Sony :: Interference When Z Audio Out Plugged Into Amp
Jan 5, 2009
When i plug my Sony Z into my Denon Receiver, using 3.5mm Jack -> 2 x Phono cable, there is a huge amount of crackling interference. At first i thought i was the lead but then I used it the other day again and it was fine and didn't know why.
In the end, i found out the AC Power Adapter wasn't plugged in and this worked fine. I then plugged in the AC Power Adapter and the crackling interference came back. My old Dell i8100 does not have this issue.
i am the proud owner of a brand new HDX18T. Everything seems to be functioning fine except the following:
Whenever I plug in headphones, the audio from the PC speakers continues to play. I can hear everything in the headphones AND the PC speakers at the same time. I spoke with an HP support tech who suggested reloading the driver which I did. The problem remains. I am hoping that this is a software setup somewhere that I just haven't found yet,
Also, this solution doesn't work:"All u need to do, is right click Communication headphones, and click Disable.right click Sound button on taskbar> playback devices now you have speakers and headphones selected as default device, and communication headphones seleted as default communication device."The communication headphones have been disabled, but the speakers still play alongside the headphones.
I think part of the problem is that the playback device is "Speakers and headphones", but I can't split this into two separate devices for the life of me. if I disable "Speakers and Headphones" and enable "Communication headphones", the problem fixes itself and then introduces new problems: certain programs requiring sound output do not work, and the volume-changing buttons on my keyboard don't change the volume.
I have IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC (as a driver?).I can't remember what I did before this happened. I suspect it was the audio driver update, but that's a wild guess.
I have a HP ENVY M6 Notebook, after I update my PC, there is no sound at all. It shows no speakers or headphones are plugged in. Also IDT High Definition Audio CODEC was disappear. How can I reinstall it?
I have a Probook 4720s with Windows 7 Pro. Connecting my laptop to the TV with a HDMI cable worked fine then suddenly the next time I did this I had no sound and when I right click the sound Icon I noticed it read ATI High Definition Audio device not plugged in. It worked once and now it won't, I miss it. The driver is up to date.
This doesn't always happen, but I've noticed a few times on my T440p that when I have headphones plugged in, sounds comes out of the speakers. The headphones are functional and fully plugged in, yet no sound comes out of them, and the sound comes out of the speakers. I've fixed this multiple times by unplugging the headphones and plugging them back in.
(My problem differs from this one, where sounds comes from both the headphones and speakers)....
I forgot my Z-series plugged in AC ( switched off ofcourse) for about a month or 3 weeks. I am so terrified that this might have affected the battery life? The laptop is brand new that makes me more upset
I did a clean install of Windows 7 on my Z590 after upgrading the BIOS to R2170M3. Everything works perfectly but I just can't get any sound over HDMI on my TV. Totally ruins the Windows 7 experience...
I have the NVIDIA 187.35 drivers from Sony installed. When I install the previous NVIDIA drivers for Vista (174.49), I immediately get sound over HDMI. Apparently this is an NVIDIA problem.
I was wondering if there was anybody here that might know where Sigmatel Audio Chip is located on the VAIO SZ1XX series. It can only be in 1 of 3 places; the main board, the PWB Board (Speakers attach here), or the CNX Board (Where audio jacks are located)
1- my hard drive makes a very soft clicking noise, only noticeable when the room is perfectly quiet. but it's also noticeable because my system locks when it clicks for this split second, enough that if im scrolling it lags. not a biggie but...
2- ive found my audio (mp3s) to be skipping (odd click or blip here or there, like the track was ripped badly), and to my ear's horror, PURE STATIC for a few seconds will pop up irregardless of the volume settings (ie. i will try to scroll down volume in itunes but it has no effect on the banshee like sound thats trying to destroy my ear drums).
This happens in WMP and iTunes, so its not a software problem....
so whats going on? hdd dying? sound card dying? windows?
Running my FW290 with an ATI 3650 through my AVR (Onkyo TX-SR706), I get video, but no audio - audio stays with the computer. I have no audio issues running the computer through HDMI directly to my TV (except at times I've had to switch the default playback device to HDMI). That option is not available here as the computer is not showing any HDMI output.
I have recently purchased a new i5 vaio S from bestbuy. the first one that I got had a squeaky keyboard so I returned it for another. Both of these brand new computers audio randomly glitch out after about 20ish minutes of listening to music. This happens with both headphones and using the laptop speakers. I can only describe the sound as if you tazer'd a robot... its the weridest noise I have heard and only last for a second and then music continues to play. This happens with music on my computer, youtube videos, ect...
I have a sony vaio Sz691N laptop and got windows 7 64 bits installed. The high definition audio controller is always disabled after restarting. I have to go to device manager to enable it every time. it is annoying me. Has anyone had the same problem before and has a solution?
I have the following problem: Sony Vaio VGN-FW370J with Win Vista Home Premium 64 with Aptio Utility.
I do have realtek hd audio card and this card should have digital output. My gf has a toshiba satellite with the same card and she has it but I don't. I called sony and they replied (twice with different technicians) that this feature is not available on this model. Both audio cards have the same chip so I suspect that this feature is disabled hw.
It is not a driver problem. The driver does not install the Realtek Audio Manager so within the OS there is no way to enable it.
I ordered new E6500 that came with Vista on it and I wiped that and have installed XP Pro SP2 on the machine. I have followed the guide on this page and installed everything in the correct order. The only thing that didn't install was the dial-up modem. It errored out and said "No MODEM device was found". Typically on the Latitude laptops I seem to remember installing the modem driver and it taking care of this entry in the device manager, but not this time.
There is a dial-up modem on the laptop and this is the only device that looks to not be installed. There is no webcam, WAN modem, or anything else like that.
Has problem with installing XP onto a E6500? Is the installer for the modem driver just bad or is there possibly something else going on.
The sound on my HP Pavilion G6-1a19wm is not working. Sound "does" work when using the audio jack with external speakers. I have tried uninstalling the driver, updating the driver, microsoft fix-it, and troublshooting steps. audio device shows in device manager and is supposedly working properly, mute is "not' enabled. visually all audio related things suggest that the audio is fine and troubleshooting finds no problems..
I have HP envy 15 j002er laptop. Originally I got it with Windows 8 but then I changed operation system to Windows 7 Pofessional (64-bit).I can`t install IDT high definition audio codec on it. I guess that is the reason why I don`t have and I can`t use Beats Audio interface on my laptop (only speakers are working). There are no audio drivers for Windows 7 available for download on HP website. When I`m cheking for driver updates via HP support, it proposes me only updates for Chipset, Graphics, Network, etc.And no Audio Driver..How can I solve it and install IDT high definition audio codec?

I have no audio. It has been previously working, but suddenly stopped. On the small speaker icon there is a red cross indicating "No Audio Output Device is enabled" When I log on to the computer i get a window that says "CWindowsSystem32AUDIOSES.DLL is not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error."
I have attempted to Troubleshoot but unable to get any sound. I have updated the Audio driver, but it is the up to date driver.
