HDMI No sound - DV6T-3100

I have a dv6t-3100 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC.

The last time I was successful connecting to my Sharp Aquos LC52D62U via HDMI cable was about three months ago.

I found out about a month ago that I lost audio from the same connection. I am suspecting some of the "automatic updates" may have jeopardized the driver. I couldn't pinpoint which update it was since there are so many of them.

I tried going through many posts and searches, but couldn't find solution. 

Please let me know what to do to get back the sound.

The notebook has Windows7 Home Premium 64-bit with 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650.

Sincerely,

Patt

Hi Patt,

 

With the notebook connected to your Tv, right click the speaker icon in the Taskbar and select Playback Devices.  Left click the AMD HDMI Output once to highlight it and then click the Set Default buuton.  Click Apply to save this change.  Do you now get audio over the HDMI connection?

 

Regards,

Re: HDMI No sound - DV6T-3100

David,

Thanks for prompt reply...

Before I posted this thread, I'd tried that exact thing so many many times, and there was no sound coming out.

 

After receiving your message, I was going to reply just like that.

But I told myself to give it another try, and there it was... I've got the sound came out from the TV!

 

I truly don't know what I did different from those unsuccessful times.

Is it possible Windows had done another update to fix it?

Thank you for your help,

Patt

Hi Patt,

 

You're welcome and I'm glad it helped :smileyhappy:

 

This sort of issue can be a bit picky - sometimes the HDMI connection isn't properly recognised and so setting the default audio to this then fails to work. 

 

All the best,

Hi,

 

Right click the speaker icon in the Taskbar and select Playback devices.  What devices are listed here?

 

Could you also post back with the Product No. of your notebook - for further details, see Here.
