Sound disappeared in linux mint

Post by tcheip » Sat May 19, 2018 11:54 am

Hello all,

My laptop speakers were working fine and then not anymore.
I think this happened when i connected an HDMI screen to my laptop.

Usually i just need to go into sound setting and click on speakers instead of HDMI and problem will solved. But in my case there is only one option which is speakers...

Config is set as Analog Stereo Output. I can even see the bar mooving when i play a song but ne sound go out of speakers.

I tried speakers trough virtual machine windaube bu didn't work too.

I tried to disconnect and reconnect the screen without success.

Sound is working on jack or bluetooth but not on laptop speakers.

I'm a bit afraid my laptop speakers are just dead (my laptop is new Xiaomi MI note pro)

Do you now some way to reset all config, it will maybe help...

Thanks

Hi tcheip. In one of your other posts, you show a screenshot of alsamixer that shows the speakers as muted. Maybe this is the cause?

Run alsamixer and select your sound card. Then use the right arrow to move the highlighted option to Speakers, then press m to unmute.

If that doesn't help, please post the output of pacmd list-sinks

Thanks but still not working.

It is not muted and sound bar is mooving.

Its more like sound is not directed to speakers or speakers are broken.

Thanks

Check the manual switch on side of laptop to make sure it's actually turned on. This is as common as people forgetting to turn off their cap locks key when entering a password and it not working.
All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....
