Question about Audio Players & Recorders
First,i never seen uc 280 speakers & dont know if it is a wood or a plastic speaker enclousure. 1. try looking 4 screws again, you might have missed them 2. if you sure there are no screws,you may have a plastic speaker box that was put together with crazy glue. in that case you will have to look for seams to crack or pry with two large flat bladed screwdriver or two very stiff puddy knifes. if you cant find a seam good enough to get a screwdriver into to start the pry job, you will have to take a stiff thin bladed knife that you dont mind ruining the looks of and heat the blade
red with a propsine tourch $12.00athome depot or a gas stove
burner will do & saves you $12.00. even an electric stove burner might work if you put the knife blade on the burner & a heavy black cast iron fry pan in the top of the knife blade.
anyway,one you get the knife blade or flat screwdriver tip hot,you can ment a slot through the plastic enough to get a pry started.
by now you realize that we are going to make somewhat of a mess of your speaker box, but if it is crazy glued together,this is all that can be done about getting it apart.right now,you dont have a working speaker. you may end up with a working speaker that looks like it survived world war 3 in bad shape, but best I can do,so sorry.if you can pry it appart enough to get inside and reconnect the wire, the test to make sure speaker does work,we ate ready to glue it back together. A hot melt glue gun from you local dollar tree or dollar store will do the trick or a tube of crazy glue.alternately,you can use the engineering llc solution
which is ,if its susposed to move and dont, use wd40 but if its not susposed to move but does,use duct tape.
so you can use a good grade of duct tape to hold your speaker box together with,if need be.
in the past,we have used hot melt glue gun to reattach the plastic front of a vw passat so it would be flush with the front fenders when a sheet metal screw didnt work good. used the hot melt to keep the sheet metal screw from coming out and to hold the edge of the plastic in flush to the fender edge. god help who ever takes that apart again. hope he is a good problem solver because that vw solution was from mickey mouse enginenering, llc

do windows updates and choose to download the driver for your soundcard. if they're not on the windows update, then try to go to the manufacturer's website to download the soundcard driver.

Try turning the volume on the computer volume control up and turn the volume control on the speakers down, or try the other way, turn the volume control on your speakers up, and the volume control on the computer down. I've had this problem before and this was the way I found a resolution.

SOURCE: Broken right speaker
It is very difficult to rewire the right speaker( the one with the controls). The black cable contains an orange and black pair which drive the "big" speaker in the base. The white wire has the wires for the controls. That white wire is .090 in in dia. Peel back the white pvc insulation and you will find a layer of aluminum foil which is intended to shield the control wires.Then there is another layer of insulation. Peel that insulation back and you find SIX color coded lacquer insulated wires. Each wire is .010 in in dia. If you attempt to solder the severed wires together you will doubtlessly melt the lacquer and short the cable out. Twisting the wires together without removing the lacquer won't work. The satellite speakers were intended to be non-repairable, thats why the case is glued together.
The best bet is throw the right speaker in the trash and try to purchase a replacement from Altec or find a replacement in a flea market etc.
