Question about Samsung TXH1970 TV

2 Answers

I have a Samsung TXH1970. Is there any way to increase the maximum volume? Sometimes when I turn up the volume to maximum it still seems not loud enough. I have tried lowering the sound with the remote and raising it back up with the front controls but no help. Any ideas?

I have had your problem in the past. Some models, like yours, just don't have the guts to put out big sound.

Back in 80's I had an uncle who was older and had bad hearing and he purchased a top notch Sony and was mad that he could not hear the TV even though the neighbors could hear it fine. He called Sony so many times that they actually sent out a none Sony service tech to have a external high efficiency speaker in a separate enclosure installed. All the tech did was that he ran the internal speaker wires out to the external speaker. Sounded great and we used that very same TV and speaker for 18 years.

So short of doing the soldering work and having to open your TV to run an external speaker. I would opt to run the audio outs from the TV (If it has them) to a receiver and let it power a set of speakers. That would produce a much higher quality and more powerful sound. The age of your TV means that you are using either some type of cable, satellite or a digital over the air box and they all will have the audio outs needed to get the sound to the receiver.

The audio section of our TVs is often combined in a single integrated circuit. You can buy these with differing degrees of gain and power and some sets are built to sell at a certain price level so cost-cuts are made in areas like this. There is not normally any internal controls that can limit or raise the sound level.
What you might consider: Check front and back to see if you find the standard 3.5 millimeter 'headphone jack.'
If so, check at any department store or computer outlet for a pair of 'stereo speakers' intended for desktop computers. These are amplified by an internal amplifier in one side and the other side is plugged into the main speaker. These sets are small and cheap; often under $20 although they range upward to $100s as well. If you just want more volume, these will provide it, but the cheapest are no 'hifi' by any means.
The link below to eBay will show you a typical set of these with a 3.5mm plug and the power ratings are at least believable; many are not.

Radio volume increases to the maximum by itself

Check if TA (Traffic Announce) function is turned on - sometimes radio station is using that feature improperly, thus causing volume to go up by itself.

How do I increase the volume on my tomtom?

Tom Tom volume was once loud at max volume. Now, even saying increase volume, the volume remains very low. Even though the voice says maximum volume, the volume is unreadable at road noise.

Hi how can i increase volume on my blackberry 9000. Even on high volume setting there is no ringtone sometimes

Hi there

On your Blackberry menu, there's an icon that resembles a person's head that represents profiles. In the profiles menu, you can select the volume for the notifications you receive when messages or calls come in. Choose "Loud" to hear all notifications at an equal volume, equivalent to the maximum output possible.

Some ring tones just remain less audible than others even when they're set to maximum volume. If you've tried increasing the volume of your notifications but still can't hear the ringer sometimes, try downloading a custom ringtone from the Blackberry App Store.

When selecting a custom ringtone, choose something distinctive and hard to ignore. When previewing the tone, determine whether it seems louder or easier to hear than your existing tone. Download more than one tone and experiment throughout the day.

After you've downloaded custom ringtones, set your phone to use these ringers by going into the applicable notification profile. Select "Show Tunes" and open the media folder where you've chosen to save your downloaded tones. Select the ringer you want and click "Set as Phone Tune."

If you use a digital cable box, it could be that the volume on that isn't turned up all the way. I didn't even realize the box had volume controls until 2 years after I got it...makes a HUGE difference now
