What have you tried so far? could you post the brand and model.

without knowing anything about your machine I can suggest you try unplugging it for a hour or a day / for a night and see if its reset on the morning, or look for a reset button.

How to Mute Sounds Using Your Hand on the Samsung Galaxy S4

1) Go to the Settings app. Look for the gear icon and tap it.
2) Tap on the "My device" tab at the top to access your device settings.
3) Scroll down with your finger and tap on "Motions and gestures". It should be under the "Input and control" section.

No sound on ipad

1. If you have no sound at all, even in the Music App, try rebooting the iPad.
Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.
2. If you lost sounds for keyboard clicks, games or other apps, email notifications and other notifications, system sounds may have been muted.
System sounds can be muted and controlled two different ways. The screen lock rotation can be controlled in the same manner as well.
Settings>General>Use Side Switch to: Mute System sounds. If this option is selected, the switch on the side of the iPad above the volume rocker will mute system sounds.
If you choose Lock Screen Rotation, then the switch locks the screen. If the screen is locked, you will see a lock icon in the upper right corner next to the battery indicator gauge.
If you have the side switch set to lock screen rotation then the system sound control is in the control center. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to get to control center . Tap on the bell icon and system sounds will return.
If you have the side switch set to mute system sounds, then the screen lock can be accessed in the same manner as described above.
This support article from Apple explains how the side switch works.
3. Try cleaning the dock connector opening of the iPad with a soft brush and just a little bit of rubbing alcohol.
4. Reset all settings. Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings.

Volume Stopping Instantly

A few things to consider: if mute on the set is not on what about the box if you are using one?

Speakers could be switched off in the set.
There could be a internal / external speaker switch(not common but possible)
Sound on the set could be muted or turned real low or off.

if the image you see on the screen is there--either it is from the set or a box if one is used.

only a few things other than the sound circuit being bad will cause this--very few sets with actual no sound problems are around.

Where is the ipad mute button cant get any sound fron down loaded war game

The mute switch is on the right side of the iPad. Check your switch settings first:

Tap Settings > General.

Under "Use Side Switch to:", select Lock Rotation or Mute.
Settings > General

Make sure you're using it to mute, and then slide the switch to toggle mute on and off. Also use the volume rocker in case you have the volume set too low.

When mute the system I lose all sound and get get it back

I assume you mean you CAN'T get volume back afer hitting MUTE on the remote. I also assume you have tried to hit MUTE again, and INCREASE VOLUME and they also do not work. Easiest first try is to change remote batteries and clean battery contacts, and cross your fingers. If you are using a programmable Universal Remote, you may need to try an alternate programming code ... sometimes the wrong code allows some functions to work and not others. If you can get your hands on a second remote, try it again and if it works, then your first remote is broken. If not the remote, as a guess it sounds like the mute circuit is latching-up (the electrical equivalent of a stuck switch). This can be caused by anything from a bad transistor (or IC) to a bad capacitor to ground on the mute circuit. If you can locate the mute circuit on the board you can try replacing these parts (a transistor or capacitor are probably inexpensive enough to try - an IC is probably not worth it, and you will live without the convenience of a working mute). You can also try to reheat the solder joints on the circuit board for the Mute Circuit section of the board -- just re-liquify the solder and get a shiney connection. If you have a bad connection or cold solder joint it could cause the problem. Obviously, DO NOT TRY THIS IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO AVOID ELECTRICUTION - sets hold a pretty stiff charge even after unplugging them, and can really hurt if you get zapped.

When I plug the USB cabl int he PC I lose sound for the windows meda player

Check volume control and Mixer settings for mutes. still have the problem, If you are using pci sound card then open cpu, and just remove sound card and put it back, if it is onboard sound then just remove cmos battery for 1 or 2 minute and put it back (before removing cmos battery, just write it down the bios settings). still have problem, just buy the " pci sound card" . No need to change the Motherboard . best of luck...

Tomtom one xl

Either the volume is right down or the mute is on. The volume is generally adjusted by touchscreen-I think it is on the right hand side-cant remember if its top or bottom. If that is fully up then its muted. Look through your menu and somewhere in the settings or sounds you will see an icon of a speaker. There may or not be a red cross over it. You need to put mute off.That should restore your sound.

Sound all of a sudden stopped working

Remove any games from unit. Remove unit from charger, if that is its condition. remove battery from unit. Allow unit to sit for 5 min. replace battery. Power up unit, re-set initial settings and check for sound. No sound? wire inside unit going to slide switch for volume has come detached, or switch itself gone bad.

Check setup and setting to make sure sound is not muted, although I do not recall that being one of the options.
