  • No sound while watching the video from the portable computer

    Hello guys,.

    I have HP pavilion laptop computer with Windows 8 is installed.

    Since a few days, when I watched ALL the videos on the laptop, I have no sound at all.

    Video works fine, everything else seems to work very well.

    Thank you


    Modern user interface or desktop Internet Explorer?

    Have you tried a simple system restore to a date when everything was working for you?

    If you did (or just don't want that easy way back or can not because your restore points aren't that far behind, or whatever...), you can try:

    Uninstall all Plugins Internet (RealPlayer, QuickTime, Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Shockwave Player, Adobe Air, Adobe Reader, Microsoft Silverlight, pack K-lite codec, Java Runtime Environment (JRE), etc.) to your computer.
    Turn it back on.

    [Note: If you don't have any other browsers installed at that time, taste: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera are decent.]
    Restart the computer.
    Install the following plugins:

    Be careful when installing each of them to NOT install anything other than the application.  No additional software such as bars of tools or scanners virus or other - uncheck options you install (go through the steps of each and READ/UNDERSTAND what you click on!)
    Restart the computer.

  • No sound from the right speaker / can not configure the speakers

    Hi all

    I have a new computer Sony laptop and just tried plugging in my speakers 2.1 computer inside.  Sound only comes out of the left satellite and a subwoofer.  When I try to set them up in the sound control panel, the installation of the single speaker on the speaker Assistant is stereo and only the first test tone (left) plays from the satellite on the left, then silence (no dial tone test on the right).

    Everything works fine on the built-in Laptop speakers, but they are for computer speakers, so I wish I could use my old speakers when I'm at my desk.

    Sony Vaio and Windows Update Update did not recommend all new drivers for the audio controller.  I downloaded and installed the latest driver on the site from Realtek but that didn't work at all so I rolled it back to the version provided with the system.

    Work fine with my laptop speakers older and my cell phone, so the fault is not with the right satellite is.

    Thank you

  • iOS 10 no sound from the speaker of the ear or EarPods

    After update of iOS 10 (in 6 s iPhone and 5s) I have a problem then to make or receive calls. Most of the time it is no sound from the speaker of the ear or EarPods and I have to press the speaker during calls to listening. To get back what I have my iPhone and open it again. This seems to happen after that I used once the EarPods.

    Be aware that I have consume EarPods in 90% of my calls and iOS 9 I had no problem at all.

    Hello Billy78GR,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support. It is my understanding that you met the receiver and headphone audio problems after update to iOS 10. I know that it is extremely important to be able to hear others during calls. I'm happy to help you to get this resolved with you.

    First of all, I recommend you restart. This can solve many unexpected behaviours. Follow the steps below to restart.

    1. Press and hold the sleep/wake button until the Red slider appears.
    2. Drag the slider to turn off your device completely off.
    3. Once the device turns off, press and hold the sleep/wake button again until you see the Apple logo.

    Restart your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

    As you use the headphones on most of your calls, I recommend checking and removal of dust or debris from the helmet. If the problem persists, please refer to the additional steps in the link below.
    If you do not hear a person, a call or a voice message or if the sound is not clear on your iPhone

    Have a great day!

  • New iPhone SE no sound from the speaker of the brand

    I just bought a new iPhone SE and I'm getting no sound from the speaker. Does anyone have any ideas on a possible resolution?

    I restored from an iPhone 5 to the top, both phones are on the latest version of iOS.

    Once the synchronization is complete, I ejected the phone correctly. But there is no sound coming from the speaker:

    • Key "secret" in both positions, no sound from the speaker
    • The top volume, using the volume buttons and the sound, no sound from the speaker settings
    • Headset plugged in, sound comes from the helmet, remove them, the iPhone recognizes, but still no sound
    • I tried the music app, ringtone from another phone, videos, podcast app, no sound from the speaker
    • Past the phone power off & on again, no sound speaker
    • Reset iPhone (hold both buttons down for 10 seconds), no speaker sound
    • Reset iPhone settings, no speaker sound

    I begin to suspect it is a hardware problem, but as I am not near the Apple Store, I would try as much as I can before you go this route.

    Thank you

    Hello Andy,

  • No sound from the tv with hdmi w3 connection

    I have a standard micro HDMI to connect my w3 to tv.  When a movie plays on the w3, I can see the video on the Tablet and the tv, but only the Tablet has its.  Is this normal?   I checked that the tv properly with other hdmi sources works but have no way to test the brand new microphone cable or w3 drivers.

    I was unable to locate a compatible driver on

    However, I tried the w3 with a different TV and everything worked as expected: even with only a 'driver' Intel ESS Audio Device (WDM) available.  Passage of the tablet on television was automatic.  I did plug in and turn on the tablet in front of the TV and everything worked.

    I tried the same procedure with the original tv and the results were good video but no sound from the TV.  The sound remained with the tablet.

    I hae 2 TVs and 2 blueray players.  I swapped every combination of TV and player and everything works well.  Since the Tablet works well with at least one TV, the hdmi cable is ok.  My conclusion is that the current configuration of the Tablet works with some TVs and others not, and until I can find a better driver I'll just have to live with it.  I wanted to be able to watch videos with the Tablet when I traveled and will just have to wait until I get whenever I go to see if it works.  Not very desirable but it's like that.

    Thanks for your suggestions and help.
