Audio slider problem

Hello, the audio slider of my archos 605 keeps sliding down to 'mute'. whenever i try to up the volume, it just slides down again, very strange. i've cleaned the screen, nothing there, and the buttons on the side seem fine too. haven't dropped it or anything. any help/ ideas? thanks!

    I have the same problem with my 605. It does not matter if I touch the boxes or the slider it either slides down and stays or if I tap it harder it stays at the top and it looks like it is always moving a little . Irritating!

Hi at the top and bottom of the orange bar showing sound level are two little boxes if you press top box sound increases press lower box sound goes down, it might help if you use the stylus.
Hope this helps

I am having problems adjusting volume


What type of laptop HP , ASUS , COMPAQ , ACER ?..........
Up the Volume on My HP Laptop
Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.
Locate and open the icon that deals with sound.
Depending on your version of Windows, it will say either "Sounds and Audio Devices" or "Adjust System Volume."
Adjust the volume under the "Speakers" icon.
To do this, click on the slider bar and move it up on the slider.
If you need to decrease the volume, simply move the slider bar down.
Click on "OK" when finished and close the "Control Panel" window.
Click on the speaker icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen for a faster volume adjustment. Simply move the slider bar up to increase the volume and move it back down to decrease the volume.

Volume on an Acer Laptop
Acer laptops are typically sold with pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers.
These same functions can also be used in tandem with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute all sound on the laptop.
If the computer should output an unusually low volume, fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with the computer mouse. Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner to open a rectangular window with a slide control.
Click and hold the left mouse button on the slide control to drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting.
Click the "Mixer" button below the slider control to open another window with volume controls for "Speakers" and "Applications," adjusting each slide control upward to increase the volume.
Be sure the speaker icon below each control is not accidentally muted.
Click once on each speaker icon to remove the red circle with a slash through it, which will restore audio.
Click the Microsoft flag or "Start" button in the lower-left corner if the shortcut speaker icon is missing from the taskbar.
Click "Control Panel" to select "Adjust Sounds" from the Hardware and Sounds category.

Logitech Quickcam: Recording Level slider moves uncommanded


There is one more mic control you are forgetting. In the system tray you have a volume control. When you click it open you would come across another Mic control that slides up and down try using this one. I feel that if you use two of these the handling may become a little easier. Let logitech's control be constant and use this one to handle the speech contents.

No Sound on Firefox but do on IE


if your operating system is windows vista, try this..

On your Vista taskbar, double click the audio icon (while a youtube video is playing in Firefox). A window should appear with volume sliders for programs including Firefox. Just slide the one for Firefox up to increase the volume, and make sure the mute box isn't checked

Audio slider does not work


I have the same problem. After trying the adjust the volume on the screen, it went all the way down and slided back to mute everytime after I pulled it up. The volume button on the right didn't work either. I called Archos tech support on Feb 13, 2011 and they said they no longer fix this product because it's 4, 5 years old. But they would offer me a 15% discount for an upgrade. Why would I want to buy the same brand again if it's so unreliable?

Bougth in my 2004 Compaq; work fine; Last week tried using no sound no recording.


It's possible your volume has been muted. Look down where your clock is, if there's a small speaker icon, click it once. A menu will pop up with the volume controls, and if the "mute" box is checked all you have to do is uncheck it. If the slider is at the bottom of the box, slide it up until you have sound.

If there is no speaker icon, do this: Click Start. Click Control Panel. Double-click Sounds and Audio Devices. This will bring up the sound control, and you need to check the box beside "Place volume icon in the taskbar". Also, there's an option to mute the volume above that; uncheck the box if it's already checked. This will keep the speaker icon down by your clock so you can adjust the volume anytime.

If this doesn't solve your problem, check that your speakers are plugged into the right hole in the back of your PC (not in the microphone jack). There will be little pictures beside each of the jacks so you know which is which. And if your speakers themselves have volume knobs/buttons, make sure they're turned up.

If none of this is helping you, your sound card may have come loose or become defective, so you should have a professional inspect it and possibly replace it. But it's very, very likely that your volume is muted or your speakers are unplugged. You can try using headphones if you think your speakers may be defective!

Hope this helps!

How increase my mic volume


a) to hell with calling india, they are as dumb as bush is.
b) click start > accessories > entertainment > volume controls. when the volume controls open, click on file (drop down menu) then select recording, then click ok. when the recording volume controls come up. select microphone as the default recording device, and make sure the mute box is not checked. slide the volume control slider most of the way up.
c) if you are using yahoo's call-out, run the audio wizard in yahoo messenger before making call.
d) plug your microphone into other 3.5 mm jacks on computer, and use window's sound recorder to see if the computer is picking up audio through the mic.
e) make sure your microphone's mute switch is not turned on (if applicable).
