Receiver won't play music from an MP3 device


Use your computer speaker as the sound device or use a headphones.

If it sounds good, it could just be your cable that goes to the receiver.

( using a Y cable to connect to one of the regular audio inputs.)

or have one like these:

No sound from speakers. Everything else OK.


If headphones work then so does the amplifier. When did this problem start? From what I can find it almost sounds like it thinks you have headphones plugged in, which would disable the speakers.

Audio won't play on DVD - but it will play for CDs


Hello, you can verify that your receiver is working or not. When you are playing a dvd unplug the audio RCA plugs (red and white) from the back of the Sony dvd player. Touch the tips of each of the RCA plugs with your fingertip. You will hear a buzz sound coming from the speaker associated with the plug if the receiver is working\ i.e. touch the red RCA plug tip and the right speaker will hum...touch the white tip and the left speaker will hum or buzz. This will not hurt your system or speaker. If you do not hear the hum turn the volume to 3 or so and wet your fingertip and tap the tip of the RCA connectors. You will hear "pops" coming from the respected channel. I believe your cd\dvd is at fault. Good Luck!

I HAVE NO SOUND ON MY GATEWAY GT5660E. i HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING


Do you have the speakers plugged into the correct plugs in the sound card? Make sure speakers are not plugged into the mike jack. Do you hear any static as you remove and replug the jacks? Do the speakers have a power light?

Open Control Panel ->Sounds and click on Sounds tab. Do any sounds play? Click on the Audio tab and make sure Default device is your sound card. Click on Volume tab and then Advanced. Make sure nothing is muted.

Assuming you have Windows, check the sound card in Control Panel->System, Hardware, Device Manager. Check for correct drivers. If necessary, uninstall sound card and let Windows detect it again and install drivers.

When I try to play an audio file on my computer, it says that it seems that no sound device is installed or working on my computer. What's a sound device and how can I solve this problem ?


a sound device is a dedicated board the fits in a free PCI slot(inside the PC) and produces all of the sounds once connected to a set of speakers, hifi unit,some newer PC's come with built in sound cards

not all cards are the same quality some are standard stereo and some are full theatre quality(dolby,THX etc)
so its wise to find a solution for your needs as many aspects of newer cards may never be needed

maybe you have a sound card in your system and have not yet installed drivers if you right click on my computer(on desktop) and use the properties in the menu,you will see a new box ,goto the HARDWARE tab and then the DEVICE MANAGER tab
click the + next to sound,video,gamecontrollers

if u see any mention of an audio device right clickit and select UPDATE DRIVER

but remember a sound card must be connected to speakers or a hifi unit to produce the sound

Sound drivers in/op


The logitech speakers are plug and play and should need no drivers. Here is the web page: I suspect you need the drivers for your sound card or for integrated audio.
