I was using my headphones, plugged into the headphone jack. Last night, I noticed a red beam of light coming from inside my headphone jack that was never there before, I thought "wow that's cool, this thing shows me something new and cool everyday"...wrong. This morning I was trying to listen to music but nothing comes out of my speakers and the red light is still apparent..I thought S/PDIF is turned on and I turned it off then the red beam has gone.Now I don't have sound on my built-in speakers! I need your help! My laptop is ASUS F3M with AMD Turion X64,Win XP Media Center Edition with Realtek HD audio controller. Thank You very much!!!!

I have a Latitude D600 laptop. When I plug in my headphones, the sound still plays through the built in speakers. When I twist the plug in the jack I can sometimes get sound in the headphones but it still...

I dont think the JACK is the problem, I suspect a bad headphone wire (intermittent) or an incorrect driver, headphone jacks in laptops are software controlled, (no mechanical switch inside) if you hear sound in both the headphones and the speakes it is a driver issue, try updating the driver, if the headphone wire is erratic it can fool the software that controlls the input and do crazy things also...

Good luck!

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.

No sound from speakers

The earplug socket in the computer is faulty, needs replacing.

What is going on is that there is a contact that the plug pushes open.
That contact for some reason is not closing when the plug is pulled out.

Acer Aspire 1406 no sound issue

So sometimes laptops play up when the headphone socket gets a bit worn. If you wiggle a headphone jack in the socket (put it in at different angles, and rub around) sometimes the sound will come back.

There are two prongs that "detect" the headphones, and cut the speakers... and if they don't "un-contact" when the headphones are removed, the speakers stay off.

You'd need someone to solder a new headphone socket on the mainboard to properly fix it, but if you wiggle and get the speakers back, they should stay back until you use the headphone socket again.

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)

Headphone jack broken speakers wont work

Yes, since the Headphone pin is stuck in the Jack, you are not getting audio from Speakers.

You should have noticed that connecting the headphones to the Jack will block the audio coming from the Speakers and the same is the current situation.

You can either try removing the blocked part using a Tweaser or get it repaired.
