Answer: y410p - Bead stuck in headphone jack, is this normal?

hi philrobichaud7,

There shouldn't be a bead there....
If you can pick it up with a pin needle or some sort, or best if you have a technician look at it,
If your not comfortable doing so, I suggest you contact technical Support about this matter and had them take care of it
Call Support and check what are your options on having this resolved.

Regards
Solid Cruver

Answer:Redlight from headphone jack not work (Y410p)

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
I am assuming that you did a One Key Recovery and restored your operating system to a like new condition ? 
 
The red light should be OFF when everything is working properly on the your model.  If you did the One Key Recovery then the restoration corrected a driver problem with the audio that was causing the red light.

Hello everyone, I just bought a Lenovo ideadpad Y410p yesterday and everything was going well, all except for one thing. I could not plug in any earpiece(I tried various models) or the headphone that came along as a free gift into my earpiece/headphone jack fully... they would always get stuck midway even when I tried using a little more force or using the connectors that were provided.. Even though they were stuck midway in, the computer still registered the plugging in of an audio device but I could only hear the sounds from a side occasionally or none at all. They all fit into my mic jack though but the sounds all came from the speakers. I am no tech expert so does anyone know how to help me solve this problem? Is it a defect?

Possible Solution:
Put Windows to Sleep, then wake it up. Headphone jack audio will be restored.

Problem:
Headphone jack randomly stopped outputting audio.
volume control at 100% and appearing to work normally. Laptop internal speakers worked fine.
Windows detects headphones plugged in, but no sound in headphones.
Uninstall sound card and realtek drivers, reboot did not fix problem.

Tested Linux live CD and headphones worked in Linux.
So hardware was definitely not broken. Only Windows was broken.

(I had this issue recently, so I'm leaving this here for search engine results and anyone who has this problem in the future)

Answer:Possible fix when headphone jack has no audio, everything else normal

Holy crap i love you! I reinstalled Windows 7 recently to fix this problem after trying just about everything, but after a couple of Windows updates my headphone jack wasn't working again. Found your post after filtering search results to recent hits and this trick worked! This problem only creeped up a short while ago, so maybe it has to do with recent Windows updates.

Something plastic ended up stuck inside the headphone jack on my laptop. Now I can't get the speakers to play because it thinks it has headphones in it. I cannot afford to have it removed right now. Is there someway to get the speakers to work anyway? I have tried disabling the headphone function on the computer but it has the head phones and  speakers connected.

i have a laptop computer and made the mistake of using my daughter's headphones. the tip came off of the plug-in part and is stuck inside the hole. any ideas on how i can get it out so i'm not stuck using dora the explorer headphones for the rest of my computer's life?
 

Answer:Stuck headphone jack

You could try using a paper clip to fish it out (MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF IF YOU START POKING AROUND INSIDE THE SOCKET). Unfortunately the socket is usually surface mounted to the edge of the motherboard. If you are handy with a soldering iron you could probably remove the socket and install a new one. Failing that it's "Dora the Explorer" for you!

Hello, I have a problem, which many people probably have encountered at some point.

I have this Asus K73SV notebook, but the incident happened - my headphones jack broke and is now stuck inside my notebook. Unfortunately, I can't get it out and my computer still considers that little piece as headphones so my internal speakers makes no sound.

How can I make this work? I have Realtek drivers and I don't have that option where I could disable that jack, doesn't matter which version or from where I download those drivers. And I can only see speakers through my control panel.

I saw there is an option where you can use ForceDisableJD in registry, but there is no such option in my registries.
What should I do? I tried to fix this for the whole day and I'm completely lost.
Thanks in advance.

P.S. Sorry for bad english.

Answer:Broken headphone jack stuck, how to play through speakers?

Try a magnet to see if you can get the broken plug out. You can also try to super glue something to the plug and see if you can pull it out.

Recently, while playing unreal tournament, I realize there was no sound coming out of the speaker once I unplugged my headphones. I restarted thinking that it would fix the problem, but that didn't help, so I decided to uninstall and reinstall the sound driver from realtek, no good either. Finally I deicided to reformat my computer using the recovery partition. Reassuring myself that this will definitely solve the problem I was shock and confuse as to why no sound came out of the speaker after the recovery. After going to the Realtek sound control panel I realize that the computer thinks or detected that a headphone was plugged in when clearly it wasn't. The sound does work with the headphone in and I am sure the speaker is not damaged because the POST sound, "boommmmm", comes during bootup. I really don't understand what is going on, and I already reformatted the harddrive 2 times.

I have read that the problem can be temporarily solve by replacing the motherboard, but after about a week or two, the same problem will arise. I have also read that other brands including HP, DELL and Sony has similar problems.

I can live without the speakers but I am not sure if further problems will persist with this laptop, since its only been month that I have purchased it.

Thanks for many reply/help.
 

Answer:Asus G1S speakers not working (stuck in headphone jack mode)

Just some real quick ideas

Speakers plugged into power outlet and on
Speakers plugged into back jack securely
(actually if you heard the startup booom sound, then they must be)

Sound volume up on speaker
Sound volume up on Windows
Sound volume up in the game that you are using
(That might be it)

If you play a song (through Windows media player) can you hear it ?
If so this must be an in game setting (ie mute sound) Please check all settings in the game.

Not sure how or why it broke off. At first it was just dangling near the front of the socket, so I tried to get it out with tweasers. That failed, I just pushed it back further in. Now it is basically at the back of the socket and I can't get any sound out of my T400 beacuse it is running through that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated pls Is there any way to get back there by taking the laptop apart? What are my options?

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)

Whenever I plug in my headphones into the jack, I no longer get a notification telling me my headphones are plugged in and Audio comes out of both the Headphones and the laptop speakers. This happend recently and didn't happen before. I have tried multiple headphones, all to the same effect. I am thinking this is a hardware issue. Does anybody have any solutions to fix?

Dear AlvinLee
 
Welcome in lenovo community
 
Method A:
1.  Go to the Control Panel by right click the bottom left corner in "Desktop" mode.
2.  Search for "Realtek HD Audio Manager".
3.  Set the headphone as communication device (see image below).
 
 
 
Also please let me know if you can hear also the sound from the headphone itself

Hello,
 
I just purchased a new notebook, and I have a bit of a problem. When I plug headphones into the side headphone jack, the sound quality is downright terrible. Very shortly I noticed that it didn't sound as good/decent as my older notebook.
 
The speakers seem to sound fine, well you know - as good as laptops can sound. 
 
Right now I have two notebooks side by side: 
a friends Samsung Series 3 (NP300E5C), with Windows 8 (upgraded from W7) / Microsoft High Definition audio
my Toshiba L50 Windows 8 / Realteck High Definition
 
I dont have my older notebook anymore, but I do remember it sounding better. Comparing this Toshiba to the Samsung (both sitting on the desk side-by-side), the Toshiba sounds a little better through the speakers, but there is no comparison with the headphone - The Samsung is pretty decent while the Toshiba makes me cry. 
 
Now granted, I'm not expecting a symphony, but if I cant solve this I'm going to have to sell the Toshiba.
 
I've tried uninstalling Realtek, but I couldn't get the sound to work.
Re-installing Realtek solved nothing
 
One thing I noticed, there is no 'headphone' icon in the device manager (Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound / or simply right click the audio icon in the taskbar). Are the headphones not high definition or something?

Answer:Laptop with combined mic/headphone jack, how to connect both mic & headphone ?

I haven't used one that had the port as a combined unit but I would assume you would need a headphone set with mic that has combined wiring, such as sets used for cell phones and such. You can also purchase an adapter that will split the port into 2 ports for mic and headphones.
Hope that gives you an idea

Hello Eight Forums.

My trouble is the audio output through headphones - background is louder than foreground (especially in music - I often cannot hear the vocals at all; movies however are mostly fine, for reasons unknown to me; but generally, the sound is always different in some way).

I only have one pair of headphones to test it with. However these always worked fine with previous machines, and still do work fine with my iPhone 4. Although they are surely not the case, I cannot with confidence say that if it were a loudspeaker instead things wouldn't have been different.

So this is either a software or a hardware issue.

Software

My computer (details at the bottom) came with a SoundBlaster X-Fi MB3 equalizer program and RealTek High Def Audio drivers. I've uninstalled SoundBlaster hoping it would fix the issue (I didn't need an extra program like that anyway) but alas to no avail. Updating the RealTek drivers did no good still.

The only thing I haven't touched is the ghostly NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (can it be the source of my trouble?) - I only first noticed it now when copy/pasting the Belarc data. I'll try and find out about it in the meanwhile.

Hardware

I wonder if it perhaps has something to do with my audio jack (laptop's brand new, but you can never know). I have what appears to be mic, headphone, S/PDIF and line in jacks... Is there a way to use the microphone or the line-in to test the headphones? To see if the headphone out is broken.

Any help appreci... Read more

Answer:Messed up headphone audio; want to check headphone jack

First, the "My System Specs" is where you fill in what you have.

Does the internal speakers on the laptop work? Is the audio OK on the internal speakers?

The SoundBlaster program(s) is a software enhancement to the basic audio chip (ReaklTek). Many PC's now come with some type of enhancement such as the SoundBlaster or in the case of HP PC's its "Beats Audio".

Well, I uninstalled my audio drivers and noticed that there was a red led shining from inside the 3.5mm headphone jack, which I assume is a mini optical audio (digital) combo 3.5mm audio (analog) jack, and I am figuring that it determins if there is an optical plug or not using drivers, which is why it turned on when I unistalled my audio drivers. I would like to know for sure before I go and buy a mini optical to toslink adpater cable so I can get better audio quality out (the digital interface does not suffer from the interference that the analog does right?). I did some research (research is a bit of an overstatement) and found no sites that mentioned it, so I have decided to turn to the forums. So, is this an optical jack combo? And, how will it work in terms of the drivers, will it just auto select? Thanks.

Answer:3.5 mm headphone jack won't fit in headphone/mic combo jack.

JSmith887Do I need an adapter for this?
No it should go in. We have been getting reports of tight jacks. Don't know if it's a quality control issue. Try some different ones and insert more firmly than normally.
If none will go in all the way, but you do hear the audio, I wouldn't be too concerned. If not getting audio (the selection popup does not appear) because it won't go in, then contact tech support or send it back.

If you purchased complete care from Dell you can call into Dell Alienware Support at 1 (877) 330-9732. If you did not you can possibly take it back to the store you purchased it from to see if they can help you. You can also try removing it yourself. Just make sure that it is unplugged before attempting to remove it.

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.

Hi,

I am using a Tiny Media Notebook PIII, 700, Windows 98 SE. The computer is about four years old, and by now the headphone jack, which I use as my sound out port, is about fryed. The contacts have deteriated, and I can not replace the jack, as it is connected to the motherboard. Thus, aside from opting for a usb sound out, such as taking up the Soundblaster MP3+ option, I was wondering if I could reprogram the way in which sound is connected to external devices such as headphones. There are three jacks on the front of my computer: the headphone jack, the microphone jack and er I think it is a line out jack - the later jack which I have never used. Is there anyway I can swop/substitute the connection via the headphone jack say for the microphone jack or line out jack. Is there anyway I could do this?
 

Answer:Substituting the headphone jack with the microphone jack

No, afraid not. Each jack has it's own circuitry which provides for the needed resistance and other parameters. What you could do, if you got to the mobo itself, is to physically replace the jack but that's a major pain on a laptop.

You can try two things, one is to use alcohol and a Q-Tip to thoroughly clean the jack, then use a small bit of steel wool to sand inside with and then again with the alcohol and two, if the jack's worn too big for a tight connection, is to go to Radio Shack and buy a plug in adapter for that size jack. Some come with a slightly oversized male end and then you could plug into the female end and have a tight connection.

I'd like to plug my speakers into the back speaker jack and headphones to the front jack. I can't do this and have both work at the same time. I have a cheapo Insight speaker with a volume puck that lets me plug a headphone jack but then the speakers turn off.

Seems to me with front panel and rear panel jacks I should be able to do this but so far, I'm stumped.

Any ideas?

Answer:How to configure headphone jack and speak jack together

Depends on the sound card you got. Realtek HD Audio Manager has a Device Advanced Settings option at top right, You can un-tick "Mute rear output ..." and see if it works.

I purchased  a  3.5mm 4 Position TRRS Male to 2x 3 Position TRS Female Headset Splitter Adapter for my hyperx cloud headphones to plug into my XPS 15, except the microphone isn't working when its plugged in.
When I plug them in a window comes up 'which device did you plug in?' Mic in, Line in, Dell Devices (lists random unknown devices to me), Headphones/headset - headphones medium, external speakers - external speakers medium. Are these details correct? should something about the microphone come up also? I go to sound options, recording and it's still using the microphone in the laptop.
I tested the headphones on another laptop without the jack and the microphone on the headset is working great. So it's either the splitter isn't doing it's job... or something to do with the laptop, any ideas?

Answer:XPS 15 9560 Headphone jack function as a mic jack?

Well for your case, the headSET option would be correct, since that means a device that offers both headphones (audio out) and a mic -- but note that you do apparently also have a Mic In option, though this would prevent audio output to the headphones.  However, if selecting the headset option isn't working, the issue with the TRRS "standard" is that it isn't a standard. The industry never agreed on which pins would be used for which connectors (Ground, Mic, Left Audio, Right Audio).  I think Samsung did it one way and Apple did it another, for example, and this of course causes interoperability issues.  So if choosing "headset" isn't working, it's probably because the XPS is expecting Option A and your splitter is wired for Option B.Theoretically, given that the audio chipset allows the pins to be dynamically assigned to various purposes depending on the device that's plugged in, it MIGHT be possible to have a "Headset" and "Headset (Alternate Mode)" device option in order to accommodate both TRRS configurations, but I seem to recall one of the TRRS implementation differences being where the Ground pin was placed, and maybe that pin can't be reassigned simply via software, which might explain the absence of such an option. Sorry!

If the Recorder as a output jack, you need by one that as that size of jack, also check if it needs stereo or mono to a input jack that is stereo to fit the input of the Laptop i.e microphone jack socket

The laptop has worked great sincce then, except that the two USB ports on the right side and the headphone and microphone jacks do not work. I have reinstalled the audio drivers, twice, but have not reinstalled the chipset drivers at all, as I don't want to screw around with those untiol I no more about what I should do.

Answer:Y410p Front headphone and microphone jacks not working after repair

Hi Talonek, welcome to the forums,
 
the problem you are experiencing is probably due to the cable connecting the ports on the right side, front of system, to the mainboard unfortunately not being connected or connected properly.  Please see pdf page 52 of the system's Hardware Maintenance Manual.
 
I've never taken an Y410p apart, but having looked at the manual the cable connection may well be accessible to check / fix by removing the hard drive.  Another alternative would be to call service and ask them to do this for you.

My laptop (y410p) was starting to run slow, it take very long to launch apps, even launching the naive music apps or weather apps come preloaded with window 8 take long to launch. unable to figure out the problem, I did a clean factory restore on it. after the factory restore, the proformance improve abit. but it wasn't at it full potential as when I first got it.What I notice is my Disk at task manager is at 100% most of the time.  I wonder is this normal? Disk is at 100% and the highest usage is 1MB/s, it stay at 100% most of the time, sometime it drop down to 0% then spike up to 90-100%. is it something to worry about?

Answer:Lenovo y410p, Is this normal?

First try to remove any third party virus scanner program and just use Windows Defender. If it is McAfee then there are two to remove. After the removal restart the unit and observed if there are improvements. Then open Resource Monitor and choose Disk. You should see which programs are running and accessing the Disk.

Question: Headphone Jack

I accidentally broke a headphone plug off in the jack of my Gateway NE56R31 laptop. I have tried several different methods of removing it. One method included superglue which I am pretty sure has now glued the piece in. I am looking for suggestions for removing the plug or disabling the jack so that I have sound on my computer. Would a pair of USB headphones work? I mostly only use headphones when using my laptop. Thank you.
 

Answer:Headphone Jack

With the plug superglued into the jack, now the only way to fix the issue is with a replacement system board for the laptop. I don't know that USB or Bluetooth headphones would provide sound.

Hey guys,
So I bought a XPS 15 9560 16gig ram, with 512 ssd, i7 FHD screen, it arrived 5 days ago and I loved it, its simply the best laptop ever. However, I am met with a strange issue, my headphone jack is useless, not as in the widespread problem with it but its physically useless, every headphone I tried to plug in, is literally not pluging in, like it will go in and just fall out...
So out of curiousity I took some pictures of the headphone jack and put flashlight next to it to see what is going on, and this is what I got:
Is this suppose to be like this? Am I doing something wrong? or am I right for assuming the worst is that dell didn't physically put a headphone jack assembly in my laptop? Please help.
Thanks, oh and if it is the latter, I'm going to return it and never touch dell ever again, its quite insane how poor the QA is.

Question: Headphone Jack.

Hey there, I've so I think there must be a problem with my headphone jack, for some reason when I connect my headphone to the jack, I can always only hear on one side of the headphone. I can only hear on both sides when I apply some force to the jack, pushing it to the left and I would have to hold it to that position to get it working properly. I forgot since when I had this problem, but it has been like this for quite some time. and when I plug in the same set of headphones to my phone, it works just fine. I've tried this with 3 different headphones and a pair earphones and the problem still persists, so I'm assuiming it is the jack port that is faulty. I've been okay with having this problem because I would always usually just plug in both headphone and audio jacks in the cpu and insert a pen in between both the jacks, having the headphone jack pushed to the left all the time and making it always work. But just recenly I bought an external kareoke microphone which I planned on using to beatbox with, and when I record and playback, I can only hear from the left side of my headphone. Kinda ticks me off because I've spent a lot of money on my headphones, microphone and microphone jack converter but I still can't get the best out of my products. Plus, I would always switch from speakers to headphones, depending on whether I'm listening to music or gaming. What should I do? :/ (Sorry if I've sent any irrelevant information or my English is bad)

I have a GW M6307 with Vista HP 32bit. The headphone jack has suddenly stopped working.
I have done a restore back to when it was working..uninstalled and reinstalled audio drivers without results. The IDT control panel indicates something else is plugged into the jack both for the mic and HP. I also reinstalled the MS audio drivers that came with the machine. I cannot find any default anywhere to change any setting regarding this. The laptop speakers work but the default to HP when plugged in does not. The speakers conitnue to play with no sound in the HP.There are no indications of a loose connection and the laptop sits on a desk most of the time. I realize this could be a hardware failure but it's hard to believe and I know the headphones work with other devices.
Does any know where a default setting exists or how to confirm a hardware failure??

Answer:Audio jack stuck in PC input jack...?

There is a contact switch inside that audio port that switches the built in speakers off when a jack is inserted.
This is a physical switch so the issue is hardware. I doubt there will be any software solution for it.

So your mission is to remove that broken jack. If you are uncomfortable taking a laptop apart you might consider taking it to a repair shop.

Answer:Audio jack stuck in PC input jack...?

You will need to get the broken piece out. Sometimes a strong magnet will dislodge it. Some RealTek's have a control panel that will allow you to reassign jacks, but I don't know if that will even do you any good.

If you have one it will be located in Start/Control Panel/Hardware and Sound.

Can you solder?.... That will be the only way to replace the jack I am afraid And I would suspect you will have to remove the entire base of the laptop to reach the audio ports, not just one screw.. it just gets worse....

Varies from laptop-to-laptop. Just make sure you remember where all your screws went originally (using an ice-cube tray, and labeling the screw trays are a good idea.. making a rough sketch of the bottom of the laptop and where all the screws go is sometimes not a bad idea either). You can try to find a service manual online for the laptop as well, and see if it gives diagrams / instructions on how to tear it all the way down.

I've downloaded the drivers from Lenovo's support page several times yet it doesn't solve the problem. I'd right click on the speaker icon in the taskbar to see if headphones were even listed as a playback device and it is not.

Hi there,If the earphone jack has a wiggle and is loose where sound becomes intermittent, it can only mean a bad solder. Since the jack is soldered directly to the motherboard and if you still have a warranty, then it would be wise to send the laptop in for a repair - doing such a repair yourself may indeed invalidate the warranty on the machine. Regarding the hdd and information stored on your laptop. You should make a backup of all information, remove the personal information from the HDD before sending in the laptop (if this is the course of action you decide to take). Lenovo will not accept a different configuration from that which was originally included in the machine, therefore, it is ill-advised to send a laptop in for repair with different components (aftermarket installations) - again, Lenovo reserves the right to refuse repair service based on this specific point.If I may offer a suggestion. I would strongly suggest you get yourself a comparable-size 2.5" HDD and an external USB enclosure solely for the purpose of making/storing backups instead of playing around with CD/DVD media (much of these are unreliable for long-term storage). External USB enclosures (which are relatively inexpensive these days) are very portable, thus you may even take those along with you in your travels without worry of added weight - you'll only be gratified for the convenience of extra storage at a very reasonable price. Vantec and Ultra make very good laptop HDD enclosures, both av... Read more

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.
 

Answer:Headphone jack not working...?

Before ripping the laptop apart, virus scan, uninstall sound drivers and/or sound manager programs, reboot, reinstall sound drivers and/or sound man., reboot.

I can get sound to play out of my monitor speaker, but not through my headphones. The computer says they're not plugged in when they clearly are. I know its not the headphones either because i tried my other ones and it still doesnt work. I uninstalled and reinstalled the realtek audio drivers too and still nothing. Is my jack just broken?

So the other day my nephew decided to stick a chopstick in the earphone jack on the family pc and break it off at the tip. Now the broken part is stuck in good and it's not coming out, plain and simple. We don't actually need to use the jack...so no big deal. The problem is that the PC now thinks that something is plugged into the jack so it has cut off the signal to the speakers. Is there a way I can simply disable the front headphone jack so I can restore the audio out signal to the speakers?
 

Answer:How do I disable headphone jack?

Odd that a wooden chopstick would do that, unless something has been bent and is now shorting. If you take off the case cover you should be able to just disconnect the wire from the jack to the MB.

The headphone jacks on the front of my case arent giving out any sound. What should I do?

Answer:No sound from headphone jack?

One are you sure you have the jacks set-up right. 2. do you have sound at all if not make sure you have your sound driver installed.

It says that the phones are not plugged in when they are. I have run the troubleshooter in the control panel with no success.
Any suggestions?

Answer:Headphone jack in, no sound

Hi first test the headphones in another computer and if working there try reinstalling the sound driver available from the fujitsu support pages for your model.

When I updated my computer was upgraded to windows 10, the headphone jack was working perfectly. All of a sudden, a few months ago, they wouldn't work. I tried everything that I could find. I tried reinstalling the IDT high definition audio CODEC. When I tried to update it, it came up with an error here: https://puu.sh/r6LQJ/678c26d003.png.I looked around my computer, and everything was plugged in correctly (I'm pretty sure). The headphone jack still dosen't work right now. It isn't the headphones; I plugged them in on my laptop, and they worked perfectly (also, it was brand new). I need help to fix them. Can someone give me a different method?

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

Hi all I have a HP Pavilion x360 convertible laptop. When my headphones are plugged in and there isn't any sound playing for like 1 minute, the headphone jack goes to sleep (no power to the headphones), which is really good to conserve battery. The problem is when I start playing sound. The headphones suddenly receives power and kicks in with a high volume bass, hurting my ears.  Can I disable this sleep mode for the headphone jack? I have looked through the advanced energy-settings and BIOS, but I can't find any option for it. Many thanks in advance.

I have an HP ze4145 (Laptop) and my headphone jack after 2 years has broken on me. Before it completely broke I would have to move the plug around inside the jack to try and get the right connection. Now that im completely missing a headphone jack I have two questions. First, is there any way i can disable the jack and force all of the audio to come out of my laptop speakers? and Second, Would i be able to buy a new jack or soundcard and how much would it cost on average? Thank you to anyone who can help.

Hi there, Mertimiks                 -
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Just to verify, do you get a pop-up notification whenever you plugged-in a headphone / earphone?
 
- Link to picture
 
I might also suggest checking with headphones to see if the sound operates normally with headphones.  If not, then it is likely the driver, or the audio chip (but more likely the drivers). Update the audio drivers.
 
For headphones issue, please go to Control Panel -> Hardware & sounds -> Sound -> In Playback tab Select Speaker / Headphone and click the drop-down Select Default.
 
Update us how it goes.

Anybody else noticed that when docked, the onboard headphone Jack stops working.  I realize that there is a headphone jack on the back of the dock, but that's a pain.  Especially when I have external speakers hooked up to that port and want to connect headphones.  On all of my previous generations, if I plugged in headphones in the onboard port, it would bypass (eliminate audio) on the dock port. Just another little annoyance, although not quite as bad as the rediculous monitor issues on this box (external monitors flashing and going blank) that there seems to be no real fix for. Lenovo, cnosider these things when you build new devices, at least do a good job of real world use/testing prior to bringing new devices to the market.  I still love this laptop but in many ways i've had more troubles than any previous system.

Hello,

Lately my headphone/computer has been acting weirdly. Before, a reboot worked but not anymore. For ex. i'm watching a movie on my laptop with my speakers. I can hear everything correctly. Then when I insert my headphone, i can't hear anything. Drivers are updated. I've read that IDT (the one that I have) don't like windows 7... Also, i cannot set my headphones as default device.

Please help me out, can't use my headphones!

thanks.

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...

Ok I have a cooler master case the centurian one and it has a front headphone jack. And I have an Audigy ZS 2 sound card. I have no Idea what to plug in to get this thing to work. Does anyone know of some helpful sites or anything that can help me out. Thanks

Answer:I cant get my headphone jack to work I need help.

well, on my mobo a jumper setting determines whether or not the front jack will work. make sure your mobo supports this and make sure that the wires are connected from the front of the case to the mobo itslef. there should be a place for it to plug in. its really up to your mobo no matter what.
