How do I get the sound to come out of external speakers?

How do I get the sound to come out of external speakers?

Thanks for our reply.  My speakers are powered Bose speakers but still didn't pick up the sound until I tried this suggestion from another discussion thread.  This worked like a charm:
Re: External speakers don't work created by ally100 in MacBook Pro -View the full discussion
I had a similar problem a while back. The issue was with the speaker jack plug and the macbook phone socket. For some reason the jack plug was not a good a fit, as say the jack that comes with the iphone ear phones. A few tiwsts and turns of the speaker jack plug and it eventually became a snug(ish) fit. Have a look on you tune. There are a couple of videos on there that might help if this is not the issue.

  • How do I get the sound to go to an external audio system?

    I am having trouvle getting my sound to go to external audio system from Logic Pro?

    You need to put in a bit more information about what you're trying to do, and what sort of equipment you're using.
    Are you using some sort of audio interface?  If so, is the driver installed, and is it selected as the Output Device under Preferences/Audio/Devices?  Then check under Preferences/Audio/Output, that you've got the desired output selected for your audio interface.
    If you're not using an interface, then you want to select "Built In Output" under Devices, and you should be able to run a cable from the headphone jack to your external audio system.

  • I no longer have sound for either my audio books or my music on itunes.  I've tried everything--restarting, updating, re-installing audible app, and restoring the iphone to its factory settings--nothing helps.  How do I get the sound back?

    How do I get the sound back on my iPhone 4?  I've tried all the fixes such as restarting iPhone, reinstalling the audible app, and finally yesterday, I restored the phone to its factory settings.  I still get no sound from music on iTunes or from my audible books.  The phone still rings (I have sound for that) and the voice control speaks to me, and when I'm typing, the automatic text voice speaks so I can hear it but nothing else works. 

    Since it has always been very basic to backup your computer and all it's data, Apple provides no way for you to transfer music from your iPhone back to your computer.  As you know, you can re-download all iTunes purchases, but music that you ripped yourself you'll have to just re-rip again.
    You can try and find 3rd party applications that might help you.  I'm sure you'll pay, however.
    Let this be a very important lesson learned.
    Best.

  • How to use iphone as a microphone for the sound to come out in a bluetooth wireless speaker? what app?

    well i want to do the impossible- i think. i want to know if i there is an app that will allow me to use my iphone as a microphone, for the iphone to be able to be connected to a wireless bluetooth speaker, and for the sound, to come out on the speaker. (the voice) without any cables. in order to do some fun stuff like karaoke or just talk.

    Hi redzknzz,
    I see this has been up for over a year with no responses. Did you ever find a solution? I'm interested in something similar. The apps I've seen require the iPhone be connected to a powered speaker with a stereo cable. There are apps that allow you to connect to another iDevice via WiFi, which can then connect to the speaker. No output via Bluetooth yet.
    Have you found anything?

    You will just have to carefully pull harder. Push the other side back in so it is aligned, then pull it straight out.

  • How can I get the sounds , like clicking,etc to work on iPad 2 with IOS 5. In the settings all sounds are on and the volume is high but I don't get a sound.

    Have you got notifications muted ? Only notifications (including games) get muted, so the iPod and Videos apps, and headphones, still get sound.
    Depending on what you've got Settings > General > Use Side Switch To set to (mute or rotation lock), then you can mute notifications by the switch on the right hand side of the iPad, or via the taskbar : double-click the home button; slide from the left; and it's the icon far left; press home again to exit the taskbar. The function that isn't on the side switch is set via the taskbar instead : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4085

  • How do you get the sound to play on the tv from your macbook

    I connected my macbook to my tv using a HDMI cord. I'm trying to watch netflix but the sound plays from my macbook. How do you get the music to play from the tv instead.

    The adapter to HDMI doesn't carry sound from a MacBook earlier than the Mid 2010 models and most TVs don't have separate RCA input plugs for audio with the HDMI inputs since they expect the sound to be carried by the HDMI plug. With HDMI you'll need to use external speakers or headphone jack to RCA sound plugs connected to a stereo sound system if your TV doesn't have separate RCA input plugs for audio with the HDMI plug.

  • How do y get the sound to work.

    How do I get my sound to work.

    I assume you have an iPad.
    It would help if you give some information in your profile or your post about equipment, operating systemversion and so on.
    If you are new to iPad:
    Go to Settings, choose the "general" line in the left panel, then you will see the "Use side switch to:" possibilities.
    Check the side Switch position.
    Underneath the General is the Sounds settings, iy look there look at the most upper setting at the right.
    Happy new year.

    Just got a new iphone 5. When I plug in the ear buds, the audio still comes out of the phone itself.  How do I transfer the audio to the ear buds?

    Make sure it's plugged in all the way, because it clicks when it's no all the way In and many users get confused. If not try turning it.
