    I have the 32 inch a650 and I have the same annoying problem, the sound the TV makes on startup or powerdown wakes up the entire house!

    IS there a way to turn this off or adjust the volume?

    I found it in my operator's manual...  In the Menu under Setup then under "External Settings" there is something called "Melody Function" which can be set to Off, Low, Medium, or High.

How do i turn off the initial sound of a recco tv?

Here is a link to the manual.
I looked but there is nothing mentioning a start up tone. If you have your TV connected to your computer, I would suggest that is where the sound is coming from, especially if turning the vol to zero didn't work.

On and off switch not working

Hello Michael,

The most common problem with the Samsung 940MW units that don't turn on is a failure of the power supply board. There are parts called capacitors that fail which in turn causes the power supply to not startup correctly so the monitor never powers up. Here is a link to a repair guide that should get you back watching tv and using the monitor in no time.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Monior doen't power up, I suspect the powe supply is faulty. The on / off switch on the front of the monitor seems to pulse (the light) but failes to startup.

perform a power supply inspections. First, trance the cables that connect to the Tv and power curcuit outlet to firmly attach dittached power AC cords. Also, check on the power outlets power button status to switch on when detected as off. Once achieved, the Television is ready to be powered on to display media. Important notes includes awarenes that recent TVs have two power on functions. The TV may require manually powering on the press buttons. Also, the second power features are situated on the Tvs remote control. press firm ly the remote control power button to display the initial television screen logos.

I have sound on my philips tv but no video


There are some circumstances for which this type of problem occurs to your TV....

You'll need to do this in the dark or low light conditions! Make sure TV is off. Now turn on the TV. If the TV "glows" when you turn it on, the problem is the TCON board. There is also a slight chance that it's the main input board...but this is less likely. However if the TV does not "glow" when you turn it on, the problem is the back light inverter boards.

Also hold a flash light to the screen after it goes off and see if you can see a faint picture. Sounds like your backlight might be cutting off. Repair can be expensive but some of the newer units don

Compaq wf 1907 monitor speakers--no sound

No sound from monitor speakers
If the built-in speakers on the monitor do not produce sound, perform each step that follows, testing for sound after each step, until you can hear sound:
  1. Close the software program you are using that is experiencing the sound problems. Test for audio using another software program.
    If the volume is adequate using another software program, the issue is with the computer, not the monitor. If the volume is still low, continue with this procedure.
  2. Check the cable connection. If the monitor-to-computer connection is a VGA cable (usually blue on both ends), an additional audio cable is needed between the monitor and the computer. Check that the audio cable is connected properly.
  3. Try to adjust the volume higher using the monitor front-panel volume button.
  4. Using the buttons on the monitor, navigate through the onscreen display (OSD) menu to find audio or speaker settings and enable the speakers.
  5. Click Start c01292216.gif , Control Panel , and then click Sounds and Audio Devices .
  6. From the Volume tab, check the Device volume, and make sure it is not muted.
  7. From the Audio tab, in the Sound playback field, click the Volume button. Make sure the audio device is not muted and the volume outputs are at adequate levels.
  8. If the monitor-to-computer connection is an HDMI cable, an additional audio cable might be needed, depending on the setup and configuration of the system. To find out whether an additional audio cable is needed, go to
HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Using HDMI Audio with a Desktop Computer

This document pertains to HP or Compaq PCs with an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) connector.
HDMI sends both audio and video through the same connection. If you want to hear audio from an HDMI connection, HDMI audio must be set through Windows . For example, if a computer is connected via HDMI to a monitor or TV and the proper HDMI audio settings are made, both audio and video will be sent to the display device.
Use the following steps to activate HDMI audio on your computer:

    NOTE: If you are setting up your computer for the first time, it may be easier to use a DVI connection or DVI-to-VGA adapter connection for the initial setup. Then, if you want to use an HDMI connection to connect a TV or monitor, activate sound for the HDMI connector using the steps that follow before connecting the HDMI cable to the TV or monitor.

    NOTE: After recovering the computer using the Recovery Manager, repeat this procedure to activate sound for the HDMI connector.

Step 1: Enabling HDMI sound in the BIOS
To hear audio through the HDMI connector to a monitor or display, enable the Onboard Audio setting in the computer BIOS settings by completing the following steps.

    NOTE: If you choose the default BIOS Setup options or upgrade the BIOS, you must repeat this procedure to enable audio for the HDMI connector.

  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. To enter the BIOS, turn on the computer and press the F10 key repeatedly until a BIOS Setup screen opens.
    A BIOS Setup screen opens.
  3. Press the right arrow key on the keyboard to select the Advanced tab.
  4. Press the down arrow key to select Onboard Audio , and then press the Enter key.

Input not supported

You may have a video resolution selected on your computer that the screen doesn't support.

The reason you see the the initial startup message is because that is loaded from the bios, prior to the settings for the graphic card output being loaded.

Try booting the computer in safe mode and adjusting the display resolution.
