Lack of volume

I can't get the sound to be audible enough when watching a video. It seems to be attenuated. Is there a way to increase the volume level besides going to the volume control?

    Hi, I'm well aware of the process that you mentioned and I've exhausted that aspect of it. I spoke with someone in reference to my situation and he said that I need to purchase external speakers in order to enhance the volume, the speaker output is minimum, but it works better with CDs.or headphones. Do you find that to be the same situation with your computer?

    Hi there!
    That makes a lot of sense. The separate power source seem to be the way to go. I'll check that out! I really like my computer, but the volume situation is the only portion that I'm not happy with. So, thanks for the information and have a blissful New Year!;

You can try to turn the volume up on the laptop itself or in the video program itself. If you haven't already double click on the speaker icon in your tray and make sure the appropriate volume is turned up

    To embelish on the advice the other person gave you, It would be better to get external speakers with a seperate power source. If you get speakers that need to be plugged in to the wall you will get a lot more noise out of them

My 2005 equinox has a NEW delco radio but the front speakers still dont work when you set the fader to the front

Do you still hear warning chimes ?
The audible warnings alert the driver of a system concern or a critical vehicle condition. The radio generates the audible warnings. The BCM receives audible warning requests via the class 2 serial data line or the controller area network (CAN) data line. If the BCM receives multiple audible warning requests, the warning with the highest priority sounds first. The following lists the audible warning priority and the pulse rate:

Audio seems to increase volume

this is gotta be the largest complaint I hear from folks when they get a new flat screen , its not loud enough or the sound sounds muffled

flat screens are flat ! so theres no good way for mfg to put the speakers facing forward so sound has to hit the wall behind it first then gets directed forward to you ! (low/muffled)

sound bars help with this , but for true rich sound , id go with a video receiver amp combo , some of these even have built in dvd players , and arrange its speakers in a forward facing direction

There is a master attenuation adjustment on the back labelled MASTER ATT. By turning this setting down you effectively lower the output volume from the XLR (3 pin connections) giving you the ability to run more level through the desk and see the metering.
Another way is to run your speakers or amp at a lower volume and turn the djm800 up which will give the same result.

Hi, Ghost midi pickup on MF guitar : Midi volume wiill not increase progressively. Look at data input in computer : controler 7 data from 0 to 15 = no sound then at 16 sound will be audible but already...

The first thing is to verify the pot you are using has the correct taper... there are several types and the nomenclature is NOT too consistent. The second thing is to measure the voltage out of the pot to make sure it covers the range between the outside terminals. After that measure the voltage across the pot... I suspect it might be 5 volts... if you find it way below that, that would certainly be the problem. Note: I do not have schematics for this product and my comments here are based upon my engineering experience and how this sytem is likely to work. The MIDI convertor MAY use a PIC processor or similar.

Background music is loud but voices are barely audible when watching a DVD through the receiver. The cable through the receiver works normal. Please help!!!

The natual dolby digital is meant to be listened to loud.
There is a setup feature on the receiver called ATT (for attenuation). Set this to medium or high. This is a general answer - not specific to your model. You may have to do it through a setup menu or some receivers have an ATT button on the remote.

Volume display seems backward

This is because the volume knob on ANY stereo is actually an attenuator.  Meaning, the stereo would play at full blast (way too loud!) if left to it's own limits of power, so your volume knob is actually "dialing down" the power, or when fully turned up, letting it all flow.
The reason that the numbers change like that is it's showing you how much attenuation is happening in decibels, or dB, so for insTance, when it's at "-30" that's a pretty decent volume, but at "-5" it's much louder and your neighbors might complain.  I think you'll notice that it can be cranked to something like "+5" which on my AVR 100 will blow the speakers.
In other words, this is normal, so relax and enjoy the music!

If you use a digital cable box, it could be that the volume on that isn't turned up all the way. I didn't even realize the box had volume controls until 2 years after I got it...makes a HUGE difference now

Message alert volume

It seems to be a problem on all these Sony Ericsson phones.

You can make it louder by going to setting/profiles and select an outdoor profile.
Also choose a sound that is very audible, you'll have to download one. I recommend: Zedge,
