Look at the headphone jack, if it has 3 band, it is a stereo jack. the computer is mono.
you need a 2 band jack.
if you look at the jack on the computer, you will see blue(left) and green (right). you canna try to use the green jack.
go to any electroic shop and get a stereo to mono converter.

Acer iconia tablet problem


Few things.
If you are talking about the built in speakers, make sure your volume is turned up. And make sure its turned up when the headphones are not plugged in. My android tablet has individual sound profiles so while I might have the sound muted when the headphones are not plugged in, if I plug them in, the volume jumps to my set level because that's where I turned the volume up to last time the headphones were plugged in. I've also had two tablets that the speakers went out completely on that to is a possibility but if you are talking about the built in speakers, check the volume levels first. You can get to them in the settings menu. Its worth noting that plugging anything into the headphone jack will "turn off" the internal speakers altogether.

If you are talking about external, plug into the jack speakers, on a tablet, you're going to need a set of powered speakers as that jack is not going to produce enough power to drive an un-amplified speaker. Make sure you are using a pair of speaks that plug into the wall such as PC speakers.

Second, if you are using powered speakers and still not getting any where, look at the jack end of your head phones and compare it to the jack end of your speakers. I know iPhones and other Apple devices have an extra connect which is why the Apple head phones all have an extra ring. My older headphones are worthless in my iPhone because they lack said extra connection. It's possible your tablet also requires the newer connection and the headphones have that while your speakers don't.

Broad answers, but I couldn't tell exactly what we were looking at based on the questions. Hope it helps, and good luck!

Suddenly there is no sound in the speaker but headphone works fine..laptop is Lenovo B575


If the head phone jack works its more likely to be the problem, if you use the headphone jack a lot the connections inside it can get worn or bent out of shape--engaging the headphone jack should shut the speakers in the unit off.

Other possible reason is a bad speaker or connections.

Headphones for a laptop not working


The Laptop has 3 Ports on the side- Pink,Green,Black
Pink Port is LineIn for an external device player jack


Green Port is LineIn for the Microphone jack
Black Port is LineOut for Headset or External Speakers jack


Plug the Green jack on Headphone - into the Black Port on the laptop.
b) Go to Control Panel and open - RealTek HD Audio manager
On the top of Page are 3 Icons -


One Icon is labelled Speakers One is for Digital optics, one is for Mic,
The Speakers Icon is misleading as it is also for Headphones (LineOut)


Select Speaker Icon and make it Default. Also tick Full Range - Front LR
Ignore the 4 vertical Analog Icons on the right side.


You should now have Headphone sound if your volume is not Muted.


click start control panel on the left select hardware and sound then select manage audio devices then recording you should see a microphone right click select enable windows 7


click start control panel on the left select hardware and sound then select manage audio devices then recording you should see a microphone right click select configure speech recognition then

you will see earphones with a speaker among a list set up a microphone headset with microphone then next and next again you should see your earphones with microphone being configured


click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it or select audio from the microphone drop down list

make sure you have the right one selected and in the volume box make sure the microphone box has a tick in it or
select the voice tab

make sure that you have the right media selected also
select volume make sure the box for microphone has a tick in it

or you might have to depending on your operating system
Click start Control Pannel
click on Hardware and Sound


click on Sound
then you devices should come up ; speakers, Digital Audio, and headphones


plug your headphones in
then select headphones


at the bottom it will say set as default
select that!!


then when you disconnect your headphones it automatically switches to the speakers and when you plug them back in it automatically will switch to headphones

hope this helps

I have installed vista home edition on my pc and my headphones seemed not to be working on either the front nor on the backside green jack,the microphone are working fi9 and the external speakers are also...


Go to control panel, click on sound and check if the head phone jack is enabled and also if the drop down list under head phone jack properties states 'use this device'
I had a similar problem with my build in speakers on my laptop also in Vista and the problem was simply that the speakers were not enabled.
Hope that solves the problem for you.

I can hear sound in head phone where as i am unable to hear sound from speakers


You must set the sound output on your computer either through the motherboard sound controller or through the windows control panel.In each of these sections will be a speaker set-up control allowing you set up the type of sound you want to come out of your computer. Headphones only, speakers only, Headphones and speakers. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Front headphone and microphone jack don't work.


Based on what you've submitted, I'm listing a number of solutions which may or may not help. Try the following:

1.) Double-check the color coding on the jack to the port and ensure they match.

2.) Go to Start Menu>>Control Panel>>Sounds and Audio Devices. If it says you have "No Audio Device", then we have a problem.

If it says you have an audio device, tinker with the tabs and settings until your sound output is good.

Please let me know if this helps. If you need further troubleshooting, feel free to ask me directly! Take care.

Your headphone jack is probably damaged and needs replacement. Here is one I found on the net: Repair your broken "Hands Free" socket, soldering required. This item is also available pre-mounted to the board, ready to plug in. Free shipping.
