(resolved) no sound

Post by seiko »

Hello,

Wondering if someone can help me to get sound.

Have HDMI connection to monitor, volumecontrol set to 50% on the monitor, volumecontrol set to 80% and HDMI set with ALSA applet.

DietPi config has soundcard rpi-bcm2835 and lsmod shows that snd_bcm2835 is loaded.

I am not a Linux specialist and out of ideas where to look further.

Hope someone can point me in the right direction.


Tried the 3.5mm jack with earphones, but nothing there either.

Regards,

Hi Seiko,

Please could you send me a bugreport, this will allow me to see your system settings.

Simply run the command below and follow the onscreen instructions. You'll need to run this in a terminal (eg: console or LXterminal in the lxde menu):

Code: Select all

dietpi-bugreport

Thanks,

Everything seems to be in order, alsa is installed correctly. Can you try the following in a terminal and let me know the results:

1. Test audio with aplay:

Code: Select all

wget http://www.wavsource.com/snds_2015-07-19_1628654123857389/movies/terminator/t1_be_back.wav
aplay -vv t1_be_back.wav
You should hear and see the audio being played. If not, let me know what happens.

2. Force HDMI audio output:

Code: Select all

amixer cset numid=3
aplay -vv t1_be_back.wav
3. Try another HDMI cable/device:
Has the audio + HDMI always worked on this screen? Have you tried another HDMI cable or socket on the TV?

Problem found. It was the monitor.

Works fine now on other one.

Thanks again for the support.
