Sound Problem on ASUS A636N

This is strange. There is no sound on my Asus A636N. Whenever I go to the volume control on the Windows mobile 5.0 desktop and turn it up so that I can hear sound, nothing happens. When I look again at the volume control, its gone right back down to zero. Its like there's something in the software thats switching it down for some reason.
NOt sure how long its been like this to be honest. Maybe a month or so since I last used it!
Any ideas?

The problem is related to TomTom software. There are two methods to solve this problem.
(1) You can choose to install TomTom 6.1 which has solved the sound problem if TomTom V6.1 is available for end user.
(2) Find “BtCoreIf.dll”in Windows directory and rename it to "BtCoreIf.old”. Then, reset the device to solve the sound problem.

well.. ive had this problem on wm5 with tt6.
like everyone my btcoreif.dll and btsdkce30.dll were replaced by tomtom.
i tried as every advice told me to to either delete them or replace em with originals files from first setup
since i could not copy move rename or delete them since they always in use.
this on a asus 636 i was stuck.
i did manage to remove the dll files from tomtom cab install files but my biggest problem was i didt want to lose my almost perfect pda installation with tons of good working software.
here my solution i came up with.
backup ur pda with everyting on it even no sound working with sprite backup[even trial will do].
hard reset it so u have clean system again.
next open the selfextracting sprite backup file.
on restore above u see all selected stuff u can restore..
expand System Data
expand File System
now u see everything on your pda
goto windows adn from the files find
btcoreif.dll and btsdkce30.dll
unselect these files.
then restore this on your pda
u will have a perfect backup restored but still have the right dlls from your rom on it.. u will have sound again.

delete this backup file and make a new one now .. it will be a perfect backup

hope this solution will help those who cant delete move or rename thse files on their pda and dont want to start installing everything from scratch

I have an asus a636n doesn't work won't turn on when i connect it to my computer I see is charging ( red led) bud nothing more..and my computer doesn't see my asus please help me

It is most likely a similar issue to what they were experiencing with the a632's not waking up correctly from sleep. Removing the battery will not fix this issue,
I would use a soft reset first to see if this corrects the issue and if not I would perform a hard reset. as detailed in the instructions below.

No sound on my asus 639

try to use a speaker with a power source, if you use a speaker that does not have its own power source then you won't be able to hear anything louder than a whisper from your speakers

Support for Asus A636

There is a problem with the battery cover switch. You should use a contact cleaning liquid spray or, if you are good in hardware, you can open up the PDA and solder a small capacitor in parallel with the switch. I did that yesterday, then I started iGO 2006 Plus and pressed several buttons. Everything was great, but I wasn't satisfied yet. I switched the hold button and started to hit the PDA dropped it on the table etc. When I had switched the button to unhold, surprise... the software was running. Problem solved! I have called a friend of mine and already modified his unit too.
Cheers and good luck!
