Question about Philips Computers & Internet

The speakers on my Philips 170B monitor don't work. I did buy it sec/hand so..... Is there anything i can try 2 get them to work? I have tried playing with the settings on the monitor itself: In 'Audio options' it has 2 settings: -1. 'stand alone' - on or off & -2. 'mute' - on or off obviously i have the mute off, i have tried it with both settings on & off. Even when i plug in headphones straight into the monitor, no sound.

Hello, I have a Philips 170 B monitor and I am having problems with it. Even after my computer is switched on- I see nothing on the screen - it's blank- but the monitor's power light is on. I've tried...

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like your moitor is burned out, I would take the monitor to a Staples, Radio shack and have it tested. Monitors are just like a light bulb and do go bad or burn out.

My philips170b lcd can't produce sound.It doesn'tproduce sound on anytime. model;philips 170B

The problem could be that your motherboard requires "active Speakers" IE: speakers with their own amplifier. A lot of the newer Motherboards are now like this to cover the use of 5.1 surround sound speaker systems. If you have a set of Active speakers or can borrow a set off of a friend it should show you if this is the case or not

Phillips 170B volume adjustment bar automatically pops up

Usually for the volume bar to just pop up something would have pressed the volume button. It is possible that the volume button has gotten a malfuntion on it and this makes it to pop-up all the time. Try getting underneath the volume button cleaned. But preferably this should be done by an expert.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

No sound from headset plugged into monitor

From the manual I found, this model does NOT support ANY audio connections.
170B Product Features
- 17" color LCD monitor with excellent display performance.
- Dual input-accepts both DVI Digital and VGA Analog input.
- Advanced AUTO adjustment automatically optimizes picture quality.
- Wide viewing angle technology.
- 7.1 (181mm) small footpring with full detachable cables.
- USB Bay for upgrade to USB Hub.
- Optional protective cover to prevent LCD panel damage.
- Standard VESA mounting holes and optional tilt/swivel Wall Mount Kit.

But if yours does have these ports, I would suggest they are not for a headset, but for connection to the _PC_. I would suggest your model monitor has built in speakers, and the green port is the INPUT from the PC Speaker output. The pink goes back to the PC from the MIC which is built into the screen.

Phillips 170b monitor not working

Exactly the same problem here. Phillips 170B Monitor about two years old. Lights up for no more than 2 seconds then goes blank. Switch on/off and exactly the same thing. I suspect than the screen goes really dim rather than switching off because sometimes I can see the screen image very faintly.

Philips 170B lcd monitor

Crackling sounds are probably due to a couple of capacitors failing due to age, on the control board. (They can also "whine"). Should be easily replaceable by any experienced technician. Not a difficult job.
