    I have a similar problem with my DCR-TRV460. Our old Sony camcorder is totally busted now. So we borrowed a friends TRV460, and are trying to convert the videos to DVD using my new macbook. When I put in any of the 8mm tapes (similar to the tape found here: , expect that mine is NTSC), I can see the video, however there is absolutely no audio. 

    I have tried a couple of methods, including plugging in the camcorder to the A/V jacks on my TV, as well as plugging the camcorder into my laptop via firewire. The video is very "scratchy", with many vertical lines across the screen and there is no audio. Not even audio from the speakers on the camcorder.

    However, (here's the odd part), when we put in a tape recorded from the TRV460, we can see better quality video, as well as perfect audio. It plays the audio from the TV, as well as the internal speakers on the tapes that it recorded. However, it never plays the audio from our older tapes.

    As a diagnostic note, before the old camcorder broke we tried to play the tapes through it. Many of them would output constant noise (inaudible junk noise), but a few would output ok sound. Now in the newer camcorder, nothing at all comes out of the audio. I tried also changing the volume, as well as playing with some of the p-menu settings. I never saw one that forced audio through the firewire, or A/V jacks. I also tried using one of my cleaning tapes on both the older and newer camcorders, to no avail.

    I'm stuck. Can this camcorder play back our older tapes? It says it's backwards compatible with "older" tapes. As another note, the older camcorder is a Sony Handycam CCD-FX330 (Video-8) camcorder.

    Any suggestions are GREATLY appreciated.

My LG AX275 I cannot hear anything when i try to make a call. even my ringtones i cannot hear. i set all the volumns to high. when i turn the phone on/off it makes a little sound but thats it.

Sounds like a defective Sound chip in your device. I suggest taking the following actions:
1. Remove Battery, Attempt to Restart phone. repeat at least twice.
2. Perform a hard/factory reset. a. for most phones the go into your phones setting and look for a reset option. b. Follow the prompt to reset your phone to factory settings. c. Make sure to back up all you data
3. Contact a service representative of your carrier or take the device into your carriers store, most of the time they will recommend doing a hard reset as shown above, they will NOT replace a device without doing a factory reset on the phone.
Good Luck!

ONKYO TX-SR608 I need to have my volumne up over 40 to get any sound and around 55 to listen to my home theatre on 5.1 . Does this sound normal? Also, how can I view the volumne when using Zone 2? I...

Yes it is normal, the 608 is a THX certified receiver, so it goes by THX reference levels.

In theory once you have run the Audyssey auto-setup with the included mic the proper reference level for watching movies will be 82 if the volume number scale is set absolute or 0dB of it is set to THX relative. At this setting the volume should be the same as watching that movie at the theater. I have mine set to power-on at a level of -30dB which corresponds to level 52 on the scale you have it set to. This is a comfortable lowish level, but I turn it up to at least -10dB AKA 72 when watching movies.

There no sound is coming from my laptop speakers

First go to and download the newest version of the software. Sometimes a new program you load such as a game, media player, etc. may require a newer version of the software then what you currently have running.

This should fix the problem. If not, go into the control panel and click on Hardware and Sound in the right view panel. Click on Sound. Be sure that the playback and record tabs list Conexant as the default sound then click OK at the bottom of the window.

If this does not fix the problem check your volumn levels through the Control Panel and be sure the volumn is at adequate levels.

The next step will be to click on additional options in the left view panel. You will see several icons there. Click on Smart Audio. Click on reset to be sure the computer is using it's default settings.

You can also go to the Audio Director tab and be sure the speakers on the computer are turned on. You can set the speakers to play through the headphones or through the speakers only. Setting everything to default is usually best when trying to locate further problems.

Hope this helps everyone! Thanks!
