SOURCE: kinyo speakers will not work on my computer

First thing I would try is to figure out if this is a speaker problem or a system driver problem or hardware issue. First, try using headphones from an ipod and plug them into your computer and listen. Check for the input and not to mistake the miocrophone input. They should be clearly marked. If it works then its your speakers. If it does not work, you should try reloading your drivers. You can download the drivers from the company website or you may have the drivers on the system restore CD that came with the computer. Another thing to try is to reinstall the hardware. Sometimes, their is a confict when you install devices like webcams. You can verify that you do not have a problem by contacting the webcam company. Try contacting the manufacturer of the computer if it is within the last few years. Worst case, bring it in for a diagnostic to a local PC repair. Should be an inexpensive fix, less than 50.00 Hope I could help point you in the right direction Mike

SOURCE: No Sound on TV??

I would borrow a set of external speakers to see if I could get sound from the sound circuit at all, if not, then it sounds like the repair shop.

SOURCE: WD-52628 Mitsubishi - change inputs

We had the same problem. Luckily, we had a service contract, so it was serviced yesterday. The fix involved the service guy going through a "service menu" and resetting the TV that way. He was not "allowed" to tell me how I can access the service menu, however. I do plan to research this on the internet in case it happens in the future. It is basically a software/computer problem, and unplugging the TV isn't enough to clear it unless the TV is unplugged for "a long time." The technician said the length of time depends on the condition of your capacitors. Anyway, as a temporary fix, he showed me that you can go into the PIP mode. The device toggle for PIP apparently did still work with mine, so I was able to switch the device on the secondary picture and then switch it to primary, then toggle the PIP off. Good luck!

Why does sound turn off.

Follow these steps to troubleshoot if there is no sound or intermittent sound from the speakers.
IMPORTANT: Not all of these features and/or functions are available on all products. Consult the instruction manual that came supplied with your unit to verify if your particular unit has these features, or if more detailed information is required to perform any of the steps below.
NOTES: Click on the appropriate link below if the issue is occurring with a particular device or connection.
  1. Make sure the MUTE function has not been activated.
  2. Try turning up the volume level.
  3. Check that there are no headphones connected.
  4. Try setting the Audio/Video (A/V) receiver to a different Surround Sound mode.IMPORTANT: Verify that the source you are playing is encoded with Surround Sound audio. If not, the audio will be very difficult to hear using a Surround Sound setting. Set Surround Sound to OFF when playing a source that is not encoded with a Surround Sound signal.
  5. Check each speaker to make sure they are properly connected to the A/V receiver.
  6. Perform a Test Tone function to verify if the speakers are working correctly.
  7. Verify all external audio sources are securely connected to the appropriate inputs on the A/V receiver. NOTE: If the audio is being sent from a television to the A/V receiver, then it may be necessary to disable the internal speakers of the TV or set the audio output of the TV to FIXED or VARIABLE. If the audio output of the TV is set to VARIABLE, then you will need to increase the volume level of the TV.
  8. Make sure the correct audio input is selected on the A/V receiver.
  9. Confirm what type of HDMI® devices are connected to the A/V receiver and then check the following:

    1. Test each one of the HDMI inputs on the A/V receiver to confirm that all of the inputs for the A/V receiver are working.
    2. Try a couple of different HDMI cables to verify there is not a bad set of cables.
    3. Unplug the video source from the A/V receiver and connect the source directly to the television. If there is still a problem with the audio, continue to the next step. If connecting the source to the TV corrects the sound issue, service will be needed on the A/V receiver. NOTE: Additional troubleshooting steps are available to troubleshoot instances when the audio, video, or both goes out when using an HDMI connection.
  10. Verify the DEMO (demonstration) mode is not active.
  11. Change the ATT (attenuate) setting. NOTE: The procedure to change the ATT feature varies by model.
  12. Reset the A/V receiver back to factory specifications.
The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required.

Why is there no output to right speaker?

Confirm that the audio balance is not set to the left but in the middle!

Swap speaker connections to make sure the problem doesn't follow the speaker indicating the wiring to the speaker or speaker is bad.

Need to confirm that the input to the selected device is OK. Swap input RCA Red and White connections from the source. If an optical confirm that the source balance if the setting is available is set to middle

On many upgrade receivers as this Sherwood there is a test feature that confirms with an audio beep the speaker balance and connections. Look for a "Test" button.

Beside swapping the speaker connections left to right swap the speakers between the A and B speakers. See image for connection detail.

How do I install my Labtec Pulse 375 Flat Panel Stereo Speaker System

Based on the color-coded audio cables that came with the speaker system, connect one of the AUDIO OUTPUTS set on your audio source (TV, PC) to a corresponding AUDIO INPUT set on your speaker system.

Just bought a Yamaha RX-V371 surround sound receiver and the TV audio signal is cutting out. I am running a Samsung LED TV with a single HDMI cable (sound/picture). I tested a smaller tv with a short HDM...

Settings are not the source of intermittent problems.

"Signal loss" is indicated WHERE? So what's going on upstream at the source? ITS cables are a part of this.

My $.02... I never route any signal unnecessarily to or through a device that doesn't enhance or consume it. Hence, my BEST video from each of my several video sources goes directly to my TV/monitor and my BEST digital audio from all sources goes directly to my AVR.

No problems.

Can't get sound to come from speakers with tv only the radio

You didn't give the brand and model of your TV, and I can't try to find a manual and see what kind of AV connections it has available. So here's some general information.

Many TV sets only have input jacks for external sources like DVD players or cable boxes. When you select an external source, or use the set's internal tuner for TV programming, the video and audio play through the TV. The trouble is that if the set has no audio output jacks, there's no way to get a sound signal out. The TV accepts only inputs

When the TV is part of a home theater system, most people use it just as a video monitor. All AV sources connect to the receiver, and audio is sent from there to the speakers. A video output from the receiver goes to the TV so you can see the picture, and the TV's speakers aren't used. If you have a cable box, FiOS set-top box or satellite receiver for your TV channels, they connect to the receiver too, since they're just another external source.

This doesn't work if you rely on the TV's internal tuner for TV channels, though. This might be the case, for instance, if you have a cable system where a converter box isn't required and your cable connects right to the TV. When you're watching regular TV, then, the sound comes through the set's internal speakers. If there's no audio output available on your TV, that's your only option.

As I said earlier, many TV's have only audio inputs. But some have audio output jacks as well, so the sound has a way out. If yours does, you can connect them to one of the inputs on the home theater receiver. Then when you select that input you'll get the TV sound through the speakers connected to the receiver. Depending on the design of the TV, you may need to leave the TV volume turned up. Some sets have outputs that are follow the TV's volume setting. On others, the output is an independent fixed level. Then you can turn the TV volume down and use just the receiver's speakers if you want.

Check the connections available on your TV and look for a set of "audio out" jacks. Your TV's owner's manual should have a section explaining how to connect it in different ways. If you need a copy, most manufacturers have manuals for download on their website.

Good luck with your sound, and thanks for using Fixya!

Only 2ch sound on sony strde898

I understand that you have tried connecting different audio source to the Receiver as some of the audio source will output only 2 channel audio. I hope you have tried changing the Input mode and Input selector to get the surround sound.
Please disconnect the speakers with the receiver and clean the edges of receiver and speaker cables using solution like alcohol and try.
If the issue persists, please interchange the rear speakers with front speakers and vice versa and check if audio is coming to make sure that the speakers are working fine.
If the audio comes after replacing the speakers but not from surround speakers, the receiver requires service.

Use of AV2 input sound socketsto play ipod

The sound is muted unless a video signal is detected on this TV. The only work around would be to connect the camcorder or some other active video to tha input but using the IPOD for the audio.
