Move your mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen until it turns into a double sided arrow. Left click and move it up to expose the toolbar.

When i first turn on tv sound is fine . then it will drop down in volume badly .


Many newer types of TVs have what's called "Volume Leveling", which means the TV automatically lowers the volume if a sudden increase in the broadcast signal volume is detected. Check to see If "Volume Leveling" is present on your TV and currently turned "on". Refer to your owners manual for this. It should be in the Audio section in the menu on your TV. Turn the "Volume Leveling" to the "off" position to disable "Volume Leveling".

I am not able to control the recording level on lower right screen. When I click on it nothing happens.


Maybe your laptop has buttons that control the level also, if so press them.

Most laptops have keystrokes that control the volume level. Normally you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower right portion of your screen and the corresponding key that takes the volume up. Normally the correct key will show the icon of a megaphone with the )))) volume signal.

More importantly make sure you have the Recording checked in the Audio Sound Properties.

Buttkicker Gamer 2 Amplifier won't turn on, light stays orange when it should be green. used to be a struggle sometimes to get it to turn green by using the remote, now it just stays orange all the...


Your Gamer 2 Amp turns on whenever an audio signal is present on the input. The amp can have trouble tuning on if the output of the source (computer sound card, etc.) has been turned down. This can happen easily if you use amplified speakers - if you turn the sound card's volume control down - and then increase the volume at the amplified speaker - the resulting sound is the same; even though the signal has been lowered. The problem is that the output from the sound card isn't sufficient to turn on the Gamer 2 Amp.

Try turning down the external speaker volume, then bump up the sound card volume. You'll probably need to adjust the other inputs individually (Wave, Mic, CD, etc) so that none is too loud or soft. Once the input values have been set, gradually increase the output of the sound card in the control panel application etc. while decreasing the volume on the amplified speaker to maintain a comfortable level. Eventually, you'll find the correct volume level on the sound card output that will wake up the Gamer 2 Amp.

If you're still having trouble, review the manual, here. I hope this helps & good luck!

Can't turn volume down!


Go into your sound devices from the control panel. You should be able to raise & lower the volume from there as well as putting the volume icon back into your system tray. Hope this helps.
