Question about Polaroid Televison & Video
Go into input or source if changing doesn't help go into audio settings see if speakers on
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

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!
