Nokia Monitor Multigraph 447Za - Speaker/Microphone Volume control not working
I have a problem with my monitors volume controls for the built in speakers and the microphone volume. Neither seem to work turning the respective volume down using the soft rubber keys on the front of the monitor ?
Is there soem form of OSD or reset facility as the problem is really annoying !?
Please provide any useful advice
Re: Nokia Monitor Multigraph 447Za - Speaker/Microphone...
The electrical contact surfaces under the rubber buttons lose contact over time. I don't know if it's corrosion or some kind of build up. I fixed mine by disassembling the monitor, removing the button panel and cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser. It works great now. The monitor is a real bear to take apart though. There are four hidden spring tabs on the sides of the bezel that are impossible to see. I groped with a very thin screwdriver blade and finally got them to release, but not without chipping some of the plastic.

Not all sound cards support Microphone Boost. The simplest way to find out in Windows XP is to open the Windows Volume Control. If a speaker icon is displayed at the lower right hand corner of the Windows Desktop double-click it. If no speaker icon is displayed then click the Windows Start button and select "Run..." In the Open box enter sndvol32.exe and click the OK button. This will open the Windows Volume Control. Select "Advanced Controls" from the Windows Volume Control's Options menu. You should see an "Advanced" button near the lower right hand corner of the Windows Volume Control screen. Click the Advanced button. If the "Advanced Controls for Microphone" screen shows a check box for "Microphone Boost" then check that box and click Close. Now try making a test recording and see if it works.
Now, If you do not find this option, I found an amazing video that might just do the trick. Click on the link and view how to see the hidden "Mickey" :). Mic Boost.
The spec say it has a built-in microphone. If you are using Windows, open the sound controller and check that the slider on the microphone is turned at least half-way up. When you open the sound controller (speaker in the systray next to clock), the microphone is normally muted. To test, unmute and tap the microphone or speak into it. Make sure you have the volume turned up on the speakers too.

If you have a built-in microphone, turn the mic volume down (right click the speaker icon on the bottom right of the taskbar, click "open volume control" then turn down the mic volume or mute it. hope this helps.
1)Double click on the speaker icon in the system tray to bring up windows volume control. 2)Go to options, then properties. 3)Select Microphone from the "Show the following controls at the bottom" then click OK 4)From Volume Control window untick "mute" for the microphone
Go to your speaker icon in your task bar on right hand side and right click then on volume control.
Go to file then select options/properties and then scroll down to the microphone on the show volume controls box and tick it.
The microphone volume slider should now show and make sure the mute is unticked.
