(I don't understand what you are saying here.)

Did you try playing your input file with ffplay?
Does it play? Did you try to seek?
Did you try to wildly click into the window that 
opened? (Did a window open?)
Did you try to press all buttons on your keyboard 
that might make sense when trying to seek?

I am assuming here that you are using a desktop 
system that allows ffplay to open a window. If 
this is not the case, you can try to seek with 
$ ffmpeg -ss 10 -i input out.wav

Please fix your quoting / please trim your quotes,
