Pinebook Pro - No Audio
#11
I am having audio issues as well.  I have tried the switch, and changing the output in settings.   A lot of the sound preferences are grayed out as if the soundcard is not present.

based on the dmesg output is the soundcard actually loading?

rock@PBP:~$ dmesg | grep sound

I had no audio out of the box aswell.


I was able to fix it by replacing the /var/lib/alsa/asound.state  using this guys script https://github.com/pfeerick/pine64-scrip...ker-fix.sh

I am having all of these symptoms of the issue too, bluetooth works fine, but the speakers won't do anything at all, even with trying to swap the OS a few times. I've done the MATE install, Manjaro, and back to the stock debian. Absolutely no sound from the speakers. 

Has there been any updates to this? I've tried everything in this thread but nothing works. It's nice that it works with bluetooth, but the syncing process with bluetooth on anything is just horrible.

I have a similar problem on running Manjaro. Very muffled sound as default, just audible when set to 150% in the volume control.
Opening alsamixer as sudo, there are two sliders on the left labeled "headphone". The left one is set to zero the right one to 100dB as default. Changing the left one to 100dB and exiting alsamixer restores sound perfectly and everything works. Problem is that this change in alsamixer does not survive a reboot. I have to change this manually every time.
Any idea how I can save this change in alsamixer permanently ?

Addendum

I tried "sudo alsactrl store" but settings are not loaded on reboot. I have to manually enter "sudo alsactrl restore" to load the saved settings. How can I get alsamixer to automatically reload stored settings ?
