Hi Gemma. You will need to state the connection type that you are using. If it is via a VGA cable, blue 15 pin D connector, then it will not carry sound, neither will a DVI, bigger white connector. Only an HDMI cable will carry sound and video. If you use HDMI, make sure that you set the HDMI as sound device as well. If you are usinf VGA or DVI, you will need to add an audio cable, 3.5mm stereo audio from your speaker/earphone jack on the laptop to "Sound In" on the TV. Hope this helps!

Probably the Controller unit for the TV. Try hooking it up through a different connection type e.g. HDMI, component. See if that fixes the issue for the time being. If it dies then those ports you used previously are malfunctioning.

Playing movies from external hard drive


Hi rox09
Well you can rip your DVD to any external drive using and third party DVD ripping software ,once you do that you will get a AVI,MPEG and any common fomats your DVD player supports

Inorder to play those files in your DVD player ,you need the check whether your DVD has a USB input port or else if you laptop or computer has a S-video out put and your TV has S-Video input ;you can play directly from your laptop/computer to the TV using a S-video Cable which is available in any Computer shop.
I hope this helps

Volume low when watching dvd


Not much you can do about this. The movie industry sets movies to low volume when recording for better sound. They expect you to have the equipment to boost the sound. This cuts down on their outside noise. Only solution for this is to install external speakers as I have done for my movie or TV playing (I installed a TV adapter so I could hook up a projector and display the BIG game outside) but as you say, we couldn't hear it until I hooked up external speakers.

How do i get sound to work in recorded movies


Some cameras you CANNOT play back on the camera, but it only works on the computer. Nothing is wrong, because that camera is basic. So yeah.
