My Early 2009 aluminum macbook does not recognize headphones. when i plug in, noise continues to play through the speakers. When I sleep and wake it, the headphones are recognized. I am not sure about the other way around, but this is getting to be supremely annoying.

OS X :: Headphone Plugged In - Audio Port Not Working

Feb 1, 2009

My built in speakers work fine all the time, even when I have headphones plugged in. I looked under the output devices in the system settings and the only option is for built in audio output, a.k.a speakers, there is no option for an alternate audio output, a.k.a headphones. When I plug in my headphones nothing happens, sound continues out of the internal speakers like nothing happened.I have Mac OS X version 10.4.11.. iMac7,1.. 2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo 1b 667 mgz DDR2 SDRAM

Mac Pro :: Webcam Not Recognized On Wake From Sleep?

Mar 18, 2009

Just got my Mac Pro in yesterday. Hooray. I had purchased a logitech quickcam vision pro. It works fine in general. However, upon wake from sleep, the OS thinks that the camera is "in use by another application." In order to remedy the issue, I have to unplug/plug it back in. What the heck? There are no drivers for it as it's UVC or something like that.

ITunes For Mac :: Disabling From Automatically Starting When Headphone Plugged In

Dec 3, 2014

I have a Macbook Pro running OS X Yosemite Ver 10.10.1. Whenever I plug in my Apple headphone it in, the iTunes automatically starts and I would like to disable the same. I am talking on FaceTime using my head phone, (I am guessing some small movements of headphone triggering this) the  iTunes starts automatically and the songs start to play during the FaceTime call. 

Does any one know how to disable the iTunes from not starting up automatically, whenever a Headphone is inserted into Mac. I can start iTunes whenever I want like any other application. But I just don’t want any automatic starting of iTunes, when I plug the headphone!

Mac Pro, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)

MacBook :: Audio Output - Headphone Jack

Jul 9, 2009

I was using my 13" White Macbook (Spring 07) all day today, listening to music on headphones while working. I brought my computer over to a friend's house and attempting to line out some audio from Garage Band to speakers through the headphone jack and suddenly all audio began to have skips & spaces every second or so. I can still the hear songs but they are constantly interrupted. I tried Itunes & audio from the internet, and two different pairs of headphones I know work. Same problem every time. The strange thing is that the audio works perfectly out of the internal speakers. Has anyone had this same problem? I haven't seen anything on the web that was similar. I tried the Q-Tip/Toothpick trick suggested on a bunch of other threads. But I don't think it's an issue of the computer not adjusting to the headphone setting. Also tried to resetting the battery, but that didn't work either.

MacBook :: Headphone With Mic Not Working In Audio Input

Mar 23, 2012

This headphone/headset that is equipped with a mic does not work properly when I connect it to the audio input opening. The headphone/headset is only equipped with one plug (is this the proper term?). 

When I adjust the audio setting (apple icon--> System Preferences --> Sound --> select "Input" tab --> highlight " Line in; Audio line-in port") I can only hear sounds through the headphone but the mic portion does not pic up. If I hit the mic portion I see the bars move, that would indicate some sound being picked up. However, when I try to use the mic, through Mac Office Powerpoint 2010, the sound (if received through the mic) does not pick up. 

Why is this happening? Do I need some extra external component for the microphone part of the headset to work or do something extra in the System Preference area?

i have an intel macbook running leopard with the most recent update. A problem arose a day before the update was installed wherein my macbook no longer transmits sound through the headphone jack. i have no reason to suspect a hardware failure, there has been no damage to the computer. is there any way this could (please, god) be a software failure? and if so, one that i can fix?

MacBook Pro :: Headphone Audio Distortion - Whining Noise

Oct 13, 2008

I recently got my MBP and I noticed there's a issue with headphone audio distortion. When I plug in my earphone or headphone without any sound playing, there's a clear whining noise like zi zi zi sound which is really clear, sounds like old 80s radio noise. When I play the music, of course it was covered by the sound of music but it really bugs me out knowing that I cannot listen the pure sound of my music. The volume of this distortion noise would not change while I turn up or down the volume of my MBP. I asked someone professional, he said it's a famous issue of screen frequency disturbing audio in macbook pro.

MacBook :: Using Audio - Speakers Don't Work Headphone/external Does

Jan 18, 2010

The audio on my macbook suddenly stopped working. When I click on the audio adjuster, it won't even let me change the level (the little circle is white now, not blue).

But when I plug in headphones or an external speaker, everything works fine. I can once again adjust the audio and get sound

There was a red light eminating from the audio out jack for a while (last couple of days) but today, there is no longer a red light. Still no audio from the speakers.

I just bought the brand new macbook pro 13" lowest grade and do a lot of simple recording. My old macbook had both an audio in and out. one labeled headphones and one with the two triangles pointing toward the circle. It was expressed to me that this new one jack could support audio out and in as labeled by apples tech specs. I tried hooking up my synthesiser to the port yet garageband did not recognize an audio in port, nor did the computer.

MacBook Air :: Does The Headphone Socket Support Audio In Via IPhone Headphones

Nov 21, 2009

I could answer this myself tomorrow morning by trying it out on my fianc�e's new MBA but it's in the bedroom and she's asleep. Chances are I'll forget by tomorrow so I figured I'd ask here.

My Unibody MacBook Pro (Rev A) can use the microphone in my iPhone headphones when they're plugged into the audio out port. The volume controls on the headphones also work. Is this also true for the audio out socket on the MBA?

If yes then it should be pretty easy to make a mono audio input source by hacking an old set of iPhone headphones. I'll probably just get some kind of USB audio in adapter but this could always be an option.

MacBook :: Audio Device Freezing And Delicate Headphone Jack?

Apr 9, 2010

I am using a unibody MacBook (non-Pro). I have 2 issues, the first one is that whenever I plug in an audio device such as headphones or speakers while iTunes is playing, the song will freeze for about 30 seconds. The computer gets very laggy and iTunes freezes. Not even the media/volume buttons on the keyboard work. I am running Snow Leopard 10.6.3 and iTunes 9.1 (79). ALSO i have another problem I have been having since I got the MacBook I'm sure. I plug in a device into the standard headphone jack, and it just kind of sits there half plugged in (like not clicked in all the way). And so i have to push it to make it actually work, but here's the thing, if I'm listening to music in bed for example or on a slightly non-solid surface the headphones will just "pop out"! ... Like not literally but they will come out a slight bit and then the audio starts playing through the internal MacBook speakers. I'm pretty sure (but don't quote me on it) that Apple earphones do not pop out. If this is some sort of technique Apple is using to get me to buy their headphones then forget about it. I love to listen to music so I need my nice headphones. BTW the headphones I am using DO NOT "pop out" of any other audio device I own. In fact I can hang my iPod Touch from them without them coming out or loosing connection. Most audio devices I plug into the MacBook have the same problem, except the Apple branded iPod headphones as I mentioned earlier.

MacBook :: Headphone Tip Broken And Stuck Inside Audio Plug?

Jul 29, 2010

The tip of my headphones broke while connected to the macbook, my computer has this tip inside the audio plug and plays sounds on the useless lineout. There is no way to remove that thing (I tried everything, including matches with a bit of superglue). The only solution I see to get the sound back to the internal speakers is to disable the lineout.

MacBook Pro :: Get Audio To Receiver With Higher Quality Than The Headphone Jack?

Apr 29, 2012

I recently got a receiver and surround sound speaker system.  The quality of the audio from the CD player connected to it is far beyond the quality of the audio that comes from the MacBook pro via headphone jack to RCA connection.  This was confirmed by burning a CD from the MacBook, placing it in the CD player then testing the two against each other  -  the same audio piece from the CD player or the MacBook, both connected to the same receiver/speaker set up.  What other options might get better audio quality from the MacBook to the receiver?

MacBook :: Plugged In During Sleep

Apr 5, 2010

Just wondering, whenever I use my macbook unibody at home, I have it plugged in most of the time. When I take it to school, I don't bring my plug. When I go to sleep, I generally unplug it and put the macbook to sleep. Should I keep it plugged in even though I closed the lid whilst I sleep during the night? Or should I keep unplugged it every night when I close the lid?Also, I do calibrate my battery once a month. its at 93% after 43 cycles.

MacBook Pro :: After Speakers Plugged In / Audio Dies

May 28, 2010

This only happens occasionally, but sometimes when I have my speakers plugged into my 2010 macbook pro, the sound just dies. If I unplug the speakers the sound comes through the built in speakers, but the only way for me to get the jack to work again is by restarting my computer.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is it a hardware or a software issue?

MacBook Pro :: Why Won't Audio Work With Headphones Plugged In

Mar 8, 2012

I've had my mac for a couple months short of a year. A few weeks ago, I needed to record a quick idea for a melody my guitarist and I had. I was aware that the I/O jack were one and the same in the 2011 MBP model, so I changed my settings to allow me to use it as an input jack. No problem.The problem, though, is that I can't use it as an output jack anymore. Audio plays fine through the built in speakers but turns into static when I change the I/O setting to output and plug my headphones in.
