I've owned a FX5051 surround system for four years and I love the system, but unfortunately the DIN plug on the controller got bent during the move from Arizona to Montana. I would like to know if there's anything that I can do to get the system back up again. I already called tech support and they couldn't find another controller, and I myself haven't been able to find another one ether. Is there anything that I can do to get this fixed, and is it even worth asking a computer repair shop if they can fix it?
here's a hack!
bend the pins to correct position using a small pliers
in event of broken pins, just cut a small needle size of pin, poke into female and trim it a little poking out.
connect the connectors tightly together. it might crackle but it'll work.....

Hy to all, i`m a new user with a bit of a problem, i have a Altec Lansing VS2120 with a bad volume knob, it "crackles" when i turn it and i have to spin it very, very, very gentle so i can find a position which both speaker will work. I want to fix this problem but i cant seem to find a way to take it apart.
I`ve tried poking it where i draw the orange box with no success, i`ve looked for screws, but none found, only managed to pull out the speaker.
Thanks in advance
wd40 damages plastic parts and makes your set greasy. instead use alcohol.....
drip a copious amount into seams of volumer and tweak it all the way up and down roughly and fast until the alcohol evaporates. repeat until satisfactory
if you can't get alcohol... lighter fluid (zippoi fluid) will do just as good
