SPDIF jack not working well

I tried to use external speakers and headphones to listen to music aloud but the jack doesnt seem to work well. The output sound using the SPDIF jack is not as good as it should be. It's like you're listening a sound from a traditional transistor radio. I mean the sound doesnt have any bass at all, but when I listen to the music using the built in speaker of the laptop, the sound works great. I hope somebody can help me with this.

Thanks

The jack is not connected well, may be it is developing a short circuit inside

My dell latitude d510 internal spk is ready but output headfone jek not working


these are fairly passive in that if a headphone or earpiece is plugged in, they switch the output from the internal speaker to the external speaker. So, it's usually one of a few problems.
  • The jack is mucked up, and needs replaced.
  • The headphone plug wires have a broken connection
  • The headphone needs power to amplify, and that's not working.
If trying another headphone or earpiece you know is working doesn't work, it's the jack itself. They can only handle so many uses before they either fail closed, or open or completely. Depending on which one, either:
  • neither speakers nor headphones work.
  • only speakers work
  • only headphones work
Replacement necessitates opening the case and replacing the jack. For that, there's no help.

Sound on my dell latitude D610 is skipping making the sound choppy and warbled. But, music thru external speaker sounds fine. What up?


May be your headphone is not good, so let's check your headphone. If headphone is good, lets' install newest audio driver for your laptop to see whether the problem is fixed.

Sir my delln5010 laptop internal speakers are not functioning , yesterday when i was listening to music it suddenly stops and after it was not functioning


Hi sir,
How can you say that it is the internal speaker that is defective? Have you tried another sound output, like headset or external speakers? If you have, and it works then the problem is definitely the speakers. You will need to have it serviced/replaced. If even the external speakers do not dork, then the problem is the sound card which is embedded on the motherboard. That means you will need to have the motherboard replaced.
But before anything else, try to check the sound playback if it is properly set to default. Sometimes we may have installed an application or clicked on something that changes the default output of our speakers. Check it first and hopefully it fixes it. Make sure that you have the right default sound output.

Whenever I start the computer, I dont hear any sound from window and if I try to play music from my media player, no sound at all. I can only listen to music or sound via headphone only. I have downloaded...


most system has seperate audio ports for the speaker and the headphone but they are interchangeable. try plugging the speaker on the audio your using for the headphone. if your already using the same audio jack then try using another speaker, but since you mentioned that the headphone works then its possible you might need to replace your speaker

Headphone jack stopped working for acer aspire 5520


If running Vista or Win7 then could be that SPDIF output is set as output device instead of the headphones as output. Try mixer controls or control panel applet.

Built in speakers not working


Are you using external speakers? or internal?

EXTERNAL SPEAKERS: If your are plugging speakers into your headphone jack and they dont play, but you plug headphones into the same port and they work fine.. then it is the external speakers.

INTERNAL SPEAKERS: But if you are using the speakers in the laptop, then your speakers are probably bad. Try some software settings, but probly just bad speakers. Could also be that the speaker cord inside the laptop came unplugged from the motherboard. In which case you would have to take the laptop apart and plug it back into the motherboard.

Good Luck.

My laptops speakers stopped working


Have you tried a pair of headphones to see if they work?
Is the sound ouput muted? (a lot of laptops have a physical button to
do this...

check to see if the laptop is muted. Also, check the
volume control to see if everything is up where it should be, including
Speaker Out.

If I've got this all straight, the only thing that it can be is an
issue with the plug on the speakers and the jack on the laptop.

Obviously the computer is putting out sound to the headphone jack as
evidenced by your ability to listen through headphones. The speakers
work on another computer. So, it has to be something specific about
the Speakers on this laptop. Plug/Jack problem is the only thing that
comes to mind.

To connect Asus Notebook to Yamaha RV-502 Av Reciever to play music


Hi, Most notebooks have a 1/8 female plugin from your audio card. (headphone Jack)
Now, you need a cord with a 1/8 male plugin on one end and two RCA Jacks on the other.
All you need to do is connect the cord to (AMP) RCA in and the 1/8 Jack to you notebook.

This will work fine. Good luck

Turning off the speakers


When you plug into the headphone jack, it should automatically override the speakers. This will be either a driver issue or a device faliure (headphone jack) Start by updating the sound drivers from Dell's support site. Then update your media player. If these don't work then it's the jack.
