Question about Apple Mac/iMac&iPod Speakers-(Bondie-Blue) W/ Free CD/DVD Caddy-Limited Supply (p/n I-SPKR-BONDI) Computer Speakers
My macbook sound function is not working. when i press the volume up, volume down, or mute buttons, the volume icon appears, but below it is a different symbol, like on a 'no parking' sign, a circle with a line through it diagonally. i can't adjust the output volume under system preferences. the mute button is not clicked, but there also is not an option to click on it. that bar in the preferences pane is grey.
This also happened to me after unplugging some headphones. After reading this, I opted for putting the headphones back in instead of a toothpick. This fixed it.

I had the same problem this morning with the "no parking sign" and loss of volume. I ended up putting a toothpick in the headphone slot and moving it around, I immediately got my volume back.
Hope this helps.

I had this problem before - it could mean that there is something stuck in either the place where you plug in the power cord or another vital little hole on the mac - make sure a spec of lead or dust is not in there. Blow on it, fish out any pesky objects, and it will give you sound again.

If you're still getting sound, it's prob not a problem with the headphones (if you see a red light it is the headphones).
1. Open System Preferences 2. Go to the Sound Option 3. Select Output 4. Choose Internal Speakers
