Hello Fixya customer,

Thank you for your question.

Are you getting on the display, possibly a "P" or "Protect" that indicates it is in the protect mode?

Hitting the top of the receiver indicates a possible intermittent component or board connection. The receiver will shut down when the Microprocessor receives various fault conditions, including shorted speaker and wires, but if it develops an internal fault it will also shut down to protect itself and the speakers.

Remove all speaker wires and inspect th terminals for any stray wires shorting the terminals.

If it still shuts down, then a professional servicer would be required.

Thanks for using Fixya, and if I can help you further, please let me know.

How to detect microphone in laptop


Hi,

I think it would be better if we check that the built-in microphone is working on your machine.

Internal microphone

The internal microphone is located near the top of the notebook LCD display or near the bottom of the LCD display near the hinge. Use the following best practices to better capture sound with the microphone.

-Adjust the notebook PC screen to place the microphone in the best direction for receiving sound.

-Speak directly into the microphone. Avoid speaking away from the microphone.

-When using the internal microphone, choose an environment without background noise.


Testing the record function on the notebook PC

1. Click Start , then Programs , Accessories , Entertainment , and then Sound Recorder .
2. Click Record (the red dot) and speak into the microphone.
3. When you are finished recording, click Stop (the gray rectangle).
4. To play back the recording, click Play (the gray arrow pointing to the right).

If happens that the recording with the microphone have no sound we have check the settings.

Checking microphone settings

1. Click Start , then Programs , Accessories , Entertainment , and then Volume Control .
2. A Volume Control or Master Volume window opens.
3. Click Options , and then Properties .
4. Select Recording , and make sure Microphone is selected.
5. Click OK . The Volume Control window should change to a Recording Gain Control window.
6. Click Options again and then click Advanced Controls . If Advanced Controls is unavailable, then an alternate microphone is not available. Proceed to the next series of steps.
7. Remove the check next to Alternate microphone , click Close , and test the microphone. If there is still no sound, continue to the next step

Ensuring the correct recording device is selected

1. Access sound properties:

-In Windows XP, to access the sound control panel applet, click Start , then Control Panel . Click Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices , and then click Sounds and Audio Devices .

-In Windows 95, 98, and Me, click Start , Settings , and Control Panel . Double-click Sounds and Multimedia , or Multimedia . The Sounds and Multimedia Properties window opens.

2. Click the Audio tab.

3. Under Sound Playback , select the audio device that is installed on the computer (there should be only one).

4. Under Sound Recording , select the audio device that is installed on the computer. It should be the same as the listing under Sound Playback .

5. Click OK .

6. Close the Sound and Multimedia Properties window and test the recording.


Feel free to reply if happens the steps I've told you is not working. Hope it helps.

Home AC Air Handler is making Annoying clicking sounds randomly


It sounds like the problem is with the louvre swing motor which is either opening or closing the louvre but not stopping at the end. This is due to a faulty intergrated circiut (IC) programmable chip on the PC board. Only way to get around it is to replace the board.

  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.

Sound drive is not installed or not working properly


Click Start > Settings (classic menu) or directly to > Control Panel > System,

Click the Hardware tab at the top. Click Device Manager and find the category "Sound, video and game controllers".

Click the plus sign and see if there is an Audio controller listed or anything with a yellow highlighted exclamation point in front or a red X.

Click any item mentioned in the previous paragraph and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Click Okay or yes to removing the device. Remove all items one by one that meet the criteria in the previous paragraph.

Click okay to close out of Device manager then reboot the computer.

If Device manager has no audio devices listed at all, and you are sure you actually have an audio connection on the back of your computer (sound card or integrated sound), then it is likely the sound card or circuitry has failed.

Let me know if this works or if you have additional information/questions for me.
