Question about Altec Lansing 5100 Computer Speakers

Open Question

During the speaker configuration in control panel (windows 7 ultimate) the center and subwofer make no sound, but windows recognizes that noise is being made represented by the green bar rising. However, when I listen to music or play games, both the sub and center speaker work just fine. I think this problem is also related to ventrilo application. When I have my speakers configured to stereo (2 speakers) I can hear people over my speakers, however when I set it to 5.1 surround I cannot hear them. Please advise.

SOURCE: One speaker not working

I called Altec Lansing Technical Support:

Altec Lansing
535 Route 6 & 209
Milford, Pennsylvania 18337-0277
T. 866-570-5702
T. 570-296-4434
F. 570-296-6887

They stated that the case is not made to be opened (Great Design...NOT!) They suggested I remove the sub-woofer cable and clean the pins with alcohol. Of course, you should remove the AC plug first.

One other suggestion I would make as a last resort, for this and other problems. With the unit unplugged, pull off the Volume Control Knob, and the sfx knobs.  Spray electrical contact cleaner in the openings, and hope it reaches the dirty areas.

Make sure all the cleaner has evaporated before reconnecting the unit.

Good Luck

SOURCE: only one speaker works - altec lansing computer speakers ADA215

The solution is actually quite simple, due to a design flaw. Altec lansing designed a rather cheap mini din plug-in which can either be replaced or repaired depending on your skill and patience level. Your ground contact is fine BUT the positive contact is not making connection due to the fact that the plastic housing has broken away and pulled the contact with it. This can be super glued back into place or just replaced with a new mono minidin plug-in.
