    Go into your volume mixer and make sure nothing is muted.

Check your settings for sound in the control panel the fact that you can hear sound from the headphones indicates that the sound card is functioning correctly and not muted. It may be disabled in the control panel.

The sound on my symphonic 19" personal television can not be heard but the picture is fine. How do I get sound back on my tv without a remote control?


The earphone jack may be damaged. This takes the audio from the set and provides either a path to the speaker or when plugged in to the earphones. Try the earphones - if they work, the jack may be at fault. If the remote has muted the sound, turning the TV off then back on should reset the mute.

The sound is gone. I cannot hear anything when somebody calls me. However, the alarm sounds and all the rings. I can hear my music but only with earphones.


The loudspeaker is what the ringer uses as does the music, the inner speaker is used for hearing calls. Sounds like your inner speaker is faulty, check with where you bought it and it may be free to repair if its still under warranty (usually 12 months from date of purchase)

I can only hear a caller when using the speaker phone otherwise it is like my phone is on mute although they can hear me. Any possible solutions appreciated, not ready to replace just yet.


Hello there,

My dear friend, the problem is simply that the earphone of the bad/ damaged that is why you cannot hear anything on the phone. As long as your caller can hear you but you cannot hear them, then it is confirmed, because, the speaker is on a different side of where the earphone of the phone is.

The solution is just for you to have the earphone of the phone replaced.

But before replacing the earphone of the phone, you can use a bluetooth hands-free temporarily or an external earpiece that you can connect to the phone and be using on the phone temporarily before replacing the earphone of the phone.

Using a bluetooth hands-free or external earpiece is quite cheap and is of easy access.

Hope this was helpful to you.
Goodluck

I cant hear anything without earphones


If you have left the earphone plugged in to the laptop for a long time, this may have bent the contacts in the socket, and stopped the speakers from working.

I cant hear any phone calls without using earphone on my motorola w220 handset.& I cant see anything on my screen.


Did you make sure you disconnected it under bluetooth settings first? Because the phone might still be transferring the sounds to the earphone.

When ever I look at a video on my laptop I can hear the sound good but when i plug my earphones up it sounds funny u can hear them talk but it sounds funny i upgraded my sound still no change my earphones...


Hi, It seems the sound card might be defective, if you tested with some known good earphones in the computer, and you still have the same sound quality, then it might need to be replaced, HP should have diagnostics software within the computer, if you're able to access it to diagnose the ocmputer please do so, otherwise if your warranty is still valid with HP you should be able to contact them for a replacement or troubleshooting.
