Question about Dell W1700 17 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Controls All controls, including volume, audio settings (bass, treble, balance), etc, all go to the max setting when selected. I can hold down the tactile button on the TV and reduce the selections with the remote. When i release the button, the sound etc goes to the max setting again. This just started out of the blue.

Press and hold the menu button (either on the remote or the display itself). Other forums have said you only have to hold it down for 10 seconds, but that isn't accurate. I had to hold my menu down for about 30-45 seconds to unlock the OSD.

What are the frequencies that the bass and treble controls on a Yamaha AX-396 amplifier control? I recorded alot of music direct from the amp to my pc with the bass and treble controls at max and need to...

The bass and treble controls (as well as volume) have no effect on the recorded output if you're using the traditional jacks a tape deck would use. Only PRE-OUTS get massaged by sound controls.

Even if you DID affect the recorded signals, WHY are you using such exaggerated settings? Or was it by mistake?

In theory, passing the modified output back through the same controls (set to Minimum this time) would undo most of the unwanted effect. Assuming their precise and mirror image for gain and loss.

How do i adjust the treb/bass?

my initial reply was...On the function button you may need to depress it for 3 seconds to activate base, treble, balance etc But
then I found this, "Rotary Volume Control: The CD receiver uses a 7-way rotary volume control that increases and decreases the volume of the stereo from 0 to 35. The rotary knob also controls other audio settings such as Balance, Fader, Bass, Mid, Treble and preset EQ settings. In addition, the rotary knob allows you to scroll through and select your music tracks when the Music Search function is activated.
Cheers, this should help ya.

Hello 1rocknroller,

Press the mode button repeatedly to select BASS, TREBLE, SUBW, BALANCE, FADER, DEFEAT, AND VOLUME. When subwoofer mode is set to off, it's level cannot be adjusted. If DEFEAT is set to ON, the player returns to factory defaults. Turn the volume control to adjust the setting. If no adjustment is made within 5 seconds after selecting, the player returns to normal mode.

Hope this helps.

I need to find out what buttons control the bass and treble

Press in on the volume control repeatedly to step through the menu of audio functions. The
first option is Volume, followed by subwoofer (only if the subwoofer feature is currently
activated), Bass, Treble, Balance, Fader and back to Volume. When adjusting audio functions,
the unit will automatically exit audio control mode after five seconds of inactivity
