SOURCE: hp dv71245dx cannot remove from muted state.

hi
Go to Control panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume. Check that Device Volume is at least halfway across the slider and that Mute is unchecked. Go to Advanced and make sure that nothing is mute. Go to Speaker Volume and set the sliders at least halfway across the slider. Go to Advanced, and in Speakers setup choose Laptop Stereo Speakers (if that's what you have). Go to Performance and choose Restore Defaults. Click Apply > OK

plz do inform if this has sorted out the problem
all the best
regards

This is not a typical setup for most TVs. There are ways around it though. If your set has a set of audio output jacks, than those can be used to power a separate sound source for the headphones. There are adaptive listening systems available for this purpose what use either infra-red transmitters or RF transmitters to matching headphones. The key here is whether or not the TV has the audio output available.

Please check that and update this with what you find and I'll try to provide a solution within the context of your specific set. Post the TV model number too.

Thanks,
Dan

SOURCE: Right speaker is not operating on a set of AKG headphones.

Go in by the part that fits to your ear. You will need to remove the ear pad. Also the foam, you might have to force the foam off, you can glue it back when done. With them gone you should see access screws.

Hi,
I had the same problem. For me it helped to turn on Hotkey utility (was already installed). If you do not have it, try to google it.
Hope it helps

Getting no sound hooked up to pre-amp and 2 rotel 200w amps with snell speakers


You didn't say whether the player is connected by 2 RCA cables (analog) or by digital cable. If by RCA, does the player have a headphone jack? I had a player once with a piece of a headphone that broke off inside the jack, muting the analog outputs.

I have a CD Stereo system SA-AK17, 120V, 145W, without speaker. I provided 2 speaker with the brand of Technics, input 200W(.music), 100W(DIN) each speaker. I bought Audio wire and connect speakers...


Some stereo system have the ability to switch off the speakers when playing via headphones. In others the headphone socket itself does the switching. However headphone sockets can become faulty and when the headphone plug is removed it doesn't restore sound to the speakers. It's very easy to fix this, with a check that the contacts are not bent out of place. Or you can rewire a new headphone socket, making a note of the wire connections before you replace it.
Sometimes it is quite difficult to get the speaker cable to make a good contact with the speaker sockets. You should check that they are making contact.
To test any loudspeaker just connect a 1.5 battery for a short time across the disconnected speaker. If working the speaker will pop!
As the sound is going to the headphones the amp seems to be OK and one of the above options should correct the problem.

Marantz pm 7200 loudspeakers do not cut off when headphones pugged in


Some amps have a button which you press to mute the speakers when the headphones are plugged in. Sometimes marked "Speakers on off". If it hasn't then a new headphone socket would not be expensive to fit. As long as the amp producers sound I don't see any future problems. The previous owner may have used the headphone socket a lot, and simply wore it out!

My amp isn't producing any sound. It works when headphones are in but that's it. Please help


The headphones socket is on the preamp stage - it works so the problem must be after the pre-amp.
Do you get any sound at all from the speakers (hiss or perhaps a click) when you turn it on?
If yes it is an amplifier problem.
Here are some possible causes
  • A wire has come off the loudspeaker - easy to fix
  • Speaker protection fuse has blown - small glass fuse mounted on main amplifier chassis - replace with correct rated and type of fuse (note some of these are 'slow' blow type - important that you get the right one)
  • faulty component in the main amplifier stage - requires attention from qualified repairer
  • Loudspeaker burnt out - this can be tested by connecting another speaker across the terminals of the built in speaker.
  • The headphone jack socket automatically disconnects the loudspeaker when phones are plugged in - it could be that the contact in the headphone jack socket is bent and not re-making contact when the headphones are unplugged.

Power amp r b 981 no power to the speakers. Pre amp seems to be ok. Headphones work.


Check the headphone socket if it cuts out the speakers (normal use) when you plug the headphones in. If it doesn't and you have a switch to switch off the speakers when listening to headphones, check the switch. It may be physical damage or dirt causing the problem, or even loose soldering on the headphone socket. But the fact that headphones work shows the main amp is working. Also make certain the speakers are connected properly.

Picture but no sound on proton pltc32cm tv


Hello,


First check that any muting control is not activated. This might be a button on the remote or set itself. If you have a headphone jack, it may have dirty contacts as plugging in a headphone usually mutes the speaker.If the set is mono or only one channel of a stereo set is out, then check for bad connections to the loudspeaker. Test the loudspeaker by disconnecting one of the wires (with the power off!) and measuring its resistance with an ohmmeter (it should be less than 100 ohms - probably less than 8 ohms). Or momentarily touch a 1.5 volt battery to the speaker terminals - you should get a click or pop from the speaker.
Next, trace back from the speaker output terminals to the circuit board and look for bad solder connections or a loose or dirty connector.
If these tests do not reveal anything, you probably need a scope (or audio signal tracer) and schematic. Or at least the part number off of the chip. Is the final amp a chip also or just a transistor? Have you tested the transistor? If there is little or no buzz from the speaker, that would indicate a problem fairly near the output. If the tuner/if were bad, I would expect some noise/humm pickup from the low level audio stages. Get the part number off of the chip. If it is in a socket, check the contacts for corrosion or looseness.


Take care.....
