22" HDTV Gateway monitor volume control

Just bought this awesome monitor. It's also a stand-alone HDTV, so we hooked it up as a TV and started watching it. It has internal speakers, but no volume control, even on the sidebar menu, and it's very loud, so unless everyone in the house is either awake or passed out, I can't watch it. There is an extra item I can order for $30 that will add a control to it, but I can't believe they would sell a TV with no volume control. I will also be hooking it up to a computer. Tech support told me this monitor has no speakers in it, but I'm telling you it does and it's very loud. Anyone know what to do? It's a 2275 model, brand new as of 7-7-07. Three people have turned it upside down and all around and there is NO volume control, only USB ports and cable/wire hookups. The touch menu on the sidebar does not have a volume choice.

I have the same monitor. There is a way to turn down the volume for the internal speakers. Go to Main menu on the monitor, Advance settings, then into Audio Feed Back. Then adjust the volume from there.

Well that is weird isn't it? As far as hooking to the PC is concerned volume is easy- control it from the PC. In a normal audio set up - Hi-Fr/Radio/TV there are in fact two amplifiers. One is the preamp to imports all the bass /treble and all that and volume. the out put amp - plain vanilla flat power I suggest that this is the case with this screen it has no pre amp it relies on an external Audio input .

I bought my 2yr old son a daewoo vcr combo tv model # dvq13h1fc and it didn't come with a remote. It does not have a menu button on the tv, so im trying to figure out how I can hook his dvd player up so he...

Many combo tvs are simplified so as to play its own dvds or in this case its own vhs tapes. Never purchase a combo unit unless you wish it to be stand alone. Always look for how many plug-ins are on a tv before you purchase it. The number of plug-ins is a sure way of telling the quality of the tv or any other device. If all you have is a co-axial input then use that to send a signal from a dvd player that has a co-axial in and a co-axial out. Turn the tv to channel 3 to play through a dvd player. Use the remote control from the cable company to change channels on their box and change the volume manually unless you can find a setting for that to change the internal volume in the cable box.

I just bought a standard studio by fisher fm-600, do i need an amplifier to hook it up?

According to the picture of one on eBay it appears to be an old school stand-alone tuner so, yes, you need an integrated amp to drive speakers.

The lack of speaker posts on the back and a volume control on the front are big clues that it has no amps.
