If you are using Kodi and no sound will come through to the speakers, there are several things that can solve the issue.
Some fixes can be operating system specific such as Android, Fire TV Stick, or Windows.
There can also be hardware-specific problems with PC or Android devices.
Operating system and hardware issues will usually be widespread causing all apps not to work.
For example, if YouTube also does not work, there is likely a system-specific problem and not Kodi.
Almost all Kodi sound fixes are something simple such as the volume is muted or needs to be turned up.
5 Fixes for Kodi No Sound Problem
- Turn Sound Volume Up
- Move the controller and select Settings Gear Icon at the bottom right
- Select Audio Settings
- Adjust the volume level
- Kodi No Sound Red Icon
- Check Audio Output Device
- Toggle On Off Audio Pass-through
- Check the HDMI Cable
Pressing either symbol will increase or decrease the volume.
The volume can also be controlled while a video is playing by moving the controller and clicking the Settings Gear Icon.
How To Adjust Sound While a Video is Playing in Settings
Some Android TV boxes will use F9 for mute since F8 often opens the Google Play Store.
Be sure the right output is selected for the speakers you are using.
Go to Settings–>System and try to toggle it off or on and test if it works.
If the cable is bad, no sound will carry through to the speakers.
HDMI cable rarely goes bad, but if you check everything else and have a spare cable, it may fix a no sound issue.
Kodi is a great media player used by many thousands of people worldwide.
As good as it is, there are sometimes issues such as no sound going to the speakers.
This is usually a quick fix, and something simple but a more in-depth problem may be occurring, such as Drivers or components have gone bad.
The first step is to be sure it is not on mute, and the volume is turned up.
Next, check the audio output device is set correctly. While default usually works sometimes, it needs to be set manually.
Be sure the HDMI cable is good as it is what carries audio to your TV.
If all else fails, you may have a Driver problem or a bad system configuration that will be system-specific.
Often a system-specific problem will be overall sound outputs. For example, YouTube will also have audio problems.
