Mute, cd/dvd, play, stop etc buttons do not work on my laptop satellite

Hope you can help.

For some reason the buttons that control the mute, play, stop, fast Fwd and rewind, not the light upwards and not not work?
I can't work out how to get them working again
Any ideas?

Thank you

Hi Saka

I don't know what model of laptop you have, but please try to reinstall the package of added value.
Remove the preinstalled version, restart your computer and install latest version offered on Toshiba support and download page under

Please post the result.

  • Re: Satellite U400 - buttons mute/DVD/play/stop etc do not work

    Just checked that I have the same problem - it's none of my touch buttons work (mute/DVD/play/stop, etc.) and they stay on up - even when I turn off my laptop completely.

    As far as I know that I did nothing else except some windows update, that could have done it? I quite often use these buttons, so the question is rather awkward for me.

    If it is a different matter, I'll start a new thread. See you soon


    Eventually MS updates confused something in your system.
    The buttons are controlled by the different applications that are part of the VAP.

    I think that you should remove the PPV of the system and should reinstall it again.

    Hi pixelmatic,.

    It is more than likely due to changes in Premiere Pro audio engine. You can post a screenshot of your preferences > Audio Hardware Setup?

  • My mute button does not work

    The button does not work everytime I try to put my phone on silent. I turn it down and it will automatically return to the sound, it activates again upward. What can I do?

    Hello Jackie101foever,

    Thank you for using communities Support from Apple!

    As I understand it, you can't silence your iPhone.  I have a suggestion that should help you with this.

    The first thing we want to do is to make sure that you have a current backup of everything on your iPhone.  If you follow this link, you will find instructions on how to make a backup:

    The backup of your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

    If the silent button moves upward on its own, so you must do this checked by a service representative.  You can find the nearest one by looking here:

    Find locations

    If the button is stay down, but do not silence the iPhone then we want to restore all settings.

    Reset preference files resets all parameters that may be problems. This step will not delete your contacts, photos or personal information. It deletes all your preferences for Wi - Fi, Bluetooth, do not disturb, Notifications, general, sounds, brightness & wallpaper and privacy and removes your Touch ID & password.

    Do you this by clicking on settings > general > reset > reset all settings.

    Once you have done this, restart the iPhone and see if you are able to turn off the sound.

    Have a great day!

  • Satellite A660 - touch pad / stop and other buttons do not work

    Dear people on this forum,

    Recently, about 3 weeks ago, I turned on my computer and I cleaned out the dust because it was overheating.

    about 2 weeks before, I noticed that my touchpad is not working and the buttons at the top of the page do not work, there is no light (multimedia audio buttons wireless) I can't activate/deactivate or either, I don't know how. I don't know if the problem because I cleaned my laptop and has not logged a few threads back but I included this detail because I do not use these buttons if I haven't noticed if they were on. but he said: 2 days ago, I don't know how my wireless exploded Ant when I press fn + f8 (wireless) wireless communication switch is turned off, which is one of the buttons is not working (upstairs next to / switch even with my touch pad)

    I tried the following:

    Windows Update
    turn off the computer, remove all cables and battery and wait for about 30 minutes. Then then hold down the button for 30 seconds
    Reinstall the support flash cards, hw Setup utility / value pack
    and finally a Toshiba out of the recovery of the box using the recovery of 2 cd product

    I don't know what to do next. It's either:

    try something else
    or is there a wire is connected both touchpad and the buttons at the top and I have to open my laptop and connect them.

    Please answer as to my next step to get my wireless.

    Please don t get me wrong, but I don t know how to help you now. Disassembly of the laptop is to only authorized persons and if you do it on your own there is always a risk that something may be hurt or may be damaged.

    OK, I must also say that I also removed my machine too but I got lucky and everything is OK as before.
    I put t know how A660 looks inside, but the principle is still the same and I can't imagine you have whatever it is damaged.
    You know very well that we cannot say much about your problem. What you need to do now is the final test of functionality and install original recovery image that you got with your laptop. Test the functionality with the factory settings. If the problem is still there, I m afraid you must open for new laptop and check if everything is connected correctly.

    Last option is to contact the service and ask for help.

  • Re: Qosmio G30 (PQG32) - buttons does not work

    I have a problem with my Qosmio G30 HD-DVD. I use Windows Vista 64 bit Ultimate, but my buttons will not work. I tried to download the drivers for it, but I couldn't find a 32-bit version.
    Can someone help me?

    I also tried to download util_tvap that should work, but the problem is that I have to configure my own buttons here, and I don't know how to set up a play etc button because you provide a path.


    Do you mean the buttons between the screen and the keyboard?

    I think the reason is the 32-bit version of the Package of added value. If you have a 64 bit OS, you need drivers 64-bit as well.
    If you are looking for on the official website of Toshiba Qosmio G40 G50, you can find the package of added value for Vista 64-bit. It should work on your laptop too. In addition, after the installation of VAP, you n t have to configure the buttons. Everything will solve automatically.

  • Qosmio F30: Toshiba control buttons do not work on Vista 64 bit

    Hello everyone

    I have Windows Vista 64-bit installed on my Qosmio F30, but before operation buttons do not work.
    I tried to use the 32-bit configuration of Vista drivers, but when I press it, I got the following error: "this function not taken in charge.

    So please can someone help me to overcome this problem.



    You cannot use these Toshiba control buttons (play, pause, etc.) because the necessary drivers are not installed.

    You will need a compatible Vista value added package, but it seems that Toshiba page does not provide the 64-bit VAP but only the 32-bit version.
    The problem is that the software for Vista 32 bit does not work on Vista 64 bit OS.

    In my opinion so there's nothing to do right now

  • Satellite A300 - 1GN PASGCE - LED light button does not work with Win 7

    I improve my laptop for windows 7 everything works fine but the touchpad multimedia light led power button does not work.
    Play, stop, next work earlier but not the light / off does not work.

    No idea why?


    Maybe it's a question of s a Win 7.
    I mean that the software is not intended for Win 7 but only for Vista.

    But you should check if you can reconfigure this button again.
    In Toshiba Assist-> optimize, you can find the Support of Toshiba Button tool.
    This tool can be used for the new configuration of the control buttons.

    First click on the button that you want to reconfigure and target path you can then choose the path to the exe file that must be executed by pressing this button.

    As far as I know that the exe files are placed in the program files/Toshiba/TSB folder.

    You will find different applications and one of these applications control the light on/off.

  • I have installed the latest updates for my Compaq desktop computer and the DVD/CD drive bay door will not work.

    I have installed the latest updates for my Compaq desktop computer and the DVD/CD drive bay door will not work. I can get the led light will stop flashing when I open the door all the way, the machine detects the drive but do not read or close on its own, how can I get this disc surgery? Downloading updates, I installed a software disc, when I ejected the disc, the drive comes of is stopped. The computer still sees the drive, but will not read or even close on its own. I also had been using my computer in mode mute until I tried to increase the volume and now the computer tells me no playback device installed. Device Manager acknowledges the Harmon/Kardon soundsticks connected to it, but nothing does, how it works? The Control Panel also sees the soundsticks, but still when I try to move the volume the computer says there is no playback device installed.


    1. do you get any error code or error message?

    2. what day you installed recently?

    It seems to be a problem with the hardware. I suggest you try to uninstall and reinstall the CD/DVD driver and check if it helps.

    Follow the steps to uninstall and re-install the drivers.

    a. click on start toreduce this includes this im and then click Control Panel.

    b. click system and Maintenance, click Systemand then click on Device Manager.
    Note If Control Panel is in Classic view, double-click System, and then click Device Manager.

    Reduce this includes this imageIf you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or click allow.

    c. in the Manager device, expand CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drives, right click on CD and DVD devices and then click Uninstall.

    d. When you are prompted to confirm that you want to remove the device, click OK.

    e. restart the computer.

    If the methods mentioned above did not help, then it would be best to contact the manufacturer of the computer/CD/DVD player.

    Hope the information is useful.

  • Help! Actions on the buttons do not work?

    I'm having some problems with a clip, I placed buttons and Actionscript 2.0 Play, Pause, a Ffwd etc and when I test the video buttons do not work. Please you can help because it is an achievement I do for my first year in college and I'm really bad with ActionScript?



    You must use the second approach, you described where you assign instance names and keep all the code in the timeline panel.

    I suggest that you concentrate on getting local assistance.  Ask questions and get help from the teacher and students who share the same burden you.

  • "Browser" button does not work

    So useful to someone, here's how I solved this problem.

    Facts: Since the FF27, I couldn't choose where to download a file, or send a file because the "browser" button would not work.

    On the update of Avast program, I stopped "Avast Secure Line" to take (thanks to my firewall Outpost) and then FF started working fine again.

    I was surprised because I had already tried all help given including FF running two Avast with Outpost arrested without success.

    I hope this can help. All the best

  • Portege R600, Toshiba (backlight, toshiba assist) button do not work

    Hello world

    I have the problem with these two buttons on the right top corrner on my toshiba r600 and I just tried all buttons do not work.

    I associated with valid exe files buttons button support assist/toshiba toshiba / register with the paths of the target but buttons still do not work.
    also I check the bios there is nothing that can toggle buttons... etc...

    other things like software drivers successfully installed everything I download from toshiba support page.

    Any help?

    My version of windows is windows server 2008 enterprise x 64 sp1.

    Thank you.


    The buttons work with the previous operating system preinstalled by Toshiba?

    I think the problem is the Windows Server 2008 enterprise x 64 sp1
    Eventually the added value package does not support it fully

    Of course the Windows Server 2008 operating system is based on Vista, but it s not the same thing and I think that's the problem
