I'm sorta stuck here and I really don't know what to do. Well this is sorta whats happening, I have a set of Bose Companion 5 Speakers hooked up to my laptop through a USB port and they were working beautifully since I had purchased them which has been almost 5 months. However, just recently, instead of the normal green (active/on) light, and the amber (muted) light, it has always been on red (standby) or no light at all was displayed on the control pod.
The even stranger thing is that when no light is present, and I am trying to play sound through my speakers, there will be occasional sound, as it will play for 2-5 seconds, then go mute for an extended period, and so on. I have a feeling it is something to do with the speakers and not with the laptop because it does not work when plugged into different USB ports and also I have tried to disconnect and reconnect everything to no avail.
I think the biggest note to mention is that a couple of days ago the area around my control pod had water spilled on it, which I have no idea if it affected it or not (seems like it did). But even after that, for a day the speakers continued to work, and until recently did they behave they are right now...
Alright well thats the whole thing the best way I can sum it up. Sorry its so long but Thanks again for helping me out. I'm really at a loss here...and I don't wanna have to get new speakers because these were pretty pricey...
but yea thanks again
