No sound from my RPi 3 B.



  • Thanks in advance. I’ve been searching the forum and have not found an solution for this. Currently I am running a Raspberry Pi 3 B. I have MM loaded and some modules loaded. I have a HDMI to DVI cable attached going to my monitor. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bill



  • @BillW dvi does not carry sound so you would need a separate cable

    My main computer has dvi, monitor is HDMI. Uses sep cable to monitor



  • I should have included in my first post, but I did attach a separate cable for sound to speakers, but that didn’t work so I tried earphones to make sure. Thanks for confirming that for me. Any other suggestions?



  • @BillW did the earphones work?



  • @sdetweil do system sounds work?







  • I’ll follow the link and check it out, then I’ll let you know what I did. Thanks for the guidance.





  • Ok, tried all three but no luck, not sure what to do next. Here’s a copy of my config file if that may help

    For more options and information see

    http://rpf.io/configtxt

    Some settings may impact device functionality. See link above for details

    uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default “safe” mode

    #hdmi_safe=1

    uncomment this if your display has a black border of unused pixels visible

    and your display can output without overscan

    #disable_overscan=1

    uncomment the following to adjust overscan. Use positive numbers if console

    goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border

    #overscan_left=16
    #overscan_right=16
    #overscan_top=16
    #overscan_bottom=16

    uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display’s size minus

    overscan.

    #framebuffer_width=1280
    #framebuffer_height=720

    uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output

    #hdmi_force_hotplug=1

    uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)

    #hdmi_group=1
    #hdmi_mode=1

    uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in

    DMT (computer monitor) modes

    #hdmi_drive=2

    uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, blanking, or

    no display

    #config_hdmi_boost=4

    uncomment for composite PAL

    #sdtv_mode=2

    #uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.
    #arm_freq=800

    Uncomment some or all of these to enable the optional hardware interfaces

    #dtparam=i2c_arm=on
    #dtparam=i2s=on
    #dtparam=spi=on

    Uncomment this to enable the lirc-rpi module

    #dtoverlay=lirc-rpi

    Additional overlays and parameters are documented /boot/overlays/README

    Enable audio (loads snd_bcm2835)

    #dtparam=audio=on
    [pi0]
    dtoverlay=dwc2
    [all]
    start_x=1
    gpu_mem=128
    dtoverlay=googlevoicehat-soundcard
    display_rotate=1
