Why Behringer C1U not recognized ?
Did you install the mic's drivers before plugging the mic in? Have you tried it on 32bit operating systems other than Win 7? I don't think it will be an audio driver problem ie: asio4all. But because the OS doesn't recognise the driver automatically it might indicate where the problem lies. I am not familiar with this particular mic ( I use AKG cs1000s with Zoom R16 audio interface ) but I know there can be issues with some 64 bit systems and certain audio hardware. Nothing in the Behringer forums?

How to Operate a Behringer C-1U
The Behringer C-1U is a USB condenser mic for recording individual instruments. A condenser microphone is a mic that uses vibrations produced by sound to change the distance of internal plates that produce signal. Condenser mics typically require an extra change, known as phantom power, to operate. Since the C-1U is USB powered, phantom power is not needed. The Behringer C-1U has a frequency response that favors sounds around the 10KHz range. This heightens the clarity of recorded signals due to the microphone's treble boost.
Things You'll Need:
* Computer with USB 2.0 port
* USB cable
* Recording software
Turn on the computer. When the operating system loads, connect the microphone.
Install any necessary drivers for the C-1U. This will happen automatically when the device is connected.
Select the Behringer C-1U as an input source in any desired audio software. In Windows, click the "Volume" icon in the task bar to open the mixer. Select the C-1U as the primary input. On Macs, use the "Audio/MIDI Setup" in the "System Preferences" menu to select the C-1U as the primary input
Note: make sure you activate the phantom power on the mic. That's the only way to power up the microphone.
Have a nice day.

I have a Behringer pmp1280s. It was working fine 12 months ago. I got it out again today. Everything lights up fuses are fine. level lights work. No sound out of speaker outputs
I doubt that there is a problem with the unit. Usually people have problems with their cables or the speakon plugs themselves.
Unscrew the connector that is used on both ends and double-check their connections. Sometimes the screws that hold the heavy gauge wire in place, come loose. Also make sure that they are in the right places. Sometimes you have 4 connections. Make sure they are in +1 and -1 connections. Every once in a while you'll find a quirk unit that requires you to use +2 and -2 instead. Look at the back of the amp. It should tell you which numbers it uses. Make sure you check the same thing on the speaker end also. If you have a meter or continuity checker, use it to make sure it's wired right.
This is a professional piece of equipment. They don't go bad easily. Make sure you tighten those connections real good and that you pay close attention to the engraved numbers on the speakon connectors. (That is if they are quality connectors. The cheap ones may NOT tell you the numbering or the phase, ((+ or -)). Hint: The negative one is always closest to the outside of the plug. You'll have to study it to understand that. The screw terminals on the inside have 'walls' on both sides of it. Those are the + connections.
Also, check the switches on the front. You may have one of the switches in the wrong position or setting. Also if you're using phantom powered mics, you have to turn the phantom power on or else they will not work. Hope this helps.
