I don't know, but we can try to trouble shoot this.
Do you have ALSA installed? If so, you should have a text mode mixer:
"alsamixer". Open a Konsole and run this, and see if it works. If it doesn't,
you have probably a soundcard configuration issue. If it works, I suggest that
you close your KDE session and delete from the console the files:
"$HOME/.kde/share/config/kmixrc*", restart KDE and see if it is fixed.
