How do I open a UC-280 2.0CH USB Powered speaker system to reconnect the broken cable.

Once you open the speaker it will destroy the acoustic properties and make the speaker useless. The speakers are assembled with takp and glue and have to be pried apart.

Havin a problems

Speakers themselves don't have drivers. The sound drivers are part of the sound card or (on board sound )of your computer system.. Got o the manufactures website and download the sound driver for you mother obard or find out which sound car you have through (my computer hardware devices) and go to the sound card manufactures web site to download their driver.

try going to control panel, the system icon, hardware tab, divice manager, check to see if your sound card does not have a yellow ! icon next to it, if it does try right click, go to properties, and reinstalling it, it does help if the computer is hooked to the internet so it can find it automaticly over the internet.

Check the volume on the systems itself. The difference of hardware won't matter has long as you have the correct driver for each hardware. Just check the volume & still doesn't work GET BAC @ME.

Setup problem

To troubleshoot a speaker system where sound is not issuing from all speakers, please do the following:
  1. Verify that all cables are plugged in correctly. Make sure the rear and/or center/sub audio cable is plugged in to the correct port. On most surround sound cards, the rear audio port is black, the front audio port is green, and the center/sub audio port is orange. If you do not have a surround sound card, make sure you obtain the proper adapter (discussed in the next paragraph) or use surround sound emulation if your speaker system offers it. If you are not sure if you have a surround sound card, please check with the manufacturer of your sound card for details.
  2. Make sure your sound card supports the same amount of channels as your speaker system contains. For 4.1 systems, it should have a front and rear speaker jack on the card. For 5.1 systems, the card should have a front, rear, and center/sub, output. The card should be properly installed and configured. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for details. If you do not have a surround sound capable sound card, you can use the source selector switch or the M3D button on the controller unit (if available). You can also use an adapter to split the signal for the front and rear speakers. This type of adapter is a 3.5mm male to 2-3.5mm female jacks. You can purchase this adapter at your local electronic store. Please refer to your manual if you do not know if your speaker system can emulate surround sound.
  3. Try connecting the speakers to a portable sound device such as a walkman or portable CD player. Plug the speakers into the headphone jack, but make sure the volume is lowered so the speakers are not over powered. You can do this for both the front, rear, center/sub speakers to verify that they work. If the speaker system works on the walkman, then you are experiencing a configuration issue with your sound card. Please contact your sound card manufacturer.
  4. Check the system Volume Control located in the System tray. Make sure that the volumes are at a reasonable level and are not checked for Muting.

Speakers 2.0 durabrand not registering

If both sets work on one computer, but none of them work on the problem machine, then it's not the speakers that are at fault, but rather the computer you're plugging them into.

As you are getting a "No Audio Devices" message, and the speakers get their signal from your systems soundcard, the soundcard drivers may not be installed, or working properly (the USB plug, it seems, only serves to power the speakers, nothing else).

Open up Device Manager, and look for your soundcard, and/or any devices marked with a Question (?) or Exclamation (!) Mark. Install/reinstall the drivers for any of these that you see. If you don't see anything marked as such, locate your soundcard under the "Sound and Audio devices" header, and reinstall it.

(NOTE: You can get to device manager in Windows XP, by going to Start-> Run -> type in "Control", and press ENTER. From the window that pops up, make sure you're using Classic View, then go to System -> Hardware -> Device Manager.)

If you DON'T, however, see either unknown devices or your soundcard listed in Sounds and Audio Devices, reseat your soundcard in it's PCI slot or a different slot in your machine, boot up your computer, and see if it's recognized. if it isn't, or if you're using an onboard sound solution, you may have to replace your soundcard, as it's defective.

Hope this helps :~)
