It could be a broken or cold solder on the motherboard OR the circuit on the motherboard is defective. Either way the motherboard has to be removed from the laptop to fix or replace it.

When plugging in a wireless headphone in the audio output the tv's speakers shut down.How can I stop this


The speaker cutout feature whenever the headphone jack is connected is a hard-wired feature of the headphone connector, and cannot normally be bypassed without further electronic circuitry and the associated surgery to install a custom modification in the TV. In order to keep the TV speakers on while using the sound elsewhere, you will have to take the audio output from the IR Audio port, if there is one.

Headphone jack not working


Hi,

I find that there is a problem with your headphone speaker.
Try with some other headphone, even if it is not working, then you need to take it to the service center.

Problem in internal speakers in dell inspiron 1440


Probably just a software setting...many different things in software could cause this.... OS, driver, something... but could be bad speakers.

Try external speakers in the headphone jack.. if they work fine, then probably bad internal speakers.

Software is the most likely culprit.

Internal speakers do not emit sound but I can hear w/ headphones


I have a 700m, so I'm real familiar with the system. I see one of 2 possibilities. The headphone jack has a switch that disables the on-board speakers, if that is stuck or broken, then the jack/switch must be replaced. (Big hassle)

The other is easier to troubleshoot, then connection from the speakers to the MB goes through the Right hinge cover. Take the hinge cover off, check for broken wires (I has one, ***** to splice too)

Sound is working but internal speaker is not working


Connecting headphones to the system will disabled the internal speakers until the headphone jack is disconnected, at which such time the internal speakers should function again.

If you disconnect the headphones and the internal speakers are not re-activated, then there may be damaged to the microswitch in the jack. (Try rebooting after the headphones are disconnected too)
