Having problems with your Altec Lansing Multimedia Computer Speakers ?

Altec Lansing ada745

\015 My problem is the prongs on the right front speaker have broken off. Is there any way to rig up this speaker so it will work again. None of my speakers work now. I hate to throw them away and I called Altec Lansing and these are obsolete now. Cant get a replacement right front speaker(the only one with power to it)\015

I work for a charity that had one of these donated today and as I was looking for a new sub for my cinema system I purchased it. I have no other speakers with it and no way of switching or varying the volume. I opened up the back of the sub and slid the board partly out exposing the PCB.

\015\012You'll see 3 solder connections behind the scre in an "L" configuration. One of them is common, one volume and one power on. As I don't need volume, I'm happy with it being on full as my cinema system will vary the input, I joined all 3 together giving power on and full volume. It is working great now.

\015\012For you guys with volume controls, I would suggest shorting out the two rightmost pins in the "L" and I recon this will power it up and try varying your volume control. I recon it'll work just great.

\015\012Good luck
Oh, my goodness.  I have the exact same problem, and it just happened to me today as well, same model.  The fifth prong got bent in while I was trying to plug it back in after diagnosing a different issue (speaker volume would randomly jump up and down regardless of audio source).\015\012
\015\012It looks like a PS/2 style connector with one of the top pins missing, so I thought about taking an old PS/2 plug and grafting it on after breaking off one of those pins, but the center plastic block on the PS/2 connector is unfortunately keyed differently than the speaker plug (it's lower down on the PS/2 plug).

I have a set of Altec Lansing ADA745 speakers that are now about 6 years old. In the last few months the sound level has gradually faded to near zero...even with all of the volumn controls set to max. Given the wiring arrangemnt on these speakers I don't believe that I can try them out on another computer. Hence I don't know if the problem is with the sound board, the sub woofer, or the volumn control on one of the four speakers. Does anybody have a clue as to what has gone wrong. BTW: I hav

Hi I have an Altec Lansing ADA745 speaker and sub-woofer for my PC. Unfortunately, the one of the small pins (in the 5 pin DIN plug) that connects the primary speaker to the sub-woofer has broken and rendered the speakers silent! Does anyone know the best route to get this fixed? For example, buy another 5 pin din plug (and if so, which model), buy the speaker (with working connection), etc? Thanks Paul

I am a regular Dell customer. Received Altec Lansing ADA745 Speakers with my Dell Computer. The cable from "right front" speaker has a broken wire or loose connection in the plug.It isthe "power connection wire" for a short while was able to make it work by moving cable around as it came out of the plug but no more.
