It was ok the other day but this morning it is as if I had muted the sound. I haven't.

I first noticed it when playing a video clip posted here and thought that it had been corrupted or something.

Then, on playing back the videos from my latest trip all was totally silent.

The only thing I have done differently recently is charging the new phone from the computer via a USB

Any suggestions please?

Well, it was the obvious, the audio lead disconnected, but I couldn't understand how until I traced it back through the whole rat's nest to find it isn't one lead, but 2, and somehow with me pushing stuff about the desk, it had come apart where one fits into another. It is a very loose connection and. I suppose, easily done.

But rarely enough not to be the first port of call. :ymblushing:

Glad you've sorted out the problem, David. Often it's the simplest thing that causes a problem but not always the first thing you think of :lol:

I did trace the audio lead from the monitor but it terminated, not on the floor behind the computer as you would expect, but on the desk next to the monitor. I couldn't see how it could have got pulled out accidentally and then placed neatly on the desk.

Thought I was sleep walking for a moment. :o

Then I discovered, and remembered, that I had extended it at some point and it was the extension that had pulled out, obviously as I moved stuff around the desktop. 8-|

While I've got your attention Sally, When transferring the sim to my new phone yesterday, I noticed that I still have your number on it. I think it is a fixed line so no doubt I can cancel it now since you moved?
