It is possible that a virus can do that. Please make sure your Windows is updated by going to Start-->Help and Support, then in the Pick a Task section click "Keep your computer up-to-date with Windows Update"

CANT TURN VOLUME UP ON LAPTOP


Hi...
Your problem may be due to some problems.
among these are problems in the audio driver or settings problem ataupau speaker on your computer's sound system has changed.
The first thing you need to ensure that the whole setting on your sound system is activated or the situation could possibly use.
if the same problem, do troubleshooting on your speakers using the ear phone to troubleshooting.
If the status remains the same, check your sound drivers or remove the existing driver and then re mamasangnya the updated driver from the manufacturer.
if all these measures are not successful, you need to reinstall the operating system (reformat) to identify whether the problem comes from the operating system or device. but if you do not want to take the decision to reformat the operating system, you can just change the sound device and all your problems should be done, unless there is a problem of your operating system from virus attacks, it is likely it also will disrupt the operation of a voice device.

All of a sudden no sound for the DVR. All others have voice.


Check the obvious: A mute control activated or volume down on the unidentified DVR? Check the Audio path from the DVR, port assignment on the Yam if the audio is digital, maybe look at the manuals.

I have tv hooked up to the pioneer but the TV will not play its sound through the speakers? what Am I doing wrong? I have the DVD hooked to the Pioneer and it works fine.


Is the unidentified TV a sound source from the SX-315's perspective? Is it's audio output enabled whene the TV volume is down? Would the Cable Box be a BETTER source?

When playing a movie,everything sounds great until the actor speak.it sound very low or as if it were muted?


Your unidentified electronics probably has a manual that explains how the center channel functions and how to test and calibrate all of the speakers BEFORE you assess overall sound.

Your unidentified source may also be responsible for the missing dialog.

Need help setting up samsung Ht-tx 72 dvd home theater system jus to get sound to come from tv thru the surround sound speakers


Look in the manual...

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Samsung-HT-TX72-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/2771dj593/t/2/

The TV >>receives<< Video and Audio from the Samsung. Page 19.

The unidentified TV with its unknown audio capabilites has a manual somewhere, too.

How many TV's are actual audio sources?

If the TV is actually a root source of programming (say, through its own antenna) you can run cables from it to the Samsung as you would any other audio source. If the audio really comes fro ma Cable Box THAT is where the best TV-related audio will come from.

I have an old Philips Amplifier which I bought 18 years ago. The Amp actually can handle 5 speakers but I only connect 2 speakers (L & R). When I play certain DVD, although the background music sounds...


If you identified the specific products involved we (and you) might be able to look at the documentation and verify the obvious answer. Voice is generally concentrated on the center channel, so, yes, a speaker there would be a good idea.

If you don't have a multi-channel rig you shouldn't feed multichannel audio to it. Maybe use the unidentified DVD player's analog output and make sure it's set to mix the channels down to stereo.

I have a Onkyo TX-8222 receiver. Sound is ok for music but voices are very low. When two voices, one is very clear abd the other very low. What is the problem ?


You don't say what source(s) are affected. I'm guessing TV or Cable-TV is the problem because music with vocals has voices and you say it sounds ok. Your speakers have no clue whether a sound is a voice or music so that lets THEM out and your receiver doesn't know or care either.

In the modern multichannel world it's usually assumed your electronics are multichannel. This receiver is old-school stereo.

The Center channel is usually where voices are found but some systems (like yours) don't have a Center speaker so they have to be configured to share the Center duty with the front left and Right speakers.This isn't possible or even normally necessary in your case. WYSIWYG

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Onkyo-TX-8222-Receivers-manual/id/469ci869/t/2/

The audio coming in from 'wherever' should be correctly mixed to 2-channels at the source or you'll probably be missing something. I'd look higher up the audio food chain for where the voices are being attentuated. If a cable box is involved I'd look at its audio settings regarding stereo mix-down

Wait, I just had an inspiring thought. Centered voices being mono in nature would partially cancel out if your two speakers were out of 'phase' with each other. Bass would also suffer. Make sure your two speakers are wired identically regarding the red and black (or plus and minus) conductors. If turning the Balance control fully to one side makes bass of voices sound louder you probably have a phase mismatch. Reverse the wiring on either speaker to match the other. There is no absolute right or wrong for phasing as long as they're all the same.

Our Dell computer speakers work but the sound is not normal voices. It's like the voices are animated


It is possible that a setting on your soundcard has the pitch of the voices higher than normal or an effect is turned on that isnt required. Have you tried plugging the speakers into another source to see if it sounds the same?

Surround center speaker does not work


This is a 5.1 (6 Channel Technology) You should hear only the voice thro the center speaker. If the source you are playing is stereo, however the software splits the source its difficult to seprate the voice track, if the source is a DTS 5.1, then you should hear the voice only thro the center speaker. eg: when you play a DVD movie which is DTS 5.1 then you should hear only the voice track in the center speaker, if the dvd movie is just stereo then you will not hear any audio in the center speaker, while the other four speakers get output, this is the special effect in 5.1 ( 6 channel Output).
