Hi, the media centre control panel has stopped working. i cannot turn the system on or off or change volume without using the remote control. also the only eject buitton on this system is on the media centre, so i cannot play dvds or cds currently. any ideas?
Hi Just had this issue with one I have just bought it is the ribbon that had come adrift take the six screws out of the unit remove the top and push the ribbon back in to the slot in the front panel take care use a light to see what you are doing once pushed back in it should work ok.Hope this helps !!Cheers.Glyn.
You may be having the same problem I have. There is a ribbon cable that connects the front panel to the main control board. Mine has pulled loose where it connects to the printed circuit board that the buttons "connect" to. I would not suggest taking it apart. I'm in the process of trying to find someone who can repair mine.

My MKS had this exact problem earlier this year. I took it in and they ordered and replaced the buttons. It worked fine for about three months and now is starting to act up again. Have you gotten any definitive answers?
Hi lalit kumar. If both the speakers worked OK at first and not now then something has changed.
1. Check that the speakers are actually still set up to make sound out of both and not just one.If you open control panel > sound there is tabs that you can look at for sound settings.
2. VLC media player has its own settings for "adjustments and effects" You may have set these up in a way that is making the sound only appear to be out of one speaker. Set them to DEFAULT
If the remote control causes a visible change with the volume control display but no audible difference, there are only three possible fixes. 1.)Go to Windows "Start > Control Panel > Sounds > Advanced. Here you will find a set of several volume control slide bars each with a check box at the bottom for muting. Un-check any controls marked as muted and raise the volume to 50%. Exit Control Panel. 2.) Many P.C. speaker systems are self amplified and have their own volume controls which supercede anything you do through Windows. 3.)If the problem persists you most likely have a jack plugged into the wrong feed. Allways power OFF and ground yourself before fiddling with computer jacks.
I had the same problem as this, but have lost my remote, so the system is know useles. Any way back to the point if you wiggle the cable around that goes in the speaker zone port then turn it off and back on then it should work :-D.
Here's how I fixed mine with Win-VISTA: 1.Click START 2.Click CONTROL PANEL 3.(Switch to CLASSIC VIEW) a.Click on SOUND b.Click on PLAYBACK Tab c.Click on SPEAKERS/HEADPHONES d.Click on PROPERTIES e.Click on CUSTOM Tab i.Make sure PC SPK MUTE is NOT checked f.Click on LEVELS Tab i.Slide PC SPEAKER to 100% ii.Don’t worry about the SPEAKER slider, it’s controlled by the keyboard buttons g.Click on ENHANCEMENTS Tab i.Make sure LOUDNESS EQUALIZATION is checked h.Click OK i.Click OK 4.Close CONTROL PANEL
The system comes with l remote which provides controls
for "Power", "Master Volume", "Bass (Subwoofer) Volume" and "Matrix
Mode" . Matrix mode allows you to
spread stereo sound to all speakers where your sound card may not have
the ability to do so. I find that the "Stereo Surround" setting works best as opposed to the recommended "CMSS" setting
Have you tried doing the system restore? If yes, then try to do this ff steps:
1. Uninstall the sigmatel driver in add or remove programs
2. Uninstall the sigmatel driver in device manager (click the + sign under sound, video and game controllers)
3. Download and install the latest Sigmatel Driver at http://tinyurl.com/yo24rz
4. Reboot the system.
Go to Control Panel, open device manager, and and check for any yellow
checks for your sound, video and game
controllers. If there are none, your system is go. Then go to your
audio manager on control panel, and set it up for whatever speaker
configuration you have. I have realtec audio manager. This step is a
must for configuring—you choose whether your laptop will use its
own speaks or use your external speakers—you have to turn off the
internal speakers and turn on the external manually. You can adjust volume there..
