    hi guys,
    OK my iBook has been acting funny of late,
    two times I have found that I only have left channel sound output, somehow it is changing on its own in my preferences,
    also today I had NO sound, no nothing. Repaired permissions, restarted and it worked, but any ideas on what could be causing it?
    I have a 1.33ghz g4, was new in sept., only hook it up to my headphones and my computer speakers through the audio headphone jack.
    Any ideas are appreciated

    It's just a bug with OSX. It's nothing to worry too much about but it's annoying. Hopefully a system update will eventually iron it out :)

    That's strange mad jew, I've never experienced it, is it only on 1.33 12" iBooks?

    Never happened on my iMac G5 or iBook. :confused:

    It seems to be pretty random. I've never had it on either of my Macs either. It happen on all sorts of Macs though, iBook or otherwise.

    It happened all the time on my last powerbook (rev d) but on m new rev e its seised. I know what youre talking about though, how you turn it on, look at systm preferences and see that the left/right slider had slided to a new position by itself. Also system updates do not fix it. At least not from 10.3.7>8>9>10.4.0>1>2>3>4
    ps my sound flaw free pb is for sale if you get fed up with you ibook, see my sig. lol
