All usb devices require power, by pulling it out first, sounds to me you've short-circuited it. Buy another.

Why no sound?


Check whether the audio is muted by accidental press at remote control button. Enter its sound menu, and check it. If muted, as you know there will be no audio output. If not muted, check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Hi i have a problem with samson c01, it doesnt work because i use a pc and a usb cable. no power , what can i do?


Some users have reported problems with this microphone not working properly with Windows Vista operating system but it is fine with XP and Windows 7. Some MAC & Linux users have also encountered installation problems.
All condenser microphones require a power source to make them work. In the case of USB mics they take their operating power from the computers USB port. If you have a lot of other USB devices connected then there may not be enough power available to run them all at the same time. Disconnect any devices that you do not need.
First step would be to make sure that you connect to a main USB port (not a separate hub). If you are using a desktop or tower computer use the USB ports on the rear of the computer, which are mounted directly on the motherboard. Front panel USB ports are normally on a hub and may therefore prove unreliable with some devices..
Next try to diagnose the problem by process of systematic elimination
  1. Test your sound-card - does it work okay with other sound sources such as a microphone plugged into the normal microphone input (red socket) on the sound-card or on your front panel.
  2. Do you have another USB sound source that you can plug in to make sure that your computer will accept sound from that route?
  3. Now check the microphone for faults. Is the LED on the microphone coming on to indicate it is getting power?
  4. If no the microphone itself, or the cable, may be faulty. Try plugging it in to a different computer, games console, stereo or audio device with a USB input to see if it will work there (note not all audio devices will have sufficient power on the USB socket so this test may not be conclusive)
  5. Is the computer operating system actually recognising the presence of the microphone in the first place?
  6. Does a little balloon pop up to say a device has been plugged in - and does it correctly identify what that device is by telling you it's name?
  7. If the system recognises the device but doesn't correctly identify then you may need to install a driver for the microphone.
  8. From the windows start menu go to CONTROL PANEL.
  9. Click on SYSTEM, then HARDWARE, followed by DEVICE MANAGER
  10. Scroll down to SOUND VIDEO & GAME CONTROLLERS. Does the microphone appear here? If yes does it have a little yellow asterisk next to it? If so it is a driver issue.
  11. Sometimes a USB driver issue can be resolved by uninstalling the USB controllers and reinstalling them. Scroll down the list of devices in DEVICE MANAGER until you get to UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS. Systematically uninstall every device listed here. To do this RIGHT CLICK on each device and then click UNINSTALL. Then on the TOOL BAR click CHECK FOR SYSTEM CHANGES. this will reinstall all USB devices and controllers.
  12. If that does not solve the USB problem go to your computer manufacturers website and download the latest USB drivers for your machine.
  13. Assuming you have overcome the USB issue (or if this was not the problem anyway) you now need to check that the microphone is selected as your default audio device.
  14. To do this go back to CONTROL PANEL, followed by SOUND & AUDIO DEVICES
  15. Click on AUDIO and, under the SOUND RECORDING tab select your microphone from the drop down list.
  16. Then click the VOLUME button which will open a window called RECORDING CONTROL
  17. Make sure there is a tick (check mark) against microphone and that the slider is up at the top of the scale.
  18. If everything is okay up to this point the problem may well lie in the settings for the audio / recording program that you are using. Most programs have some sort of wizard for testing audio settings, which you will need to work through.

Speaker wires are pluged in on my dell inspiron 530 but not working help


    • 1 Make sure that your computer and speakers are plugged in, have power and are turned on. If the speakers are plugged in but don't appear to have any power, plug them into a different outlet. Some speakers are self powered and use a USB cable to supply power. Make sure that the USB cable of your speakers is connected securely to the USB port of your computer.
    • 2 Retest the sound. If you still don't have any sound, make sure the cable connecting the speakers to the computer (known as a 1/8-inch TRS cable) is plugged into the green audio output jack on the PC.
    • 3 If you're using self-powered USB speakers, remove the USB cable and plug it into a different USB port. If you're using outlet-powered speakers and have a working set handy, replace the suspected non-working speakers with the working pair to test.
    • 4 Navigate to the Microsoft Fix It troubleshooter (windows.Microsoft.com/en-US/windows/help/no-sound-in-windows) to automatically detect and fix sound playback or hardware problems. If that doesn't work, proceed with the next step.
    • 5 If you have an add-on sound card and none of the hardware or software fixes helps, you may have to replace the sound card. If you use on-board sound, it will probably pay to purchase an inexpensive sound card rather than a new motherboard. Check the system BIOS to determine whether you have inadvertently disabled your on-board sound.
    • 6 Navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel" and "Sounds and Audio Devices." Then click the "Volume" tab. If everything is grayed out, proceed to Step 7. If the "Mute" box is checked, uncheck it. In "Device Volume," make sure that your volume level is set to a comfortable volume level for your speakers.
    • 7 Click the "Sounds" tab. Under "Sound Scheme," determine whether "No Sounds" is selected. If it is, click "Sound Schemes." A drop-down list will appear. Select "Windows Default" as the scheme. To test your sound now, click on a sound listed below the "Program Events" window. The sounds will be indicated by a small "Speaker" icon located next to them. Left-click the sound once, then click the "Play" button. If you still don't hear sound, proceed with the next step.
    • 8 Click the "Audio" tab. Under the "Sound Playback" option, make sure your sound card is selected as the default playback device. Usually, only one device appears here, unless you have multiple playback devices installed.
    • 9 If everything is grayed out, you either do not have a playback device installed or your drivers are corrupted and need to be replaced. Drivers help hardware and software function together. Fix this by reinstalling the appropriate drivers. Do this by navigating to the "Start" menu and right-clicking "Computer." Then select "Properties" from the drop-down menu. Click the "Hardware" tab and then click the "Device Manager" button. The Device Manager will open.
    • 10 Look for either a red X or a yellow question mark listed under "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers." If a red X appears, right-click the device with the X and select "Enable" from the pop-up menu. Test your sound at this point. If a yellow question mark appears, right-click the device, click "Properties" from the pop-up menu, and then click the "Driver" tab on the window that appears. Next, click the "Roll Back Driver" button to roll back to the previous drivers that were functioning correctly. Restart your computer when prompted.
    • 11 As a last resort, you can uninstall and reinstall the device. To do this, right-click the device and select "Uninstall" from the pop-up menu. Restart your computer. Windows will automatically detect and install your audio device upon boot-up. If you still don't hear any sound from your computer speakers, contact a qualified computer technician.

My speakers are not working


Step 1
If no sound is coming from the computer, start troubleshooting your problem. Make sure both your computer and speakers are plugged in, have power, and are turned on. If the speakers are plugged in but do not appear to have any power, plug them into a different outlet. If you are using a power strip and this is case, replace the power strip. Some speakers are self powered and use a USB cable to supply power. Make sure that the USB cable of your speakers is connected securely to the USB port of your computer.

Step 2
Once you have verified that you have power to your speakers, test the sound again. If you still do not have any sound, make sure the cable connecting the speakers to the computer (known as a 1/8" TRS cable) is plugged into the green audio output jack on the PC.

Step 3
Before we move to software, let's try two more hardware fixes. If you are using self-powered USB speakers, remove the USB cable and plug it into a different USB port. If you are using outlet powered speakers and have a working set handy, replace the non-working speakers with the working pair to test. If you still have nothing, let's move on to software. But one tip first: (for geeks and beginners)

Step 4
As it is with any troubleshooting process, the issue can sometimes come down to the hardware itself. If you have an add-on sound card and none of the hardware or software fixes helps, you may have to replace the sound card. If you use on-board sound, it will probably pay to purchase an inexpensive sound card rather than a new motherboard. If you've been messing around in the BIOS, you may have disabled your on-board sound if that's what you're using. If you don't know what BIOS means, you probably haven't been there and can move on.

Step 5
Go to your desktop. Click Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume tab. If everything is grayed out, go to step 8. If the "Mute" box is checked, un-check it. In "Device Volume" make sure that your volume level is set to a comfortable volume level for your speakers.

Step 6
Click the "Sounds" tab. Under "Sound Scheme" check to see if "No Sounds" is selected. If it is, click "Sound Schemes" and a drop down list will appear. Select "Windows Default" as the scheme. To test your sound now, click on a sound listed below the "Program Events" window. These will be indicated by a small speaker icon located next to them. Simply left click the sound once, then click the play button. If you hear sound, congratulations. If not, move on.

Step 7
Click the "Audio" tab. Under the "Sound Playback" option, make sure your sound card is selected as the default playback device. Usually, only one device appears here, unless you have multiple playback devices installed.

Step 8
If everything is grayed out, you either do not have a playback device installed or your drivers are corrupted and need to be replaced. Drivers help hardware and software function together. Try this fix for reinstalling drivers. Click Start > Right-click "My Computer" > select "Properties" from the drop-down menu > Click the "Hardware" tab and then click the "Device Manager" button. Device Manager will open.

Step 9
Look for either a red X or a yellow question mark listed under "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers" If you have a red X, right click the device with the x and select "Enable" from the pop-up menu. Test your sound at this point. If you have a yellow question mark, right click the device, click "Properties" from the pop-up menu, and then click the "Driver" tab on the window that appears. Now, click the button "Roll Back Driver" to go back to the previous drivers that were functioning correctly. Restart your computer at the prompt.

Step 10
As a last resort, you can uninstall and reinstall the device. Right click the device and select "Uninstall" from the pop-up menu. Restart your computer. Windows will automatically detect and install your audio device upon boot-up. If after doing all of the steps, listed here and you still cannot hear any sound from your computer speakers, contact a qualified computer technician.

Hello i have a tsoshiba tecra laptop and i wanted to find out if i have sound or not and were is it located to see if i need a sound card or not


Hello
Dear Friend...
You can check your Device Manager under My Computer / Right Click / Properties / Hardware Tab / Device Mgr

You need to check the Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices / Audio Tab / Sound Playback option.....

if it's greyed out then u dont have a Sound card or the card is corrupt....
if no internal sound card is present or if it's not working then u have this alternative....buy a " USB Sound Adaptor" and connect it to the USB port and connect the speaker sound jack to the sound port in this adaptor....u will get back the sound....also keep in mind that u " may " have to disable onboard sound in BIOS, u may also have to make changes in the Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices / Audio Tab / Sound Playback option... Click the drop down button and select the "USB Audio Devices/Headset"

You can get this in Ebay for $1 to $4 or google it to locate a place near u......

This is the one i am refering to(I bought it in Ebay for 1$)....u can buy something similar also....there are many available, all of them are made in China, as it's USB enabled plug and play, connect it to your PCs USB port....you will not need any software or driver to install it....Winodws will auto install it and show it under the Device Manager / Sound Audio and Games Ctrlr as told above and will also show it under Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices

If you find this solution useful please leave a feedback and rating to this solution.

Regards....
All the best, my dear friend..9dbeb35.jpg

LOT OF HISS I HEAR . HOW TO REDUCE IT ......


Since the edirol is USB powered try using it without any other USB devices connected. Maybe some USB disk or flash takes much power from the USB and the edirol works with less power. If in that case works fine, plug in the other USB devices on by one to find where is the problem. Always check the line input of the edirol, cause mic input makes too mauch amplification and the noise level is critical.

I am no tgetting sound from external speakers


Power down your machine
Unplug everything from it
Open it up
Remove your sound card and put it back in
Reverse the step and boot your machine
If it still doesn't work then you'll need to replace your sound card. You can find really good ones on Amazon for $25 or so.Remember to always turn off your speakers before you plug them into your computer. Since they are probably powered via AC adapter that surge of power could have shorted out your card. Good luck!!

Appears to be installed properly but doesn't record


When you first connect the turntable, Windows XP (and Mac OSX) will often select the "USB Audio Codec" as the audio input and output for your entire system. Since your turntable does not have speakers, audio will not be heard from your programs until you tell Windows not to use the turntable as an output device. Here's how to change these settings so that your internal sound card will always be used for playback whether or not your ION TTUSB is connected via USB:
    For Windows:
  1. On the bottom left of your screen, select the "Start" menu.
  2. Select "Settings" then "Control Panel".
  3. In the window that opens, select the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. (If you don't see a choice called "Sounds and Audio Devices," choose the "Switch to Classic View" option in the panel on the left of the window, and the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon should become available in the list on the left.
  4. Select the "Audio" Tab at the top of the "Sounds and Audio Devices" control panel window.
  5. Under "Sound Playback," choose your internal sound card as the default device. This varies by computer but should not be set to "USB Audio Codec" or "Microsoft Sound Mapper".
  6. Under "Sound Recording," select "USB Audio Codec" for your default device.
  7. Check the box titled "Use only default devices".
  8. Click "Apply"...then "OK".


    For Mac:
  1. Open your Hard Disk.
  2. Open your "Applications" folder.
  3. In the "Applications" folder, open the "Utilities" folder.
  4. In the "Utilities" folder, open the "Audio MIDI Setup".
  5. In the "Audio MIDI Setup" under Audio Devices, set:

    • "Default Input" to "USB Audio Codec"
    • "Default Output" to "Built In Audio"
    • "System Output" to "Built in Audio"

Now, all programs, including Audacity, will only use your internal sound card for audio output.
