Static shock possibly fry my soundcard?

OK so at my house my parents make me use headphones. Whenever I get off I have to switch it to speakers so my rents can listen to their old music. One day during the switch i got a painful static shock while pulling out the headphones. Now I cant get sound from either the speakers or the monitor. The only sound I have noticed is a continuous beep on the very edge of hearing... any ideas?

Static shock can fry your sound card from electro static discharge and it can also fry other PC components try another set of headphones in the pack of the PC. Or another pair of speakers rather than using your monitor and see what happens.

Receiver static


It could be just a lead, check your lead heads and inserts are clean.
Check along your leads and wires for any obvious kinks / tight bends / cuts / nicks / something sitting down on it or any damage to the wires.

It could be there is another electrical device nearby interfering at a electromagnetic level.

It could be just the dials / knobs need taking off and cleaning in behind. the pickups, you may not need to remove them just spray with electronic cleaner b3203b06-4ced-4fda-befd-44f385f97b7e.jpg this stuff is great for lots of different electrical cleaning problems.
Good luck

Headphones are working and mic is not working


The mics are of two types: electrostatic(cheap and modern) and old-stiled "dynamic". Old souncards were automatically switching to the mics type. Modern soundcards have to be switched manually.
In "sound properties" you first must check in that mic is turned on, mic volume in max and in all menues avd buttons find something like "mic amplifier boost"and turn it on. It's only non-standart mic tuning option in standart systems. All other problems in defects. Soundcards can be verifyed by so:
(with maximal speaker and mic volume) many times plug in and plug out any reacheable mics and headphones to the mic connection nest (hole), and listen(or recording) resulting scratches. If scratches or other related sounds are abscend(only noise), soundcard is bad. The mic problem may be in "jack left-right interconnection". This useful thing may hang some improper cards. Also that cards often cannot work with dynamic type. And they very sensitive to a manufacturer, and model of mic.
Problem may be also in configuring multimode speaker nests in 5_1(7.1) cards like REALTEC - the mic nest may be switched to the speaker output mode. Open Realtec's control center(in control panel or quicklaunch icon) and check in mic nest to "mic mode" or switch mode from 5.1 to stereo speakers.

Half volume in one ear on my fmj headphones, this only happens in he left ear. Its whenever i pull them out of my ear and i put them back in,i tap them and they go back.


the same thing happend to me... this may soud wierd but have they ever shocked you? cuz if they did that means you blew the speaker... these are GREAT headphones but they are poorly built. the speaker is in the wierd looking bump in the headphone and because its in a sealed enclosure and because its 16 ohms you can blow the speaker easily. just return them. skullcandy is really good with returns.

Only static comes out of speakers on my wk-3500


IT IS POSSIBLE THE SPEAKER SHORTED OUT BUT I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE EAR PHONE AND SPEAKER BEING BLOWING OUT TOGETHER, BECAUSE WHEN YOU PLUG IN THE EAR PHONE THE DEVICE SWITCHS THE SPEAKER OFF AND THE EAR PHONE WORK, YOU CANNOT HAVE BOTH WORKING AT THE SAME TIME UNLESS YOU HAS SOMEONE GO IN THE SYSTEM AND MAKE THAT ADJUSTMENT FOR YOU, THERE HAS TO BE A SHORTED WIRE SOMEWHERE, THE SPEAKER THEM SELF MAY HAVE A FUSE LINK SOME WHERE ELSE IN THE SYSTEM.

I WOULD TRY AND FIND THE SCHEMATICS FOR THE KB, SPEAKERS, MAYBE FRIED ON OF THE IC CHIPS ON THE BOARD. IF YOU FILL CONFORTABLE TAKING THING APART THAN TAKE IT APART AND SMELL AROUND THE CIRCUITS AND YOU WILL FIND WHERE THE SERGE HAPPENED, THAT SMELL LIKE MELTING PLASTIC.

STATIC IN RIGHT SPEAKER


Generally if it is only one side, the actual speaker has failed. Try connecting headphones, if they are fine than the soundcard (chip) is fine.

This would indicate that the speaker has failed (a lose connection inside can do this as well but that is much more rare).

Laptop noise interference


Hi,
This appears to be a problem with the soundcard or device. The mic/headphone/speakers are all usually associated with the sound card. you may have had a virus attack or problems with the items drivers. Check the device has no problems:- My Computer/Control Panel/System/Device Manager ( Yellow Exclamation ) denotes Problem. Alternatively, is to disable the Mic Input Via the sound cards control Panel.

Thankyou for using Fixya.
