Question about Altec Lansing VS2121 Computer Speakers
I've had these vs2121 for maybe a couple of years now and all of the sudden I noticed that whenever I touch the volume knob, the speakers will like crackle or shut off or one you can barely hear and the other is fine. I think it's a problem with some wire connections inside the speakers themselves. Like the potentiometer or what ever it uses to control the volume has worn out. Does anyone know how to fix the speakers? (there out of warrenty)
This is a problem with poor cold soldering at the bootom of the volume pot, what has to be done is slowly seperate the glued seem where both speaker halfs are "glued"LOl... yes glued together,...Use a small flat head screw driver of any sort and work the way around it and it will seperatel and then resolder the volume pots circuit board pins, then use ABS to glue it back together, dont foregt to get the blue LED power light indicator set right before pressing both sides together.... (^_^)

I'm having the exact same problem right now. I find that if I push the volume knob in as hard as I can that seems to fix the problem temporarily.
I'm thinking about turning the volume up about midway and never touching it again, just using the software volume control on the computer to control my audio from now on.
