SOURCE: No sound at all

My macbook- doesn't give out sound thru external speakers and no sound in headphones . I bearly hear the internal speakers either so I took it to Apple Genius (with appointment) and they tested my macbook with their software fr.Macbook Pro using ethernet cord and start playing music and my macbook speakers- internal and external are loud again. WOW! So it's the infested 3rd party software such as Limewire and all others that we love to downloaded (but there are too many to figure it out which one is bad)...SO I backed up my stuffs and reinstalled macos X tiger and all is new again....WORKING PERFECT NOW!!! RE-INSTALL!!!! Thanks Apple Store!!!!!!

Why does my lowrey organ not make a sound after I have switched it on?


This is a generic answer for this kind of question.
When there is no sound
Check the obvious.
Is there a light on the organ indicating it is on?
  • Plug it in to a known working wall socket, switch on at the wall
  • Switch on at the organ, check light
  • Very old keyboards need a voice to be selected!!
  • Turn master volume up
  • Turn any other volumes up
  • i.e. lower manual volume
  • upper manual volume
  • swell pedals down
Sometimes a sustain pedal plugged into a volume pedal socket will mute the output, check this.
Headphones out, most headphones will turn speakers off, sometimes the headphone switch can be dodgy, work the headphone plug in an out a few times
There maybe a switch that turns off the speakers, look near the output sockets
Software volumes up, check display, if any.
MIDI instruments, check local control is ON
Still no sound?
Can you hear anything from the speakers?
Hiss or hum usually means the speaker is ok
Total silence may indicate speaker failure, but only if there is one speaker, as in older home organs, or smaller keyboards
Try headphones next, TURN Down master volume first just in case!
If there is some sound, very quiet and gross distortion then possible power amplifier failure.
If your instrument has any kind of line out as well as a headphone jack, try these.
The line output will likely be a pair of phono sockets,like you have on HiFi equipment, 1/4 inch, 6.35mm jacks, like the bigger headphone connector, a 3.5mm socket like the smaller headphone connector, or even a DIN connector on older equipment.
Connect these to the aux (or Line or CD) input on your HiFi, guitar amp or similar. (some times these outputs will drive headphones, usually you will only hear anything in the left side). If this works then it is very likely the power amplifier.
Further tests on MIDI equipped keyboards would be to see if the MIDI does anything.
If MIDI out works and there is no sound, and MIDI in makes a sound this points to local being off, buried somewhere in the menu will be local on or off, make sure it is on.
If MIDI out doesn't work then the failure is likely to be internal power supply or something else critical (not nnecessarily major).
Power amplifier failures in newer, low power, keyboards are often the power amplifier chips (i.c,s), older amplifiers may have just blown their fuses but one or more output transistors may have failed.
Cost of repair will be down to the time it takes to get to the fault, taking these to bits and putting them back can take a lot longer than the repair.!
Hope this helps, Chris the Fader

Trying to get new headphones to cancel speakers on tv


What kind of headphones and TV are you trying to make work as an combined pair? It sounds to me as though you have your head phones plugged into the speaker location on the TV which could be a small hole that shows a pic of speakers. Look on the TV for an 'mic' or 'pic of headphones' holes. If there is an plug in hole with either it states mic or shows a pic of headphones plug the headphones into that hole instead of where you have them plugged into now.

Another suggestion is to use MDI cords in which you may already be using aka white, red, yellow colored plugs. If those plugs are assembled in the slots incorrect that also could be the reason as to why the headphones turn down when you turn the volume to the TV down; which also would influence the TV volume its self to also disengage to go either louder or quieter. MDI cords should be plugged in the following pattern to be categorized as the following with each color following the next color; yellow, white, red. Now if you are using MDI cords presently do you have them plugged in front or back of the TV?

If the TV has hole ports in both front and back for MDI cords then reverse your plug ins. Example: If you have them plugged in the front instead switch all three to the back of the TV or vise versa.

Also another thing; since you are wanting to use headphones for your TV speakers instead of the TV speakers themselves usually plugging headphones in are controlled by TV volume buttons; however I am assuming that you are trying to state that when you plug headphones into the TV you still hear the volume in your ears and anyone in the TV room is also still hearing the TV even though headphones are plugged in, am I right?

With you wanting to cancel the speakers on the TV out only attempted to use TV volume for speakers and without it working means you have the MDI cord plugged into the audio which would cause the TV to power the volume for the headphones anyways. May I ask this; since I am a bit confused, alright are you wishing for the headphones to be able to be loud enough so the TV only powers them for volume when you use the TV?

I know that headphones being plugged into an TV should only keep their volume within the ear buds. Therefore I have never heard of headphones being able to be loud enough to power out room sound. Instead they power internal volume which would be within your ears. Headphones were meant to keep noise and volume from surrounding a room to block room noise out and to keep the sound for your/ an own persons only listening capability. So because of this I am confused as to how ear phones would have the ability to sound the room with audio.

I can understand that if what you are trying to say is that the speakers on the TV still output volume even with head phones plugged in which would be an issue, since head phones are to capture the volume and noise from the unit in which plays aloud- to actually silence it instead- for the individual whom requires or presumes to have themselves to be the only listener.

Constant buzzing in my 15 W amplifier


Make sure you have a ground prong on your power cord. Most input jacks nowadays are closed circuit. They have a switch built in that won't allow any sound without the cord plugged in. You may have a damaged jack that will give you a loud hiss, a loud hum or crackling depending on what volume your controls are set at.

Sanyo LCD TV speaker hum at low volume


if the hum is only on the speaker s and not the headphones and you have tried the ground and ferrites I would suggest it is a amplifier problem. Either take it back for refund or plug a small set of amplified speakers into the headphone jack. i.e computer speakers or such- that will at least tell you if it is indeed the amplifier.

Hissing and poor sound quality


Well it could be interference from the TV, computer, or other 900Mhz device (some wireless routers run on this frequency).

I'm currently dealing with the same issue myself, if I find a solution I'll post back.
