Hmmm ok my tip is turn the volume to about....6-8 and open the things that hold the wires in they maybe in too far or not far enough and see if this increases the sound, let me know if this helps and acctually works:)

My tablet sound is low even when i have my volume settings at the max

This may sound silly, bit do you have your tablet in a sleeve or cover? If so, check that the cover is not covering the speaker outlet(s) on the back of the tablet. If it is, a hole or slot cut into the cover over where the speakers are located should fix the problem.
By the way, a quick test to see if this is the proble is to operate the tablet with the cover removed. If the sound is now OK, it's the cover causing the problem. This happens more often than you might think...

Also, some tablet do have really poor audio systems and both low volume and low quality sound. Hopefully your tablet is not one of them.

After my girl tried to turn it on (God know what button the pressed) I can only hear a very low sound from the speakers, even when the volume is at max. speakers are connected properly, the input is in...

I wonder if she pressed the mute button as it is used to silence the speakers when required.. Look for a button with the sign that looks like a speaker with a cross onit

My tv has no sound

increase the volume to max level .close yourself to TV speaker and listen.if could not hear anything,just turn it off and turn on if you could not hear at least pop sound from the speaker,you will have to replace new speaker.if you are able to hear Buzz noise or very low sound ,sound circuit has to be repaired.

Very low sound volume

1. In bottom right of your taskbar is an icon of a small speaker, click on that and make sure the slider bar is at 100%.
2. Click the windows button in lower left corner and then click on control panel. Then click Hardware and Sound, then click adjust system volume and make sure those are at max volume and not muted.
3. Depending on your system there may be software that installed to manage your sound card or onboard sound, if there is usually there will be an icon representing it on the lower right of your taskbar. Open that and make sure sound levels are set to max and not muted as well.
4. Make sure you plugged the speakers into the right jack in the back, sometimes when plugged into the wrong hole you can faintly hear sound but thats it, USUALLY its the light green jack you want but that can vary (some sound card/connections will have small icons by each of the colored jacks as well though they are usually faint and kinda hard to see...they can help make sure speakers are plugged into the right spot)
5. Its possible your speakers are just old or defective and simply need replaced.

I am able to get sound through my speakers when I play a DVD or when I select the TV as a source but I have to crank the volume on the receiver up almost to the max to hear either source.

NEVER turn the volume up to MAX for testing. You'll destroy something when you finally find the switch that's wrong.

Can you provide a model number instead of a dubious power spec to describe the unit so we can know specifically what controls it has?

Has it ever worked?

Does the speaker adjustment routine (guessing it has one) make tone in all speakers?

What about the onboard FM? Is that too weak? If not, you need to figure out why external sources are too low.

I'd suspect a Tape Monitor is active when it shouldn't be. Or MUTE is on.

Low Volume despite High setting on TV

HI I am having the same problem. tv sound is fine, then fades so that 50 is the only sound volume to hear the show. It happens intermittently. Did you get your's solved? thanks

Sound output is low nowadays even at full volume whereas before it was ok. I didn't change anything with my computer nor did I change my speakers.

Two possible causes.1) Vol Settings changed in windows2) Bad hardware
1) Check your system's sound settings:

For Xp
  • Goto Control Panel
  • Double Click Sound and Audio devices / Sound, Speech, and Audio Devices
  • In device Volume Click Advance
  • Master Volume Control Window will open
  • Increase all the volumes to max, also make sure that Mute us UNCHECKED.

  • From the bottom right corner of your screen in system tray, double click a small speaker icon and open Master Volume Control.

For Vista and Windows 7
  • From system tray (its at bottom right corner of your screen) double click on small speaker icon, it will open Volume mixer
  • Increase the volume to max.

2) If this does not work, then test your speakers by connecting it to some other system and vice versa.
If you get desired sound volume when you connect some other speakers to your system, then you have to change your speakers. And if your speakers are working fine on other system then you may have to purchase a new sound card.

Sound is low

try to see if the wave volume is on and maximum on the volume panel ( double click on vol icon on tray system (right low) ) ...also see if your speakers are plugged into the proper place ...and are not in the auxiliary out or something like this ...they should be plugged into the green middle out ...if they are simple stereo 3,2 jack ..if the problem its still on ..its probably the sound card...(actually the pre-amplifier on it ..)

Volume low

there is problem with ur speaker which make sound. it need to be replaced take it to technician so it can be replaced
