Play an audio file with VLC to see if the static is present at the beginning of play ..... if so there is possibly a fix for it
I don't know how it would be possible since I have no audio files on this at all. I have wallpapers I have downloaded and a picture of my granddaughter but no music files. Besides that my cd/dvd drive won't even start to play a music cd. I have a separate thread on here about that--it DID play before I took it over to the shop where they "fixed" it royally although it had static but now it won't make a peep.
Oh wait, my son in law just sent me a little video of the baby and it played in vlc. It played it fine but there is a little static in it.
