You might have to uninstall then reinstall either the driver or the sound devices
control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make the necessary adjustments there or control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager,sound,could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers or right click select properties to either troubleshoot,uninstall,rollback driver
hope this helps

If you hear something faint this would not be a fuse issue.

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the
amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2
volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control
or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or
'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate
every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like
Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

I have a set of SUN-115H speakers that has a volume problem. When testing with DXDIAG, you can hear the sound but it is very faint even with the volume knob turned to full. Any ideas? ? ?


Is the power to the speakers correct? Since these are computer speakers,have you checked that the volume on the computer is turned up all the way? Have you tried the speakers on another computer or portable radio of something?

I have lost all sound on my tv. You can hear snapping or popping but the sound is real faint on highest setting.


Hello,

I am sorry to hear about your misfortune. Unless you changed some sound settings right before that happened then the likely cause is that your tv's internal speakers have blown. Which will cause that really faint sound even when the volume is all the way up.

If your TV has an audio out connection you can try hooking it up to surround sound or a receiver with some speakers. You may be able to use your tv this way and get sound.

Otherwise you will have to make use of your warranty if the TV is still covered. If not then there is nothing more I can suggest. Repair cost might be more than hooking it up to an external sound system.

Post back if you have any further questions or comments.Thank you for choosing Fixya.

Suddenly, I can only hear the sound faintly, even though it's turned up full volume on my Yamaha HTR 5560. What happened? I've played around everywhere with the converter now. Restore defaults anywhere?...


Have you checked the MUTE function?

NEVER turn the volume up more than half-way for any sound problem. Otherwise, if you suddenly find the switch that's out of position you could blow your speakers.

What converter?

What channels, what source(s)?

Very faint sound on everything, including system sounds. when playing a cd, can hear music, but not lead vocals except faintly. are the speakers shot? Everything was okay yesterday, and no settings have...


First of all, if you have volume controls on the keyboard, please make sure you turn the volume up from that location.

Next, locate the Speaker icon next to the time in the lower right corner of the screen. Double or single Click on that and make sure the volume slide bar is all the way to the top. If you don't have a speaker icon, roll over these icons slowly and an info bubble will pop up. Look for one that involves audio. If you right click on the icon, you may be able to select volume mixer or something similar, there you will find multiple volume settings, turn all up.

Finally, if you are having this problem when using a media player (Windows Media Player, VLC, Quicktime, etc), there will be a separate volume control within the player itself. They are usually a slide bar underneath the video or graphics display. Turn this up also.

Please note that if you are using a laptop, Laptop speakers are notoriously of poorer quality and lack the wattage of desktop speakers. In turn, it may not be a problem with your laptop2_bing.gif. You may need to look into purchasing an inexpensive set of external speakers.

Sound coming from speakers is very quite. must


check your manual for a quiet mode, or reset factory defaults. it might be stuck in "attenuator" mode, where sound is muffled, in case you're answering a phone.
Good luck!

Faint sound from the speakers


Most speakers are mains powered (either plugged directly into a wall socket, or maybe using a 12volt adaptor), and inside the speakers will use a small amplifier circuit. These circuits are prone to often going faulty and may lose one speaker or both, so instead the speaker will then only play the sound as it gets it from the PC (or hifi etc.).

Audio to speakers is not sent in a 'loud' form, but is instead just a very high quality weak signal that must be amplified to be heard. Typically a PC sound output may be just .5 to 1.5 volts only, just enough to work a set of headphones but nothing much more.

I suggest checking your speakers on another item, such as a CD player or hifi that definatly works, and if its the same, its most likely the 'amp' gone faulty. It's not really worth fixing as they usually only break in cheaper types of speakers - so its as easy to just buy another set.

If they work OK on other devices, maybe check these things:

Is the volume up on the computer ? Check on the volume icon on the taskbar, and also if its a laptop check its not got a volume dial that has been accidentaly turned down/off.

Test the computer with other speakers, to just narrow down the fault.

Some PC's have several output sockets at the rear (or front), so make sure you have it plugged in to the correct socket - even if you have used it before, some PC's software can actually change what comes from each socket, so your MIC socket could now have become your SPEAKER socket, or other settings may have been changed by other software.

Check your operating system is not using a 4 speaker setup instead, and sending the sound to non-existent rear speakers/woofers/tweaters. My own PC has 8 outputs, so I make sure nothing alters my settings or i'd never hear it again ;)

Its also possible for the PC audio chip to go faulty, but that is very very rare. If nothing else works & the speakers are known working ones, you may have to try a new sound card.

Remember that plugging the standard 3.5mm stereo jack plug into the wrong sound card socket will not cause harm, you may just hear a loud 'THUMP' or click as the power goes across.

One last thing is, try reinstalling your audio drivers. PC operating systems can lose driver functions and do any possible thing you can imagine. It may be as simple as a reinstall to wake up the audio card again.

Good luck.
