Question about Altec Lansing iM3 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

My Altec Lansing IM3 no longer works with the AC power adapter but does in battery mode. Does that mean I need a new power adapter or could the circuitry on the iM3 be faulty? I play this with my iPod.

    Thanks, Fredy2.
    That was helpful.
    The voltmeter is a good idea. If it has power going through it, the adapter is probably OK and its the connection on the iM3 side. If that's the case,I'll just use it in battery mode when I travel because fixing the input jack on the iM3 side would cost as much as a new unit. thanks again.

The power adapter could be bad BUT also the jack it plugs into may be bad. It will have a switch to disconnect the battery when adapter is plugged in.

You need to get a voltmeter and check the output of the adapter. OFTEN the cable beaks where it flexes. Sometimes the cable can be spliced, but DO be careful to not reverse the wires.

Power cord makes a chirping sound and won't supply power to M602. Do I need to buy a new power cord and if so where?


My experience is that when AC adapters start making strange sounds, they're no longer usable (or at least reliable), and need to be replaced.

I'd suggest calling Altec Lansing to see where you can get a replacement power supply.

No power to speakers


Lol, sounds like that iPod sucked the power out of your house. Just kidding. If it is plugged into a wall outlet, make sure that the conections are not bent or warped in any way (remeber this stuff is very fragile so look for the smallest stuff). If it is plugged into one of those multi outlet devils, make sure that is not too clogged up. For those I always use the Male Bathroom Ediquate rule, never stand (nor plug) next to a guy in another urinal.
