    Original question:"I would like to know if there is a way to reduce the minimum sound volume to less than the current factory setting?"
    Follow up: Is it possible to add an "inline volume control" (between reciever and cable jack) to my ear buds?

    I was surprised that I ended up finding the "best" solution through my own research and advise from my local Radio Shack on Thursday (12/30/10). Instead of paying $50+ on a set of volume controling headsets (and no options on earbuds) they provided me a very simple alternative ... an 8" listening device extension cord that included an "inline" volume control all for the most reasonable "fix" of $8.99.

    Thus, my thanks has to go to Radio Shack.

The sound is only controlable with the remote or the volume controls on the unit, or if your running it through the car speakers you can adjust the radio volume. There are no other volume controls that are not factory set. You can contact their support team and maybe you have a defective unit if you aren't able to reduce the volume. If using headphone you need the ones with a seperate volume control to reduce the volume below factory settings.

    I Am glad your problem is fixed, I wouldn't pay $50.00 for head phones either, A got mine for around $15.00. I had an old pair of radio shack headphones with the inline volume control that I had paid around $30.00 before. I only wish they would have had that inline volume control then! I appreciate your interest in Fix Ya and I have to thank you for letting me know that they have this at Radio shack. I can't possibly keep up with every item in every store.

Hi, it is not possible to reduce the sound volume less than the original factory settings except you want to change the whole control board of the receiver where the sound i.c is located and that will be as good as getting a brand new receiver...

    Hi, a in-line volume control on a headphone cable won't make the headphones any louder. It will only control the volume. If you want the headphones to be louder you could get a headphone amp (they usually have there own volume control) and use that more efficiently.

    I use a audio device with a higher output, so I only use a In-line volume control to lower the volume into the recording device.

How can I sharpen my picture and correct the volume as it sounds like it is in a tin can?

Turn off all the picture processing settings. They just add noise anyway. Set noise reduction to minimum/off. Switch off Overscan. Reduce the sharpness control until any trace bright edges to dark objects over a light background is reduced to not visible. The picture is the sharpest and most detailed it will ever be when it first comes in to the set. Getting rid of all the extra processing will allow you to see the real detail of the picture.

Sound quality is most likely down to a limitation of the thin speakers in modern flat screen TVs. If the TV has bess and treble controls, try reducing the treble and increasing the bass. In the end though, thin speakers = thin sound. There's a lot of folk buying soundbars to go with their new TVs. That might have to be your solution too.

Kenwood Receiver VR 806 turning off

Sounds like the music amplifier is different to the tuner audio amp. The music amplifier is now looking at an unbalanced impedance which is less than it should be. Therefore the output chip of the music amp has more current through it than it wants so it gets hot and shuts down.Put a four ohm wirewound resistor ( from Radio Shack ) in series with each surround speaker to reduce the current flow through the amplifier output.

Compaq Presario v2000 notebook reduced battery life

you may try:
1) check the battery alarm at windows power managment, to set 5-10% alarm level.
2) discharge the battery to the empty then charge longer time, you need monitoring how long it charged (see charge lights change), need to change new one if charging time much less then before(less then 10-20 minutes)..
3) plug-in AC adapter monitoring charging current,
this step you need a current meter to make a series connection in the circuite, the battery is over life cycle if the current less then 500mA.

Sound in computer is raspy

Distortion usually happens when a sound is amplified too much. The key to solving it is finding out where the amplification is happening.

If you've got your "wave" volume at max, and your "main" volume at minimum (or vice versa), you might experience distortion. Try reducing the higher one, and raising the lower one.

Subwoofer volume and sound

i had the same problem when i tried to adjust speaker output levels, distance and equalizer manually without using audessy i reset everything to factory setting (0s)..and then ran 
audessy setup..reduce volume on your subwoofer to slightly above minimum(behind the subwoofer) before running the setup..once audessy setup is completed successfully..i started changing setup
manually..changed speaker config for front speaker to small (it is set as large by audessy setup), this should automatically adjust center and other speaker configuration (if not make sure to set them to small as well), then set the cross over frequency to 120..increase the volume on your subwoofer and now you should hear it fire..if this does not help..try playing some rock music with all channel streo mode..if your subwoofer does not fire even for this..then take the system back for exchange..

Surround sound

adding more speakers in parallel reduces the impedance, causing the amp to work harder. if you reduce the impedance to much and turn the volume up its a bit like making a short across the output, and has probably damaged the output stage. if you are really lucky it may be fused and simple replacement will fix the issue. if not it could be a costly repair. always observe the minimum impedance rating on your amp and match the speakers to it, never less than it
