Troubleshooting sound

Sound not working for your project? Try the solutions below

  • Check your Raspberry Pi can play sounds. Play a sample sound by typing in a Terminal: aplay /usr/share/scratch/Media/Sounds/Vocals/Singer1.wav
  • If you are using HDMI and no sound is being played, you may need to tell the Raspberry Pi to output sound through the audio connector. Run the following command in a Terminal. amixer -c 0 cset numid=3 1
  • Make sure your speakers or headphones are plugged into the 3.5 audio jack and are turned on
