Opened sound in System Preferences and saw this.
There was a red light before, but now it's gone.Do you see the red light in the audio port ?
Apply this (from the previous link) :
"Look in the audio output port.
If you see a red light, then the internal switch is stuck. Insert the phone jack a few times and see if that will trip the switch. If no success, try a cocktail stirrer or the like and jiggle it inside. If still no success, bring it to an Apple store.
If there is no red light, try a PRAM reset:
Didn't try repairing permissions yet. I'll try this and report back.You might :
- repair the permissions in Disk Utility
- shut down the computer
- reset the SMC
Il the problem is still here (with no red light in the audio port), try the Terminal as suggested in the link.
Tried the Terminal command, it went through, I restarted my computer, and nothing.That is normal : type your admin password, nothing will be displayed, then hit the Enter key.
I doubt Soundflower could be the problem, because I've have that there forever and it never did anything.Does "Sound" in System Preferences still reads "Digital Out --- Optical digital-out port" ?
Can you select "Soundflower" there ?
Couldn't Soundflower be the problem ?
