Altec lansing IM600, I plugged

I have an Altec lansing IM600, I plugged in an AC power input instead of the required 13 Volts DC input and I think the AC broke it. Can it be fixed? If so, how? Is what I did so stupid that the warranty won't cover it?

    the two responses I have received so far contradict each other and are rather generic. Can we try again?

Try bringing it into an electronic store such as a radioshack as they carry universal power supply's. The reason I saw bring it in is so they can match up the voltage and amperage requirments and they also need to match up the end that plugs(as there are 20 or so diamters of plugs) into your unit. I have run several radioshack stores in the past and this is a common occuracnce.

Good Luck

Hope this helps

Dear Sir/Madam,

No, it can't be fixed. It's a big mistake. The speaker with in-built amplifer will be burned. So u could change the transformer of the speaker. So go to authorised service centre and rechange the parts it will be worked. It can be repaired but with only authorised service centre only.

Thanks
Good Luck

    unless you have broke the warranty seal u have full rights to claim for a free service with in the warranty period.

    but for your advantage don't tell them that you connected it to AC and other stuff.

    just say them that its not working.

    let them find out and do what ever they want.

    but they should give you a free service surely.

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
http://buyersguide.bargainoffers.com/plug_adapter_guide.shtml 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 http://www.amazon.com/Travel-Voltage-Power-Converter-Adapter/dp/B001AHTEEU

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


If your TV has a variable audio output, yes.

http://reviews.cnet.com/pc-speakers/altec-lansing-expressionist-classic/4507-3179_7-33427969.html?tag=specs

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.

MY Altec lansing im620 just quit. I get no power at all. What could be the problem. George


Did you experience a storm recently...you may have received an electrical power surge...you can open the unit to see if the on board fuse is blown....just follow the power input cord to where it connects to the power supply...look for a small glass fuse...pop it out and see that the fine wire inside goes from one side to the other....the best way to check it though is to test it with an ohmmeter...if the fuse is good then there may be a problem in the power supply circuit that may need to be troubleshooted by a service tech
