did, but it worked for me. I am running logitech something or rather speakers with VIA HD audio deck drivers

This really sounds like a wiring problem. I would start from scratch, seeing as how it will be difficult to find the issue you describe. Also, if you can, solder your connections to the radio. If you used crimp butts they may not have been tight enough and vibrated loose with use of the boat. Hope this helps

You 'looked' at the wiring but have proven it is defective by swapping the speaker independent of the wiring. What's next? Replace the bad wiring.

I have the same problem sir, only the speaker with volume
control works. Earlier I used to twist the volume control this
way and that way to get the sound from the other speaker also.
Now the same technique doesn't work anymore.

Strange problems with Z-2300's


I'm having this same problem and have sort of solved it with a really wierd technique I found at Logitech. Evidently this problem is related to the control pod rather then the RCA jack. Try this:

Unplug the control pod from the subwoofer Turn off the main switch Turn the volume knob one full turn, tap the knob Repeat again (2 times) Replug the control pod Turn on the main switch and the control pod See what happens

I found that this got the speaker working finicky after it was almost totally useless. It seems to be cutting out randomly, but fidgeting with the control pod or it's connector jack fixes it. No clue what the deal is here, but your problem is identical to mine so take some time to screw around with these components with music running so you can hear if it suddenly works.

Left speaker blown or melted?


This isn't usually in the satellite speakers. The amplifier is usually in the sub and these have a bad habbit of blowing/burning up. Return or replace. Pretty common in this model.
