How to Fix Sound Issues on Roblox

Are you trying to figure out how you can fix sound issues on Roblox?

One of the most essential aspects that complete your gaming experience is sound effects. Without sounds, your games would feel dull, and you will surely miss some details of the game’s story or lore. 

This is the same case for the popular gaming creation platform Roblox

If you’ve been playing games on Roblox, you probably know by now that some of the best maps on the platform require a headset or earphones. This can either give you a hint of other players’ location or listen for a specific sound to know the location of an item. 

Unfortunately, many users have been experiencing sound issues on Roblox. When this happens, players won’t be able to hear anything from the game.

Based on what we know, this issue can be either a software or hardware issue. 

To help you diagnose the problem, we’ve decided to make a guide for fixing sound issues on Roblox. 

Let’s get right into it!

1. Check Your Volume. 

Before doing anything on your computer, the first thing that you should check when you experience sound issues on Roblox is to check your system volume. More often than not, your system volume is just turned down, explaining why there’s no sound on Roblox.

To check your system’s volume, follow the guide below: 

  1. First, right-click on the Speaker/Sound icon on your taskbar. 
  2. After that, select Open Volume Mixer
  3. Lastly, ensure that your Device and Roblox volumes are turned up.

Once done, go back to Roblox and check if the sound issue is solved. 

2. Choose the Correct Sound Device. 

Another reason why you’re experiencing sound issues on Roblox is if the wrong output device is selected on your system. Windows has a feature that allows you to choose a primary device for sound output if more than one is connected to your computer. 

Here’s what you need to do: 

  1. On your computer, click on the Speaker/Sound icon on the Taskbar
  2. Next, choose Open Sound Settings
  3. Finally, ensure that the correct sound device is selected under the ‘Choose Your Output Device’ option.
