    Hello, no hum or noise. Just very low volume. The volume wheel on the front not working any longer is weird.
    I think it may have happened after I played a video from youtube, not sure. I then tried to convert it from flv to avi, with a program I downloaded, but it would not convert. I have uninstalled the converting program.

    Hello, yes I can control the volume through the controls on screen.

    I did a system restore thing last night, Iwent back to a date in April. The volume is much better now, but the volume wheel still has no effect. At least it is now at a better level, still weird how the manual volume control will not work.

    Can you control the volume thru the speaker in the bottom right hand corner of the screen?

    Is there any kind of hum noise or any other interference in the speaker when you play any songs or sounds?

Very low speaker volume with all controls maxed

Problem solved... It's embarrassing to report actually. The A3 has a manual volume control knob which sits quite inconspicuous at the front RH side of the case. Just never noticed it...
