Having problems with your Harman Kardon Computer Speakers ?

No sound when hooked up to macbook air. - Harman Kardon Computer Speakers

Hi !!

Here's something you can try:

go to preference pane select sound then output bar and arrange the volume labeling , can you hear some sound.\015\012\011\011

Here's some other:

I have a solution for you all. This fixed the problem for me. First,\015\012make sure you are all running 10.5.5. If you are not, run software\015\012update from the Apple Menu. If you are set there, go to Applications\015\012--> Utilities --> Disk Utility --> Make sure your Hard Drive\015\012is selected on the left hand panel --> MAKE SURE the First Aid tab\015\012is selected! --> Click Repair Disk Permissions. This may take a\015\012while, FYI. As soon as Disk Permissions have been repaired, restart\015\012your computer right away. That fixed the problem at my end. Good luck\015\012everyone!

Last but not the least !

I had this very same problem. At some point I suddenly realised that I\015\012wasn't hearing sounds through my internal speakers and the usual volume\015\012keys did not produce 'feedback' when trying to increase or decrease the\015\012volume. So I opened my 'System Preferences' and rather than see the\015\012usual option of 'Internal Speakers', all I saw was 'Headphones'\015\012greyed-out with no other option. \015\012
But fortunately the fix is immediate and simple. Plug-in a set of\015\012headphones, take them back out again and viola! Inside the 'phone jack\015\012is a small optical sensor that 'sees' when a pair of headphones are in\015\012the socket. Sometimes the sensor becomes dirty and therefore 'blind'\015\012and assumes headphones are still plugged-in when they obviously\015\012aren't. \015\012
Just for fun, when I applied this particular fix, I opened up my\015\012System Prefs again and as soon as I withdrew the headphones, the option\015\012'Internal Speakers' immediately appeared and the previous greyed-out\015\012'Headphones' was gone.

Hope this would help !
