Speak phat not playing sound


Just bought and installed the speaker phat and the LEDs work but I don’t hear any sound. I do hear sound through my HDMI. I’m new to Pi and soldering so I don’t really know where to begin sorting this out. Any help is appreciated.


Eek, sounds like the one-line-installer hasn’t poked the audio setup the right way, or it’s somehow switched back. Are you using the latest Raspbian Jessie? It’s possible something could have changed that we don’t expect yet.

Do you see anything if you open a terminal and type: cat ~/.asoundrc


Thanks, I didn’t have an .asoundrc file. After some trouble shooting, I think there was an issue with my soldering :|

I got the test file to work, now to move on to other things.
