Question about Apple MacBook Air

No Sound From Internal Speakers

Sound works when speakers or headphones are plugged in. No sound without them. I know the internal speakers work because I can hear the internal bong when it is booting up.

Tried so far - rebooting; rebooting with speakers in the jack then removing; removing battery; inserting a bobby pin, q-tip half, paper clip and plastic tube of a pen and "wiggling" them around. Not sure if I'm wiggling properly though.

Still getting the same thing that no device is selected. Can someone give me more specific wiggling instructions?

The sound has stopped working on our GeoSafari LAPTOP No. 8545. Help!


Hi Lisa,
What operating system are you using?
Check that sound is enabled in both the operating system and BIOS.
Check that you have the volume turned up.
If you have an external set of speakers, try plugging them in and see if you get sound. If the external speakers use a power supply, make sure you have the speakers powered and turned on. Computer speakers almost always require power to run the internal amplifier. Computers sound output is so low that regular speakers can not be used. Also, if you have a set of headphones from an iPod or similar device try the headphones. Headphones are sensitive enough to work without power.

No headphone sound, but internal speaker works fine.


Hello,

Hello,

It is because that your internal speaker is the default play back device other than your head phone or external speaker.

Need to go to your sound setting.

Depend on your operating system, click Start, then click Control panel, then click Hardware and Sound, click Sound.

Under Playback tab, select your external speaker or head phones as default device.

I cannot get sound from my internal speakers on dell d600 latitude. Headphones work and sound comes out of internal speakers briefly when pulling jack plug out? So I know they work but just cannot get...


This sounds like a defective audio port. In normal operation, plugging in a headphone plug breaks the connection to the speakers. On your laptop, when you pull out the plug it makes a connection, but only briefly. Unfortunately the audio port is built into the system board. I don't think you will find a software fix for this problem. Your best bet is to get a USB sound device for external speakers.

Sound only works with headset. No longer comes


If the sound is working through another device then it seems that the internal speakers are bad. Because if the sound card was bad you wouldn't have any sound whatsoever, same goes for drivers. Probably just some bad speakers. If you have some other external speakers try plugging them into the headphone port and see if that helps.

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)

Stereo Speaker troubleshooting


It sounds like the audio jack itself has internal damage. Depending on how it is mounted on your laptop case, or possibly on an internal circuit board inside the laptop; it might be possible to repair the jack or replace with a new 1/8" audio jack. Some soldering skill may be required after disassembling the laptop and getting access to the jack.

No sound from speakers


Believe it or not, not all speaker plugs, even if they are of the same size are NOT made the same.Some times the "male" PLUG pushes into the "female" socket in such a way that it makes NO connection or does not make the right connection causing the headphones not to work.
TEST: play music that u can hear through the internal laptop speakers, and while the music is playing, plug in the headphones.
The internal speakers SHOULD cut out, and under normal conditions the music should pass through the headphones.
If the speakers cut out and the headphones don't work, your plug is damaged.
If the speakers DON'T cut out after u plug in the headphones, your plug is open.
Depending on the audio circuit, your audio amp. inside the laptop is going to get damaged.
It depends on the WAY the audio circuit was made.
