Oh CRUD, I did use speaker out...
I too thought no audio in phones was strange - b/c I could hear the plug contact the jack...so I did confirm the volume was up, and speakers/vol levels selected in the audio section were appropriate...(as far as I know).
Another odd thing I noticed upon reboot, is that when the computer starts up, the buzz starts out really slow, and speeds up as the computer 'loads/starts up'...as if something is 'winding/warming up', connected to the electric buzz.
I also find it odd that if I press on the silver screen above the keyboard, it momentarily interrupts the sound (the only thing that does).
I have uninstalled the ISATAP & restarted - no change.
Any more advice?
What would be the status/resolution if it's indeed an impedence issue? Or do I want to know...

Re: still trying - dv6000 speaker problem
Greetings, I don't know if you have trid this go to the manufacturers website and their support, then download the driver to your desktop then go to device manager and uninstall the audio device. do not reboot the computer at this point install the driver then reboot the computer when it comes to the section that asks if you want to look automatically say no and check the section that states selec driver from aspecified location then direct the prompt to your desk top driver. You will have to reboot again after it installs.
Let me know if that works if not write back and we will work on it,

The jack when inserted is supposed to cut the main speakers off---the only suggestions I have would be:
Contact the MFR. customer service to see what options they can offer
Consider if the set has connections for external speakers to look for one you can put close to her---some of those units also have a jack for headphones that will not turn main speakers off--just the one in the external unit.
Check that the speakers are powered on (assuming they need power) and that the volume control is set at a mid-level.Next check that you have the speaker 3.5mm jack plug inserted into the correct speaker socket on the audio card - there are normally three sockets, one each for a microphone, speaker or headphone output and for line output - these are often colour coded on newer systems and if so, match the colour of the speaker jack plug to the speaker socket.If the speakers are connected by USB instead of an audio jack plug, then check to see if the USB device has been recognised automatically - if not, then you may need to find any software that came with the speakers and install this before the system will recognise them.Finally, open the system audio controls and check what device is selected for audio output - ensure that this is the same as the speaker device you are wanting to use.One further test, if you have the speakers powered on and they have a standard audio jack, you should hear some feedback sound if you touch the contacts at the end of the jack plug with your fingers.
If you can hear the sound from the headphone(earphone jack), the fault is between the headphone itself or the speakers. Check the continuity of the speakers(voice coil) using the multimeter to determine if it is faulty or not.
If you've confirmed that the speakers are not the issue here, you may spray an electrical contact cleaner to the earphone jack of your unit while pulling and inserting the headset plug to clean the contact from dirt build-up inside. You may also replace the earphone jack with new one to back the unit in normal operation.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.
You must confirm that they are plugged into the correct output and also into a power source. If they are powered speakers it can either be the audio out or the headphone jack, if they are not powered then they have to be plugged into the headphone jack. Next confirm the audio driver is correctly installed. Finally confirm that the system sound and the sound for whichever program you are using is not muted.
First make sure that the sound is not in "mute"
Plug your headset to theearphone
jack(if installed)of the TV.
If you canhearthe sound there, the fault may due to
speakersor the earphone jackitself. Faulty internal speaker
may replaced withnew setsto back your sound to normal again. If
the earphone jack was faulty, you maysprayit first with electricalcontact cleanerwhileinserting and pullingthe headset plug into it for one
minute tocleanthe contact. If nothing happens, this
jack need to replaced with new one.
If you can't hear the sound after inserting your headset, this is
an indication that theaudio
circuitrywas gone bad. The
most common caused of this trouble was the faultysound IC(mounted in heatsink).
This is the oneconvertsthe audio signal to sound and feed to
your speaker's. I would advice you to look for a qualified technician to check
Troubleshooting Sound Issues
Verify that the audio cable is connected to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card and plugged into the AUDIO IN or LINE IN of the Monitor.
Make sure there are no cables connected to the Headphone Jack (located next to the AUDIO IN port) on the monitor. If there is, please disconnect that cable and try the speakers again. Connecting a cable to the Headphone Jack disables the speakers.
If there is no cable connected into the Headphone Jack, test a pair of headphones into that jack to see if you can hear sound out of the headphones. If you are able to hear sound out of the headphones, disconnect the headphones and try the speakers again.
Verify that the Mute on the monitor is not on or the Volume is not turned down.
Verify that the Mute on the computer is not on or the Volume is not turned down.<
If there is still no audio from the monitor's speakers, connect the Audio cable to another audio source like a portable CD player or tape player headphone output. If audio can be heard through the monitor's speakers, then there may be an issue with the computers sound card.
Connect another set of computer speakers (if available) or headphones to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card. If NO audio can be heard then there is an issue with the sound card. Verify with the computer's manufacturer for additional assistance.
Troubleshooting No Sound from a LCD TV
No Sound when using RGB (when connected to a PC)
Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the computer.
Note: On the N1700W use the GREEN mini-jack; on this model Audio is SHARED between DVI and RGB, there is only 1 audio channel for data connections. The N1700w is designed to take a 1.0v RMS audio signal for optimal sound quality.
Confirm that both the LCD TV Mute and Windows Mute are off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).
Press the Volume Up Button on the monitor or remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.
Confirm that PC volume is sufficient by using Windows/Macintosh Volume adjustment settings.
Try plugging another audio source such as a CD or Cassette Player directly into the Audio port on the LCD TV to confirm the speakers work, or try plugging headphones or external speakers into the sound card on the Computer. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your Computer for further support.
No Sound when using S-Video/Composite/ Component Video
Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.
Confirm Mute is off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).
Press the Volume Up Button on the LCD TV or Remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.
Try plugging headphones or external speakers into the audio port on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.
Note: Some ViewSonic monitors do not include speakers.
Most headphone jacks operate as you describe. There is a switch built into the jack that diverts the audio from the speakers to the headphones for "private listening". If it didn't work this way, there would be no way that you could enjoy an audio track or other program with others having to hearing it, too.
You could get around this problem by using an external speaker set and a "splitter cable".
A splitter cable is simply a three ended cable like the one pictured above. The first end has a male plug that matches the jack on your computer - likely a stereo mini plug. The other two ends are usually the same; but the female version. You would plug the splitter into the SPEAKER jack and the laptop speakers would be silenced. Next, you would plug the the external speakers into one of the splitter jacks and then your headset would plug into the remaining splitter jack. You would connect the microphone plug into the MIC jack on the laptop.
You'll have to tinker with the sound levels as there will be feedback issues - depending on how close and loud the speakers are to the headset microphone.
Nothing wrong with your USB ports. MagicJack has changed your audio and driver settings so it can use the sound system for phone calls. The changes exist whether the Jack device in plugged in or not. You can confirm the problem by uninstalling MagicJack and reinstalling your sound drivers. Should fix the problem. You'll probably need to contact the maker of the MagicJack device for a workaround. Might be something specific to your laptop/operating system.
If the sound works on you headphones the either your built-in speaker(s) is/are bad or more likely the headphone jack itself is broken and not making contact in the speaker position which is fairly common.
1-make sure that digital input source is selected. 2-make sure all audio connecting plugs are pushed in all the way. 3-make sure that polarity of speakers is correct.and the bare wire of cables not in contact with any metal part. 4-make sure that speakers cables not short with each other. 5-check volume and confirm that is not set to low level. 6-check that system is not in mute position. 7-head phone jack is not inserted. 8-repeat your speakers set up and confirm all speakers are on and in good sound level.
