MacBook Sound Problems

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.

    sound on one of my students' computers stopped, and when you attempt to turn the sound up, you see under the volume line an "anti" or "non" circle with a slash through it. help!

    I have the same problem, and my internal mic isn't working either. Maybe these problems are connected? I'm not comfortable sticking toothpicks into a $2000 machine.

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.

    i have been struggling with this for months, finally realised the answer was probably online somewhere -just blew in my headphone socket (which had a red light on) and the light went off and the problem resolved ... thanks

  • karaff Feb 08, 2011

    This worked great - just took out the power cord and blew on it. Sound is back!

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
Done.

    This was very helpful. I didn't see any light. I tried inserting the headphone jack a few times and that didn't work. I put a tooth pick in and wiggled it in both the headphone and microphone jack (not cramming it in, just wiggle) and that worked like a charm. I was skeptical about that when I read it, but it worked.

  • kellyojo May 13, 2011

    I fully thought my macbook speakers & microphone was stuffed. All I had to do, though, was change my input and output that I had messed with a few days earlier! woops.

Do s-150 usb digital speakers work for mac?


Hi, I had this problem too but thankfully I figured it out after a investigating a few settings. I was very frustrated because the light came on and the buttons would manipulate my MacBook Pro and MacBook sound, but nothing came out of the speakers. Solution:1.) Click on System Preferences, 2.) Choose "Sound", 3.) Select the "Output" button in the middle of the top bar, 4.) in the selectable menu, choose USB (of course your speakers must be plugged in for this to show). Tada! You can even balance the Left and Right speakers in this menu. Hope that works for you too!

Tip

How to diagnose and fix sound problem for a desktop or a laptop


Check the Speaker Connections and Volume Control Settings
Step 1
Verify that the lack of sound is not due to faulty speaker connections. A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound.

Step 2
Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray.

Step 3
Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, uncheck them. If this doesn't work, read on.

Perform a System Restore If Necessary
Step 1
If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."

Step 2
Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."

Step 3
Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.

Delete and Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers
Step 1
Deleting and reinstalling your sound driver may resolve the problem. Your sound driver may have been corrupted or may be missing. The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps.

Step 2
Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."

Step 3
Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.

Step 4
Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery CDs that came with your Windows XP system.

Step 5
Visit your computer manufacturer's official website. Check for any updated sound driver software for your sound card. If any, download them along with the installation instructions.

How can i get sound in my pc.. i have lost the sound or volume


Check you have not accidently muted the sound on the desktop icon ( speaker icon)
Check the (green?) line connector is plugged into the correct port on the sound card or chip
Check that the audio driver appears in the sounds tab in the control panel (double click sound icon)

If the driver is missing, re-install it

Also while in there, check the tabs for the volumr mixer etc and see volume is set at max for line out

If those steps fail, check the speakers are getting power and the indicator light is on

Finally, test the soundcard with another speaker, or use headphones if no speakers available

No sound on macbook


That's a problem with the sound card. Had the same issue on a new MB and called Apple. Ended up sending the MB and Apple replaced the sound card and it has been working well since.
