this is exactly the same problem i am having. first i did archive and install... then i did upgrade.... then i did erase and install... i thought after erase and install it would work, but it doesn't. when i installled, nothing was plugged into the headphone jack. nothing. for some reason though, when i plug in my speakers the volume works again. however, i have no volume on my black macbook (just got it in June).I have no sound while running Leopard...everything is standard in my Powerbook except memory which is 1.5 GB. 17'' Powerbook 1.67 GHz.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here are some screens of my problem:
for what its worth, the guys at the apple store are replacing the logic board as the audio socket is attached to it. They seemed to confirm that the issue IS caused by a switch in the socket, and is not software related. On a side note, the new Cambridge store and staff therein were excellent.dhc said:I'm taking my Macbook into to the Apple store tomorrow because of this problem. Not entirely convinced that I'd be happy with an ongoing 'fix' of 'waggling a toothpick'..
Has anyone had a permanent fix? Has the cause ever really been identified (Hardware -stuck switch/software - Leopard related)?
It's incredibly annoying..
Wow, so my situation was not unique! For a minute there today I thought one of my trusty ol' G4 12" PBs, the one running Leopard 10.5.3, was trying to die with its boots on. I lost my audio on it for no apparent reason. I have no idea what triggered it because I was using the machine for awhile before I hit on a track in iTunes 7.6.2 and "nothing happened..." Earlier today I had played a few songs on the thing while loading a nano with a fresh selection of tracks from the library on that machine. The disconnect of the nano was normal and I think I played a few more songs on the powerbook before I put the machine to sleep for awhile. I am not sure it had audio when I woke it up, since the first thing I did after that was just surf the news for a few minutes.I have the same problem with one additional symptom. My iTunes will not play songs. It thinks it's playing a song (play button is on play) but the song progress bar does not move.
I'm using a G4 PowerBook 12". I have Leopard and upgraded to iTunes 7.5 yesterday.
