Question about ViewSonic Optiquest Q19wb LCD Monitor

3 Answers

The built-in speakers have stopped working. The cord is plugged in correctly. Volume levels are set correctly. My headphones work okay through the computer, but absolutely no sound (or static, etc.) via the monitor's built-in speakers.

    TY, Joe, but that was the first thing I tried. The speakers are "on" and the volume is "up," but there is still no sound.

    Thank you, but that sounds impossible for me to do, at best!
    I should have added that my external speakers aren't working now either. There's a chance they have simply died out after 9 years. However, it seems to me that if the external speakers did die, then the monitor's speakers would work, right?

My headphones work okay through the computer, but absolutely no sound (or static, etc.) via the monitor's built-in speakers. The thing is - my EXTERNAL speakers also stopped working. It's possible they simply died after 9 years; the power light isn't working on them. But then the monitor's speakers should work, right?

  • moosish977 Nov 04, 2010

    Nothing at all. Everything is 100% dead except for when I use the headphones.

  • moosish977 Nov 04, 2010

    Thank you again, but -- soldering skills? Zero. Kindly explain, though, why any connectors would break off when the monitor has never been moved or jarred in any way.

    Thank you for that info, eagle!

    Ok. That does sound like the speakers are dead. How good are your electronics soldering skills? What we are trying to do is to check whether any of the connectors broke off and need to be re-soldered.

    Cold solders tend to develop over time. Besides if pb-solder is used, overtime it can easily melt due to heat .

Hi! Please do check the monitor's built in speaker wire. The connection was surely detached and you will need a soldering gun to fix this.

Hello. Check to be sure that the speakers did not get turned off. To do this turn on the monitor and use the remote to get to the menu and then to the audio area. Once there you will see the choice for having those speakers on or off. Joe

4 thumbs up please. ty.

How does it work with tv


Normally, when headphones are plugged in, the TV speaker is automatically muted. To use the headphones, leave the TV volume at a normal level, and the speaker sound should stop when the headphones are plugged in.

Acer iconia tablet problem


Few things.
If you are talking about the built in speakers, make sure your volume is turned up. And make sure its turned up when the headphones are not plugged in. My android tablet has individual sound profiles so while I might have the sound muted when the headphones are not plugged in, if I plug them in, the volume jumps to my set level because that's where I turned the volume up to last time the headphones were plugged in. I've also had two tablets that the speakers went out completely on that to is a possibility but if you are talking about the built in speakers, check the volume levels first. You can get to them in the settings menu. Its worth noting that plugging anything into the headphone jack will "turn off" the internal speakers altogether.

If you are talking about external, plug into the jack speakers, on a tablet, you're going to need a set of powered speakers as that jack is not going to produce enough power to drive an un-amplified speaker. Make sure you are using a pair of speaks that plug into the wall such as PC speakers.

Second, if you are using powered speakers and still not getting any where, look at the jack end of your head phones and compare it to the jack end of your speakers. I know iPhones and other Apple devices have an extra connect which is why the Apple head phones all have an extra ring. My older headphones are worthless in my iPhone because they lack said extra connection. It's possible your tablet also requires the newer connection and the headphones have that while your speakers don't.

Broad answers, but I couldn't tell exactly what we were looking at based on the questions. Hope it helps, and good luck!

Sentry 2.1 surround sound speaker system. i have my rca cords plugged in to my tv, but i only get sound from my tv, nothing out of the speaker itself. it only works when i have my headphone jack into


Most televisions have a setting that controls whether the TV uses its internal speakers or sends the sound to the audio out jacks for an external amplifier or speakers.
Try going through the settings menu and follow through the audio/speaker selections and confirm that the TV is set to use external speakers.

Ok so 1 of my kidos has the RCA 20F420T tv, and i guess there is no headphone jack hole, so i went and bought adapter that plugs into the av jacks, still doesnt work can you please help!!!


Without knowing the specifics on this adapter - I can provide only provide some clues as to how this works.

Basically, the A/V jacks on a TV has a "fixed" audio output level - this means that the sound levels on the A/V jacks is NOT controlled by the volume control of the TV itself. You should be able to set the TV volume to minimum and then use the adapter's volume control to make the earphone / headphone sound louder and softer. Your TV however, may have a setting in the menu that can change the audio from "fixed" to "variable". If set to "variable", when turning the volume down for the TV's built in speakers will also turn the volume down on the A/V jacks as well. You do not want this to work like that as the sound in the headphones and the TV speakers will be same - instead of the TV speakers being off and the headphones on.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

Speakers have no sound


Please check the below mentioned things :
Verify the AC power cord is plugged into the wall outlet. Turn the VOLUME knob on the right speaker until you hear a click sound. An LED will light next to the knob when the power is ON. Turn the VOLUME knob clockwise to raise the volume. Check volume level on the computer sound card or alternate audio source device, and set at mid-level. Check plug connections on the audio source. Make sure the signal cables are inserted firmly into the correct jacks. Make sure the 3.5mm stereo cable is connected and fully inserted into the "line-out," "audio-out," or the headphone jack of the audio source. Test the speakers on another audio device. Remove the 3.5mm stereo cable from the audio source device and connect it to "line-out," "audio-out," or the headphone jack of another audio source.
And if in in case u r unable to get it working ..
Replace the speakers ..

My hp laptops volume sounds really distorted im not sure why?


The first thing to check is to ensure you have the most updated drivers for your computer and the audio section. If that is okay, then it may be that the speakers are busted. If you have a set of headphones, you can plug them in and if the sound is okay, then the problem is probably your speakers.

Tin like sound from small speakers only. No sound


switch on your speaker set in full volume unplug it from computer touch the plug , as you touch you can hear a sound ( loud hum sound) if the speaker is working. If okay then check the right jack, plug it into green color jack. you can try if your computer is okay use a headphone plug it into the jack in PC , if the computer is okay you may hear the sound.

Sounds like the cords that are going into the PC/system have static. Remove the cords from the speakers and simply put your finger around the jacks to remove static. Push the cords and the jacks back in and switch on the speakers. Then twist the volume control, turning it up loud and then low, then loud and low again. That should cure the problem as it removes static that gets built up over time. Either that or your speakers could well be damaged.
