My MacBook Pro internal speakers are not working, what happened?

My MacBook Pro internal speakers are not working, what happened? If I plug in earbuds or external speakers, there is sound. In sound preferences, internal speakers are not a choice. Why doesn't my internal speakers work?

Hopefully one of these steps should solve the problem.
1. Remove the headphone.
    If you see red light in the headphone port, plug the headphone
    in and out of the port 5 or 6 times to flip the microswitch inside.
    Sound output may be stuck in the digital mode.
2. Reset PRAM.  http://support.apple.com/kb/PH4405
3. Reset SMC.     http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964
    Choose the method for:
    "Resetting SMC on portables with a battery you should not remove on your own".
4. Applications > Utilities > Audio MIDI Setup
    Audio Devices window
    Side Bar
    Click the Built-in Output.
    Under Mute any of the boxes checked? If so, uncheck it.
Best.

    the internal speakers are not working on my macbook pro

    Are they selected under System Preferences>Sound? Or do you see something such as "Digital Output" listed instead of "Internal Speakers"?
    It may be that your digital out switch is 'stuck.' This usually happens after using headphones and you can usually see a red light coming from the audio out port. You can 'fix' this by plugging and unplugging a headphone jack repeatedly until the switch is reset.

  • HT1338 my internal speakers are not working

    I went to the sound preferences, thru my system preferences menu, and my internal speakers are not listed as a choice in the "select a device for sound output". It's like the computer doesn't acknowledge their presence. I can get sound thru my headphones but not thru the built in speakers

    First reset the PRAM:

  • Internal speakers are not working,  they're not showing up at all. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    My computer's speakers are not putting out sound. They worked fine yesterday, and I just now started up my computer and began using it today. The internal speakers don't show up on my list of output devices in settings, and I can't adjust the volume. Any help is really appreciated!!!

    They are all in the same folder and it says all images are there, but it is only showing 1 card's images at a time. Does anyone know how to fix this?
    This is kind of confusing, on the one hand you say "it says all images are there" and then you directly contradict this by saying "it is only showing 1 card's images at a time".
    Could you explain in a lot more detail what you see (and don't say "it", say exactly what part of Lightroom or what part of your operating system you are looking at), or show us a screen capture?

  • My internal speakers are not working, but my computers says they are

    I get no sound with or without headphones it.  I have gone into settings and made sure that I have selected internal speakers as the output device, and that they are not muted.  Everything in the settings indicates that the sound is working fine, but I can't hear anything through the speakers.  I have also checked to make sure sound is turned on in the applications I am using.

  • Macbook Pro Keyboard shortcuts are not working

    Hi there,
    In the last week or so my keyboard shortcuts for volume control are no longer working - even the mute button has no effect. when I press the shortcuts the volume adjustment image pops up and the computer makes the clicking noise, but the volume doesn't change. I can change it by going into system preferences>audio but it's fairly annoying. Would really appreciate some help on how to solve this! Thanks

    This solution worked for me! I have a MacBook Pro OS X Yosemite 10.10.1; after new software download I had to rely on earbuds or external speakers. Weird solution, but it worked, so thanks for sharing!

  • 11" MacBook Air internal speakers do not work

    My macbook air does NOT play any audio from the Internal Speakers, but it will play from the audio jack. I've reset the PRAM, SMC and it still doesnt work. The system believes that i have headphones plugged in. I cant take the p.o.s. to the Apple Store so if anyone can help fix this that would be great.

        Remove the headphone.
        If you see red light in the headphone port, plug the headphone
        in and out of the port 5 or 6 times to flip the microswitch inside.

  • My internal speakers are not working

    When I go into Settings/sound/output only Digital Out - Optical digital out port is visible and Interanl speaker is not.
    Sound is not working on any apps or iTunes

    Your machine sounds as if it is stuck in digital mode, there is a micro switch in the headphone port that sometimes will get stuck. Try taking a set of headphones and plugging them in and out several times to try to free the switch. (Sometimes a slight "wiggling" of the phone jack can help as well)
    You can also go to applications/utilities/Audio MIDI set up, click the output tab and see if you can select built in speakers in the left side bar. You can also try a pram reset:
    Power off the MBP, power back on holding the following keys, OPTION-COMMAND-P-R press these after the power button and hold till you hear the start chime 2 times and release, reboot see what you have.

  • Macbook Pro 17" - My built in speakers are not working.

    Macbook Pro 17"
    My built in speakers are not working.
    The speaker logo is not highlighted (grey not Black) and when in sound options  "output" pane only displays the digital out for 'optical' - ie, the internal speakers dont register (headphone socket works)
    Any ideas?

    1. If red light is visible in the headphone port, plug the headphone into and out of the port 5 or 6 times
         to flip the microswitch inside the port. Hopefully that will make the mode revert back to analog from digital.
    2. Reset PRAM. http://support.apple.com/kb/PH4405
    3. Reset SMC.   http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964

  • Internal Speakers do not work at all

    My sound was working just fine a few days ago, and all of a sudden, there is no sound at all comming from my macbook pro. I have tried plugging in headphones and still there's no sound comming from there neither. I don't even hear the chime at start-up. I have looked at a couple of fourms on here and tried everything from toggling with the headphone jack to reinstalling OS X Mavericks but still no dice. There's no red light showing up in the headphone jack, and the interna speakers are not showing up at all in sound preferences. I don't know what is going on, i have tried everything! What should I do? Do I need to buy a new sound system??

    I'm having the exact issue. I, too, have done everything I know to do to correct it. I've never had a moments trouble with it until I update to OS X Maverick the other day. I sometimes plug my computer to my TV via a HDMI cable, and the sound plays through the TV just fine with that. The only thing left I know to do is to take it to the Mac Store....

  • MacBook Pro internal speakers disappeared and keyboard won't light up

    yesterday I realized my internal speakers were not working on my MacBook Pro. The red light comes off in the headphone jack. I tried to plug my headphones and take them out to get my computer to recognize the internal speaker but nothing seems to be working. i was using mountain lion so I decided to install yosemite to see if that would fix my problem but it did not. In fact this morning after Yosemite was installed I noticed that my keyboard lights were also "locked" just like my speakers. I tried the PRAM reboot and the sudo terminal code but none of these have worked so far... Any ideas of what I could do?
    I Would like to specify that in my preferences for sound nothing is muted not is the wrong device selected, there are no devices available as if my internal speakers had disapeared

    1. Applications > Utilities > Audio MIDI Setup
        Audio Devices window
        Side Bar
        Click the Built-in Output.
        Under Mute any of the boxes checked? If so, uncheck it.
        Make sure that CH1 and CH2 volume sliders are at the middle and matched.
    2. System Preferences > Sound> Sound Effects
        Play sound effects through:
       Select "Internal speakers" and then back to "Selected sound output device".
    If this does not help, you have to take the computer to the Apple store to have it checked out.
    Best.

  • My speakers are not working but it still makes a sound when it boots up

    my speakers are not working but it still makes a sound when it boots up.

    Take each of the following steps that you haven't already tried.
    1. Start with the steps recommended in this support article.
    2. If your model has an audio-out (headphone) port, and a red light is coming from it, the internal switch is stuck in the position for digital output. You may be able to free it by inserting and removing a mini-stereo jack of the proper size. Inserting any kind of tool in the port may cause damage that won't be covered by your warranty.
    If there's no red light, the switch may still be stuck in the headphone position. Try to free it the same way.
    3. Boot in safe mode. Don't log in; just reboot as usual when the login screen appears. When you do, make sure the words "Safe Boot" do not appear in the login screen. If they do, the system is still in safe mode and sound won't work.
    4. Reset the NVRAM.
    5. Reset the SMC.
    6. Reinstall OS X after backing up all data.
    7. Make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store.
