Question about PreSonus Firebox 6x10 External Sound System

1 Answer

Doesn´t work anymore

Connected my laptop to the firebox and the blue (or red) light doesn´t turn on anymore. The same happened when I plugged the power adaptor. The computer doesn´t recognize it anymore. It´s weird because it was working perfectly a few hours before and it happened without an apparent reason. It didn´t fall from its place or was hit.

    Same here, have used my Firebox for almost three years. I moved my PC into another room and it stopped working! I have encountered problem after problem w/ Firebox. It worked then minutes later stopped and now the PC doesn't recognize Firebox.

    What gives? Anyone?

Hi. Forgive me for asking, but did you try unplugging everything, including the firewire, and plugging it in again?

If you try this and it doesn't work, try shutting your laptop down gracefully, then unplug all the Firebox connectors including the electricity. Wait about 10 seconds, then reboot your laptop. Don't open your recording software yet.

Connect the electricity and the firewire as described in the Firebox manual, and then open your recording software. If this doesn't work, something might be wrong with the Firebox.

The problem you have happens once in a while with mine--it seems to be connected with overheating or something. Anyone else have this problem?

Good luck!

Power button not turning on headset


I'm guessing at some point I pressed down too hard on the power button and either broke something or mis-aligned it to what mattered. <br /> If this happens to you: <ol> <li>Plug the headset into the (connected) USB power cord</li> <li>Blue light comes on</li> <li>Unplug - Headset should remain on</li></ol> <ul> <li> If you leave it plugged in until it turns red (charging) then it will turn off when you unplug it.</li> <li> If your headset doesn't show a blue light or any indication of life, something beyond the power button is wrong.</li></ul>

I have a Toshiba Tecra-M2-S410 machine, and it does not turn on anymore. When I remove the battery and plug it in, the power light turns green as expected. When I press the power button, two other lights...


Hi mohammad - seems the LCD of the laptop is gone bad . as u said u gets the light on the laptop and also sound and then it goes dark - shows possibly the LCD gone bad .
Give a try with this if you have a computer in your home - on the back of the monitor you will find a VGA cable (probably with a blue color end which goes to cpu ) unplug it from cpu and plug it in the laptop (side of laptop you will find a same input VGA slot blue color ) and boot your laptop after turning on both (monitor and laptop) if you find the screen on the monitor then it will be sure that your laptop LCD has gone bad .
On your laptop if you are not able to find the boot screen also that refers to LCD brokerage -anyway try the above you will be sure ..

Presonus Firebox doesn't sync up.


1. check the drivers update for you device
This is found at the manufacturers site.
2. See if your device is compatible with the OS (operating system) on your laptop.
3. Check the connecting cable to see if you have a broken wire inside the "strain relief".
The cord at this point will have a puffy part that indicate that there is a broken cable.

My firebox just seemed to stop connecting. the blue light comes on for a second then goes red on both firewire ports...is it my fire wire card on my pc or the firebox?


IF YOU HAD ANY RECENT UPDATES ON YOUR PC.IT MAY HAVE CHANGED SOME DRIVER SETTINGS. UPDATE YOUR DRIVER ON THE PRESONUS WEBSITE. IT COULD ALSO BE A BAD CABLE.

Pinnacle Video Transfer: at REC, all lights turn red--except USB


how about deleting all the software of that device and reinstalling it as a new device.

the program may have corrupted the flash drive and all the data that is on it and when you pluged into any other device it may of worked a few time but that it will start corrupting everything you have plugin your flash drive into.

you are going to reformat the flash drive and re install any type of drivers for the flash drive and check every where you have used the flash drive has not corrupt any of the systems you are using.

let hope we got it before you loose your intire system due to corrupted software downloads or uploads to flash drive and computer system and this may include a network if you are on one.

I need help resetting firebox firewall password


You can always do a hard reset to the soho, but backup your system settings for this will factory reset the box because it will erase everything!
1) Unplug any devices from the all ports.
2)Unplug power cord.
3)Use paperclip to hold reset button.
4)While continuing to hold the reset button plug the power back in.
5)Watch the status light in front, when it turns on(the red light) wait until it turns back off, then release the reset button.

The whole reset process is about a one minute wait for the status light.
