Just got one of these in. Same problem. You may not have to purchase parts for this one. If you can open the back cover,(there will be two wires still connected to cover upon opening, remove these, to actually pull cover off) be careful. You will find a power supply board on the left side. Take the power supply out. (Be sure your TV has not been plugged in for about 4 hours to reduce shock.) You will need to resolder the pins on resistor RP 12. I found a bad ground. Also resolder pins on Transfomer T2 and T3( these are yellow boxes on top of board). We are are soldering under the board of coarse. Now on the right side of the power supply board, find the signal board. You will see four grounding strips taped in black. Purchase at hardware store, metal tape (used for taping duct work). Retape the four ground straps, while pressing down on these springing ground straps. Many, many times a bad ground will cause problems as described. Replace boards and cover and cover wires (as mentioned on removal). If you cannot do this, take this info to a TV tech. Let me know how this works. Thanks for asking, sincerely Matt of Martins TV Repair.

No audio device is showing on my gigabyte 7vm400m-rv motherboard. what pin connections should there be to enable this function


Hi Steve

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question. Please include information about the type, model and specification of your computer, its Audio/Sound Card and its Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.

You also don't say if you are using the on-board sound or a separate, dedicated PCI Audio/Sound Card.

Pin connections on the motherboard relate to the Front Panel Audio Connectors on the front of your Computer only.

If no audio device is showing on your Operating System's desktop, then this is an Audio Driver or Audio Device Settings problem, rather than a motherboard Front Audio Panel Header Pin Settings issue.

Start > (My) Computer > (System Properties) View System Settings > Device Manager

This will tell you if the Audio/Sound Device is installed and functioning properly and if the Audio/Sound Driver is installed properly. If a yellow question or exclamation mark appears next to the Audio/Sound Device, then there is a settings anomaly, fault, error or conflict with the device and/or its Driver.


AUDIO DEVICE SETTINGS
For your Audio/Sound Device to function properly, it must be set as the Default Device:

Start > Control Panel > (Hardware and Sound) Sounds and Audio Devices > (Manage Audio Devices) Audio > click on the preferred Default Playback device > Apply > OK > restart computer.


AUDIO/SOUND DRIVER PROBLEMS
Re-install the correct Audio/Sound Driver that relates to BOTH the device and your Operating System, then restart the computer. Install the Audio/Sound Driver either from the motherboard's Drivers and utilities CD or from here:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2323#dl

Please note that this motherboard supports only Win 95/Win 98/Win 98SE/Win ME/Win 2000/Win NT/Win Server 2003 (32 Bit)/Win Server 2003 (64 Bit)/Win XP (32 Bit)/Win XP (64 Bit) and possibly also some Linux Distros (Operating Systems). If your Operating System is not included in this list, then it is highly probable that no Audio/Sound Drivers exist for that Operating System.

If this is the case, then consider buying and installing an inexpensive, basic 5.1 or 7.1 PCI Sound Card that is pre-confirmed as being compatible with your Operating System.

For motherboard pin settings diagrams, download the manual for this motherboard from here:

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Gigabyte-GA-K8VT800-manual/id/23286ag203/t/2/

MOTHERBOARD FRONT PANEL AUDIO HEADER SETTINGS
Pin 1 Left is usually MIC IN
Pin 2 Left is usually MIC BIAS/MIC PWR/MIC 5V
Pin 3 Left is usually OUT RIGHT
Pin 4 Left is usually GROUND/GRD
Pin 5 Left is usually OUT LEFT


Pin 1 Right is usually MIC GROUND/GRD
Pin 2 Right is usually Empty/Blank
Pin 3 Right is usually RIGHT RETURN
Pin 4 Right is usually Empty/Blank
Pin 5 Right is usually LEFT RETURN

I hope this helps.

I just bought the car last week, and only the right front speaker is working. I thought the stereo was bad and replaced it with a new one only to find the same issue. Is it possible that they may have a...


Every stereo has it's intricacies, once you learn the controls then you can adjust the sound. if you have adjusted the balance to equal, then you may have a broken by door swing ground or positive, sometimes the ohms are split by a common positive connection (front and rear) contained with in the circuit of left or right. This crappy circuit could kill 3 of your 4 speakers, but then with the addition of an after market sub, who knows what kind of monkey business has been committed. Start from scratch in stead of chasing down electrical gremlins. Run new wires to all the speakers, dump the sub. Rebuild what should be there in the first place. Verify manufacturers connections and your interpretation of said, in the harness. Verify that the radio or amp can handle a sub without some goofy mono marriage of rear channels to obtain required ohms for crappy walmart sub Bazooka.

On second thought go to best buy, apply for credit card, and tell them that you want to bump down the road.

Ruud furnace won't stay lit.


Hi, welcome to Fixya. If you have spark ignition turn off the power and using sand cloth clean the rod(s) and hood of the spark ignition. If it is a Hot Surface Igniter (glow coil) look on the opposite end of the burners and you will see a rod protruding in to the flame. It's called a flame sensor. Clean it with the sanding cloth. If either of these works then you bought some time but should consider replacing the part fairly soon. Please report back to let us know your progress. Good luck.

I have a intel 478 board an don`t know how to connect power poer led


The power led wires ( there are two) go onto the two pins on the top row of the front panel coonetcor block on the board, on the 1st and 2nd pins working from left to right.

The full connector block is wired as follows:

top row: left to right >>
1st& 2nd are Power LED, the 3rd & 4th are the power switch, the 5th is empty.
The bottom row: left to right >>
1st & 2nd are hdd light, the 3rd & 4th are the reset switch, the 5th pin has no connector to the pin
Note: the power led and hdd terminals are to produce a light when the pc is on and busy.If the lights do not show, turn off the pc, turn the connectors round 180deg, reconnect and turn back on again. Job done

My A8N-SLI Premium


Hi big_cool, do you still have you're manual for the A8N-SLI board? Go to page 2-29. The ground is clearly marked in the manual. Wire colors are different from case to case. Black & white are commonly known as ground. Every case connector will have one wire color in common. The common wire will be positive +. The speaker connector uses to wires in a four pin connector. Red is positive & black is ground.
This pic (below), has been blown up to help you see. EX: The hard drive LED + sits on far left edge. Bottom row. The ground is the next pin to its right. Up on the top row. Left edge pin is the positive pin for the PLED = Power LED. Skip one pin to the right & the next pin, (Third from the left) is the ground for PLED.

Good Luck!

Power switch went bad. need to know which pins attach to which wires


Looking at the front of PC remove the left side panel. Now looking in at the board. There are two rows of pins in the lowest right hand corner of the board. Your PWRSW is your power switch. Its a two pin connector. The ground wire will be black or white. The ground faces to the right & connects at pin 4 counting from right to left. Power switch takes up pin 4&5.
All done. If tech switched the wires by mistake than flip the connector 180*.

Mother Board connection


Go to the site below. Its a manual for the 800/i65GV group. Go to page 67 and zoom in. You'll get a nice look where everything goes. Two rows of pins. Upper row and bottom row. Real close to each other. Do not place connectors up to down. Connect only left to right.
The reset connector has two pins. One will be white or black. These are - grounds. So connect it to the bottom row onto the most right two pins. Moving to your left. Skip one pin. Take the Power Switch a two pin connector. Remember Black & White is ground & ground goes to your right for both rows of Mb pins.
http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4p800/e1324_p4p800.pdf
Go to IDE_LED next. Its the last two pins towards your most left of the bottom row of pins. Move to the upper row & the power LED. Same as the bottom row keping the grounds to your right. Lastly is the speaker. Its connector holds four pins but you only use two. One in each end.

Good luck & please vote....
