    Exclamation No Volume on Macbook Pro - Issue?
    I muted my computer last night and today can't get the volume to work. I have a Macbook Pro running OSx 10.5.8

    When I press the volume button, the level meter indicates the volume is all the way up, but below the level meter, there is a circle with a slash through it, indicating the volume is off. Granted, it is muted, but I have pressed the mute button several times, to see it go from on to off with still no volume.

    I have restarted and cleared my PRAM and RAM.

    Anyone know of this issue or how to fix?

    Thank You

    Specs:
    27 iMac i5, MBP 13 & iMac 20, 2TB dual TC, AppleTV, iPh4S
    Seem to recall this coming up before and the suggestion was to push the 3.5 mm jack in and out of audio plug a bit as sometime the contacts do not reseat when the plug is removed

    Make sure mute is off in all three positions: Output, Input, and Sound Effects. The only other thing to check is the headphone jack which sometimes can get stuck on or even in digital mode.

    Regards.
