    No sound!!??!?!
    My speakers aren't making sound anymore? It just happened yesterday. Yes the volume is turned up. I tried turning it off over night and still nothing. There is sound however with the use of headphones.

    Is it possible there is a keyboard command I accidently entered that mutes your speakers? Or anyone have similar problem?

    Do you hear anything when you boot or reboot your system?

    I have a similar problem on my powerbook. Can you tell me how you solved the problem. What was the problem? Thanks.

    Wot's your setup? I have my iBook connected to the Video 1 channel of my receiving unit. Do you have a similar setup and if so do you have it set to the correct channel? We may need more information to assist you.

    Hi guys. Two things:
    1) Agreed, more info would be good.
    2) I have a thought (it's only a thought, I'm not saying it will work), but I downloaded a program, some time back, that is a sound splitter (router). What it does is bring up a menu that you can use to adjust were and what you want coming out of your speakers. Ex) you want music coming out of the headphones, but not the main speakers. Stuff like that. Now, I've never tried it, but you can download it for free at http://rogueamoeba.com/detour/ .

    Like I said, though, I've never tried it, but it might be worth a shot if you're getting sound out of one port but not another.

    I'm sorry, I misread your first post. In my case, there is no sound from the internal speakers, or using the headphones. Anyone have an idea what it may be? I tried repairing permissions and the usual...I'm thinking it might be the logic board.

    When strange things like this just happen, no harm in tryin this: Reboot in sngle user terminal (reboot with Apple + S) And in there type /sbin/fsck -fy until there is no more **File system changed** reply - After which a typed restart reboots to normal (or type exit)

    I am having exactly the same problem with my Powerbook G4. I tried calling Apple care and they seemed to think it was a hardware problem with the speakers but it seemed to happen when my 3 year old son pressed a combination of keys !
    Did you find a fix for your problem ?
    Thanks,

    Yeah, my problem was more of a software issue. It wasn't fun, because no sound came from my computer whatsoever, the problem was widespread and Quicktime wasn't the only thing that wasn't giving me sound.
