Altec Lansing 621 Problem - pls help

Hi there, I saw your reply to one of the folks having the following problem:

Speakers were working fine this morning, I usually shut them off at all times after working on the computer, I went to log on and the speakers
would not turn on, maybe the button has a problem? everything was
correctly plugged in, any suggestions? they not even a year old yet!
Thanks in advance! Kris

I am using the Altec Lansing 621 and have facing the same problem. The subwoofer and 2 speakers have been working fine and I've been taking great care of them. Then, suddenly one day they just would not switch on (i.e. even the remote control LED does not come on).

What could be the issue here? I understand the power supply or switch might be faulty - how can I fix this?

Thanks in advance - Kenneth

    Hi Tempjoes, thanks for your reply.

    I don't know if the remote is powered by batteries - it is plugged directly to the sub-woofer - my impression is that draws power from the sub-woofer like the 2 satelite speakers.

    Having said that, if the remote uses batteries then they would be about 4.5 years old now...

    Hi Tempjoes, I opened the remote controller and found that there no batteries in there, which confirms that it draws power from the subwoofer. The Altec Lansing 621 is 4.5 years old.

    Speakers can be turned on via the controller, however, I cannot control the volume with the controller. Started to happen after a thunderstorm and figured the fuse was blown however this was not the case. Still no answer, could use some help!!!

    Hi Guys,

    I removed the fuse from the 621 and went down the the hardware store to buy a replacement fuse and give it a shot - and it worked! Really happy, - saved $$$ :)

I have an ALTEC LANSING speaker system with my PC. The specifications of the power adapter was 18V and 650milliamp output. The adapter is now unserviceable,I got a replacement adapter which is 18V and...


if the voltage and the polarity is the same, it will be fine. with amps, you want AT LEAST as many as the old adapter, or more.

more amps will not hurt, but more volts would hurt.

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.
