No sound from speaker


I am running Linux Mint 19.3 on an Asus Netbook. The speaker emits no sound, but there is sound in the headphones, and the alsamixer page shows that the file is being played.

I installed pavucontrol, and the speaker slider is also right up. I wonder if something is muting the speaker?

Help welcome!

Given that this is a netbook, it's probably got some years on it, so I'm inclined to suspect a hardware issue with the speakers.

Try booting from a Live CD of something and testing the speakers and headphones in live mode to verify that the speakers do indeed work.
