Sound Not Working Through Speakers on Razer Blade 14 w/ Arch Hyprland

Hello Arch Linux Community,

I'm encountering an issue on my Razer Blade 14 where audio isn't playing through the laptop's built-in speakers. Headphones and Bluetooth audio devices work fine, but the speakers remain silent. My system uses WirePlumber and PipeWire for audio management, and I've noticed several errors in the WirePlumber logs that might be related. Notably, I initially didn't have alsamixer on my system, which prevented me from checking ALSA mixer settings directly. I have since installed alsa-utils to access alsamixer.

System Details:

Laptop Model: Razer Blade 14
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ma
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS w/ Rade
Kernel Version: `6.7.4-arch1-1`
Sound System: Using ALSA and PulseAudio
Recent Changes: updated packages

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

Issue Summary:

- No audio from built-in speakers, but audio works through headphones and Bluetooth.
- pavucontrol shows sound output from applications (e.g., Brave) but no system sound activity.
- WirePlumber is active and running, but logs indicate several errors.
WirePlumber Log Errors:

● wireplumber.service - Multimedia Service Session Manager
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/user/wireplumber.service; enabled; preset: enabled)
     Active: active (running)
   Main PID: 945 (wireplumber)

Feb 08 20:38:37 grimoire wireplumber[945]: ERROR IPAModule ipa_module.cpp:172 Symbol ipaModuleInfo not found
...
Feb 08 20:38:37 grimoire wireplumber[945]: SPA handle 'api.alsa.acp.device' could not be loaded; is it installed?
...
Feb 08 20:38:37 grimoire wireplumber[945]: Failed to call Lookup: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.portal.Error.NotFound: No entry for camera

Troubleshooting Steps Taken:

- Installed pipewire-pulse alsa-utils and accessed alsamixer to check and adjust audio settings.
- Verified WirePlumber and PipeWire services are active and running.
- Checked and switched sound output devices in pavucontrol.
- Reviewed WirePlumber and PipeWire configuration files for potential misconfigurations.

I'm at a bit of a loss for what to try next. Could the errors in the WirePlumber log be related to my speaker issue? Any guidance on how to resolve these audio issues or further steps to diagnose the problem would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Re: Sound Not Working Through Speakers on Razer Blade 14 w/ Arch Hyprland

ALSA and pulseaudio and wireplumber is a combination that doesn't make sense. You probably rather want to opt for pipewire-pulse which should in turn also depend on alsa-card-profiles wireplumber is complaining about.

If that didn't help already post

sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*
aplay -lL
systemctl --user status pulseaudio pipewire{,-pulse} wireplumber
pactl list cards

And post outputs (and adjust your OP in this regard) wrapped in bbcode code tags instead of markdown.
