Headphone/ speaker Jack not working

Question: Headphone/ speaker Jack not working

Hello I've bought my Lenovo laptop about half a year ago. From the very beginning the headphone audio jack had some problems, there would be no sound when headphones are plugged in, however restarting the laptop usually helped. I have not had this problem for a few months until now. When I plug in headphones, no sound comes out and restarting the computer does not help. Furthermore, the sound of the laptop speakers seems to be a big different than it normally used to be - the sound is a bit lower and so to say ''dimmer''. Please let me know I could fix it.

I had to have the hard drive replaced in my computer due to a defect in the drive. Ever since the hard drive was replaced, the head phone plug-in that is on the face of the tower does not work, but the speaker plug-in that is located in the back of the tower, works just fine.

I cannot figure out what is wrong. The audio driver installed for my system was obtained from the Dell website along with the majority of my other drivers.
Any help would be great.

Alright, so here's the problem. I just recently got this computer and plugged it into the VGA port and the sound wouldn't work. I plugged Logitech External Speakers into it and the computer didn't even acknowledge that it was there. I plugged in Headphones to see if those worked and they didn't aswell. I asked the guy who I got the computer from and he said that it (sound) would work when plugged in using HDMI. So I did that and the sound does work, but only through the TV speakers. It still doesn't acknowledge the speakers or the headphone s when plugged in. So I wen t and grabbed some other speakers I had and tried those and It still didn't recognize the speaker. My question is: How Do I Get My Computer To Recognize My Speakers? Any help would be much appreiciated.

I have a 2.1 speaker set attached to my laptop that does not have its own headphone jack. So in order to listen to headphones I have to unplug the 2.1 from the headphone jack and plug in the headphones. I tried a cheap splitter but that didn't sound good.

What I would like is something that had two jacks that allowed me to keep the 2.1 plugged in all the time in one jack and when I want to use the headphones I could just plug them into the other jack. I would like both jacks whether used together or solo to have the same sound quality as a single jack... with no degradation in sound.

Lastly, I would like to be able to mute the 2.1 (using volume control on the speaker set) and still get great controllable sound out of the jack that have the headphones plugged in.

Is there something like that? Thanks.

Hi, Omarattia  ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
You can also start by flushing out all static, remove battery and AC adaptor and hold down power button for about 15 seconds.
 
Check the Playback Devices under Sound Properties (by going to Control Panel > Sound > Playback Devices and see if the Headphone is being set as the default playback device. If not, click on it and set it as the default playback device, try to play a sample sound and observe.

does it do anything becasue i plugged in my headphones but I dont hear any sound coming out from it.. these is the one on the cd drive and their is also a volume adjuster next to it... but its not working. thanks _ John

Answer:whats the speaker headphone jack on the cd drive??

its analogue sound for cd's. its normally not used. in fact i think its been sort of obsolete since windows 98. there is an option somewhere in media player to disable digital sound for cd's or something along those lines which will probably allow you to use headphones on the front jack

I've recently been having a problem with my headphones. The computer recognizes that I've plugged them in but it still uses the external speakers and there's no sound coming through the headphones. I've tried more than one pair of headphones and it still doesn't work. Restarting the computer worked once but not anymore.

Answer:Speaker/headphone/audio jack problem

There is usually a hardware switch in the socket, which is engaged when you put the plug in. Seems like it might be mechanically broken.

On my C50 the sound is fine through the laptop speakers but when I plug in a jack to the headphone socket the sound only comes out through the right speaker. When you do a test of the IDTspeaker, you can hear both left and right sounds but both come from the right speaker (like its in mono). There is no headphone device appearing in the sound playback devices - looking at some fora it looks like there should be. I have reinstalled the idt driver from Toshiba site (2014). I have also used windows to get the latest sound driver but none of this helps. it did work before and seems to have gone wrong after a windows 8 update. Can anyone help please?

I'm guessing that it's probably just a compatibility issue... or just how it is, but I'm curious:

I updated my laptop from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro a while back. It started out as just a minor inconvenience, but it's getting to be very annoying. When I plug in my external speakers (via the headphone jack) or my headphones, Windows doesn't automatically switch the sound output to the headphone jack. I have to manually switch it ("Manage Audio Devices"). The same is true for the reverse, when I unplug my headphones.

Is there any way around this, or is it likely an issue with the compatibility of my sound card?

Please and thank you!

Answer:Headphone jack/on board speaker issue

Do you have the correct Windows 7 drivers for your Audio system? The XP drivers are not compatible and you need at a minimum Vista drivers as Vista and Windows 7 handle sound functions differently than XP.

On most newer "HD Audio" systems the jack is "auto sensing" and switches "logically". On many older PC systems that is a mechanical function with the jack.

Answer:Audio combo jack vs headphone/earphone with mic and speaker connector

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
On your computer the audio jacks along with the USB port are mounted on a card that is separate from the motherboard.  The two are then connected with a ribbon cable.  If your headphone jack is inoperable with more than one pair of headphones and the USB port does not work would be a good indication of a problem with the card.   
 
Just to rule out a possible hardware conflict try doing a BIOS reset.  Just do this.......
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Remove the battery. 3. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 4. Re-install the battery, plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
If the reset did not correct the problem then I would suspect either the audio card is faulty or the ribbon cable has become disconnected.  In that case I would suggest you contact Lenovo Support for additional service especially if your warranty is still active.  You can find the phone number for Lenovo Support in your country or area by using the link below....http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/supportphonelist_alt1

Hello, Something is stuck inside my headphone jack (really no idea what, it looks like some amber colored resin) This caused no problems until i tried to stick my headphones in (because i didn't know there was something else inside)Now the little switch inside is activated and i can't use my normal speakers anymore. Pulling the thing out is not possible it really seems glued inside, i can remove small parts of it by scratching with a screwdriver but i see no way to remove it without a drill. I googled for ways to shut off the port so i can revert back to the normal speakers (i really don't care about losing the headphone jack, i normally only use speaker sound) It seems the installed realtek drivers allow no option to deactivate it. I tried reinstalling the realtek driver, changed registry option "EnableDynamicDevices" but didnt find the more promising "ForceDisableJD".  The Windows driver also didn't help and i didn't find any other drivers available for this notebook. The BIOS also didn't have any option for this (but maybe i'm just bad at finding it) Is there any way to disable the port on the software side or a way to disconnect the hardware? I have soldering equipment here. I really don't care for a clean solution anymore, just hoping for a way to get the sound. Thanks for your help. Edit: whoops almost forgot the essentials: this is a lenovo z510 with win7 64bit that was not pre-installed (bought without OS)

Hello Jimco,
I have a Dell 5548 with a 1080p touch screen, Core i5 &12GB of Ram. After updating to windows 10 I have had a number of issues with this laptop.
1)The most annoying of all is that the speaker volume fluctuates from high to low at any given setting which is extremely frustrating. One time its loud then all of a sudden it reduces then a few seconds later its up again. Is this a hardware issue or a software issue as this didn't happen on windows 8.1?
2)The Headphone Jack is too tight. If I try too insert any earphones or headphones it will go in to a certain degree then i have to apply force but it still wont go in. If i try to apply more force it seems that it will break as there is a creaking sound. sound from the speakers isn't fine and i cant even use earphones :(
3) My laptop has a real sense camera and it just stops using its infrared sensors or depth sensors when setting up windows hello. It tells me to place my face in the centre of the screen and then no response even though i can see what the webcam is showing me. 
I hope you can answer my questions as it would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

Hello. Download this Win8.1 IDT audio driver for the Inspiron 14z 5423. There are two versions there -- get the one that says "File Format Hard Drive". Follow the installation instructions and see if the driver shows up in Device Manager.
If it doesn't, perform the PSA or ePSA sound test. If no sound during the test then there has been hardware failure. Could have happened during parts replacement.

Also if i wiggle the the headphones jack inside the pc it somtimes will play properly for a split second then go back to playing on one side.

It is recommended to fill out your system specs. I have no idea what your system is or what audio driver/manager you are using.

If you have a realtek HD audio card- Install the audio manager, and set it to allow setting to pop up when jacks are used. That way you can tell it if you inserting headphones,mic, etc, and it will mute the external speakers and use the headphones-otherwise it plays out the speakers (this is common if you have a realtek card, and use the default Microsoft hd sound driver/software codecs. You may also note the "volume knob" does not work)

If you have a realtek card install the realtek driver/audio manager here:http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false

hi Niphoros,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Just to verify, do you get a pop-up notification whenever you plugged-in a headphone / earphone?
- Link to picture
 
If yes then your issue is most likely similar to this article.As per these specs, the Y50 uses an audio combo jack (headphone and mic). Although this port supports various mobile headphones, you may need to get a PC Headset to 3.5mm Smartphone Adapter if you're using a traditional headset with a separate.audio and mic connector.

Answer:Headphone jack not working!

If you are inserting the headphones once film has started, chances are the film has already picked up the sound device as speaker and wants to use that. changing in the middle of something often results in no sound, for me at least. try plugging phones in before you turn the computer on, and leave them in. hopefully that should cure it. Please note the word hopefully...

Hello, thank you for taking the time to read my topic, and hopefuly reply.

Earlier today, I was on my laptop, and I closed the lid, headphones plugged in and working, operating perfectly fine, and locked the door behind me.

In no less then 2 minutes I returned, and the computer acted as if the headphones were not plugged in at all, playing from the built in speakers. I tried different pairs of headphones, all don't work, and I see no visible problems with any of them, I've checked them over multiple times for tears, exposed wires, and the like.

I think it may be something with the headphone jack itself internally, but frankly I know nothing about how the computer is built, so I wouldn't know.

I appreciate you taking the time to read this, thank you in advance.

I do apologize to say but it sounds like you have gone through all the troubleshooting I could recommend witout having the system sent in for repair. If the jack is not working when you connect your headphones and they do not show up in the Playback tab, then I would recommend contacting technical support in your region for repair options.

Answer:Y50 Headphone Jack Not Working

hi
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
The Y50 Supports a combo jack 3.5mm type of connection
This is a Mic and Earphone in just one jack. and not separate. Making it different as it has a different connector inside and touches the Plug Differently.
 
Can you try a combo jack on your Computer first and check if it will work. if it will work then You can get youself a Combo jack converter which can convert your two plug (mic and earphone) into just one plug combojack.
 

 
Hope this helps

Answer:Headphone Jack Not Working

It looks like, with the "High Definition Audio Device" that you only have the basic function Windows installed sound drivers.

Try installing the PC Vendor's sound driver. Same way for HDMI install the Video Card vendor's drivers.

Hi, I have an HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC. Over the past few months my headphone jack has not been working properly. It started off with the headphones having to be held in a certain place to prevent sound coming out of the speakers at the same time as the headphones (I have tried every pair of headphones i own) . Over time, this has been getting worse and now, sound comes out of the speakers regardless of whether i have any heaphones plugged in. The headphone jack is really wobbly and i'm assuming i'll need to take my pc to a repair shop?Thanks in advance

I have just tried my headphone jack for the first time and the sound does not come through them. They still come out of speakers despte the headphone being plugged in. I have tried the headphones on other devices and they work fine. Looking on YouTube I have updated the drivers  and then put my headphones in the headphone socket, and checked the Sound driver (Realtek HD Audio) on the "Playback devices" tab -  it shows a headphone icon with a red down arrow next to it with a description "Realtek HD Audio 2nd Output" and "Not Plugged In". How do I get this socket to "plug in"  ? Or is this a hardware problem ? Thanks in advance for anyone's help.

Hello,On my W520 (4276-37U), my headphone jack suddenly stopped working.The headphone is recognized because all music/sound stop playing from the speaker but everything I hear from the headphone jack is noise. I tested 2 good headphones, both are not working. I hear a noise constantly, music playing or not. Volume control doesn't change anything to the noise output either. Tried to reboot the computer. Tried to reinstall audio driver. Noting is working.I doubt that is an hardware issue.I was listening to music on iTunes, leaved my computer for a few minute, when I came back my iTunes was still playing music but my headphone was only outputting this noise. Any idea? Happened to anybody? Thank you,Martin

Hey everybody, I have a very important question. My tablet's headphone jack is having a problem, and no matter what headphones I use when I turn the volume all the way up, it only has the volume of turning it about 1/4 or 1/5 of the way up. When it happened I was playing my guitar to some music, and I have the volume up all the way so I could still hear the music over the guitar. But then I heard some static and the sound went out. My first thought was that YouTube messed up and the video froze, but I quickly realized that that wasn't the problem. So I thought it was the headphones, which I've had since Christmas and they were only $20. Then I tried with my Dad's headphones and I have the same problem. My tablet is in good condition, as I've only dropped it a couple times on carpet and I never dropped it into any water or anything. But then again, I don't think that would have anything to do with it because it just randomly cut out while playing a YouTube video.

(BTW, I'm using a 8GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook)

Answer:Headphone Jack Not Working Right

I really hope it isn't the case, but it almost sounds like you pushed the internal DAC too hard :s

What did you have plugged into the headphone jack when the issue first happened (when you were playing your guitar)?

Dear chrisadams96,
 
Welcome in Lenovo Community.
 
I would like to confirm that you are using a 3.5 mm combo jack head set that have 3 metal rings around the Jack.
 
If the one that you are using isn't a combo jack headset so i would recommend to use a one.
 
Waiting for your kind reply.

Well, I have a new computer. And I recently bought a Headset & Microphone, to play games with. It was all working perfect, until my brother plugged in the Headset plug, into the microphone port. And I disconnected it because it was wrong. Then, when I went to plug it into the Headset Port, it wouldn't read.

I've checked the headset to see if it was the plug, but it wasn't. I opened my computer to check if the connections to the port are okay, and they are. I believe it might be a software issue, but not sure as to what to do now.

Many thanks if you can help me.

Answer:Headphone Jack Not Working

I tend to think it's a hardware problem, but to make sure open up your Device Manager and expand all of the +'s. Look for yellow exclamation points. That would indicate the problem device. Also check your sound and microphone configuration. I know this link is for skype, but it addresses the same problem and has pretty detailed solutionshttp://www.skype.com/help/guides

My laptop speakers work fine however, and I tried re-installing drivers. I made sure that my headphones are the default playback device, and I only have one headphone jack.

Other people who had this issue solved it by replacing their audio jack, but for me that is not a problem because the audio jack works fine when I boot into Fedora.

Please help!

Answer:Laptop speakers working, but headphone jack not working only on Window

Normally, the "Speakers" (PC sound) is set as the Default Playback device and not Headphones. In fact, newer RealTek sound systems do not even show the Headphones when plugged in.

Are you using the correct sound drivers? Not the generic Windows installed High Definition Audio Codec.

What all is listed in the Device Manager, Sound section?

2) I tried with microsoft fix it, but I had nothing changed.

can anyone advice me what I can do?
 

Answer:Speaker/headphone not working

Hey Auto2. The first thing I would do is bring your machine up to SP3 as it's been out for years now. XP with SP2 is not supported. You can download then double-click on the self executing SP3 file from the link below. This 316MB file is for the 32bit version of XP which most people have.Disregard the IT Pros nomenclature, takes about 15-20 minutes on average to install once you start it.

I recently got a pair of new headphones. Eager to try them out I plug them into my laptop audio jack. They worked perfectly with no problems and they sounded great.

Only a few hours later I decide to use them on my lappy again and the audio was only coming out of the left headphone speaker. This irritated me and I instantly thought that the headphones were faulty. I plug them into my ipod and notice the headphones are working fine. This leads me to think that it is something wrong with my laptop. I plug in a different pair of earphones into the jack and again, the left side only works.

I am confused as to whether it is my settings or my headphone jack but I'm more inclined to think that it is my headphone jack which is the problem. Is there anyone who has had a similar problem or anyone who may have an idea as to how to fix this?

Thanks,
Nick

I just got the phone, a little over a month ago. I had headphones plugged in to it before, but, now none of them work. Whenever I plug my headphones into the headphone hole, (I don't know the name for it, sorry.) the only audio that comes out is from the speaker in the phone instead of the headphones. I went to bed one night and they worked fine before I went to bed, the next morning nothing worked.

Answer:My headphone jack isn't working on my windows phone. Help?

Hi there,
It is possible that some dirt might have gotten into the headphone jack. Please try blowing it out with compressed air and let us know if that helps.

The main speakers are working fine, but there is almost no sound when I plug in my headphones. I have to put the volume up to 100% to hear anything at all, and sound only comes out of the left side. The right side makes a repeated clicking/tapping noise.

My headphones work fine in other devices, and I have tried multiple pairs in this laptop only to achieve the same result.

It is definitely plugged all the way in.
The sound worked fine until today, and I have had this laptop since January.

The subject and content of your posting are confusing me.
> The main speakers are working fine, but there is almost no sound when I plug in my headphones.
Normally when you use headphones built in speakers should stop working and you should hear sound on headphones only. After disconnecting headphones built in speakers should work again.

> I have to put the volume up to 100% to hear anything at all, and sound only comes out of the left side. The right side makes a repeated clicking/tapping noise.
Is this what happen with headphones when you connect them to the headphone jack?

I have had Windows 8 since last November or December and only until recently I have had problems with the headphone jack. My laptop is Dual boot between Linux and Windows 8. Linux was put on after the Windows 8. I know there isn't anything physically wrong with the jack itself, because the headphone jack works perfectly fine in linux. I have tried to search the internet for solutions and I haven't found anything that is helpful, so I have come here.
My laptop is a Dell Inspiron N5110 that came with Windows 7. I had a few problems with drivers when I first put Windows 8 on the laptop. The display driver needed an update, but that was easily fixable. I don't think that this is a driver update problem because the headphone jack DID work, just recently has it stopped working.
I have tried to go into the device manager and search for driver updates, nothing. I am attaching link to a picture of my device manager incase it is helpful:

The EBT1000 headset and headphones I'm pretty sure are for my HP headset. I have tried right clicking on the sound icon and clicking on playback devices and showing all disabled devices like some websites said to do.

Hello! The headphone jack on my yoga worked yesterday, but not today.  When I plug headphones into the jack, the audio continues to play out of my yoga's internal speakers.  I did nothing to change the software of the computer since then, and the computer has not suffered any hardware damage like a drop, but it has been cold recently had I commute by bike with the laptop in my backback, so it will be exposed to 20 degree temperatures (F) for 15 mintues at a time. I updated the BIOS and audio drivers to no avail.  Is there a quick fix to this or do I need to send it in for repair? Thanks!
