    Default Need help: anyone can do soldering?

    I have a set of Altec Lancing ACS48 speakers used for quite a few years for my PC. Solid performance, but I believe there might be some problem with the internal design. It stopped working two years ago and a friend of mine helped me repair it by replacing a diode. Now it stopped working again. I suspect it's the same problem. Unfortunately my friend is not in Singapore anymore Don't know if anyone is good at repairing electronic devices. Should be simple if u know how to do it. I'd rather repair it by paying a bit for your service than throw it away coz it's still going strong a few days back.

    I'll check out the cables again to make sure if it's really dead first. Thanks for any offer in advance

    Thanks Tom. HWZ looks a bit too messy these days.

    you can do so by using one of those amp meters.
    should be able to get them from the local hardware shop.

    If it is dead, go Creative warehouse sales and buy a new one!

    But personally i would not recommend creative - go get the $299 Aego2 2.1 system
