Hello,
I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
Does your input source contain audio? If so, try plugging some headphones into the audio out jack to test if it is working. Try a different input source if you can't hear anything.
If you have connected a laptop to the projector, it will only contain a display signal - laptops do not output an audio signal through the VGA or HDMI connections.
To set Eco mode using the remote, press the Menu button and go to Options - Lamp Settings - Lamp Mode - ECO.
