Question about Apple MacBook Air

1 Answer

I've lost the function of my internal speakers after unplugging headphones. As others here have suggested. plugging them in and unplugging a few times has solved that issue for me. Right now, however, I'm experiencing a different kind of audio loss on my macbook air. My software is fully updated and the audio was working 10 minutes ago. I was watching a movie in quicktime, no headphones in sight, and I paused it. When I restarted the movie, the audio was gone and I can no longer control volume using the keyboard's built in volume buttons. A circle with a strike through it appears below the volume meter, which itself is greyed out. In system preferences under audio, my internal speakers are no longer registered. I tried to open garage band and I get the message "selected driver not found - 10202" which I've seen discussed in other forums. I'm attempting the solutions others have posted here. This is odd, though, and out of the blue.

Sounds like either your sound card has died, or Mac OS X cannot find it. I suggest taking it to the Genius Bar at your local Apple Retail Store, or try reinstalling Mac OS X with the DVD's that came with your MacBook Air.
Hope all goes well!

Lost sound in left channel?


I presume you are playing a stereo cd. Plug some other device, like headphones in to see if the computer is putting out stereo. Use the same plug as the speaker system is plugged into.
I presume you have swapped the speakers to test them.
If the speakers work, and the headphones work, it's the amp.

Headphone jack not working


Hi,

I find that there is a problem with your headphone speaker.
Try with some other headphone, even if it is not working, then you need to take it to the service center.

if you go to the bios (restart computer and press del to go to setup) you should be able to look around and find the option for internal speaker. Set that option to disable and do not change anything else unless you know your way around. Save it and restart afterwards and it should disable the internal speakers.

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngYour front panel audio / microphone connector has an AC97 connector inside which looks like this:

It is probably plugged into the motherboard somewhere. Try plugging it into the soundcard directly if it is in the motherboard. Or vice versa if it is plugged into the soundcard.

The bypass switch in the headphone jack is likely broken. NEVER unplug the headphones while the amp is on.

There are certain small amps that have a possibilty of popping the power amp due to a feedback arrangement. Likewise, never use the headphone jack for ANYTHING other than headphones.

Sound is working but internal speaker is not working


Connecting headphones to the system will disabled the internal speakers until the headphone jack is disconnected, at which such time the internal speakers should function again.

If you disconnect the headphones and the internal speakers are not re-activated, then there may be damaged to the microswitch in the jack. (Try rebooting after the headphones are disconnected too)

Nothing is wrong. Most computers automatically turn off the internal seakers after the external seakers are connected. Go to cntrol pannel and see what you can do under audio options or some such equivelent. Check back with more problems,
hope this helped/helps.
