Acer H213H No sound

Hi, I have recently purchased this monitor with built in speakers but cannot get them to work. I am using the HDMI cable with an adaptor to connect the monitor, as I've read so far this could be an issue as the HDMI cable can also carry sound. Though in this case the sound would not be coming from the video card port (this is the case with people trying to hook up to PS3/Xbox). If anyone can help I would be very appreciative.

1. What adaptor are you using?
2. hdmi carries both audio and video signal
3. If your using an old dvi to hdmi cable the old dvi cables do not have the 4 extra pins for sound. 
SO..... best bet is to hit best buy up for a new dvi to hdmi cable.

Dude, the hdmi is just for the video signal, you'll have to use a separate audio cable to get sound from the integrated speakers.

I have internal speakers on the monitor and I can't get the external speakers to work. There are no troubleshooting directions.


Hi,

Try to check what type of connection you're using if its HDMI, DVI or VGA. If happens you're using HDMI it has a capability to give sound you just have to check the settings on the monitor or on the pc tower unlike the VGA and DVI you need to use speaker jack to have a sound on your monitor.

I have a liteview moniter but when connected to my computer it has no sound is there somthing wrong with the comp or the moniter


Most monitors dont have built in sound so check for a sound connection from the monitor. Check the cable where it connects to the PC, if there is a small light stereo plug, stick it into the light green connector on the back of the PC tower. The standard video cable does not have the connections for audio. If you are using a HD monitor that has inbuilt speakers, try using the HDMI connector if it has one, this does have the audio inbuilt, Some DVI cables have inbuilt audio, some do not, look for small round 2.5 mm stereo plugs not connected into anything..

No sound through external speakers


Although some monitors have built in speakers, most people have stand alone speakers. If the old monitor had built in speakers and now it is unplugged you won't hear sound. Even if the speaker cable is still plugged into the sound output on the back of your computer, the monitor must be plugged into an electrical outlet to have power.

I'd recommend buying a new set of external speakers if this is the situation.

If you never had speakers built into the monitor then normally changing monitors would make no difference whatever. The only explanation that makes sense under those conditions is that in the process of replacing the monitor, you dislodged the speaker jack from the sound output on the back of the computer.

Make sure your external speakers have electrical power plugged in, the power is on (green light on at least one speaker lights up) and the volume on the speakers is at least half way up.

Unplug the speaker from whatever hole it is plugged into and plug it firmly back in and test sound.

If still no sound other than some static on the speakers, try every single hole on the back of the computer that the jack will fit properly and test for sound.

Let me know if you have further questions.

I want to hook up external speakers to my Acer H213H for when my PS3 is hooked up to it.


What method are you using to connect to the monitor?

If you are using the HDMI -> DVI adapter it does not support sound. HDMI does, but DVI does not.

If that's the way you are set up then all you need to do is use the HDMI -> DVI adapter for your video and use the regular RCA connections for audio.

You can set the video and audio settings in the PS3 with the "Display Settings" and "Sounds Settings"

That way you just use the red and white RCA ends to connect to a speaker system, the yellow won't be in use at all.

Hi check the sound cable hasn't fallen out or come loose from the back of the monitor. After this reinstall the drivers for the monitor you will be able to download them from viewsonic if still not working then the speaker jack or speakers are faulty.
