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.

No sound from one speaker. It's a new Altec Lansing VS2621 2.1 Channel Speaker System

Altec Lansing used to be good, but not any more. I had one that buzzed even when switched off. As it was in my bedroom, I put it all back in the box like new and gave it to a Christmas present drive for underprivileged children.

The speaker with the controls goes on the right. Here is the installation manual

https://www.manualslib.com/manual/365956/Altec-Lansing-Vs2621.html

Windows should find the driver, but here

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.

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,
