I can't hear any sounds from my Pi 4. I tried all speaker tests, I've changed my sound output to HDMI1 which I use, and tried all suggestions. The sound just disappeared, without any warning at all. I don't understand what happened. Anyone has that same problem? And any solutions?

    Did the sound ever work? Any reason you can’t just re-flash your sd card?

    If you already tried all suggestions then we also cannot help. Your Raspberry Pi must be broken.

  • Even with the tests in tinkerboy.xyz/raspberry-pi-test-sound-output you did not hear a thing? I would try at least to insert in AV port an audio jack and perform the tests on that link

  • Also, I was able to hear sounds of downloaded files but not in Chromium, then I found this askubuntu.com/questions/284202/chromium-doesnt-play-sound and it solved the issue ;)

  • @CoderMike whats an sd card? Oct 8 '20 at 7:17

I just found out that it was all a misunderstanding and that the sound was controlled by another device. All I had to do was turn up the knob. Can someone tell me how to close this?

Can you try this script? I found it somewhere on the here, but it's been a long time and I don't remember where it is. I had this problem too, you should just need to execute this once.

sudo modprobe snd_bcmm2835
