    Hi, I have a 13 inch Macbook Pro which I bought in January this year - I have a strange issue where occasionally, when watching YouTube videos, the sound will suddenly 'pop' and no sound will work at all until I restart. Also, when the sound pops, changing the volume up and down will also make a popping noise for some reason.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    Thanks

    Wow, madness. I feel bad for you, MBP's have guarantee's right? Sounds like a hardware complication.

    Although I am in no way an educated technician so take it with a pinch of salt.

    Did you spill beer on it? Go On.... Admit it, things got a bit out of hand? You go to crunch beers with your mate and it goes everywhere? ;)

    Thanks for your reply,

    It's a bit strange - it never ever happens when listening to music in something like iTunes, or watching video in VLC/QuickTime - it's only when watching videos on the Internet, whether they're Flash videos or HTML5 videos.

    Lol, no liquid damage - putting my beers anyway near this thing would probably give me a heart attack :p

    ^^^^ you're describing a different issue than the OP's. The description on that website describes an entirely different problem altogether.

    This speaker popping has happened to me a couple of times as well.

    It has only happened when I tried to watch a YouTube video. Wheni press play for the first time, the popping begins. When I mess with the volume up and down keys, a pop happens with each press.

    I have "fixed" it by inserting my headphones and unplugging them. Then it works just fine.

    This doesn't happen every time I watch a YouTube video, but it has only happened with YouTube.

    Anyone else?

    I can call Apple and ask them to fix their products that I've bought?!?!? No way! Now why didn't we think of that before?

    That's a new, fresh idea, and I thank you for your invaluable post.

    The reason to start a thread and to contribute to a thread is because this is a forum. That's what we do around here.

    I think that the "solution" that you offered is an obvious one, especially since the OP is from April 15. Your post doesn't contribute to the discussion.

    I posted to see if anyone else has had this issue.

    That's the point.

    And thanks for the +1, I'll add it to the pile.
