Screeching speakers

Very frustrated. Purchased my playbook specifically to watch movies, listen to music and read my books while traveling. I'm currently in Brussels and I cannot watch movies or listen to music.


When I open my movie (video) or music all appears to be normal but I don't hear anything except a 'medium' piercing screeching sound.


I did notice this happened ONCE while watching a youtube video, but then after I closed it the speakers/sound worked OK for music (I hadn't tried movies again at this point).  Now, no sound works (even the 'sounds' associated with games is 'screechy').


Please - does anyone know what to do?
