Question about Sony NW-A1000 MP3 Player

Volume button sheared off

This is a mechanical issue: the volume slider has come out of the device. I still have the slider but it won't stay back in position and it looks like the internal plastic may have sheared off. The device itself is still usable but the volume level canot be altered (by putting the slider back into its location it does not allow any valume adjustment). I don't know how or if the device can be taken apart to fix or whether this can be repaired?

Mine fell out a while ago, to put it back in, I've found that if you hold the player with the screen up, put the "V" end of the "VOL" next to the "-" end on the player, angle it up the way a bit and it should go back in and allow you to change the volume. Otherwise, take apart a paperclip or something and push the little black square in the hole, this should adjust it too. To me it seems to be a serious design fault - the "L" shaped pieces that hold it in the player are only on one side, allowing it to easily fall out if pushed from the other side.

Dragon touch tablet manual How do I turn off the volume of the table dragon touch 10".

If you do not have "+" and "-" buttons on the side of your tablet, you can change the volume via the screen.

The link below is for HP tablets, but can be used with any Android 4.1 tablet:

On the Home screen, touch the "All Apps" icon, and then touch the "Settings" icon. In the Device section, touch "Sound".
Touch "Volumes" to select custom volumes for media playback, notifications, and alarms.
Touch and drag the circle along the slider to adjust the volume for each type of sound. Dragging the slider left decreases the volume, and dragging the slider right increases the volume.

I am having problems adjusting volume

What type of laptop HP , ASUS , COMPAQ , ACER ?..........
Up the Volume on My HP Laptop
Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.
Locate and open the icon that deals with sound.
Depending on your version of Windows, it will say either "Sounds and Audio Devices" or "Adjust System Volume."
Adjust the volume under the "Speakers" icon.
To do this, click on the slider bar and move it up on the slider.
If you need to decrease the volume, simply move the slider bar down.
Click on "OK" when finished and close the "Control Panel" window.
Click on the speaker icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen for a faster volume adjustment. Simply move the slider bar up to increase the volume and move it back down to decrease the volume.

Volume on an Acer Laptop
Acer laptops are typically sold with pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers.
These same functions can also be used in tandem with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute all sound on the laptop.
If the computer should output an unusually low volume, fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with the computer mouse. Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner to open a rectangular window with a slide control.
Click and hold the left mouse button on the slide control to drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting.
Click the "Mixer" button below the slider control to open another window with volume controls for "Speakers" and "Applications," adjusting each slide control upward to increase the volume.
Be sure the speaker icon below each control is not accidentally muted.
Click once on each speaker icon to remove the red circle with a slash through it, which will restore audio.
Click the Microsoft flag or "Start" button in the lower-left corner if the shortcut speaker icon is missing from the taskbar.
Click "Control Panel" to select "Adjust Sounds" from the Hardware and Sounds category.

My headset was working fine but all of a sudden the volume will not stay at the level I turn it up to. It keeps rolling back down to barely any sound coming through. I try to use the button on headset but...

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. Your Logitech ClearChat Pro USB Headset's volume will not stay at the level you turn it up to, and as a result it keeps rolling back down to a lower sound quality. Your volume control button doesn't solve the problem neither. Well, when a problem occurs, you should first troubleshoot where it's coming from. We will use a method called "Process of elimination". Your headset's volume has two controls: one control is on the headset itself, and the other control is located in the sound settings of the device you have your headset plugged into. With this thought in mind, lets go up to the problem explanation above. You said that the volume control attached to the headset didn't make a difference, this means the you can eliminate the hypothesis that it's the volume control causing this. The problem is coming from the earphone portion of the headset. Either a mute setting has been activated, volume is turned down real low or your headset is not the default device to receive sound input. The first part of the investigation is done; now, to get further into the investigation, you will need to connect your headset to your computer. This is where troubleshooting and solving the problem meet. Step-by-Step, I am going to explain to you how to get audio presentations into your headset. This device works with two Windows Operating Systems (Vista and XP) and one Mac Operating System (OS X). If your computer's operating system is Windows, open your Control Panel. Under the Hardware & Sound link, click Manage Audio Devices (for Vista users), and the Sound & Audio Devices link (for XP users). If your coumputer's operating system is Mac OS X, open your System Preferences and click the Sound link. In Windows Vista, click the name of your device, then click Set Default. Click the Properties button and increase the volume slider or unmute the volume if needed. If applicable, click the Apply button, then click OK. If the Apply button is void, just click OK. Click the Recording tab and perform the same procedures as you did before, only difference is that this will make your headset microphone the default recording device. In Windows XP, click the Audio tab and set the headset as the Sound Playback and Recording device. Increase the volume or unmute it if needed. When finished, click the Voice tab and perform the same procedures as you did before. In Mac OS X, click the Input tab and select the headset as the input device. If you still can barely hear anything, increase the volume slider. When finished, click the Output tab and repeat the same steps as before; only thing, you will be making this the sound output device, meaning the sound of your voice will be outputed from the microphone. Increase the volume slider if needed. You should be able to receive sound in and out of your headphones now. If we succeded, through this experience we have: troubleshooted where the problem was coming from, found a way to solve it and fixed the problem! Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for problems, questions, concerns and requests. Visit our website again the next time you need assistance with something. Thank you and have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post.

***Codec issue If only some of the movies you're playing do not get sound it's likely you have a codec issue. codec downloads.
***Check volume settings Often no sound in the Microsoft Windows Media Player is corrected by adjusting the volume controls at the bottom of the window. Moving the slider from the left to the right will turn up the volume, if all the way to the left the volume is turned all the way down.

***Make sure not muted In addition to the volume slider, make sure the sound icon is not pressed in. This button is the mute button and will mute the sound.

***Sound Driver Drivers for your sound card download this
***Update / Reinstall the Windows Media Player
If you continue to experience issues, you may want to consider reinstalling and/or updating the Windows Media player on your computer. You can find the latest Windows Media player on your computer by clicking "here".

I have a HP Pavilion dv7-1232nr, the mute button and the wireless button on the top touch pad has quit working along with the volume slider. Any suggestions?

My mute button on my hp pavilion dv7-1262us stopped working after I updated my IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC through Microsoft update. The volume worked but the button stayed orange. I went to Device Manager- Sound,video and game controllers then IDT Audio CODEC. Click the Driver tab then click the Roll Back Driver button. This rolled the driver back to an older version but it fixed the problem. This is a Vista machine. Hope this helps.

No sound in windows XP to my laptop.


A couple of things to check. First I will start with the obvious, is the volume turned up? Next you need to check that the system sound is turned on. Click on Start>settings>control panel. Then double click on Sounds and Audio Devices. On the first screen make sure there is NO check in the box next to Mute and that the slider under device volume it at high. Click the advanced button and make sure nothing is muted here and all sliders are at the top. Back at the main screen click speaker volume and make sure those sliders are on high. Finally click on the Sounds tab and make sure the Sound Scheme is set to something other than no sounds.

Static while adjusting volume on Cambridge SoundWorks model twelve

If the volume is controlled with a mechanical volume control, usually a knob you turn or a slider you move, the problem is the volume control device (potentiameter) needs to be cleaned. That requires special cleaning chemicals most people do not have in their home. You would need to take it in to be serviced. This is a very inexpensive repair. Normally only costing about $50 to $75.

If it has electronic controlled volume like a button you press then it will still need to be serviced, but this is an unlikely case with static in volume when using the volume control.

If I can be more help let me know.

PCD120U volume issue

i think I know what your problem is ... if you hold down the menu/select button ( the button between the volume buttons) there will be a volume option it'll say P --- volume. I think that sets a default volume that the cd player will always reset to once the cd player is turned off then on again.
