Thread: G3 Internal Speaker Dead...
09-11-2006, 11:08 PM #1NTL1991GuestG3 Internal Speaker Dead...
Hello. I have the Blue and White G3 Power Macintosh. When I try to play music without any external speakers (I currently have none) no sound comes out of the internal speaker. But, when I plug in headphones to the Audio Out/External Speakers Plug on the back, the music comes out fine. I checked the leads on the Internal Speaker, and they seem securely snug to the motherboard. I really doubt it's a software issue, But I'm not a professional. I'm thinking of buying a new Internal Speaker Assembly... (I'm very picky with having EVERYTHING working on a computer, no matter how little)
Does anyone know what this is?

Anyone? I purchased another one and it still won't work. The connectors on the motherboard look fine and the plug connects well. Does anyone know what's wrong?

Yeah, If I hitch up external speakers they work fine, I think there might be a short in the pins on the motherboard, Tomorrow I'll check with a multimeter

OK. I got it working. I bought an extra speaker and cut the motherboard connecter off of it. Then I spliced the wires and did the same to a mini-jack to mini-jack cable. Then I connected the speaker's spliced end with the mini-jack cable's spliced end and tada. I put the speaker back in and ran the wire out the back into the external speaker port.
