Zizzle "Hooked on Phonics" sound

    Your above instructions don't appear to apply to the Zizzle Hooked on Phonics Electronic Learning device for children which I was trying to describe in my initial inquiry. Your solutions sound like those for a product or device controlled by or through a Microsoft software operating system??? Can you refer my inquiry to the proper expert if other than yourself? Thanks for helping me and have a blessed day! Charley Knight

Hi Charley,

Based on your concern, you already reset the device by pressing the reset button on the back but to no avail. Resetting a device will bring back the factory state like when you first got the unit. I suspected that this is a hardware failure. If the device is still in warranty, I recommend to contact the manufacturer and let them set a free repair or replacement. You can email Zizzle via and let them know about your issue.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi cknight187,

You may try the troubleshooting below that can be done to get the sound to work again with the Zizzle "Hooke on Phonics".

1. Use the steps below to change the sound card to something other than the Game Compatible setting.

  • Click on Start, Settings, and Control Panel
  • Double click on Multimedia (or Sounds and Multimedia in Windows Me, or Sounds and Audio Devices in XP)
  • Click the Audio tab.
  • Under the Playback section, look for the Preferred Device.
  • Under Preferred Device, click on the arrow pointing down and select a device other than Game Compatible..
  • Click on the Apply button, then the Ok button.
  • Close the Control Panel.

2. If that does not correct the issue, you can bypass Microsoft DirectSound, and play audio directly through your sound card.

  • Click Start, and then Run.
  • Type DxDiag and click OK
  • Click the Sound tab
  • Under DirectX features, you will see the Hardware Sound Acceleration Level.
  • Move the slider bar to the left or right until it says Basic acceleration and click Exit.

3. If you are still experiencing problems, check the following:

- Check that your speakers are turned on and connected to your computer.
- You can verify that your sound system is working by playing any audio file.
- Make sure you've closed any other programs that use audio, such as RealAudio, WinAmp, or Napster.
- If the audio still doesn't work properly, update the drivers for your audio card from the manufacturer's Web site.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Projection TV no picture flashing horiz arcs across top of screen sound okay

You will need convergence work to this unit. Not cheap.(Not recommended for DIY unless already experienced in this type work). Might contact a local servicer experienced with Toshiba & see if they can give you a quote over the phone. Be sure you are sitting.
This is probably a good time to consider entering the 21st century & look at LCD or LED flat screens.

I have a sharp aquos LC-C3234U. It had the blinking green light problem. I followed the first couple of steps ((vol up, chl down) and it now comes on with a solid green light. I have sound, but no

Search on eBay for RUNTKA448WJQZ and buy one.

I mean for $35 delivered it isn't much of an investment.

Don't forget to rate me if it works (and forget me if it doesn't; but it will).

Laptop broken screen... plugged in Dell monitor,still doesnt work

You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

Change input device to some other which you know works for sure. If problem persists, try changing the channel. If you notice same problem, this may need attention by a qualified service technician.

My screen in in dark negative and cant see whats on

Hello Mandy,
A dim screen or one that is black or suddenly blacks out, it might just be a power or battery issue. Do some troubleshooting. Check the power connection and see if its loose, then unplug it and take out the battery pack, then press the ON button for 20 seconds or so. Then put the battery back in. If that doesn`t work, you could have a burned out visual back light or a loose inverter. If the problem doesn`t go away, don`t open the LCD monitor and try to fix it yourself as that will void the warranty. Sorry for the late reply.
