When I open Iphoto there are no pictures, the circle thing

Customer Question

When I open Iphoto there are no pictures, the circle thing just spins around and around like it is searching.

My Pictures are in "all Images" and when I try to import nothing happens.

I have the latest I photo 9.11 and working on a snowleopard 10.6
Thanks Patti Kislak

Hi My name isXXXXX hope i can help you.

We can try to rebuild your iPhoto Library and see if that works or not..

Rebuild iPhoto Library
  1. Quit iPhoto if it is open.
  2. Hold down the Command and Option keys on the keyboard.
  3. Open iPhoto.
  4. Keep the keys held down until you are prompted to rebuild the library.
  5. A dialog will appear with rebuild options. Select all the options/checkboxes
  6. Click Rebuild to begin the rebuild process. This may take a few minutes to complete.

If that didn't worked then rebuild your iPhoto Library with this application, iPhoto Library Manager (just try the trial version) : http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/

Please follow the instructions in here to rebuild your iPhoto Library with iPhoto Library Manager : http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/Help/rebuilding%20a%20corrupted%20iphoto%20library.html

Let me know if that didn't worked..

Best Regards,

Now do you know how to restore sound on an IPAd?
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
Hi,
Sorry for the delay...Did you checked the Mute button ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
The little lock button by the sound? yes and I turned the sound up.
I can hear through my earphones but that's it.
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
Yes...Can you unplug the headphone from your iPad and plug it back. Repeat this 5 times..Does that worked ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
NO
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
You can reset your iPad. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button until your iPad restart itself.graphic

Sorry did not work.
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
When did this problem started ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
about 6 months ago
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
Six months ? Have you tried restoring it with iTunes ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
yes,
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
I think your iPad's internal speakers are fried. If your iPad is under Apple Care warranty, take it to the Apple Store and they will give you new one or fix it for free. I know this is not the answer you expected, but it seems to be a hardware problem than a software problem.

Thank you Ashik
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
You're most welcome ! Take it back to the Apple Store ASAP before the Apple Care expires.

Best Regards,
Ashik
