Question about Sony NW-A1000 MP3 Player

2 Answers

SOund Interferance My 6gb version of the NWA 1000 is really crackly sounding through the headphones, and extra inteferance occurs if you change the volume or press the hold button? I have tried other headphones so it is not them. Could it be the connection where the headphone jack goes? or more likely something more terminal? Could the files just be poor quality etc? i transferred them via the enclosed copy of Connect. CHeers James

I have a similar problem. If you put a bit of pressure on the top right corner of the mp3 player (i.e.: clamp it between a couple of your fingers) the sound becomes fine again. However, in my case, the problem eventually became worse, up to the point where I couldn't hear anything at all. I think you'll need to get it serviced to fix the problem. I'm sorry I can't help more than this. Adam

What are the best studio monitor headphones?

It depends on whether you need a closed back or an open back headphone. I think the best sounding studio monitor is the new Sennheiser HD800S. It is an improved version of the venerable HD800. It is very accurate and detailed for monitoring and at the same time very enjoyable for music due to its musicality, depth of imaging, and expansive sound stage.

No sound even with headphones

I would suspect that a lateral force has been applied to the headphone jack of your tablet. This occurs when you accidentally pull the headphone plug out at an angle instead of straight in line with the jack.
You might be able to find a repair shop to fix this. It might cost as much as the tablet. If under warranty you could try to get it replaced but Fujitsu is terrible in this department.
It is ALWAYS wise to get an extended warranty for consumer electronics. People tend to not do thi9s because they shop primarily by price and the extra warranty drives the cost up to high at the time of purchase. Then comes this kind of problem and you wonder why you didn't spend the extra 20 bucks.

Shows that speakers are not plugged in and there is no sound. What is the problem?

You may be able to access the ability to change audio settings through the control panel. There are choices that allow for choosing externally attached speakers. If the system does not know to send the audio signals to those speakers, then no sound will come out.

hii there, pls try to use another headphone on your mixer, if you get the same problem. It means your headphone have no problem. Problem is with the the jack of your mixture. Open your mixture and check the jack properly attached internal.

Speakers sound as if have background interferance

Hi Naomi. I am not sure of your model, but you probably have a build in mic. If so, open your sound properties from your task bar, Click on File - Advanced Properties. You should now see a "Mic" volume control. Mute this control and see if this stops the sound.

If this does not work, locate the manufacturer of your sound card and visit their website to download newer drivers, if available. If this also does not work, you will need to return the product to the retailer to reinstall a clean version of windows. Many times files become easily corrupt in the installation of audio codecs, drivers, etc. Hope this helps.
