My Technika MP112R won't allow me to adjust the volume beyond the mid point of the volume bar, it brings up an 'ear' icon. This is due to the local EU regulations. Is there anyway to override this block? I...

From the tesco review page, Cableguy came up with a working solution "After hours of messing around with it, Managed to work out how to pass the volume limiter. When you get to the limit (20) and it beeps ans hows an image of an ear, whilst its showing that image, press the PAUSE/PLAY button. then press volume up and it will let you go upto 40."

I have just purchased an Iriver e30 and even at a top volume of 40, it is not very loud. I have tried a variety of different mp3 files and they are all the same. The radio is exactly the same and also...

It could be faulty, but try a different set of ear phones first. If the sounds on this set of ear phones are also low then the MP3 player is faulty.

The volume control on my new iPod Nano isn't working

The iPod Nano has the ability to "lock" the volume of music played at a particular level. Perhaps this only affects the volume of the earphones (versus the internal speaker). Please see "Setting The Maximum Volume Limit" in the user's manual:

The minimum volume setting is too loud for my ears. Is there anyway to gain a lower volume setting?

There are a couple of different ways to lower the volume. One is to check your settings to see if you have a volume limit setting and turn it on. Another way, check the settings and see if you have a equalizer setting, and see if it is turned on, then experiment with other settings. If you have a built in 4 band equalizer you can set the sliders all the way to the bottom and it should turn down the volume a good bit. Last, is to go and by cheep ear buds / head phones, the cheeper ones, take more volume / power to get loud.

My sansa fuse 8gb, when connected to my car stereo, does not play as loud as a radio station. i heard i need more amps from my mp3 player.

Some players do not have a high enough output level. You might require a simple preamp to boost the signal levels. Check that the max volume protection setting is switched off.

My ipod crackles and my hearing seems to be getting damaged

Id say you should go see a doctor. But for now id say that you should do your best to not listen to it for a while as it can affect hearing. try to use full on speakers if you can. On you tube there are a few Sub-Woofer sound tests you can do. Try playing one (low volume) and repeat. (not a song one) also to hear which frequencies are out of range to you click here. ( click the second icon on the list further down the page)

But yeah go see a doctor. Perhaps some ear drops.

Dynex iPod Dock with Remote Control connected to a tv. Volume not loud enough even though volume on tv and ipod volume are all the way up.

i had the same problem. it seems that you have to use the remote to turn the volume up on the ipod instead of doing it manually. that worked for me.

Volume not loud enough

Actually there is a way. If you re-encode the file using an mp3 conversion utility, you can adjust the volume there

Volume not loud enough

Hey everybody...
I guess hope you found the solution man...but you if not or for the people with the same peoblem that trying to find the way to make their amazing Sandisk Sansa clip...I have a weird but works solution...
So this what you need to do to make your player louder:
1)press to home butten
2)go to settings
3)go to system settings
and now comes to weird/funny part...if you'r an American or the "Volume" section apear to you than select it and choose high insted of normal otherwise when you got your player you pobably choose everythng other than North America as where you live...
so what you need to do is to Reset Factory Settings then press Yes then press English and lastly press North America...I guess if your from Iran you ****** off right...but ****....if it will make your Sansa go louder than **** it...
well hope I was helpfull for someone and I hope you will enjoy your player better than before...
