Hi, I can broadcast, but I can't hear anything incoming. Volume is up, and I get the beep when I turn the set on. Not sure why I can't hear any responces tho. This is the same with a mic attached or just the radio it's self.

The CTCSS (tone squelch) is probably turned on. If it is, you must have the same tone set on both the transmitters and receivers

You can not hear anything on the hand set but thepeople calling can hear you


Dear Karen,
If you have a standard cell phone, the problem is likely your volume button.
The volume button controls the ringer loudness, and the same volume controls all of your calls incoming.
If your ring tone is loud, probably your volume is turned down for you to hear.
The same button controls both functions.
To change it, next time someone calls you, try pressing the volume button to "louder" WHILE they are talking to you.
God bless your efforts.

I have a Nokia 2730 and have paired it with my parrot hands free device in the car, but cannot hear anything when receiving a call, even though the caller display shows the incoming call I don't hear...


Go under your settings menu function on the the phone and make sure the volume is not muted,
if so turn the volume up, the second thing you can try is removing the battery from the phone
for about 2 to 5 minutes then reinstalling it resets the phone back to factory default, you will
not lose any contacts and or other information on the phone this just causes the startup
functions to reactivate

How do I turn off the ringer volume??


I found this at hp website.

Adjust the volume
Your HP all-in-one provides three levels for adjusting the ring and speaker volume.
The ring volume is the volume of the phone rings. The speaker volume is the level of
everything else, such as the dial tones, fax tones, and button press beeps. The default
setting is Soft.
1 Press Setup.
2 Press 4, and then press 6.
This selects Basic Fax Setup and then selects Ring and Beep Volume.
3 Press to select one of the options: Soft, Loud, or Off.
Note If you select Off, you will not hear a dial tone, fax tones, or incoming ring
tones.
4 Press OK.

Can't hear ringer


I had this same problem with my Blackberry. You should check the settings on your sound and volume for incoming calls and make sure you have a tone set. You can also find a way to amplify your ringtone by hooking it up to your computer. If you dont' hear anything at all, then check the buttons on the side and see if that increases the volume. Please rate my answer.

I can make and receive calls, but I cannot hear anything.


Check Windows Sound mixer for application volume. Down in system tray at right side of taskbar double click sound icon for XP or click sound icon once and click Mixer for Vista. Look through volume settings for your phone application. Make sure it is not muted and volume is up.

Need to make sure programmed


Program the Midland 74-109 Weather Radio
a) Turn unit on. Extend the antenna. Adjust volume up slowly; Do you hear anything? If not, try replacing the 9 volt battery with a fresh one, in the accessible battery compartment underneath the unit. Repeat above steps.
b) If no sound is heard, turn unit over and look for "WEATHER" slide switch on bottom. With unit on & volume adjusted to comfortable hearing level, slowly slide switch down (or up) through various frequencies [1)162.550, 2) 162.400, 3) 162.475, 4) 162.425, 5) 162.450, 6) 162.500, 7) 162.525] until voice transmissions are heard. This should be the closest National Weather Service (NWS) broadcast for your area. Check the NWS website at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrbro.htm for your state, click on the state name, and look for the site name or site location nearest you. The frequency for that site should be the strongest, and appropriate for your area.
c) You can set the alert tone, for special weather alert broadcasts, on the bottom of the unit on the slide switch marked "ALERT". Set the switch to the desired type of alert: 1) LED [LED on top of unit (marked ALERT) lights up when alert is broadcast-no siren tone/alarm is heard] 2) LED & ALARM [LED lights up and alarm/ siren tone is heard] 3) VOICE [LED on top of unit lights up and voice broadcast is heard, only; no siren tone/alarm is heard].
d) Be sure to press the "ALERT" button on top of the unit and leave the volume at a comfortable listening level to hear weather alerts for your area (Alert LED on top of unit lights up to show Alert function is active). You can test the present volume level by pressing the "TEST" button. Be sure to press the "ALERT" button again after listening to the volume level to re-set the Alert function. You can listen to weather broadcasts anytime, by pressing the "WEATHER" button. After listening, be sure to re-press the "ALERT" button to reset the Alert function.
e) 9 volt battery life should last about 6 to 7 months, depending on how much unit is used an number of alerts received. Replace battery every 6 months, or when you replace your smoke alarm battery, or at beginning and end of daylight savings time. A 12 volt AC adapter to replace the battery, can be used. One should have been supplied with unit. If not, a replacement can be found at Radio Shack.
f) This should complete your Midland Weather Alert Radio Model 74-109 programming.

Kenwood KDC-BT838U -- Low audio on incoming phone calls only.


Patrick -
I have the reverse problem.  Callers can hardly hear me. I saw a setting in the headunit that allows you to specify where the audio plays for incoming calls.  You can choose the Left Front Speaker, the Right Front Speaker or Both.  Check the manual and make sure its set to both.
Regards, Charlie
