So you are trying to play the audio from your cd's through the HDMI with the TV off? For that the TV has to be on. You should be able to hook up an alternate audio out from your blue ray player to your amp. This way you can listen to the audio with the TV off. So all you really need is one set of audio cables.
Hope that helps.
Thanks,
Lee

    What is the model of your amplifier? I will need to know exactly what sources you have going to what. You have the blue ray player going to what? and what kind of cable are you using on the blue ray player? Is it going HDMI straight to the TV? If so you will have to use a different audio connection on the blue ray player to the amplifier. That is your best option.
    Let me know and enjoy.
    Thanks,
    Lee

    What is the exact model of your "amplifier" also I need to know what inputs and outputs you are using on your tv, blue ray player, and "amplifier".
    Once I get all the information I know we can get it working.
    Thanks,

    Are you using HDMI from the blue ray to the TV and then to your amplifier?
    Thanks,

If the audio is going to the tv / speakers with hdmi, then no the screen has to be turned off.

Unless you setup a external sound system.

Accidently put 2nd cd in factory dvd player and now cds will not release or play. Is it possible to remove and still utilize player?


Hi, You will have to remove the cover to access the CDs. Unplug it before you do anything.
On some players there is a small hole to release the door. By useing a small wooden dowel you can unlock the door. Good luck.

I have a garmin nuvi 360. It has an audio problem. It usually doesn't play any audio unless I plug in headphones or an audio cable. And when I plug in the headphones it only plays through one ear. But if I...


Please see this link:

Your headphone jack connections have broken inside, cutting off the speaker and one side od the audio, left or right. The jack needs to be replaced or resoldered.

Need to know how to charge garmin nuvi 255w using home wall charger.

  1. Use the provided vehicle power cable that came with your GPS unit. The unit will charge while powered on and using the device as well as when the GPS unit is powered off and plugged into a running vehicle. About 3 hrs for a full charge. If the unit will not charge in the vehicle, check the fuse in the power cable for the unit and the power outlet in the vehicle.
  2. Use an AC power adaptor. Some units come with this power cable to plug the GPS unit into a wall outlet allowing the GPS unit to take a charge. For units that do not come with this cable, one can be purchased from Garmin's online store.
  3. For most units, the final way of charging the battery is to plug the GPS into a powered on computer with a USB cable2. This method of charging will be a trickle charge and it may take longer (like a full day) than the other two options, however it will still charge the battery. A USB cable is provided with a few GPS models. For those that don't come with this cable, one can either be ordered from the online store or you can use a standard USB to mini-USB cable that fits the unit and plugs into your computer.
1 - Please note that temperature can play an effect on the charging of a device. If the battery registers a temperature of 0°C and below or 45°C and above (32°F and 113°F respectively) then it will not charge. When connected to external power it will only be operating off of external power.
2 - The Quest® and Quest® 2 will not charge using a USB cable.

I cannot get audio at all for my garmin zumo 550. all it says onscrean is to connect zumo to holder which i have done or to connect to bluetooth headset.i think i may have a problem with my power lead but...


The 550 relies on the car base for audio as it has no speaker. If the base is not powered up it will not amplify the sound out of the GPS unit, Check the in-line fuse on the power cord, it is usually located in the tip of the cigarette lighter adapter. twist off the tip and this should expose a fuse.
HAve you tried connecting to it with a bluetooth headset, this should work regardless of whether or not it is on the base.

Hope this is of some help.

AUDIO/SOUND


The internal audio amplifier is defective. If you don't want to send it back to garmin and pay their flat rate of $175.00 for repair (I didn't ) then by all means do so. If not then go to Radio Shack and purchase a battery operated amplified speaker. It is small and plugs easily into the side of your unit. Best of all it's only ($14.95) It works great because it bypasses the internal speaker and the sound id just as good if not better then the garmin speaker- You can control the volume by using the settings on your unit. The other alternitive is to purchase an FM transmitter. By pluging this into the unit it will transmit the voice into your car radio. the only problem is that you havwe to have it tunned to one station and won't be able to listen to your radio. Its sad that garmin does not repair thes units for a better price especially when they know there is problems with these speakers. I foe one will never buy another GArmin product and i tell everyone i know about this and advise them the same. Hopes this helps !!!

HI Heather,

Make sure you don't have the sound muted. Have you tried plugging in a set of headphones into the headphone jack? If you can hear sound with the headphones, most likely, the internal speakers have failed. If you still can't hear any sound, the audio output stage on the motherboard has failed. In either case, you will need to send the unit back for repair. Be sure to have your serial number handy. Register it online https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/marketing/register.htm
if you haven't already done so.

More Info: If you can hear sound through the speakers and don't want to send the unit back for repair, you can buy a FM transmitter at Best Buy - the kind that will allow you to play a portable CD player through your car stereo. Just plug the transmitter's audio input cable into your GPS headphone jack, power the transmitter with your car lighter jack, set the transmitter frequency to a unsued FM channel and tune your car stereo to tha same channel. You should hear your GPS through your FM stereo.

Good Luck,
- Jim
