    There is something rattling around inside my mbox 2 and I can't figure out what it is, I need detailed instructions on dissassembling the casing so I can remove what ever it is rattling inside it, before it causes a short inside it.

  • Anonymous Mar 27, 2009



    I found two screws under the rubber "feet" of the casing and I did find the one under the CE label on the bottomof the box, but what else is there? The blue plastic front cover does not have any screws (at least not visible!)

    Is the abovementioned the same Mbox 2 Pro that I have?
    Mine does not have any "handle", so I didn´t find how to open the "allen key" part... Actually I didn´t yet find out how to open my Mbox.

    I have a bit of a similar problem and i have to get inside my Mbox!
    Could someone help me?

M-Box 2 Pro- 2 small black screws under rubber "feet" on the bottom(back)- 1 shiny screw under "CE" sticker on bottom- 10-12 small black screws under the faceplate sticker= DUMB- then one more small army of small black screws to get the faceplate off the metal casing-(remove carefully as there is a small ribbon connector from the faceplate to the chassis-pull up on small black sides where it connects to the faceplate.)- pop off top- reveals about a dozen small shiny screws holding the two "mother boards" together-left off there because I only needed to get to the volume resistor. good luck with the rest. good design too Digidesign.

There are five shiny screws and one black one located behind the plastic front label (the part that has the markings for the input levels and switches), plus three behind the serial number label, inside the handle part you open with the allen key. This removes the front panel, then, there are about twelve screws around the plastic casing, attaching the casing to the inner metal encasing.

There are three screws behind the foam strip on the metal casing, which attach a heavy duty metal strip to the inner casing... the rest are obvious.


This is how to deconstruct the casing in the event that something is rattling inside.

Keep in mind, if you still have a warranty on your MBOX 2, you won't anymore once you deconstruct it. So I don't advise it unless your device is well past warranty.

Though, if something is indeed rattling inside, I'm sure that's a breach of warranty conditions anyway.
You had best check on that first, but you might end up taking her apart anyway.

Installed pro tools 8 on macbook pro. when i try to open pro tools it says the hardware cannot be found. mbox2 is connected but the usb light is not on.


I had this problem as well... If this is a 2011 macbook pro you have os 10.6.7 which is not supported by avid at this time. We actually need to down grade to 10.6.6. You installation cd with your macbook pro is 10.6.6, so you'll need to install that, then go to the avid website and download pro tool le 8.0.5. Everything should work fine just don't upgrade to 10.6.7 until it has been approved by avid. If you need detailed steps look at the avid forum for pro tools. Step to uninstalling and installing the os can be found on youtube.com... Do not have your mbox plugged in when you install pro tools. I hope this helps!!!

I dropped my mbox with a headphone adapter in the headphone input and it pushed it inside. I can now only hear out of the left headphone/speaker, is this fixable?


Hi Hermricks,
I actually did the same thing! I still havent fixed it, infact I havent tried too, but now that I have changed my signal path I need to use the headphone jack on the MBox.
Have you found a fix yet? There seems to be relatively no information online about this or where we could buy another headphone input and replace the broken one. (which is a relatively simple process to do at home).
If you get any further with finding out whats best to do, it would be great if you could email me and let me know. info@kristopherfisheraudio.com

It won't be accessible from the inside. You got to get it out the way it went in.
A screw extractor might work, but it might damge the jack. You could try a large wooden matchstick, jam the wood end (duh) into the opening. While slowly rotating the stick, try to pull it out. If any part of the center is protruding, use a small needle nose plier to extract it.

I cant hear windows


Your Windows System Sounds and sounds from other programs are output from the computers preinstalled soundcard. When you use a professional sound card i.e Mbox (ASIO) you can search google for an ASIO player or plugins for Real Player (or WinAmp or Windows Media Player etc) that allow you to use as the output device.

PROBLEM KEEPIN MBOX 2 CONNECTION TO MAC LAPTOP


I have the same problem. Usually it will work when I reboot the computer. The trick is once you get the mbox working with the phantom power on, is to not turn off the phantom power during your session; the duration in which you use the mbox at that given time before shutting it down. You can switch the phantom off and it won't shut off, but if you press it back on, it may and for me more than half of the time it does shut off. I have a new problem with my mbox. I can't hear play back, even though I can hear sound from either input. Any suggestions?
