USB powered speakers no power

The power light does not come on when these are plugged into a usb port and there is no sound either. When I plugged it into a usb port that was next to my cooling mat plug for my HP laptop, the mat stopped working. When I plugged them into my iMac, A dialog said they were pulling too much power and were automatically disabled. Can these be fixe?

SOURCE: Power surge on hub port error msg

The printer is the problem, obviously but, also try using a different USB cable to see if that doesn't help! When plugging up th cable, look for anything out of the ordinary! If changing the USB cable doesn't resolve the situation then it could be something shorted out in your printer and you need to take it to a service shop for repair! regards, babb

Craig wireless portable speaker cma3561 won't charge battery


Batteries are holding back the 21st century. I have the older model of this and my battery went bad very fast. Now I have to keep it plugged in and not just any usb port will work it has to be a usb power supply of at least 2 amps. I keep mine in a 2100mA usb source.

No Power to my speakers


If you are using USB 2.0 Powered speakers the internal mini-amplifier could be defective. Try using the speakers on a DVD player, or other audio device and see if you get the same results. Check to see that the USB port on your Computer is Active and responding correctly. Lastly if a Speaker set is USB 3.0 some may not be 2.0 backward compatible. The speakers are fully dependent on the power amplifier within the device.

My usb powered speakers light up but my system still shows no audio device present


Hi, well windows must install the correct Drivers before your device will work. You need to check this.
As the speakers are powered by the USB port and require 5 volts to operate. Some USB ports do not have a full 5 volts DC and have current limiting. Your speakers may require more power then your USB ports can give. or try them with a Powered Hub.
Have you tried them in another computer? to see if they actually work?
Try, another USB port, try a powered hub.
Ensure that they show up in device manager, if there right click, and select upgrade Drivers, allow it to look for and install the generic driver.
make sure it is set as your Default device.
You may have to disable your onboard sound from the BIOS, first too.

Speaker will not work. Cannot adjust the volume.


Make sure you can see the small LED light on the speakers. If I remember correctly, those speakers are USB powered, and need to be plugged into the USB port for power, and the green audio output port for sound signal. If they are plugged in, and you cannot turn them on, you have broken speakers. If you CAN turn them on, then ensure that the audio cable is plugged into the green audio output jack (sometimes it has a headphone icon by it) and make sure your computer has not muted the audio.

New pair of La Cie speakers. Dell pc. Not sure whee o plug in varous leads, but it now does the beefs etc on Windows. But when I put a CD in there is no sound at all


Hi there,

I think you were disconnected from our conversation. Anyway, the LaCie speaker is USB powered so you dont have to plug it into a power source because they will be powered by the USB port. You dont need to plug them into a speaker output on the computer as well. Just plug the USB cable of the speaker into your computer's usb port. As for the other speaker, there is a cord that used to connect the speakers together. Just plug it underneath the first speaker, that says "speaker" source. Then go to your Control panel >> Multimedia >> Audio and choose them as your Audio Output device.

Good luck!

Speakers are not making any sounds


ok let's try a simple test.unplug the the usb.i hope that your speaker has its own power supply.turn it on.try to touch the inputs of the speaker, you should hear humming sounds.if yes, then your speaker is ok.if the speaker is getting its power from the USB port, i suggest you should use its independent power.the USB does not have enough to supply your speakers. try also the output jacks for built-in audio of the pc, ok.

No soundfrom speakers-{usb]


1.)Try connecting your speakers to another machine ? Then you can distinguish if the speaks or the cable is faulty or your sound software on your machine.

2.)install the l8est drivers for your sound card or audio device

3.)try the front usb, sides or other usb ports

4.) If your speakers also have "Jack" connectors, either try plugging into another audio port at the back of your machine or try the front audio ports

5.) Are the speakers powered on ? Is the volume on the speakers muted OR is the sound in your system on your machine muted or turned off or turned quiet ???

Durabrand 2.0 CH USB Speaker System


Hi, Based on your post/description, the Durabrand 2.0 CH USB Speaker System is a basic external speaker that plugs into your PC's speaker/headset output (green jack). It is supposed to get its power from the +5VDC supplied by the USB port. Some USB port have current limiting therefore it can be anywhere from 10 - 500 mA. The power requirement of your external Durabrand speaker maybe beyond what the PC's USB ports can supply. It does not need to be recognized by the OS since it only connects to the USB to get power but there is no data interaction. Perhaps what you can do is get an external +5VDC power supply whose output is in USB type connector. The current rating would depend on the requirement of your speaker. Offhand, if the speakers are not that big, probably a 1 Amp would do. This is of course assuming that the Durabrand speaker system is fully functional. If with an external power supply it is still a no go and you have verified that sound do come out of your green jack (with the use of an ordinary headset), then the Durabrand is defective. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
