No Source/imput control on DELL M1530

I do a lot of audio work (I'm on the air in Haines, AK.) My new DELL has no input level control; not on the desktop, or in the software I've been using (Goldwave, Audition, etc..) The genius DELL customer service have no clue. Do you?

If really look in the problem you are also missing the "Stereo Mix" option in input selection. So we can not record "what we hear"

I would love to see a solution to this....

Dell XPS M1530 won't recognize external monitor

The XPS1530 uses Vista so go to the control panel and choose the port that you have the external monitor connected to. I use an HDMI cable and need to choose both the audio and video separately in the control panel.

I have a old tv with rca audio imputs and I wanted to run iit thriugh my denon.Im runing my ipod and serius radio through it and I thought I would like to hear the tv also . So I disconnecteed my iod...


TV audio INputs won't feed the receiver. TV audio OUTputs would. Maybe THAT is what you meant.

If your TV gets ITS programming from anywhere but its own antenna, why don't you just get the audio from that device into the receiver? Patching TV-originated audio is like feeding a transistor radio to the receiver. Old TV audio circuitry is, um, awful.

Assuming you still want to have the TV be an audio source, run the RCA outputs to any available input on the receiver EXCEPT PHONO. If your TV has any menus for ausio control make sure they are set to put out a FIXED volume level so when you lower the TV speakers you don't affect the audio on the RCA jacks.

Ac/dc power plug replacement for a dell XPS m1530 laptop

It would be stated as DC Power Jack.

For the Dell XPS M1530 it has a circuit board that is removed.

The circuit board also has the I/O USB ports on it.

DC Power Jack I/O USB Circuit Board example,

A lot more convenient for replacing the DC Power Jack.

Examples of a Dell XPS M1530 DC Power Jack,

Round and Octagon.

Dell XPS M1530 Service Manual. (From Dell Support)

1) Remove ALL electrical sources. AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) Use an ESD wrist strap, and connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.
(Cost averages from $3 to $12. I connect to the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case)

3) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove. Label each compartment for the area the screw/s came out of.
(You can use a clean egg carton in a pinch. Label each each holder)

There may be as many as 60 screws, and 12 different types of screws.
DO NOT mix them up.

4) Make notes and drawings as you disassemble. Use a video cam if available. (Use good lighting)
Nice to have a record to come back to if you are interrupted.

5) I suggest using Solder Wick, (Desoldering Braid), for desoldering.

A lot better IMHO than using a Desoldering Tool.
(Solder S u c k e r tool)

50 Watt of less soldering iron, No.2 chisel tip.
.055 Rosin core solder
Rosin paste flux
Solder Iron stand with a damp sponge, or a damp sponge nearby.

Cannot get volume to turn on.

First try using MP3 player or any audio source to feed the monitor audio input jack (green jack) to see if you get the sound OK. Just need to narrow down the problem. The DC adapter for the sound bar is OK?

Sound disturbance from dell laptop

It sounds like you blew out the laptop speakers. The cones inside of them may have ruptured and they will not ever sound good. However, the connecton to the speakers may be touching another componet inside the laptop and causing interferance. Also, try unplugging the laptop a listening to sound. If it is better you have a ground issue with your power source.

Yamaha rx v1800 receiever will only play tuner on zone 2 speakers

Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.
