The suggestions in the manual may not help. Go to the Acer site and make sure that you have the latest audio driver. There is considerable chatter in the forums about unsatisfactory volume in that model.
The manual may be downloaded at: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/manuals/acer/0000/userguides/AS5600_3680_UG.pdf
The manual gives the following answer:
No audio is heard from the computer. Check the following: • The volume may be muted. In Windows, look at the volume control (speaker) icon on the taskbar. If it is crossed-out, click on the icon and deselect the Mute all option. • The volume level may be too low. In Windows, look at the volume control icon on the taskbar. You can also use the volume control buttons to adjust the volume. See "Hotkeys" on page 30 for more detail. • If headphones, earphones or external speakers are connected to the lineout port on the computer, the internal speakers automatically turn off.

I have to turn the avr 7200 way up to get somewhats of a loud responce, but when there is no music, i hear a hsising noise. I never used this reciever in 10 years. what could it be?


Unless permanent hearing damage and the destruction of your equipment is a goal, NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING or any purpose.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Source Selection, Mute, Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

I have the Crystal IHD 6000 and it worked superb for @ a month, now with volume to max you can just barely hear any sound no matter what source you try to play from. Any ideas as I am thinking maybe a...


I'm thinking you need to turn the volume down if you don't want to REALLY blow something up when you find the control that might be out of position. If you hear anything like the desired program right now it isn't a blown channel. Look for a control or switch that is out of place.

I turn on my subwoofer and the volume is turned down and it makes a loud buzzing sound, and its not even hooked up to the amp, just pluged in. Thank you, Joel Arntsen


You might have blown the speaker. This happens when you play things too loudly and you ruin the speaker inside. You can test this by playing something with a decent amount of bass and turned up a bit. If you hear like a "rattle" in the sound or like something isn't right in the heavy bass notes, then you definitely blew the speaker out. This isn't a tragedy. They're fixable if you bring them to a place that repairs speakers. But I would definitely test it first by hooking it up and playing a loud song with a lot of bass. Hope that helps a little! Please rate my solution!

Very little volume, not very loud at highest


On the TV-use your finger to adjust the volume level, about midway, then use the remote to shut off the tv, then turn on tv with remote. Volume level should be better! If still not loud enough...using your finger on the tv...turn up volume & repeat remote steps.

Can you hook something up to the aquos to get louder volume?


ARE YOU HOOKED UP TO A CABLE BOX? IF SO THERE IS A VOLUME ADJUSTMENT ON THE CABLE BOX TO HELP OUT. IF NOT I'M AFRAID YOUR ONLY SOLUTION IS TO HOOK UP A SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM.
