Macbook line-in is phase-inverted

The built-in line-in on my new macbook makes every recording phase-inverted.
I've tried the same external audio source on another computer and it was normal.

Have you checked the software preferences of your sound editing software? Seems to me there are some options to reverse the phase with in certain software applications.

Hi my MacBook pro screen isn't working. Any solutions?


Have you connect your macbook to an external monitor? If this works then it might not be too bad (lcd inverter) but if no signal comes to the external monitor then it might be bad. Try this 1st before doing anything else.

Microsoft Office needs to be compatible with the external microphone. Just because your MacBook recognizes the mic through the adapter doesn't mean OneNote does.

Okay I have a 2008 MacBook and my boyfriend bought me the Bose Companion #2 Speakers and the speakers sound out of phase when I up the volume. It sounds horrible from a different room you can even hear it...


Hi.
I would get an external sound card running on either USB (minimum 2.2) or firewire. I have had problems with mac audio ports. M-audio make a good range and so do ION. You need a stereo 2 in 2 out minimum (no need to overspend unless you plaun on starting a home recording or video project).
I would check to make sure there is no kind of phase switch on the speakers in anyway first though.

Digital Audio out in MACBOOK PRO.


Connect external speakers, headphones, or optical digital audio equipment. The headphone / line output jack accommodates optical digital audio output, analog audio output with a 24-bit, 44.1-192 kHz D/A converter, digital audio output up to 24-bit stereo and 44.1-192 kHz sampling rate and supporting encoded digital audio output (AC3 and DTS). For analog headphone / line output a standard audio cable with 3.5mm metal plug should be used. For digital audio, a standard Toslink cable with a Toslink mini-plug adapter can be used.
You can find the Digital to Analog converted:

your audio are not in interface with your macbook it means to say, the common wire are not in the same connection. that why you only hear sound on your left headphone. in short your firewire audio is not compatible with your macbook. but you can rewire it with same audio plug. or replace the audio plug with the compatible one. when you do this, make sure that the common wire of your firewire audio and your macbook are in the same connection.

M-audio firewire 410 on macbook


Use a 'Y' splitter. Usually from balanced to unbalanced. Also try looking at your device's control panel and see if you can change the channel options from mono to stereo. Beta drivers are for testing purposes, so try the signed driver also.

No screen activity on startup


hi wa_flyboy,

I suggest you first do a test to determine if it is your macbook's screen or graphics processor which is at fault. To do this you need to connect an external display to your macbook.

The macbook has a mini-DVI port for connection to external displays. Depending on the connector of the external display you use to do the test, you are either going to need a mini-DVI to DVI adapter (for a DVI display) or a mini-DVI to VGA adapter (for a VGA display). These adapters are sold separately by Apple, see http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore.woa/wa/RSLID?nnmm=browse&mco=669DFFE0&node=home/shop_mac/mac_accessories/displays

If an image is displayed on the external display after you have connected it to your macbook, you know that the screen of your macbook is faulty. In this case it would be an economical option to take the macbook to a repair shop where a technician can determine the faulty component (either one of the following display components of a TFT LCD screen can fail over time; the inverter, the backlight or the cabling). These can be replaced under warranty or they can order new ones if the warranty has expired.

If the external display shows the same symptoms as your macbook's display, it is the macbook's graphics processor which is at fault. I'm sorry to inform you that I think this is the cause of your macbook's display problem. Replacing the graphics processor of your macbook entails replacing the motherboard.
If the macbook is still under warranty I suggest you replace it and let technicians migrate your data from your current macbook's hard disk to your new one.
If the warranty of your macbook has expired, it's a more economical option to buy a new one and migrate your data to the new macbook. This will only cost a few dollars more than the cost of replacing the faulty motherboard (including the service costs of the repair shop to which you take your macbook), but is still more economical seeing as how you get a new machine which has a full warranty.

I hope this is helpful information and thanks for using the FixYa services
Kind Regards
