Question about Altec Lansing VS4121 Speaker

1 Answer

My Altec Lansing VS4121 played excellent sound, even at high volume untill recently. A friend had borrowed them for weeks and I got them back recently. Played music to find out that sound of main woofer rattles/makes noise at high volume. I tired playing it with different computers, ipod, different kind of music but the problem persist. Can this problem be fixed?

    I had guess that part about the 'loose connection'. I posted my problem at FixYa to get a more reliable and easier solution than opening the box, which is obvious and last option..

    I hope a local technician helps to fix the problem.

    I am sorry ynogami. I paid Fixya 12$ hoping to get more. I am NOT at all SATISFIED with the FixYA service.

    I understand what you mean. No offense to you Ynogami.

    All I said was I am not SATISFIED with FixYa service for my problem. I do not think it was worth 12$.

Hi there,
I think that some wirings inside the main woofer or the tray holding it might have loosed. It could be the speakers were accidentally dropped or anything.
You can bring it to a local store Best Buy, Staples, etc. have it checked by one of them technicians or to see if it can be put back to it's place. I'm no speakers expert but that's the only reason I could think of.
If you are comfortable opening the speaker covers and checking inside the speakers then you can also try to check for some loose parts.
Hope this helps!

    I guess that it is and the only option to take care of this problem because it is still hardware related and I guess that it's for the better. Don't worry I'm sure that once that loose end is tighted the speakers will go back the way it is before.

    I totally understand where you are coming from, but I guess there in no other way to get this problem fixed since it's the physical side of the speaker that has a problem.
    Being connected over the internet gives us limitations to what we can do. But I'm so sure that once a technician looks at it he will immediately find whats wrong and can get this done for you in no time.

    Don't worry no offense taken. I'm just trying to explain the limitations that we have.

I had a similar set and they drove me mad because they hissed when they were switched off. I bought a pair of Bowers and Wilkins MM1 instead. Fabulous.

If you want yours fixed you would have to take them to an electronics engineer or return them.

Hi, I got Altec Lansing Speakers VS4121, and when I plug it in the audio jack, my computer doesn't even recognize them, can you help me please ?


Check the audio by inserting headphone in the audio jack to make sure that the jack is functional. if it is not, check the sound driver (START>Control Panel>Sound) to make sure it is on and the vollume is turned up.
What is version of the operating system are you using? Do you have a separate sound board or is it integrated into the motherboard? Do you have the manufacturer of the system and the model number so that i can recommend drivers if they are necessary?
Thanks.

LOL. This is a common, easily solveable problem. Remove your cellphone or anything that emits radiation of any sort from the general area. Don't believe me? send a text message while sitting net to your computer. It does this even if you arent sending a message because your phone sends intermittent signals to the cell tower.

It is unlikely that this is a problem with your speakers more likely that it is a problem with the DVD player itself. I would recomend trying another DVD player.

Vs4121 altec lansing left speaker wire ripped.


Black should be ground and red is usually the actual audio cable. If you connect them wrong the should not short. They will just sound weird until you connect them properly.

Hope this Helps
