Nokia Monitor Multigraph 447Za - Speaker/Microphone Volume control not working
I have a problem with my monitors volume controls for the built in speakers and the microphone volume. Neither seem to work turning the respective volume down using the soft rubber keys on the front of the monitor ?
Is there soem form of OSD or reset facility as the problem is really annoying !?
Please provide any useful advice

The electrical contact surfaces under the rubber buttons lose contact over time. I don't know if it's corrosion or some kind of build up. I fixed mine by disassembling the monitor, removing the button panel and cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser. It works great now. The monitor is a real bear to take apart though. There are four hidden spring tabs on the sides of the bezel that are impossible to see. I groped with a very thin screwdriver blade and finally got them to release, but not without chipping some of the plastic.

First--have the speakers worked before? If so, be sure the speaker wire is plugged into the green hole on the back of the computer and also plugged into the monitor. Is there a volume control on the monitor? If so, be sure it's turned up. Are you speakers muted? Check in the sounds icon in the control panel (there could also be a little picture of a speaker in the system tray. Many times people mute the speakers and forget they did it. Also in the sounds area of the control panel, be sure the volume is turned up.
Right click on the speaker icon in the system tray and choose Open Volume Control. In the Volume Control window, select Options, select Properties. In the properties window, place a checkmark by Microphone in the Show the following volume control properties section. Click OK. You should now see the control for the microphone. Uncheck the mute box and the microphone is now enabled.
Buy yourself some stand alone speakers, a base & two side speakers, they cheap these days, base speaker has buit in amplifier & plugs into mains, or get surround sound 5speakers & a base, again mains powered, loud enough to annoy neighbours on full. Built in monitor speakers are renowned feeble tinny sounds. Right click speaker icon, bottom right, on your desktop toolbar, open volume control, ensure volume sliders set to max.
make sure you have the mic cable plugged in the right port at the back of your computer. double click on the speaker on your desk tray, lower right corner by the time-date location, the Volume Control window will open. Check if you have the Microphone column, and the Mute check box is not mark. If you can't find the Microphone column in your Volume Control window, click Options > select Properties... check the box that says Microphone... then click OK. Now you should see the Microphone column... uncheck the Mute box. Test your mic now....
Hi shah. It is most likely that the speaker's transformer is burnt. If its under warranty then the showroom guys should fix it for you as its covered under warranty. Otherwise you will need to take it apart remove the old transformer and install a new one. I strongly advise "if you are not familiar with electricals then better take the assistance of a qualified engineer". Regards, Eagle338.
Start with the obvious! Are all connections to PC connected? Be sure that the proper wires are connected to the proper plug in.
Next you may have to adjust the volume control thru Windows. Look for the small speaker icon at the bottom right (usually) of the screen. Double click, and be sure that all of the volume controls are "up" and be sure that none of them are "muted"
There also may be a volume control on the monitor, speaker assembly.
Go to your speaker icon in your task bar on right hand side and right click then on volume control.
Go to file then select options/properties and then scroll down to the microphone on the show volume controls box and tick it.
The microphone volume slider should now show and make sure the mute is unticked.
