Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

No sound from speakers. Everything else OK.

Re: Sharp SD SG11 The unit lights up properly. Both CDs and MDs play fine .... works well through headphones. But no sound from speakers at all. Have checked and replaced speaker wires using both direct and banana plug connections. Absolutely no sound from speakers .... not even a hint of hum or static.

    Thanks dunnbiker.  Actually I figured out the problem after finding and downloading the user manual.  I'd received the two piece unit just this morning from a friend who is moving out of the country and was getting rid of most of his things.  I therefore wasn't familiar with the equipment at all.  Because it's a two piece dedicated system, there's a special connector cord with computer-like connectors which joins the two together.  What I wasn't aware of however, is that the special cord doesn't make all the connections between the control center and the separate amplifier.  A regular stereo RCA cable had to be attached between the two as well.
      
    The manual explained that right away and I was soon up and running.


    Thanks very much for your help and quick response however.  I'll definitely be using this site in the future should I have any more technical problems.

If headphones work then so does the amplifier. When did this problem start? From what I can find it almost sounds like it thinks you have headphones plugged in, which would disable the speakers.

My speakers haven't been working properly for a while and I was wondering how to fix this. They sometimes work (very rarely) but then they just cut off, the music will still be playing but I won't be


If it always works with headphone - without fail - then it is likely the fault is within the headphone socket. You'll appreciate that when you plug in headphone, the speakers in the laptop are cut off - which is a mechanical break in connection caused by the plug. Sadly, it sounds like it is staying disconnected.

What speakers are for MDS JE 330


Any kind you want. The MDS JE330 needs to be connected to an amplifier to use regular loudspeakers, so the choice depends on your amplifier, room size and budget.

You can also connect small active or passive speakers designed for portable units such as mp3 players or those used on desktop pc's to the headphone socket, but the sound quality won't be very good.

Speakers are plugged in properly but won't work


Hi Rachelle,

First of all, make sure that the sound is not accidentally muted.

If the sounds seem to play, it means that your speaker cables are faulty or have some kind of break in them. Or, your speakers or the electronics inside them developed some kind of fault.

Unplug the speakers and the speaker cables and test them on another computer. If they work fine on another computer, the problem could be your sound drivers. You could also test the sounds, using a headphone in place of the speakers. If you can hear the sounds fine with the headphones, the problem is with the speakers or the cables.

This may be less likely since the sounds seem to play, but it's still possible that your sound driver is incorrect or not the one meant for your sound card.

Start the Device Manager (Right-click My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager) and under the "Sound, video and game controllers", see that the sound driver is listed.

Double click the item in that list that contains the word "audio device" in its name. Does Device Manager say that the device is working properly? If Device Manager says that the audio device is not working properly, or if there is a yellow exclamation mark next to the device, or if it says that the drivers are not installed for this device, install the drivers from the CDs or from the laptop manufacturer's website. However, there's an easier way to do this, as given below.

Here's the easy way to get or update your sound drivers:

You could try to use this driver scanning tool, which scans the computer for needed drivers and has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free tool from here or directly from this link.

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

If, after trying with the above method, sound still can't be heard, you can try with the System Restore. To know more about System Restore, go to this link.

If none of the above methods worked, pull out your sound card and test it in another computer. You can also try re-installing Windows and lastly try another sound card, if it still fails to work.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

My sony 771 won t play any sound -- not the speakers because doesn't come through headphones either. Just cleaned the lens for CDs last night, then this problem developed. Can see the amp bars moving, so...


The lit indication ("amp bars") proves that the aduio signal is getting through the unit's circuitry @ least to that point; lack of sound @ the spkr & headphones indicates the amplifier portion of the circuitry is either inoperative or disconnected from the load (i.e., either the speakers, or the headphones). A common cause of this type of problem cropping up unexpectedly is the headphone jack itself; in most products of this type, the audio path from the amplifier output to the speaker connection runs through the headphone jack, so the the speakers may be "turned off" when the headphones' plug is inserted into the jack. If the unit's owner uses headphones regularly, the most common problem to be found with the jack is loose solder connections to the printed circuit board's traces from the jacks' lead(s); in units with this problem whose owner's irregularly use the headphones, it's more common to find oxidization of the electrical contacts within the jack itself.

No sound form the headphones jack? The mini disc is playing on the frunt of the player can see.


Are you getting audio out of the back jacks on the unit? If audio output is okay, it's just the headphone circuit/jack.

Din Unlock - Unable to record


You must have the unit switched to "DIGITAL" input - switch it to "ANALOG" and record that way. The "DIN UNLOCK" is when you have the lack of a proper digital signal, or a digital signal with copy protection, like you cannot make a digital copy of a digital Minidisc, etc...Does that make sense? Let me know if the "Analog" setting works for you. Good luck.

Acer Aspire 1406 no sound issue


So sometimes laptops play up when the headphone socket gets a bit worn. If you wiggle a headphone jack in the socket (put it in at different angles, and rub around) sometimes the sound will come back.

There are two prongs that "detect" the headphones, and cut the speakers... and if they don't "un-contact" when the headphones are removed, the speakers stay off.

You'd need someone to solder a new headphone socket on the mainboard to properly fix it, but if you wiggle and get the speakers back, they should stay back until you use the headphone socket again.
