My Acer Iconia A1 tablet has gone mute. All of the sudden, with no warnings or weird scratching sounds, the volume was no more. I tried everything I could think of in the settings, but nothing helped. The headphones still work, and when I connected it to my car radio it plays through the AUX cable with no issue. What I would like to know is 1) if there is a way to know if this is a software or hardware problem and 2) if the speakers can be replaced in case it’s their fault.
Speaker malfunction in an Acer Iconia A1
Hey Rex, it’s unnatural for a speaker to just die all of a sudden without any hardware or driver issues. Speakers in our computers, laptops are just simple electromagnetic devices and all they do is transmit signals from the hardware and out the speaker output. Try also to simply tweak your device manager. From Start, go to control panel, then double click the System, then next select Hardware tab, now click the device manager. Within the device manager click on the plus [+] sign before the Sound or game controllers. Also do check on the possibility that there might be a yellow question mark for this will indicate one of the required device driver is corrupted or missing.
