No Audio - Acer Aspire Switch 10 - bytcr-rt5640

Post by sglasgowaz »

First, let me apologize for posting for help, but I have gone through every thread I can find on the Bay Trail bytcr-rt5640 (and other related) cards and have followed everything I could find, and still cannot get sound either from speakers or headphones. Pulse Audio volume control shows sound is playing. This is using the UCM stuff from Mr. Bossart that everyone was directed to use.

Anyway, I think I've been working to solve this for too long and maybe an extra set of eyes can point out what I am missing.
Acer Aspire Switch 10 2n1 (most of the threads were about the chinese knock offs but same chipsets). I'd prefer to get speakers working, but if it is just the headphone jack, so be it. Already blacklisted the intel hdmi since I don't need to connect to a tv. Don't think it matters since no one else mentioned it, but just in case, WiFi card works, cameras (front/back) do not (different issue for another time), and don't know if that would have anything to do with anything, so I am spelling it out now in case it does.

Listing outputs from the various different commands that are generally requested. If I missed any, let me know. If I included to much, I apologize. Oh, one more thing to note, I did comment out the pulse default.pa module-suspend-on-idle line. I have also tried commenting out the section with: .ifexists module-udev-detect.so but I uncommented out since it didn't make a difference.

Anyway, thank you in advance for any possible things to try or pointing out some boneheaded thing I missed myself.

Hi sglasgowaz, and welcome to the forum.

Great job getting as far as you did up to this point, and thanks for all the outputs!

See if pavucontrol can fix whatever issue is left. apt install pavucontrol will give you a menu entry of PulseAudio Volume Control. The Configuration tab and Output Devices tab are where you need to make sure the settings make sense.

If no luck, start a song or video then run pacmd list-sinks in the terminal. That one is easier for me to read than the pactl output.

Thank you! Dang, I thought I put pacmd output on here. Here it is....also, I already have pavucontrol installed (more useful than the built-in Sound control). Also have the pulse audio meters which is what I was watching. Also was using pacmd list-sinks to watch the status to make sure it showed active. Also how I determined that one of the posts I read somewhere about disabling idle was good to try because it would show suspended. One other thing I forgot to mention, bluetooth isn't detected (not that I need it) so I am not sure if since it's all integrated if that is a telltale sign. Didn't see any posts that mentioned it.

That output looks good, I believe.

Here's something that may help as well. On plbossart's UCM github site, the 5651 folder has an asound.state file that says "UCM: bytcr initial commit for rt5640 and rt5651 codecs"

If you get that file and copy it to /var/lib/alsa you will need to edit the first line to change it to the correct number (5651-5640) so it reads state.bytcrrt5640 {

Maybe this is the kick in the pants your card needs.

Follow with a reboot.

Yeah, I thought the same thing and did that already when I kept reading about asound.state and there was no file in the directory I used (I grabbed the whole tree) and thought, what harm could it do. But quite honestly, my notes got all jumbled up so I have no idea when I did that today, but will do it again and see what happens. Been working on this off and on for a week. The one thing I learned was how much I forgot about Linux (been since the mid 90's since I was deep in it), and with my trial and errors with Ubuntu and Mint using my external drive, I decide to wipe the 2n1 clean and just go with Mint and setup the system snapshots so I could roll back instead of doing clean installs each time.

I really do appreciate the second set of eyes on this. Going to go try the asound.state file again and see what happens and let you know.

By the way, the SUSPENDED usually only shows when you aren't playing anything. It's probably not necessary to comment out that line. That's why I always ask people to start a song or video, because if it says SUSPENDED then, we know there's an issue.

I am hopeful on the asound.state file fixing you up. If it doesn't work, before you try anything else, power off the device for a few minutes, then boot up and test.

Remember, that file does need the first line edited.

OK took longer. I checked the asound.state file and I had already made the change. So then I decided, I will copy over the other one anyway, cold booted, no sound. So then I checked the file, had the change so I was at a loss. So then I compared sizes and it was larger than the original ~56 to ~18. So then I shutdown pulse audio and alsa, copied the file again, made the change shutdown and did a cold start up. No sound. Looked at the file and again it's ~56 in size larger than orginal. So somehow, it is making changes again. So I shut down pulse and alsa and deleted the local pulse directory in ~/.config and tried again. Same thing, no sound and the file is back to the 56 in size versus 18.

So I must have settings in Alsa somewhere that is adding to asound.state, but I was under the assumption it would just be channel/mixer/volume related, right? I can still see the volume for the speaker isn't muted. It does remute the headphones, but I unmute than and tried headphones, but speaker, L/R channels are left unmuted and speaker volume remains. And this is what drove me here to ask for help (although I hadn't thought to compare the file size before).

I just saw your comment on the suspend thing. It did show suspended after I had tried to play a short wave file. And I don't mean right after...talking about quite a bit of time which is why I thought to go ahead and try it. I kept trying it both ways, but right now, I have it commented out. I can uncomment it if you'd like. If I had a choice, I would just toss this thing out the window and go get another one but that isn't an option since it isn't mine.

Just in case, as this happened to me once, see if there's a .pulse folder in your home dir and delete it if it exists.

Regarding the changes to asound.state file size, I'm wondering if something was added to the 5640 files to take care of the file already. I'll take a quick read.

Yeah, I'm thinking the HIFI file is probably causing that file to increase with all the cset lines. Gotta think for a bit to decide what to try next.

Actually, run alsamixer in the terminal. If it exists disable Loopback Mixing and make sure nothing is muted that shouldn't be.

Let's also get the output of dmesg | grep snd

Sorry, was looking through everything again. lso, I see no active loopback items in alsamixer unless I am missing something. I have go one at a time (small screen I guess) switching through, but the items with loopback were muted.

Yeah, so before I booted for the third time earlier messing with copying the asound.state file, as I said, I shut down alsa and pulse and deleted the pulse directory in my home .config directory. There were no other pulse directories. I can double check again to see if I missed anything but I know when I first started looking into this last week reading up on all the different posts, I was doing that when it said, but I never had them except in .config. I always look at the locations and the contents before I blindly just follow someones post. Kind of like to know what I am doing in case I need to do it all again.

dmesg:

I understand. I almost never mention the .pulse folder as it almost never exists. In just one case, it appeared on my system and was preventing pulseaudio from starting when booting up. No idea what I did that caused that, and just wanted to be sure you hadn't done the same.

I'm at the point of just taking stabs in the dark now. See if there anything besides pulseaudio at the end of the lines from sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*

Yeah, that is why when I saw a couple of posts about it, I checked to see. Sorry, I thought I posted that as well. Here it is.
BTW, I really do appreciate this and don't want to take all your time. I was just hoping I was missing something stupid that someone else would catch since I have been through everything I could find. Granted, most of it was based on knock offs, and complaints about how slow it was to get people to help or how bad the sound was. I just need sound, either speaker or headphones, be it stereo or mono. I'm a programmer, not an audiophile and was just hopeful since I saw quite a few who got it working on the knock offs with the same chipset.

And just in case, yes, I have switched between speaker stereo, speaker mono and headphones and repeated it each time, rebooting each time. Granted, for headphones, I always have to go into alsamixer and unmute the headphones after a reboot. But I did try it multiple times, alternating between just a restart and cold boots each time. I think I even tried booting up with the device upside down once just to see if it would help.

Dammit! I was hoping that we'd find something blocking pulseaudio.

To my eyes, you've done everything you should. Maybe try reloading sound junk:

Code: Select all

apt remove --purge alsa-base pulseaudio
apt install alsa-base pulseaudio
sudo alsa force-reload
You may need to do the UCM thing again after that. I'm not sure on that,

I've done that also, including today, right before I posted actually. I thought starting fresh would help it also, but it didn't. I went all the way back to doing a fresh install and working on getting sound working with a fresh install, even though I had just recently installed for the first time anyway, I figured I had installed other stuff the first time, that it might have affected something.

Well...I appreciate the attempt at helping me. At least I know I wasn't as crossed eyed from looking through all this for the upteenth time.

Have you looked in the BIOS? I doubt it's going to help, but maybe something is disabled that should be enabled, or vice versa.

OK this is new. So I figured even though I had done the whole remove purge thing this morning, why not try it again. So it's going and doing it's thing like it did this morning. Bam...all the sudden it is talking about removing Grub. Didn't do that before. I said no, but why would it want to remove Grub?

Code: Select all

sudo apt remove --purge alsa-base pulseaudio

Ok...so I am obviously posting into the code block wrong..didn't notice no scrollbars. And it didn't include the Grub thing. Sorry, I didn't notice all my output stuff wasn't put in right. I guess I am doing something wrong using it. *slap forehead*
