Acer iconia tablet problem

Few things.
If you are talking about the built in speakers, make sure your volume is turned up. And make sure its turned up when the headphones are not plugged in. My android tablet has individual sound profiles so while I might have the sound muted when the headphones are not plugged in, if I plug them in, the volume jumps to my set level because that's where I turned the volume up to last time the headphones were plugged in. I've also had two tablets that the speakers went out completely on that to is a possibility but if you are talking about the built in speakers, check the volume levels first. You can get to them in the settings menu. Its worth noting that plugging anything into the headphone jack will "turn off" the internal speakers altogether.

If you are talking about external, plug into the jack speakers, on a tablet, you're going to need a set of powered speakers as that jack is not going to produce enough power to drive an un-amplified speaker. Make sure you are using a pair of speaks that plug into the wall such as PC speakers.

Second, if you are using powered speakers and still not getting any where, look at the jack end of your head phones and compare it to the jack end of your speakers. I know iPhones and other Apple devices have an extra connect which is why the Apple head phones all have an extra ring. My older headphones are worthless in my iPhone because they lack said extra connection. It's possible your tablet also requires the newer connection and the headphones have that while your speakers don't.

Broad answers, but I couldn't tell exactly what we were looking at based on the questions. Hope it helps, and good luck!

Deep fryer reset button

Don't know which model you have but I have the DF-280. I had the same issue many people are having (my unit would not power on). The power cord is fine as I've confirmed this with a digital voltmeter. Turns out this particular unit has a safety switch on the right side of the metal/plastic brain unit housing. The switch is underneath the plastic protrusion that is perpendicular (or at a right angle) to the detachable electric plug. You probably won't notice it unless you look for it. My guess is the switch became less sensitive with use and despite being properly mounted to the fryer base, the brain unit did not recognize that it is properly mounted to the fryer base and therefore would not turn on.

The easiest fix for this is to stuff a small piece of paper towel slightly into the slit where the switch is activated and then remount the brain unit onto the fryer base. Another option is to replace the switch or buy a whole new fryer. If your switch actually was the problem, it should now turn on and work properly as mine did. Hope this helps...

I am getting no audio at all from computer. Green plug is plugged into green out plug at back of computer but I am still not getting any sound

Make sure that all of your software / drivers are up to date for your sound card. Make sure that your speaker power is plugged in (if it has external power). Also check to make sure that all of your audio sources are un-muted. ( Speaker on taskbar / control panel settings, as well as the sound settings from the program you are using.

No audio ran a check and says the audio is working but I can't get any sound thru the speakers

I don't want to make you feel like I think your stupid but have you checked to see if the speakers are working? It's easy, ust unplug them from the computer and plug them into a MP3 player or anything that uses headphones to make sure the speakers are working, if not figure out the problem with them, batteries, is it plugged into power, is it turned up, etc.
If you know the speakers are working, click on the volume control and check to see if the mute box is checked, if you have a expanded volume control check every channel for the mute check box. if there is no check in the mute check box's make sure all the sliders controls are turned up.
If your still having problems try to reload the drivers for your sound card and see if that fixes it. Finally if you have a extra sound card replace the card and see if the other card works and go from there.
Some worms, malware, and viruses can check the mute boxes, also some programs (IE: games and other programs that uses the sound system) can have automatic settings that can mute the volume and does not un-mute it when you close the program, making the sound un-available for other things until you uncheck the mute boxes.
Check the mute boxes, reload the sound drivers, check the functioning of the speakers.
Good luck!

It sound like your computers sound card drivers might be un-installed. Assuming you have a dell computer go to the following link Click on Drivers and Downloads type in your service tag number located on the side of your case. Scroll down and find the sound card driver relevant to your operating system, download and install. Let me know how you make out.

Having problems with batteries i guess, you can plug it up and charge it all night it don't do nothing and you can un-plug it and plug it back up and it will go across the room and quit

Yep, sounds like it's new batteries time. Make sure you get the proper batteries for your chair. You wan't sealed, lead-acid deep-cycle batteries.

Sound won't work without the earphones being plugged in

Make sure the speaker volume is turned up and also go into Control Panel, Sounds and make sure nothing is muted and all volumes are turned up. Also make sure the speakers are plugged into the sound jack in the back of the pc. The speakers also need power but since the light is on, it sounds like they are plugged in.

Hey, i dont know what sound card i have, theres somthing wrong though.. plz help

assume "something wrong" means "there's no sound" coming out of the speakers. A few things to check first:

1) Make sure your cable to your speakers is plugged in, and plugged into the right jack. It should be the green one on the back of your PC.

2) Click on the "speaker" icon down on your task bar (right-hand side), and that will open up your sound settings. Make sure it isn't a) muted, or b) turned way down low.

3) If you have powered speakers (plugged into the wall), make sure they are getting power to them.

After you've done all that, figure out what model computer you have, and based on that I can probably tell what kind of sound card you have (most these days are built onto the motherboard).
