Altec Lansing VS2121 Computer Speakers - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

I guess you have tried switching the speaks left to right to check its the speaker rather than the output to the speaker?

If you have it might be worth (If you are able to) opening up the speaker unit to check the wires are still attached and solid, maybe need a little re-solder is needed as the wires are usually very thin.

yes you need sound drivers
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the sound drivers could be on it
control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or
audio you will find 3 drop down lists make the necessary adjustments there or
control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound video and game controllers could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list

First, I would verify that the speakers have power. If they do, I would then check to see if the cables are firmly seated and in the appropriate jack (ie. not the microphone). If all of that is OK, then I would see if the computers audio is on mute (if so the speaker icon in the lower right hand corner will have an "X" on it) as well as adjusting the volume knob on the speakers. If your computer has multiple audio devices, make sure the appropriate device is selected for playback. If all else fails, I would then try to unistall and reinstall the audio device driver within device manager.

Also, If possible, I would test the speaker system on another device (ie. portable stereo/cd player/MP3 player) to narrow down the root cause of the issue.

buy your self a external sound card dude, the one on your laptop or pc is prob dead. problem solved..

Altec Lansing... | Answered on Sep 11, 2010 | 162 views

theres no on/off button for the subwoofer. once you plugged in the power cable,turn on the speaker system by turning the VOLUME knob on the right satellite until you hear a click sound.
An LED will light on the front of the right satellite when the power is ON. if you still dont hear any sound from the sub woofer then check to make sure that all cables are connected properly and are making a clear connection.

hope this help

I have the speakers ( in perfect condition) but can not find the base unit. Do you want to sell your base unit ? Or do you want to buy the speakers ?

If google and manufacturer website are of no help then ask a search agency like - They do a great job.
The service is not for free, but often worthy (you only pay if they find what you are asking for).

If you have ATT cell service, this happens when phones get too close to electronic devices. Move the phone away from devices. And when/if you live near a local radio station, or their antenna....a good chance that electronic devices will act like antennas, thus picking up radio signals.

Thank you for your query

Please try the following

1) Ensure your speakers are correctly plugged into the back of the PC they should be plugged into a light green port
2) ensure the volume control on the speakers are turning and you have set them to a decent level
3) Click on Start>Control Panel>sounds and audio devices and ensure the volume is up and the volume is not muted

Please try the above

try to install your sound (audio) drivers and try to insert the pins in line in ports your work is done...

Good day heigei, hi if you turn on the speakers but no ON lights came on, the problem is your Speakers' power supply stage, either a fuse opens (most likely) or something got burnt from the plug to the transformer, then to the rectifier diodes (got shorted then fuse opens) or to the regulator section. check also the power switch for poor contacts, of course you may need to open the speakers, If by any chance you hear something like hum.... check for open signal wire, check the IC amplifier also, a bad IC amplifier produce no sound or produce a loud humming/cracking sound. If you have no idea of what im talking about, have it checked by a technician. thats it.

It's not your speakers that are the issue most likely (as long as they are round ends with sort of a point (not sharp just like a .5" length cylinder like .25" thick) instead of a rectangular USB connection. If you post more information about your computer we could probably direct you to the drivers you need to download in order to resolve the issue.

First things first
1) check cable for bad connectivity or dust. clean .
2) your board or volume control may be damage, or dust inside clean carefully ( if you can) with air spray for computers.
3) I hate to tell, .....change your speakers, may be is bad IC on board for speakers.
