Question about Apple Powerbook G4 17" 1.67 GHz SuperDrive Mac Notebook
All right people have a bunch of really short solutions to these problems that aren't really solutions on this site. They just seem to be like yo somethings wrong with your computer. It might be your firmware. Well try this... Zap the PRAM
1. Shut Down.
2. Start up and hold cmd + opt. + p + r
3. While holding this the computer should start up and
automatically restart your computer again while still holding it.
Upon the second start it should Make a Chime and the sound should come back. If not then its not your firmware. It Might be that you threw away your built in speaker prefs. or the speaker shorted and u need a new one. To test this plug in your headphones to see if they work. If not then you have an internal software problem and you should take it to a technician. He may have to reload your system so back everything up. And be ready with the Mac start up discs that were given with the computer. Hope this helps. I'm going through the same thing right now with my G4 and am at the point where I need a tech. I may just buy a new Comp. (I love my G4 though)

clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is
no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit
