Please just follow the below steps to fix your problem ,

1 . Open Device Manager on your computer. Click "Start" or the Windows icon, then click "Control Panel." On the Control Panel menu, select "System and Maintenance" and then click "Device Manager." Provide confirmation if prompted. Click on the "Sound, video, and game controllers" category in order to expand it. Look to see if a sound card is listed. If not, you will need to install a sound card.

2 . Look for a exclamation mark next to the name of your sound card. If there is a yellow question mark, right-click the sound card and click "Properties." Make sure the general tab is selected, and check the status of the device (in the Device status box). Go through the required steps to repair the sound card. If you do have a sound card installed and there are no errors, but you still have no audio, see Step 4.

3 . Check to make sure your speakers are plugged into the correct jack. If you have a USB device, it should plug into any USB port, but if you have a 1/8 inch cable, there is a specified jack for it on the back of the computer.

4 . Make sure that your sound card is compatible with your operating system.

Hope the above information provided by me will be helpful.

My sound is muted on my monitor

you should have a button on the monitor to pop up a menu which will let u adjust the volume, also in the lower right hand corner of your computer screen look for an icon that looks like a speaker, right click this and you can adjust volume here or unmute, it maybe hidden and you may need to click the little arrow to reveal the speaker icon. Failing this go to Start Menu, Control Panel, Audio/Sound and find it here.

Hi, right click on the little icon in the lower right hand corner. It looks like a little speaker. in there uncheck the mute volume button. If that is good check your speakers connections on the back of your computer. It should be plugged in the green plug. Good luck.

Not clear cant heaR SOUND

you may check your taskbar on the lower right hand side of your computer. There is a speaker icon situated and check if there is a a red icon which signifies mute. Then you may check your device manager ( Start > right click My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager) if the sound drivers are enabled. Then restart the pc and check if the sound drivers are working fine. Otherwise, you may try to download Realtek sound driver to optimize and have clearer sound..

Flashing red symbol on screen - not 'no cassette loaded' symbol.

I had the same problem with my ZR800. After lots of searching on the net I found out what the symbol indicates. It means that the little battery that holds the memory for the clock is weak. It's under a little cover behind the main battery compartment. I put in a new one that the flashing icon is gone. I put the battery I took out into another ZR800 and the icon started flashing on it. A simple solution that Canon should have posted in the manual.

My speakers were working fine and they just stopped but they still work on my ipod

They may be muted in the control panel. Look for the little speaker icon at the lower right hand side of your screen.

Or the sound engine may be malfunctioning. Try restarting the PC.
