ThinkPad T470+dock -> no sound on monitor

2020-09-13, 14:25 PM

Just purchased a LG 27UL500-W 4K HDR monitor that has built-in speakers. My ThinkPad is connected to it via the Pro Dock (40A1) DisplayPort and there is no sound - tried on both windows and linux.

 

In the control panel the sound is supposedly transferred by HDMI but there is no way to change that.

 

Any ideas?

Solved! See the solution

AFAIK this display do NOT have any built-in speakers. But it has a headphone out jack. You could connect some external speakers to this port.
