Down grade then reupgrade to your wmp 11. Sound like a file is corrupted. Or you can try to add/remove program and select rapir (if there's an option)

    try installing winamp. see if you still have the problem. If you still do then it is your system and not the software it self.

When I record a vinyl record one of the stereo sound tracks sounds feint.

There are several different causes for this issue - assuming the balance for other programs works as expected. The easiest to check and fix is the "Master Volume Control" You access this on a Windows PC by right clicking the Speaker Icon in the system tray (lower right corner of the screen). Select "Open Volume Control" Next,you'll see a box with Master Voume, Wave, CD, Wave, etc. These are the playback volume controls (shown below).
We need the Recording Control. Click "Options" --> "Properties" and select "Mixer Device". A drop down box should appear offering an choice of Input or Output devices. Choose Input. "Recording" should be selected in the "Adjust volume for" box. Place a check mark in each of the input presented. Mine looks like this:


Click OK to get to the Recording Control box below.

Here, make sure the BALANCE indicator is centered between the two speaker icons and the correct input has been selected - in this case, "Line Volume". Yours may be different. If already centered, go to the next step.

If the input levels are balanced, there may be a problem with the input cable. Try replacing the audio cables and try again. If your turntable uses a USB type connection that is molded to the turntable, you won't have this option.

If still no change, try connecting to another computer. If the problem is still present, it is in the turntable, somewhere between the last cable you can change and the stylus / cartridge. A stylus or "needle" can be replaced for under $10 or so (it's been a awhile since I priced these - so don't quote me) and simply plug into the cartridge. The cartridge is more expensive, but not too bad. Most cartridges simply plug in to a jack on the tone arm. Stylus and cartridge replacement is a do it yourself job and does not need to be done professionally - unless of course you want to have it done for you.

If none of these solutions work, there is some other problem inside the turntable. Most times, one of these steps will solve the problem. I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply, thank you.

I think I may have a virus, everytime I click on my master volume, the wave volume is down to zero, every attempt I make to raise it results in it going back down immeidately!

Well if you think you have a virus chances are you do, to settle this make sure you have your windows XP or whatever OS disk ready and FORMAT the partition or even better delete the parition and format it to ensure you have a clean boot record and or hard disk as a whole once that is done test your theory chances are your 100 percent on the money!! do not and I repeat do not try to clean this and walk with a antivirus program this will not get rid of the whole virus it just quarenteens it witch is not good.

Thanks and please leave a postive feedback for your 100 percent FREE answer today!

Microphone not working

Right click on Systray Speaker icon.
"Open Volume control"
Do you see Microphone column? Be sure is NOT muted.
If you do NOT see it: Option / Properties check if sound device is the correct one (if you have multiple),
Set Playback and mark the control to show (including Mike)
You can now see and tune your Micro volume.

Same process for recording devices: set Recording etc..

Wave on master volume keeps decreasing on its own

I have nver come accross a setting that will lock the volume to a set level before, but here are a couple of possibilities that you may want to investigate for the cause.

  1. Not all programs use the master volume control, so do, but most adjust the sound by the wav output. Put the mixer onto the desktop, open things like winamp, media player etc and adjust the volume controls on those to see what is doing what.
  2. If you have a multimedia keyboard with a volume control on it, make sure when your typing it's not adjusting the volume at the same time. Again, put the mixer on the desktop out of the way and type as you would normally. It could even be just the vibrations from typing setting it off.
See how you go and post back your results
