Sound Hello! I have an quite unusual Problem with my videorecorder. I got it from a friend today. When I first tested it at home, it worked perfectly. Later I set the date and the time. Since then I have no sound. But when I turn on te menu, the sound is there. I don't know why because I really just changed the Date and time. Does someone here know what I can do? Help is highly apreciated!!

What does "having no sound" mean?
- no sound on playing a known good tape?
- no sound after recording?
- no sound when recording if you plug in headphones or into a monitor?

No sound from subwoofer lg ht554 home cinema.

Did you check all connections? All audio settings? If yes and it didn't help I think better will be call to specialist in this field. I recently bought new home cinema Ugee 1910B and it works perfect. Quality of video and sound is great.

Hello, I have a Marantz PM7200 and for several months now I've been having a the following problem. Every now and then the sound crackles or disappears on the left, right or both speakers. I'm quite sure...

Try wiggling the speaker cables where they connect into the PM7200. If it crackles get the shop to check for 'dry joints' in the unit. It is quite normal for things to look ok and to work perfectly in the workshop, but that is not a good test. Dry joints are quite difficult to spot and any soldered joint 'looks' ok, but if the soldering temperature is a bit off, usually on the low side where the solder is only just about hot enough to melt, it will result in a what we call 'dry joint'. It is not unfrequent to get this problem with production line processes as there are many factors on the assembly line that can effect the tip of the soldering unit. It can be as simple as someone getting up out of a seat and changing the air flow that then causes the soldering tip to cool slightly. We are taking 'parts' of a degree temperature changes. The shop should have equipment to test the conductivity of soldered joints. A light hand during testing is a prerequisite!

My HTS3400 DVD Home Theater stopped producing sound. It was working perfectly before and next time I used it, whithout having disconected any cable now I get a perfect image but no sound. The remote...

fechegaray,

if you do a search on HTS3450 (same unit) you will find a thread with similar problems. My problem was similar and today I fixed it by changing 2 capacitors in the unit.

No sound coming from my laptop aspire 5610...

You didn't mention which OS you're using but here is the XP driver for your machine.

It's a Realtek driver so you should be able to download a generic driver from the Realtek site which should work also. Choose either the standard Realtek AC97 or the AC97 HD, one of them should work.

HTS9800 Wireless receiver not working

I have just bought one of these today and have had the exact same problem. No rear sound and no blue light on the receiver box.

Solution:
What philips don't tell you in the manual and on the support site is that the receiver box has a switch hidden under a white sticker; next to the left of the right speaker connection. The switch has 3 positions which can be selected. I had tried each switch position and power cycled the subwoofer each time until eventually i got a blue light on the receiver box.

You may also need to select the correct channel on the control box by pressing the "sound" button for 5 seconds on the remote control.



It took me quite a while to try the different combinations until it finally worked. I can't imagine that Philips would have sent the system out without testing the wireless partnership first, so I am guessing my wireless network could have had something to do with it. (forever the optimist).

I did expect the subwoofer standby light to have gone off or changed colour once operational, but this just seems to stay on no matter what state it is in.
