Question about Computers & Internet
Sound is locked in mute in Mac air and it can not uncheked
At iPatch solutions, we see this problem WAY too often. I know this will sound silly but all you'll need to fix this issue is a can of compressed air (for dusting off electrical components). Is there a red light on inside the earphone jack? Usually that accompanies the muted volume but not always. Here are the steps to fixing it in about 2 minutes.
Step 1: Attach the little straw (there should be a small straw supplied with the can when you purchase it).
Step 2: Insert the opposite end of the straw inside the earphone jack. No need to jam it in there. Just so it is inside about 1/4".
Step 3: Start blowing short blasts of air into the jack. Don't worry, this will not harm the computer or void any warranty. As you do this, keep checking the volume. It WILL come back on. There was a small glitch when Apple installed the jacks (it has happened to my MacBook Air and my standard MacBook). Usually without even noticing, it happens sometime after using the jack. Not always right away and sometimes not even at all. Don't forget to vote after you try this. You're going to shocked at how fast your volume works again.
