My MacBook's Internal Speakers Are Stuck on Mute
May 17, 2008 10:08 AM Subscribe
I can't get my Mac laptop's internal speakers to work -- they just stopped one day. When I press the volume adjust buttons, the little bars don't move, and the classic circle-with-bar-through-it appears. I've checked the volume in System Preferences, and the "mute" button is not selected by accident.

When my headphones are plugged in, they sound fine, and I can adjust the volume under System Prefs. But when I unplug the headphones, the volume control greys out -- and the Selected Output switches to "Digital Out."
I have a slightly older Macbook Pro -- a 2.1, with Intel Core 2 Duo, if that matters.
I've checked AskMefi, searched around, and I know this is not a unique problem, but everyone on all the threads I've seen has just said "oh, figured it out, thanks," without offering any explanation!
Please -- if any of you know how I can fix this, I would greatly appreciate the help.
Thanks so much ...
