TFT monitor speakers - how do they work?

Do switched on TFT monitors having speakers connected via a audio cable need to be also connected with a VGA cable?

I have connected up a monitor to an audio source (computer and a ghetto blaster) but no VGA cable. The monitor speakers begin to sound out perfectly but then go dead after about 5/10 seconds.

I would have thought the speakers are just like ordinary stand alone external speakers (powered or not) and should work. Plugging in headphones into my computer work OK so why not the monitor speakers?

Can anyone explain what the difference could be please?

if the monitor doesn't detect a video signal in a set period of time it goes to sleep to conserve power and prolong the screen life. i would imagine that one of these with the speakers built in just shuts the whole monitor down speakers and all instead of having to just turn off the LCD and leave the speakers on

Go into the menu of your TFT monitor to see if you have any settings (on/off) for your monitor integrated speakers.

dsenette - yes your explanation seems to cover it - I didn't think of that - thanks.

Alzeimer - my monitor is very quiet even with all computer audio volumes turned up to max ( that's why I was checking it with my ghetto blaster) and your suggestion to check the monitor volume control in the monitor menu is good but that is not an option in the menu on mine unfortunately.

Thanks for your help.

I too prefer this suggestion.
