MacBook Pro :: No Audio Out From Speakers / Not Showing Internal Speakers

Mar 19, 2008

MacBook Pro 2.16

Situation: no sound out from speakers in admin and user account and newly created account. Headphones work, startup chimes work on speakers.

Go to Sound in Preferences and only shows Digital Out for output. Should show Internal Speakers. Ran Diskwarrior and Applejack and zapped pram. Took mac apart and confirmed speakers wired correctly which is verified by the start up chimes being audible on the internal speakers. tested all accounts and created new account all with the same results. Did search of Google and MacRumor. Found one unaswered post indicating same problem. Had same problem with another macbook pro, ran same steps, take apart, confirm wiring setup, Diskwarriored, applejacked and zapped pram and it fixed the problem. I'm not sure what else to try. Did check Audio Midi Setup util and it also did not see the internal speakers.

IMac :: Using Internal Speakers Without Unplugging Headphones

Mar 28, 2010

I'm still in love with my iMac, now entering the phase where I have to fight with SWMBO* to get access to my main machine. I have plugged a pair of headphones in the iMac but I would like to be able to find a software solution that would let me switch between headphones and the internal speakers of the iMac (which are quite good actually!) Plugging / Unplugging is not really ideal and I swear I thought I could do this on my powerbook...

Intel Mac :: Why Is Icluod Not Showing Up In System Preferences

May 1, 2012

I have a 2007 imac and have done all updates that I know of but the transition to icloud is not working very well.  

1) icloud does not have an icon in system prefernces, it's still mobile me. Although there is a message that states the account has been moved, I cannot sync etc. 

2) two of my email addresses will not stay connected in mail. Since moving to icloud I have had to reinstall them everyday. 

3) I host three websites from iweb but since the change to icloud I cannot find my former account where I can access my web domain info that used to be easily found in my mobile me account page.

Mac Pro :: Internal Hdd Missing Not Showing Up In DiskUtility Or System Profiler

May 15, 2010

I thought nothing of it until I started rebooting and STILL couldn't get the computer to see it.

I've tried the drive in all 4 of my internal bays and looked to see if shows up under BootCamp but no luck yet. My other internal drives work in any bay slot, so I don't think it's a fault with the MacPro.

As far as I know, it's spinning up and isn't making any dead-drive sounds I've heard in the past, it just seems to be invisible to the computer.

OS X :: Manually Switching From Internal Speakers To Headphones?

Apr 1, 2008

It's been a bad evening. A friend accidentally tripped over a 1/8th to RCA cable we were running from the MB to the TV. Friend and TV are fine, but the MB no longer switches from "internal speakers" to "headphones" when I plug in a pair of headphones, the 1/8th cable, etc. It stays on speaker mode even when the plug is fully inserted.

I've experimented with a toothpick, and have engaged and disengaged the digital out, but that's not the issue. If I bend a fully inserted headphone plug hard towards the front of the MB (i.e., toward the USB ports), I get full stereo sound, which indicates the jack is still partly working; however, under all other circumstances, sound comes through the speakers, which suggests the MB isn't receiving the "switch" signal properly from the jack.

I've been googling for the last few hours, and it looks like Macbook Wind users have found ways to alter the AppleHda.kext file to allow them to manually toggle between internal speakers and headphones, which means there has to be a way to do this on the native Macbook. Unfortunately, no one seems to have this specific problem (or at least, I haven't found anyone with this issue since I started searching)

Software :: Mute Internal Speakers If Headphones Come Out?

I can't recall what I need to accomplish this, but I'd like to be able to mute my internal speakers in the event that my headphones come out on accident (my headphones won't securely fasten into the mac, thus have the tendency to fall out).

OS X :: Suddenly Stopped Having Internal Speakers In The Sound Preferences?

Aug 20, 2009

My Macbook has suddenly stopped having internal speakers in the sound preferences.When I turn it on, it plays that familiar synth chord sound to say all is ok, but it wont play any audio. So videos and itunes etc play but the sound isn't produced.When I try to turn the volume up or down, the indicator says the volume is up full, but I cannot adjust it. Underneath the volume measurement there is a little sign in white like a no entry sign, meaning that adjustment of volume is not available.I gues this must mean that the speakers have been disabled, but can't figure out how to enable them.

MacBook Pro :: Internal Speakers Missing In Sound Preferences

Aug 23, 2014

MBP 1 - 13" Mid 2012 MBP 2.5Ghz/i5/HD4000 (No internal speakers listed). 

1. Reset SMC - No change.

2. Reset NVRAM - No change.

3. Apple Hardware Test - No problems found.

4. The same machine when booted in Windows (via Bootcamp/CSM-BIOS) plays perfectly and shows Cirrus Logic devices and the HDA devices. This should eliminate hardware issues.

5. I have checked for the Optical Audio microswitch being stuck, but that does not seem to be the case.

6. This was used with Apple Headphones which also have the microphone built-in [URL] ....

IORegistryExplorer shows 

Comparing it to another 13" Mid 2012 MBP which has working sound.

With my iMac, I have Swan M10 external speakers that I love. I also like to use headphones sometimes.

My currrent solution for switching from speakers to headphones (or vice versa) involves physically turning the computer, disconnecting one input in the headphone jack, and putting in the other one.

Hardware :: New Internal HD Not Showing In Disk Utility

Jun 24, 2008

I just replaced the internal hard drive on my G4 iBook. My problem is the drive is not showing up in Disk Utility, the system install disk, or when I have the iBook in target mode and connected to my tower. I believe the old drive had died. When I ran the Hardware Test on it, I received an error code on Mass Storage. After installing the new drive and running the Hardware Test, the Mass Storage passed. I take that as a good sign.?

Before cracking the iBook back open, I was wanting to find out what all the problem may be and what things to check while I have it open since that is not that quick of an operation. I'm already assuming to check the connections on the drive. But if they weren't secure, would it still pass the Hardware Test?

Mac Pro :: Internal Drives Not Showing Up On Desktop / Can Access Them In Finder

Nov 2, 2009

So I just received my Nehalem Mac Pro today, and I successfully installed three new hard drives in it, and I can access all four of my drives in Finder, but NONE of them (including the Boot Drive that came with the computer) are showing up on the desktop! I can't figure out why so I thought I'd ask here.

Oddly enough, my Firewire 800 Drive shows up on the desktop. Anyone have any ideas why this would happen? And how to fix it?
