In our Mac we are playing something in iTunes or Music. It can be very frustrating to not be able to listen to our music or watch our favorite shows because our audio is not working. To resolve this issue, we will need to verify the volume and connectors and then restart the sound controller. Finding our MacBook volume low or Bluetooth hiccups, that requires a little more work. Sometimes, we using a third-party app are the best way to get around here. If we want to see some other useful guides on different Mac issues.

“Volume on mac not working”
1. Check PRAM/NVRAM
PRAM/NVRAM and Terminal fixes for “mac sound not working”. Parameter Random Access Memory or Non-Volatile Random Access Memory. These two are not that common to be known, which appear in Power PC and Intel Macs respectively.
Steps to Reset PRAM/NVRAM
• We need to turn off our Mac and disconnect any USB devices other than wired keyboards.
• Then, we need to turn it back on and hold down the “option” button, the P and R buttons.
• Keep pressing those keys until our Mac restarts. And we hear a second start up chime or, on Macs with a T2 Security Chip. Until the Apple logo appears and disappears again.
2. Turn up the volume
The volume isn't turned down - press the Volume Up button, usually located on the F12 key in the top-right of the keyboard. When we click this an overlay should appear on our screen. If this doesn’t work then try clicking on the Volume option in the Menu bar at the top of the screen.
3. Check for Mac Hardware Issues
Sometimes it the port that is at fault. So, check there’s nothing plugged into the headphone out port and if you see a red light on that port. Then there is a problem with the port, or something blocking it from connecting our headphones. Try blowing on it to clear dust, if that’s the case.
