22" HDTV Gateway monitor volume control

Just bought this awesome monitor. It's also a stand-alone HDTV, so we hooked it up as a TV and started watching it. It has internal speakers, but no volume control, even on the sidebar menu, and it's very loud, so unless everyone in the house is either awake or passed out, I can't watch it. There is an extra item I can order for $30 that will add a control to it, but I can't believe they would sell a TV with no volume control. I will also be hooking it up to a computer. Tech support told me this monitor has no speakers in it, but I'm telling you it does and it's very loud. Anyone know what to do? It's a 2275 model, brand new as of 7-7-07. Three people have turned it upside down and all around and there is NO volume control, only USB ports and cable/wire hookups. The touch menu on the sidebar does not have a volume choice.

I have the same monitor. There is a way to turn down the volume for the internal speakers. Go to Main menu on the monitor, Advance settings, then into Audio Feed Back. Then adjust the volume from there.

Well that is weird isn't it? As far as hooking to the PC is concerned volume is easy- control it from the PC. In a normal audio set up - Hi-Fr/Radio/TV there are in fact two amplifiers. One is the preamp to imports all the bass /treble and all that and volume. the out put amp - plain vanilla flat power I suggest that this is the case with this screen it has no pre amp it relies on an external Audio input .

No speaker hook up on new moniter

If your old monitor was a Compaq, it had slots for the speakers to hang on and provided the power for the speakers. The speakers still got their input from a cable that plugged into the computer sound output jack. If those speakers are the style Compaq supplied when I worked at a Compaq service shop, they originally came with metal stands that fit into slots on the back so you could stand them up on their own, and a 12-volt power adapter so you could use them without the monitor. If you don't have those pieces, you can buy a suitable power adapter (12 volts DC at 1 amp) at Radio Shack but the speaker stands are hard to find. You could try eBay, or just make a holder of some kind. (A friend of mine used those little wooden stands you can buy to display plates to hold her speakers when she got a new monitor. They worked out pretty well.)

Or you can replace the speakers. A new set would have everything you need. But those Compaq speakers sounded pretty good, so if they're still working you might want to keep them.

Vizio Speaker Making a Buzzing Noise

My 32" vizio I bought a week ago does the same things.

Buy an external sound system for the tv. Turn the speakers off in the TV menu. Hook the sound system up to the out speaker hookups on the tv.

You will not only have better found, you will fix the speaker buzz problem.

Any amp will do for this speaker, and is really the only way to use it with your TV. Unless the set has external speaker jacks. the you cannot use it as a standalone device.

DO NOT be tempted to connect to the internals of the TV. The type of power supply used in TV means that quite dangerous voltages may be present on the chassis exposing the user to electrocution risk.

Goodluck. Thanks for using FixYa :)
