Hi drbrannan

You would need to replace the broken part. If it is just a part of the latch assembly broken, you can sometimes srot this out by putting a small knob of BluTac into the corner of the docking bay so that it can hold the door shut by adhesion. I have done this many times before when parts and door catches are hard to find or not justifiable spending a heap of cash sorting it out.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

I need a 9 volt adapter for an old altec lansing in-motion docking station that has changeable plugs that can be used anywhere in the world

what you need is a system with adapters, Europe uses one type, new Zealand and Australia use another, and of course America and Mexico you will need a transformer that will accept all of these since the used voltages changes, the America's use 110 volt systems while the Euro countries use the 220 volt system, just because a plug will fit into a socket doesn't mean its compatible with the system used in each country, if you look here you will see the different ones used in each country and you will need a converter like one of these depending on the amperage your system needs, along with the reducer for the required 9 volts for whatever it is your trying to use

Can i connect altec lansing expressionist classic speakers to a TV? if so, how? THX!

If your TV has a variable audio output, yes.

Plug them in directly to a compatible 3.5 mm output or adapt an RCA audio output to 3.5mm with a connector available at any electronics store like radio Shack.

In your TV audio menu select "variable" for the audio out. Otherwise they'll always be at maximum volume.
