SOURCE: Power light is green but screen is black

Do you get anything at all on the screen--like white writing at startup?
Even if your video drivers have become corrupt, they are not used until Windows actually starts.
It very well could be the flourescent backlight has gone bad. Can you adjust the brightness/contrast at all to see anything?
If those controls do nothing for you, then you're looking to get a new monitor.
Your monitor does have a sort of power supply for the backlight and that could be bad, but if you're not into taking it apart, then you are far better off buying a new monitor.

I have no sound on my vizio tv


Make sure the mute button isn't on. Also sets give you the option to turn off your "on board" speakers. If applicable, make sure this option isn't turned on. Identify if this affects all inputs, and depending on your setup, check you source. Make sure it is in good working order and that your connections are correct. Outside of this, sounds like your set will need to be serviced.

I don't have sound on my computer yet i have installed sound drivers and they are working well?


check in your control panel and go to systems.
Then go to hardware and under that go to Device Manager
In there see if there are any exclamation marks in your sound hardware,
conflicts and such.
If there are none then go to Sound Controls in Audio Devices and make sure the audio isn't muted in the windows program
Use this to do an audio test of your speakers.
If that isn't working but it should be check your wires to see if there is a break or if it is plugged into the the green colored jack for external speakers.

My computer is a SyncMasterP2570HD i cant get any sound to come out but it is detecting sound how do i fix it


The Samsung SyncMaster P2570hd is a monitor with speakers; it isn't the computer itself. I'll assume that you are dealing with a computer connected to the monitor and not a set-top box. Make sure that Mute is not enabled on the computer. There should be an icon on the lower right hand side of a Windows desktop. If the mute is enabled, it will have a red circle with a diagonal line through it. Left click on the icon to remove the mute (change the volume or click on the mute icon). Test the monitor's speakers by connecting it to another device with known good audio output.

Next how are you connecting the monitor to the computer (VGA, DVI or HDMI)? If you are using VGA or DVI (including DVI to HDMI), you need to connect an audio patch cable (3.5 mm) between the speaker (green port on the back of a sound card) or headphone jack of the computer and the audio input jack of the monitor. The audio input jack is between the DVI and VGA ports. You can test the output of the speaker jack on the computer with regular computer speakers. Plug in the power cord (or USB cable) for powered speakers. If the free-standing speakers work, check the volume setting on the monitor with the +/- buttons to the right of the menu button. Do not press menu first, though. If that doesn't solve the problem, continue using the separate speakers. (Unless the monitor is still under warranty, it usually isn't worth taking apart a monitor to replace the speakers. You may be able find replacement parts online.)

If you are using an HDMI cable, check the output audio setting to see if the HDMI audio is available. For Windows, click on Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound (Windows 7). Then click on Manage Audio Devices under Sound. In the Playback tab, check what available audio devices you have. Make the HDMI the default device by right-clicking on it and selecting Make this the default device. (Other versions of Windows will a slightly different route to this panel.) You may need to restart the computer to get the audio signal on the HDMI cable after setting this. Note: not all video cards/computers support HDMI audio. If you don't see HDMI listed in the Playback devices, connect an audio patch cable as with a VGA or DVI cable, described above. Use stand-alone speakers if the monitor's speakers are bad.

I hope this helps.

(I have had the speakers fail in monitors; <$30 separate speakers are an adequate replacement for those built into a flat panel monitor.)

PC SWITCHS ON BUT NO PICTURE


1. Check to make sure your monitor is on! Some monitors have more than one power button or switch - check to make sure they're all switched on.Check for disconnected monitor power cable connections. Your monitor might be working fine and your only problem may be a loose or unplugged monitor power cable.Note: A disconnected monitor power cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is completely off.Check for disconnected monitor data cable connections. Again, your monitor might be turning on without a problem but no information can get to it because the cable that connects your monitor to your computer is disconnected or loose.Note: A disconnected monitor data cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is on but is amber or yellow instead of green.Turn the monitor's brightness and contrast settings completely up. Your monitor might be showing information but you just can't see it because these display settings are too dark.Note: Most monitors today have a single onscreen interface for all settings, including brightness and contrast. If it turns out that your monitor isn't working at all then you'll likely not have access to this interface. An older monitor might have manual knobs for adjusting these settings.Test that your computer is working correctly by connecting a different monitor that you are certain is working properly to your PC. Your monitor may be working fine but your computer might not be sending information to it.If the new monitor you connected does not show anything either, proceed to Step 6.If the new monitor you connected does show information from your computer, proceed to Step 7.Important: When testing with the new monitor, make sure you use the data cable that came with it and not the one from your original monitor.Determine why your computer isn't sending information to your monitor. Since neither monitor works, you now know that the computer is not sending information to the monitor. In other words, you've proven that your computer is the reason that nothing shows up on your monitor.Chances are your original monitor is working fine.Test your original monitor with a monitor data cable that you know is working. It's possible that the monitor itself is working properly but it can't receive information from the computer because the cable that connects the monitor to the PC is no longer working.Note: If possible, test using the data cable from the monitor that you successfully tested with in Step 5. If not, purchase a replacement monitor data cable to test with.Note: The data cable on some older monitors are permanently connected to the monitor and are not replaceable. In these cases, you'll have to skip this step and proceed to Step 8 Replace the monitor.

I have no sound out of the front speakers. Mute button is off, speakers work fine. Only have sound (very little) if volume is turned way up.


NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's
full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume
it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Source Selection, Mute, Tape
Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead'
spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate
every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape
Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

Hi why is there no sound from my speakers


In Control panel, check you have the sound enabled by testing one of the windows sound schemes, even if you can't hear anything you will see it is enabled.

Check the volume icon on your desktop taskbar is not in mute mode

Finally, check the wire from the monitor speakers is plugged into the correct port in your sound card / chip. (Usually green)
