I have a Jvc - LT42EM59. The sound just stopped working but I have a perfect picture. ???


Check your mute button or the sound if going through a dvd or surround sound that will do it as well check the volumes on those. Try on the set the volume controls and then go into the menu and see if someone changed the settings.

My microphone on Presario F762NR stopped working i did troubleshooting and it did not find any problem! maybe it is turned off somewhere and i don't know where!


Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

Sound not coming


Ok, not much information to go on here...
Here are some logical steps to try: 1. Try raising the volume using the keyboard. Usually there are keys with volume up and down on them. 2. Plug some headphones/speakers into the computer and see if they work ok (If they do, your onboard speakers are bust) 3. Go to Start Menu, settings, control panel, sound and see if it says 'no sound device'. If not, go to the volume controls and check that none of them have the 'mute' box ticked (often a problem in XP and Windows 7). If it says 'no sound device' or similar, you need to install the driver either from the CDs that came with the computer, or by going to dell.com, finding your machine, downloading the sound driver and running it.

My speakers were working fine and they just stopped but they still work on my ipod


They may be muted in the control panel. Look for the little speaker icon at the lower right hand side of your screen.

Or the sound engine may be malfunctioning. Try restarting the PC.

Volume


Did it stop working or has it ever worked before?

Make sure there is a cable running from your computer to the monitor's integrated speakers. It should go from a green 3.5mm output jack at the back of the computer to one the same size in the back of the monitor. If the cable is there and still no sound, double check the connection, make sure they are plugged in securely at both ends. Be sure that headphones are not plugged into the computer at the same time or audio will only come out through the headphones.

Make sure the audio is not muted. There is a mute in possibly 3 places. One spot is the application audio: if you're trying to play from Windows Media Player, make sure the audio is not muted near the slider and that the volume is loud enough to hear.
Second place is the system volume. In the Control Panel, Audio (Start menu, Settings, Control Panel, Audio component) you can check the volume and mute of the system volume.
Third location is the monitor speakers. There may be a way in the monitor's menu to adjust the volume for the speakers. Make sure it is high enough to be audible.

If all of those are unmuted and high, you might try replacing the audio cable. Also reboot the computer with the audio cable plugged in where it should be. (Sometimes high-def digital audio can be quirky). Next try plugging in a pair of headphones into the front of the computer and see if you're getting any sound through there.

Those steps should help you diagnose the problem. If not, just post back with what you found out through these steps.

Volume and mute buttons suddenly stopped working


Try changing the batteries. Most times the "tivo" buttons will work but the "tv" buttons will stop working when the batteries are low.

If you have done that, go back into settings and program the remote again for your tv, then give it a shot.
