Headphone jack broke off inside

If I am unsuccessful at removing the broken jack from inside the port.
Can I disable the port and route the sound output on my pc elsewhere?

I have T2892 Emachine. On the back I have pink sound in port and two other green ports next to it which have a different symbol than a headphone symbol I see on the front of the computer.

I use the port to run sound out into my stereo system. 1/8in adapter end (snapped off) connects two stereo speaker jacks at the other end of the adapter.

Any suggestions?

    the pin cannot be removed from the jack. Can I detach the jack from the inside of the PC by pulling it off with pliers, or might that damage the computer?

Yes, you could easily open the computer and physically remove the wires from the mother board for the front audio jack. These are pin headers. Most all the time they are labeled.

The rear audio should already be working from the green jack. If not, then perhaps you have the RealTek Audio chipset and software. The realtek audio software generally has a orange speaker icon in the system tray. You can double click to open it, go to the Audio I/O tab and then click the little wrench icon. It will open the connector setting. On the connector settings screen is a checkbox. Disable front panel jack detection. Uncheck that, also a check box for Mute rear panel output when fron headphone plugged in, UNCHECK this. That should do it.

If you want to try further to remove the broken jack make sure the machine is off, use a very tiny needle nose pliers (electronic type) you should be able to pull it out.

What kind of computer do you have? You could also possibly remove the jack assembly from the inside, so you can get a better view for the extraction of the plug.

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.

No sound


Do you have an app for sound control (probably installed with the driver) as it's possible it's still routing the sound through one of the jacks instead of the laptop speakers.

I have a Dell D600. when I plug in the headphones I also get sounds from the laptop speaker. Can u tell me how to fix this? Thanks


Try with different Audio jacks or headsets, if the same problem persists, you'll need a technician to get it inspected and checked. Assuming that the problem is new and it was working fine, there must be short circuit or broken tracks inside the sound/audio port. For workaround, you can check the sound settings and enable or disable the "multistreaming....".
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Light indicator is on


Try changing the battery, if it doesn't help, some possibilities are:

- dirty contacts or a broken wire on the footswitch

- a broken wire from the distortion output to the output plug

- a broken wire elsewhere in the unit (e.g. potentiometers or rotary controllers)

- a bad input / output level or other potentiometer or rotary controller

- a burnt out component (a bit unlikely, but possible, and it could be anything)

- a bad connector contact inside the unit

- a bad pin solder contact on ANY of the components inside the unit (wires, connectors, switches, jack plugs, resistors,variable resistors, trimmers, diodes, capacitors, transistors, ICs, etc.)

Broken wires / badly soldered pins need to be resoldered, but if there is damage to any of the components, they wil probably need to be replaced.

I hope you can find out what it is.

Broken Prong inside connector for mouse


If the ps2 port on the main board is broken you will need to replace the board. If this is the case and your computer has usb ports on it just go out and buy a usb mouse.

 

If the part that is broken is from the mouse by using tweezers try to gently remove the broken part from the board. if unsuccessful use the usb port with a usb mouse.

No sound output from rear speaker jack


Plugging headphones into the computer will disable sound output from the sound card by design.
