View Full Version : [ubuntu] USB speakers stopped working; sound not functional

September 6th, 2010, 04:04 AM
I've suddenly developed "no sound" at all- I use Logitech USB speakers and have been doing fine until this weekend when they simply won't play any longer. I searched and followed a bunch of different troubleshooting to no avail. I am running 9.10 with all the latest updates. I ran apt-get update and upgraded following this to be sure while doing this troubleshooting.

I went ahead and ran the also information script and the output is here:

The speaker lights are on so there is power getting there.
I re-set the sound preferences to use the usb as output device and cranked the volume up all the way. This preference does not seem to stay between reboots or even when checking while troubleshooting this problem.

Any help greatly appreciated.

I was just able to get my wife's Bose sounddock to play using the motherboards headphone out and setting the internal card to analog stereo output. Could the USB speakers simply have died or is there something else I'm missing??
