hi Nobele thank you for that information i will give it a try,i dont suppose you have any ideas as to download net flix,got the app from amazon but the kindle won't let me install it
I think I've found the solution.
Use the volume buttons on the side of the device, not the volume control drop down on the screen. I always assumed they did the same thing, but the buttons on the side seem to control the volume within Skype, but the on-screen slider doesn't do anything.
In my Kindle HD, look different from waht you describe, I have just volume control in the back of tablet, and this is ok . I can rear the Eccho/Sound test, but I am not able to rear me,. I do not have other volume control in the screen.
