Altec Lansing ACS295 Sound Control Dial

Slowly the sound control dial stopped working on our ASC295 right speaker. It's a top mounted dial, and the part number attached to the chip board is hard to tell read as I can't find a magnifying glass. If there's any other details that I'm leaving out let me know. Thank you in advance.

Check your connector on the back of the subwoofer. Your control pot is feeding clock signals to the control chip in the subwoofer box circuit board. Better yet get rid of the connectors and solder the wires on the pc board. If that doesn't work, the controller chip on the pc board has gone bad.

My sugestion would be to use windows volume control. Control pots are mechanical and they will eventualy fail. It sounds like you have a dead spot on the control and it needs to be moved to a spot on the control pot where it can make better contact. I would sugest to turn it about halfway, then use the volume in windows. This cant fail since its all done with the opperating system. Even if you get another set they will eventualy do the same thing.

My Seiki tv sound is distorted ,sounds like the old "dial-up" internet connections we used to have, only louder/more pronounced. Is maybe the sudio "chip/board/circuitry" FRIED/diabled/malfunctioning?


Check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Sub Speaker giving intermittent loud crackling and sharp loud popping sounds even with main volume control turned off. Crackling sound can be reduced by turning sub volume control off.


It may be the control itself too. In time, these controls can get dust build up inside it. There are volume control spray cleaners available from Radio Shack or other electronic parts stores. The cheat on cleaning the control is to just rotate it from stop to stop as many times as it takes to clear the noise.

Screen suddenly has only a thin bright middle


If it has a white line in the middle running left to right the problem is in the vertical circuit.

This can come with age as solder connections (this is the most common cause) come loose or break at the chip in that circuit.

Much of the time with set on a good hard rap on the top or side and the line will try to open and return a full picture.

Someone who can get to it and can solder can fix that---the chip will usually have 7-13 pins and be mounted on a metal plate that is fairly small(it keeps the part cool)---fixed a lot in less than ten minutes.

You will have to open the set, locate the chip(usually a location number on top of board by it will be something like IC301 or 401).

Most of the chips will have a generic number on them a LA------ or such. You will have to remove the board to look at the bottom where the chip solders in.


I attach a photo of a typical chip.
Let me know if questions

I had a dell 2700 computer working with altec asc295 speakers and the dell crashed. i connected the acs295 speakers to my other dell 4700 and they don't operate.


First the easy things. Are you sure you plugged the speakers in the correct socket.
Are you sure the speakers are plugged in and the power switch on.
Is the volume turned up on the speakers.
Is the volume turned up on the computer, Not just the program you're running but also from the tiny speaker icon at the bottom right of your screen.
Have you checked the sound card (if it's not a built in system) is correctly inserted.
It sometimes helps, if it's a plug in card to remove the card, clean the card's contacts with clean white paper and then plug the card back in.
Check the card is actually working by plugging in another set of borrowed speakers.
Ensure you have drivers loaded for the sound card.
Check the system manager in your control panel and make sure there's no conflicts.

BE CAREFUL WITH THIS ONE......

Grab an almost flat AA or AAA battery and connect intemittedly one lead of the speaker to one end and the other wire to the opposite end of the battery. If you hear a clear crackle in time with the touching of the wires then the speaker should be OK. If you have a multimeter, switch it to OHMS and check the speakers on it's low setting. It should register around 4 Ohms. Even on high settings the meter will show a bunch of zeros or if it's a meter the needle will swing right across the dial.

If all these pass then I would be checking with a substitute sound card. But this would involve loading the appropriate drivers too.

Good luck.

Computer not seeing Altec Lansing BX1020 speakers


go to start>settings control panel> click on system then click on device manager. Make sure that everything is working properly then in control panel click sound. if that is all working. Make sure you have the speakers connected in the right spot. You may also want to try the speakers on another computer to isolate exactly what the problem is.
Thank you,
