Jul 11, 2010

So I went to church earlier tonight, and was gone about 4 hours. When I came home and opened up my Macbook, the right click had stopped working. I have tried unchecking and rechecking the option for right click, restarted the computer. I don't know what to do!

OS X Yosemite :: PS3 Controller Randomly Stopped Working

Dec 12, 2014

So my paired Bluetooth PS3 controller just stopped connecting with my mid-2011 iMac today. It says it is connected in the drop-down Bluetooth menu, I can see the flashing red lights, but it no longer works with any of the games it did 1-2 days ago.

I did download USB Overdrive to use the PS3 controller plugged in (with Expendabros, which was crashing when I tried to use the controller wirelessly, a known bug) yesterday, and it worked with that. Anyway, I made sure Overdrive was not selected as active in System Preferences. I tried that little reset button on the controller itself. Charged it, of course (it was almost full anyway). Restarted my computer. Add resetting SMC and PRAM (the latter always makes me nervous, as it really screwed up my wifi settings once) to the list. I tried removing the device from the drop-down menu bar list and repairing, no luck. Is it odd that it is showing up in the drop-down list, but not in the list in Bluetooth System Preferences?

In addition, I looked at my System Profile, and the PS3 controller is listed as NOT paired...Lastly, I tried to find com.apple.Bluetooth.plist in "Preferences" under Library (to try deleting it), but I couldn't find it. I did find com.apple.I don't believe there were any OS updates recently that could have changed Bluetooth somehow.

Laptops :: MacBook Sound Stopped Working Randomly

Nov 29, 2010

I was listening to music on my macbook with headphones one night and once I unplugged them my sound stopped working. There is no red light coming out of the headphone jack and when I go to the sound settings it says there are no output controls. I don't know what to do because everyone says theirs has a red light but mine doesn't.

OS X Mavericks :: IMessage On MacBook Pro Randomly Stopped Working

Sep 10, 2014

I recently purchased a Macbook Pro 15" for college. I set everything up and it was working perfect until a few days ago. When I try to send a message on my macbook the person's name I am sending it to is blue for a second but quickly changes to red but I know they are using iMessage because I am iMessaging them off of my iPhone. Also, when I try to facetime someone from my macbook it works perfectly and I can receive facetimes too.

Some of the fixes I tried:

Logging out of iMessage on iPhone and then logging back in

Deleting preference files (This is a huge confusion for me, I simply don't have the files. Ex:  com.apple.imservice.iMessage

I've tried editing the preferences on my macbook and iphone . I recently switched from my 5c to a 4s because water damage completely ruined my 5c.

PowerPC :: IBook G4 - Volume And Brightness Stopped Working?

Aug 13, 2009

Up until recently, F1 - F5 have been Brightness and Volume controls, as they have been since I got the thing. I go to use the Volume, and it doesn't work. I then try the Brightness, and it doesn't work. F6 - F12 all work just fine, which leads me to believe that iBook had a brain fart.

My volume balance has always altered itself. Balancing itself out of one speaker left or right as it so chooses. I know it's smart, but now it's just screwing with me. Settings go and change on their own, dock icons have switched, but this one has stumped me. How do I get those hardware function keys back to doing what they're there to do?

Also, I tried it with an App called Rowmote, that lets you control your Mac from your iPhone, with Apple Remote-like control, and the volume won't change using that either. Another symptom is that sometimes it makes clicking sounds, as if it were changing slowly and glitchy (which it did click sometimes anyhow) when using the Volume slider in the menu bar.

No, the options in System Preferences is not checked to use them as FN. Any ideas?

Software :: Apple Bluetooth Keyboard Stopped Working / Itunes Stopped Working

May 13, 2009

I installed 10.5.7 yesterday. Immediately after the installation was complete, my Apple bluetooth keyboard stopped working. Went into Bluetooth system settings, and it said that there was no bluetooth hardware found... (it's built into the machine!!)...

Also, every time I start iTunes, it gives some weird error about Adobe Flash player. I'm not at home now so I don't have the exact wording of the error with me, sorry...

OS X :: USB Ports Just Stopped Working On IMac

Jan 30, 2009

I have a aluminum iMac, which has been working fine until now. A couple of hours ago I restarted it and went and did something else for a couple of hours. I then came back to find my keyboard and mouse not working, I double checked and they were both plugged in fine (I use the aluminum apple keyboard and a kensington mouse). I restarted my computer but it still did not fix the problem (I was still stuck at the login screen). I thought it might be the USB, so I plugged my iPod in, and it did not charge. While my iPod was still connected to my computer I restarted it again and as soon as the screen turned grey my iPod started charging and my mouse worked (the light turned on), but only until the grey apple logo appeared and it then stopped working again. I have tried every USB slot and none of them work. I'm pretty sure my computer was completely updated as well.

OS X :: Imac Headphone Output Stopped Working?

Feb 4, 2009

My internal speakers work fine. When I plug in headphones, the left side has normal audio for about one second, then becomes barely audible. The right side is barely audible all the time. If I unplug them, and re-plug them, the same exact thing happens. Everything looks good in the sound properties page. I know the headphones work because I tried them in another device.

IMac (Intel) :: ISight Stopped Working Under OS X 10.9.4

Sep 7, 2014

The camera had been working fine with FaceTime, Photo Booth and Skype under 10.9.4 and then something happened. I run FaceTime and the camera screen comes up, but it's black with no sidebar. I had this happen once before when the serial number hadn't been put back after they replaced the motherboard. It's back in now and was working fine. I did have to install Google hangouts plug in, but FaceTime was working fine after that and I've since uninstalled it after FaceTime stopped working and it still doesn't work. 

I did have AirParrot and SoundFlower installed which the camera worked with, but uninstalled them as I saw something about a possible problem. I've reset SMU and PRAM, nothing. he mac sees the camera as being there so it shouldn't be a camera problem, but the apps while seeing the camera aren't getting any input [and no it's not blocked. ]

IMac :: 24" External Drives Stopped Working?

Dec 2, 2010

Brought them out of storage on a very, very careful move and now some don't work which used to days ago.

- 320 GB lacie - works
- 1 TB elements works
- Samsung 2TB works

- 1TB firewire 400 WD was working, right up to tonight, and now it doesn't (not even on the USB connection instead of Fire Wire)
- 1TB WD (used for time machine) stopped working weeks agoGot a message about a device or such plugged into USB was drawing too much power earlier, first time ever

Turned the mac off, disconnected the power, held power button 5 secs and plugged in and restarted, no goodThe working ones seem to work on an unpowered hub but those not working of course don't Have searched the internet, nothing seems to be giving an answer of late for this.

Other issues starting to arise:
- DVD's won't eject from the iMac now
- Internet (Wireless lan connected to iinet DSL wireless router (BOB) drops out a lot and have to run network diagnostic all the time)These are less important, need to fix this HDD issue so I can back up with time machine and install snow leopard then develop my app)

OS X Technologies :: Scripting From A USB Volume?

Jun 16, 2012

I have created a simple apple script (my vary first one) in which I wanted the script, when run, to open a random image from a folder that had images within it.  I did it using this code: tell application "Finder"  (* get a random image file from a desktop folder *) set randomImage to some file of folder "Pictures"  open randomImage  end tell 

That worked well and good when the folder containing the images was on the desktop.  However, the folder I really want to use is on a USB stick.  How can I tell the script that the folder I want it to run with is on the USB Stick? I know I could easily copy the folder from the stick to the desktop, but I'd rather keep the folder on the stick.

OS X Technologies :: Get A List Of All Inode Numbers On A Volume?

Mar 22, 2012

Is there any way to get a list of all inode numbers on a volume?  I have a "find -x /Volumes/thedisk/* -exec stat {} ;" going but requires lots of CPU time.  Seems like I should be able to look directly at the file allocation table...oh wait, that is DOS. This is on an HFS disk: /dev/disk0s2 on / (hfs, local, journaled)

I can change the volume level from the command line using this command, For example: osascript -e 'set Volume 3'. Is there a way to detect the current volume level using a similar command and a way to assign it to a variable?

MacBook Pro :: 85W MagSafe 2010 15" Stopped Charging Randomly?

Jun 20, 2010

just moments ago i plugged in my mbp and literally 1 minute or so later i hear a static fuzz sound (hard to describe) but if i had to give a similar sound it was exactly like the sound your radio alarm clock makes sometimes when your cell phone is nearby receiving an incoming call or text w/e, your alarm clock sometimes makes that sudden static fuzz sound.

well my mbp made that sound, wasn't as distorted as an radio alarm clock would make, but it sounded more precise. the sound came out of the left speaker for a second or so (no music or movie or any program with sound effects were active at this moment) i believe right where the magsafe is hooked into. and i was like "what the heck was that?? and was it from my mbp??" so i looked at the magsafe and sure enough the orange charging light was out as if it was unplugged (but it was still plugged IN) so i unhooked it then rehooked it and now it charged like normal again, still hasn't done it again while i started this thread.

any thoughts?? additional info i have to add is, i was swapping out the extension pieces from the smaller cord adapter, to the full 8 foot or so cord one. but when i switched out the small single piece i tugged in the opposite direction, i pulled up against the metal circle joint, instead of sliding left to unhooked the metal circle thing (w/e u call it). i felt the piece and its in full contact, i didn't loosen it or anything. could this be the random cause?

lastly, that static noise i heard that ended up causing the magsafe to stop charging. could that static noise damage my speakers?

additional info i also had my cell phone like 8 inches away from the magsafe. could the cell phone have the same static frequency or w/e that can interfere with the magnet/charging cycle?? i didn't receive any calls or texts when it happened. so i dunno if cell phones have frequencies constantly that could possibly cause my issue without having the receive incoming calls or texts etc.
