How do i mute the beeping sound on my apc 2.2kva smart ups


Audible cannot be turned off directly on the device. Install the software that came with the UPS, there is a setting in the software that allows audible warnings to be turned off.

All of a sudden our receiver stopped working. The display looks fine, but there is no sound.


Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Source Selection, Mute, Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

If you have an aha moment turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

No sound output from my pioneer vsx-1014k using either CD, tuner or home theater inputs.


IOW, no audio from anywhere.

If it otherwise looks alive...

WARNING: Never use maximum volume for troubleshooting. The errant switch or control that you eventually find and flip will suddenly release the amp's full power and you'll destroy your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Look for a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Hi there, our amp is giving us very low sound output even when volume is turned up to maximum volume. We have been unable to find the remote and are wondering if the remote was turned right down would that...


I'd look at the front panel for the Mute Button and the Mute Indicator, but turn the volume down for any further investigations. If you can't hera the sound at 1/2 volume, it ain't there. No sense risking a sudden volume surge that will kill your speakers when you finally find the problem.

Also check the T-Mon Indicator. If it;s on you have the Tape selcted for listening instead of a source.

Volume/Mute Indicator: This

indicator will glow green when the

HK3270 is turned on. Its position

will enable you to judge the relative

volume of the unit even when the

speakers are muted or turned off.

When the indicator is pointing

towards the left, at an "8 o'clock"

position, the volume is low; when

it is pointing to the right, as in a

"3 o'clock" position, the volume is

loud. When the unit has been muted,

pressing the Mute button ïâthe
indicator will flash

2004 NISSAN SENTRA . THE VOLUME OF THE RADIO STOPPED WORKING. THE KNOB WORKS, THE BUTTONS FOR DIFFERENT RADIO STATIONS WORK. THERE IS JUST NO VOLUME.


same this happned to me in my 2006 sentra. the volume for the radio is gone. i can tune, its just barely audible/ quiet. weirdly though it sounds perfect when playing CDs. i almost thought maybe it got switched in to mute mode or something. did you figure out your problem?

There speakers r not putting out any music via the internet or my documents...but gives warning sounds


Check the volume control properties t oensure the speakers aren't muted, if they are not muted then the mainboard's volume control overide program has them turned down! To turn them up from there sumply locate your function key and they key that corrosponds with the volume up or volume down features. (usually the up or down arrows, but not always) they will be marked with a speaker icons and some variation of up or down markings.

As far as the warning sounds, that in its self is a seperate speaker unit that is not controlled the same way your actual speakers are, hence you can still hear the audio warning sounds. Good luck, thanks for using FixYa

Passport 8500 will no longer switch to LOUD mode


Try doing a factory reset as described in the user manual since it is possible that a power fluctuation has somewhat corrupted the internally saved user settings.
