Mac Pro :: Sound Volume Does Not Change By Keyboard Control

Apr 2, 2012

OS X Lion, output: Cinema Display.Volume doesn't change by control keys on keyboard. But it does with software volume control (on iTunes, for example). When I press control buttons on keyboard, volume icon on display appears and changes - but not the volume. It lets me know that buttons are working, and Mac recognizes that.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

Applications :: Control ITunes Volume (not System Volume) From Apple Aluminum Keyboard?

Oct 20, 2009

I have a Mac Pro and not too long ago I swapped from a fat, heavy and filthy white Apple Keyboard to a new skinny silver one. I like it, and also love that the F7-9 Skip Back-Pause/Play-Skip Forward keys work for iTunes, even when another app is active (what's the word I'm looking for - in focus or whatever). But I use Optical output, so the volume keys (F10-12) don't do anything. I know that, when iTunes is the active app, I can command-+/- to change the volume, but I'd love to be able to map the F10-12 keys to do that - without having to have iTunes active (playing, but not the active window).

OS X :: Linking Keyboard Volume Control To App Volume Controls?

Dec 14, 2008

I was wondering if anyone knows how to do this- it is a pita to adjust separate volume controls on everything. If I adjust the volume on the keyboard, the volume slider in itunes doe snot move. If I set the volume on itunes with a mouse, then come home and use the volume controls on my keyboard, I have to also manually adjust the slider in itunes. Anyway to link the two?

Apr 17, 2012

since a few weeks, we regularly experience that the sound volume control does not show up in the screen title bar, and we cannot play music in iTunes or in youtube. I don't know if this is since i attached a usb Time machine backup disk or since when i upgraded from 10.7.2 to 10.7.3 The only way out is rebooting and then this works again, The sound volume control is back and i can listen music.

Applications :: Pro Keyboard Volume Control Not Working

Oct 22, 2003

sometime this week the volume control on my pro keyboard stopped working. you can hear the "pip" noise when you hit the louder / softer buttons on the keyboard but the level doesn't change. i am still on good terms with my mute control, however.i have to resort to using the sound control in system preferences instead to increase or decrease the volume (sigh!)

i am running 10.2.8 and at about the same time as this problem occurred, I'd upgraded quicktime and think maybe it's the culprit, but before i waste a few hours playing sherlock holmes.

MacBook Pro :: After Update Keyboard Shortcuts For Volume Control Not Working

Mar 12, 2012

I recently ran an update for my Macbook Pro. After the update, the volume keyboard shortcut does not work.I have the setting for the function keys to work like normal function keys so I have to press the fn key to change the volume. This does not work and changing the setting does not work. I cannot add a shortcut either. Whenever I push the shortcut, I get a grayed out screen with a symbol showing that I cannot change the volume. I can still make changes by clicking on the volume symbol at the top of my screen but I really need the shortcut back.

PowerPC :: Powerbook Cracking Sound When Change Volume

Sep 10, 2008

I have a Powerbook 1.5GHz 15.2" with mac os x 10.5.4 and yesterday while cleaning the computer I noticed something weird. With computer unplugged from the power source, i turned it on and increased the volume when the desktop come on. Before I could hear the alert sound when you change the volume there was another sound, like 3 lower volume pops, the normal sound it makes when you change the volume. Then I turned off the computer plugged in all the cables and power source and turned on and then when I changed the volume I only hear the normal alert sound when changing the volume. It only happened when the computer was running on battery.

OS X :: How To Change Volume Keyboard Shortcut

Feb 28, 2010

I used the migration assistant to move most of my stuff from my old MBP to my new one, but that seems to have had the strange effect of keeping the keyboard settings for the old MBP. Very simply, I'd like to set f12 to increase volume, F11 to decrease etc. but I can't work out where I would change those settings. I've been able to change things like expose and dashboard, but this is proving to be a pain in the backside.

OS X :: Volume Opens The Window For Expose And Does Not Control Volume Monitor Brightness?

Mar 9, 2010

Recently, my newer (last year) iMac probably running 10.5 started speaking and wont shut up... there is no obvious way to turn it off. I usually figure problems out myself but there are no system preferences that effect it. I even changed the voice in preferences as a test and it is still the same guy reading everything clicked in all applications except when I am in system preferences so far. Usually when I run into a dead end like this there is some mystery key command that works... anyone know?I also noticed that some of the top line (f) keys are not doing what they are supposed to any longer as well... volume up opens the window for expose & spaces it looks like and does not control the volume monitor brightness controls are not working either... I went to the key and mouse preferences and set the key strokes to default and still the same.

OS X :: Volume Control Is Gone From My Computer?

Jun 19, 2009

My volume control is gone from my computer.

I have no sound and even when I go into system preferences it is set on max and to show on desktop but it is in grey and unchangeable.

No sound comes out of any program and my itunes won't even play songs much less me being able to hear them. Isn't there some way for me to go back in time and have my computer reset everything as it was last week?

OS X :: Default Volume Control On Mac Book Pro

Nov 5, 2010

I was wondering if there is anyway to change the default volume setting on my Mac Book Pro? When I plug my headset or earbuds into my Mac Book Pro, the volume automatically increases to half way. Which in some cases, actually most cases, its blasting. I've adjusted the volume in system preferences and nothing works. Is there a terminal command or a change to a Plist to control this before I?m forced to sue Apple for causing my deafness?

OS X :: How To Control The Volume Of Applications Independently Of Each Other

Nov 4, 2009

Vista and 7 have built in functionality to allow the user to control the application volumes independently of each other. For example, if I'm watching a video, and also am browsing websites that randomly emit noise, it allows you to mute your web browser while still having sound from your video. Can this be done in Mac OS X? Or are there free programs?

I work online through a website that has annoying and non-essential sound, so I want to mute this in order to listen to music through iTunes.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Volume Control Not Working

Apr 10, 2012

Using Lion, latest and fully updated.  At some point in the past week or so the volume control stopped having an effect.  Using either the keyboard function keys or the item in the task bar, the graphics look good and the blocks/slider move around just fine, but there is no effect whatsoever on sound output.  I can control the volume in whatever app I'm using, whether it's a Web app or local app with its own volume control. But the system volume controls no longer have an effect.  This is true whether or not I'm using the display output or headphones.

MacBook Pro :: Volume And Brightness Control Disappeared?

It seems that the control keys for brightness (default F1 & F2 keys) and volume (default F3, F4 and F5 keys) have moved to another key combination. Don't ask me what I've done . I already tried Fn, but that did not help.

Does any know how to rearrange the keys to the default keys?

MacBook Pro :: Volume Control Only Works With Headphones?

Feb 13, 2010

When my headphones are plugged in I can use the volume control keys on the keyboard to adjust the volume just fine. But when I unplug my headphones the volume display goes dim, my volume control keys no longer work, and my speakers will not play sound.

The problem started last week. The computer has never been dropped and I won't even bring liquid near it so I know neither of those caused this.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Intel Mac :: Volume Control No Longer Works?

Feb 27, 2012

Still using the iMac we purchased about 5 years ago, and it's working fine. About a year ago, the numeric keypad on our wired keyboard stopped working. Anytime one of the keys was pressed on the number pad, the whole computer would freeze completely, and would have to be restarted.

A few weeks ago, we decided to stop tolerating this, and purchased a new wired keyboard with the numeric keypad. The numbers still don't work, and all the F buttons don't either. The volume controls don't work, and I've tried reconfigurating them. But they only end up working in iTunes.

We plugged back in the old keyboard and the same thing happened. Number pad doesn't work and the volume controls, etc. don't work.

Called Apple and they told me to call the store. So I called the Apple store we purchased the keyboard from, and they had no idea. Just told me to return the keyboard...

I don't want to have to try installing programs to get this to work. It really should be simpler than that.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Bluetooth Blocks Volume Control?

Mar 18, 2012

I am having fun with my iMac (late 2011 + 10.7.3) aspecially with software bugs.One of them is following:Volume controll keys on my wireless keyboard do not controll sound. Doesn,t matter which one I press I do see the icons on the display but there is no effect on volume level. The sound "speaker icon" on the system bar is inactive and when I press it I see that slider is frozen at the very bottom and can't be moved.Switch your iMac off.Remove batteries from the wireless keyboard.Switch your Mac on.Sound is back, and after placing batteries back in your keyboard you can see also that sound keys are working again. Unfortunatelly you have to make this operation each time when you switching your iMac off.

OS X :: External Audio Device With Internal Volume Control?

Sep 16, 2007

I have a slight problem with my volume controls on a Macbook Pro. They're not doing exactly what I want them to. I have an external sound card and by selecting it as my default audio device the macbook pros own volume control gets locked and there's no way to adjust it. This means that it renders the keyboard and Remote control volume buttons useless and I still have to run across the room to adjust the volume on my audio device when I'm watching a movie through the tv away from the macbook. Is there no way to enable this function anyway so both controls work?

MacBook Pro :: Lost Volume Control When Headphones Are Plugged In?

May 19, 2012

When I first bought my MBP (January 2012) I had this problem; plug in headphones, and I lose the ability to control the volume using the keyboard controls.Over the phone, Apple had me do a PRAM reset. After that it only happened sometimes, with a regular reboot solving the problem. It happened again today. I did a PRAM reset again because I'm sick to death of the little ******** issues I have with this MBP. (I've brought it into an Apple store, they kept it for a week and said nothing was wrong with it.)  

The PRAM reset got it working ... then I plugged in the headphones. They still worked while they were plugged in, but when I unplugged them. Gone.BUT, not only are they gone for the MBP's speakers, they're gone for the headphone as well this time. AND, not only are the keyboard volume controls not working now, but the little volume slider at the top of my desktop isn't working either. I did a regular roboot, it solved it, until I plugged in my headphones.  But it gets better, the keyboard buttons work if I'm using my headphones and listening to something on YouTube, but they don't work if I'm listening to iTunes. And that's only the headphones, MBP speakers non-responsive in either case. 

I do get the little pop-up interface that shows you the volume going up and down or if it's muted, it even gives me that little chime everytime I click the buttons, it's just not doing anything except looking pretty. I can control the volume either by using the volume slider in iTunes (or whatever application), as well as by going to System Prefrences, clicking on Sounds, and controlling it using the Output Volume slider.
