Logic Studio / Pro :: Input Channel Options Greyed Out On List
Looking at a channel strip, when I click the Input section to select an input channel, all items on my list are greyed out. Screenshot: [URL]. My MOTU828 is registering with Logic because the outputs show up. Also in Audio Midi Setup all inputs and outputs show up. This started after upgrading to 9.

IWeb 09 :: Window Won't Load - All Menu Options Are Greyed-out?
I've used iWeb before (with a web site set-up), but I tried to open it today and the iweb screen would not open. The program menubar loads, but almost everything,including New Page and New Site are greyed out.

I checked my ME account and it is active and working.

Not sure what the problem is here - any ideas?

IMac Intel :: Access Webcam - ISight - Under Yahoo Messenger Preferences Video Section Is Greyed Out
My wife and I share an iMac, but have separate log ons. Recently we discovered that although I can access the webcam (iSight) under her Yahoo messenger preferences the video section is greyed out instead of saying built-in iSight. I've checked under USB in the utilities folder and the iSight is there on both.

MacBook Pro :: Sound Icon Greyed Out?
this problem just started for me a couple days ago.  I cannot tell what action causes it, but now restarting and resetting my PRAM settings does not fix it.  I also tried a fix I read where I created a login item that resets the audio.  I ALSO tried plugging in headphones. I am running OSX Lion 10.7.4.

MacBook Pro :: Speaker Icon Greyed Out At Boot?
Macbook Pro 13' (late 2011, I think) and its operating system. I am having problem with the speakers. I had no trouble with it when I bought in December 2011, even when I updated the OS 10.7.4. But when I upgraded its RAM from 4gig to 8, that was when trouble started. Everytime I boot, the speaker icon is visible at the start, but when the wifi and battery icons appear, the speaker icon greys out. No sound come out from the speakers. When I checked the speaker section in the System Preference, the buttons are also greyed out.

OS X Tiger :: Mail Preferences Options Disappeared
My Mail program has recently seemed to be allowing a great deal of Junk into my inbox. I was told to go to Mail - Preferences and take a look at various settings. But when I go Mail - Preferences, the only item that appears is a Fonts & Colours pane, nothing else at all. This is clearly concerning. When I went to Mail-Get Info, I saw that the original Mail app had been created in 2005 and modified on 29th September, 2009 at 10.17. That was the date /time of automated Software update from Apple. How to re-establish all my Mail Preferences options - whilst also helping me ensure I don't lose all my Accounts / Settings / Mails en route.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Make Changes To System HD - Partition Layout Greyed Out
I recently reformatted my entire drive and reinstalled Lion with the official Lion USB recovery tool/usb. Now in disk utility the Partition Layout option is greyed out and I can not seem to re partition my disk. Ive tried repairing my disk rights but still its greyed out.

I ran a demo of iPartition and this message was flagged:

"You cannot make changes to the disk from which your system booted.

To make changes to this disk, you should either boot from an external drive, use Target Disk Mode with another Mac, or create a bootable CD/DVD."Does this mean I can only make changes with it when booting with the usb? This doesnt make sense as it worked on the default startdisk before. Does anyone have solution?

MacBook Pro :: Two-sided Printing Option Greyed-out HP OfficeJet 7500a
I just bought a HP OfficeJet 7500a (which does support duplex printing) and I am unable to do two-sided printing as the dropdown menu (located in layout in the print screen) is greyed-out. Do I require a driver or anything like that? 

By the way I am running Mountain Lion Developer Preview if that matters.

Snow Leopard :: Appearance Options In System Preferences Occasionally Resetting?
Im running SL 10.6.4 and I have recently reinstalled the software hoping it would solve this issue but unfortunately hasn't.

To simply describe it, by Appearance settings reset themselves to the default values and open and newly opened programs revert to the original settings.

I have my settings set up as follows: [URL]

And when it resets itself, it reverts to the following (with all programs changing too): [URL]

Interestingly enough, every time it happens, I catch this message in the Console:

System Preferences9952: .scriptSuite warning for result type of command 'timedLoad' in suite 'SystemPreferences': the type NSNumber ('long') doesn't match the result Apple event code ('doub').

Does anyone kno what error is concurring? And does anyone know of a way to possibly fix it? I reset my PRAM and delete the System Preferences plist in addition to re-installing SL, hoping it was a corrupted Preference file, but that didn't work either.

Final Cut Pro :: Video Check Box In Import Settings Is Greyed Out
I am using a Sony Handycam HDR-SR5E with final cut pro (v7.0l). When logging and transferring my recent files I found i only imported the sound. So returning to the log and transfer window, and checking on the import settings i notice the check boxes are grayed out and the video box is unchecked.I have no idea what I have done, some of the files will allow me to import video, but the files i really need won't. Just retested the camera and the file i just recorded will allow me to import the video. Any ideas, i want to avoid making the same mistake again and ideally would like to get the video out of the camera.

MacBook :: Logic Express 8 Missing Options / Options Missing Under Master Tab
I have seen a few videos about mastering and gave it a try myself. It can be done by clicking the master tab, then going to the Input 1-2 column setting and then clicking setting - mastering, etc.When I first did this a few weeks ago, there were many options such as hip hop mastering, electronic mastering, etc.Now, when I do so, I have different - much less enticing options and have no idea where the good ones went.

1. How to I get it greyed in to delete it?

2. If I need to log off first, how do I even get to it to do that?

OS X :: Sleep Is Greyed Out In Apple Menu
I installed and uninstalled Aqua Connect Trial today (Terminal Server / Remote Desktop for Mac) and I'm fairly certain I now have 2 major issues because of it.Googled for the past hour for a solution but found nothing so far.

- in the menu the Sleep item is greyed out. I cannot click it, the keyboard shortcut for sleep doesn't work and pressing the power button does nothing

- all my animations aren't smooth anymore like expose, dock, dashboard, etc

I'm pulling my hair out of frustration

ITunes :: Why Are All Movies And Music Greyed Out
This seems to be an ongoing problem and you can see from my other posts that it is still not resolved: I have a restored previous Itunes library now appearing in my Itunes application, but when I click on any music within it, a box comes up saying: "The song can not be used because the original file could not be found, would you like to locate it?" When I click on this, it just takes me to the 'Music' file which is completley empty. I am scared to connect my Ipod in case I lose all that is on there as well and can not find the 'manually manage music' in preferences. I also have a brand new Ipad that I need to sync with ITUnes. I am also concerned about connecting my external hard drive for the same reason as I can not find anywhere in Time machine preferences that will turn off the automatic download once the external hard drive is connected. I am running Mac OSX 10.5.8 & Itunes 10?

MacBook Pro :: MacBook Pro 15" LCD Panel Compatability Options
Can someone tell me the difference between LG LCD panels LP154WP2-TLA1 and the LP154WP3-TLA1? I have a Macbook Pro (A1226) with a broken screen. I dissasembled it and found that I have the LG LP154WP2-TLA1 panel. I have found a couple of the LP154WP3-TLA1 panels at a decent price, but not sure if it is compatable. Also, what is the difference in the TLA1, TLA2, TLA3, and TLA4 models? Are they all compatable with each other? Would any of the other manufacturers panels be compatable with the LP154WP2-TLA1 (Samsung LTN154BT02 or AUO B154PW04)?
