Looking for a little bit help here. I've searched everywhere and couldn't find an answer. My 2013 27" iMac doesn't play sound with the speakers (movies, youtube, itunes, etc..) but when I go to "Preferences" and "audio" and click on any of the sound effects there, the effects are played trough the speakers. I can't turn off the "mute" option on that preference panel. Any idea how to solve this problem?
In Finder Go to
and delete those files from there (2 or 3 files)
Do not worry OS will recreate them.
Empty your trash
Select the output tab and see if you have something besides the internal speakers selected
