Hi there,

Looking for someone that would know how to swap my input plug (microphone)

To output (speakers)

I had a guy do this once for me, but darn it! When I backed up my PC it changed it back to normal settings ahhhhh so frustrating!

He did it remotely and was easy to do. But me I tried for hours no clue tried all I can think of 😞

Now lost contact with the guy who done it for me 😞

Please help = No sound **ahem**!

Thank you, Windows 10 AMD Athlon 64 bit Hyper X

Hey there, @bazingahuya. 👋

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with the volume.

  • Pandora has a separate volume control. Make sure it isn't all the way down, the volume control is located in the bottom right corner of the Pandora page.
  • If that's not it, make sure you are plugged into the main speaker outputs of your sound card. Sometimes there are two outputs. Pandora may only play from one of them on machines with some sound drivers. Updated drivers have fixed this for many listeners. This is also something you can Google for your specific device.
  • If on a Windows machine, make sure that the "Wave Balance" volume is set at least 50% on your advanced volume control window. This is accessible by double-clicking the speaker in the lower-right corner of your screen.

++

Could you share a bit more about how you're listening to Pandora on your computer?

  • Are you using a Windows or MAC?
  • Pandora Desktop App?
  • Or, are you using a web browser? If so, which one?
  • Have you received any error messages? If so, what does it say?

Let me know. 🎧

I also can't hear any music when I click on it. I am on a MacBook Air. I have tried both chrome and safari. When I click the play button nothing happens. It still has the play button there (no pause icon). No error message. And the songs change as if I can hear it, but no sound. I am able to hear for any other website except pandora. I used to be able to hear it on this computer. It hasn't been working for a few months. I still listen on my phone.

I have a desktop computer and previously had great sound, but now all of a sudden - no sound.  It is not within my computer.  I have sound for everything except Pandora.  I just subscribed and  I am wondering

if I did the right thing.

Volume Control:

  • Pandora has a separate volume control. Make sure it isn't all the way down, the volume control is located in the bottom right corner of the Pandora page.
  • If that's not it, make sure you are plugged into the main speaker outputs of your sound card. Sometimes there are two outputs.

  • If on a Windows machine, make sure that the "Wave Balance" volume is set at least 50% on your advanced volume control window. This is accessible by double-clicking the speaker in the lower-right corner of your screen.

I found this help page that may also be helpful for your sound settings here.

If you continue to have trouble, could you share a few more details about how you're listening?

  • How are you listening to Pandora? Are you using a MAC or Windows computer?
