Welcome to Fixya!
You should be able to remove the jack, and the speakers will be fine. OR if it is a board mounted jack, you can use an x-acto knife to cut the circuit traces going to it. - either way this will work.

    If you look under the board, you will see the traces going to the soldered pins on the jack. just cut each one of thoes traces - or better yet, replace the jack!

I have an Integra DTR 20.3. Recently, I have been getting no sound from the speakers after removing the headphones from the headphone jack. Any ideas?


Usually the headphone jack has a contact that's "made" by the 'ring' section of the jack when you push in the plug, which bypasses the speaker circuit (that's what automatically silences the speakers when you plug in the headphones when there are no switches to turn the speakers on/off manually)... if the 'ring' strip got bent somehow so it's pressing against that contact all the time, it won't let the speakers' circuit come out of bypass. Look inside the jack with a flashlight... the sideways Vs that touch the 'ring' sections of the stereo headphone plug should be about in the middle of the opening... if they're pushed over too far it may require disassembly to bend them back to the proper position.

Sound comes through only one speaker at a time.


Is the sound on both channels on a pair of headphones? If it is suspect a faulty headphone socket, especially if the speakers are cut out when the headphone jack is inserted - normally.

No sound in headphones


Could be that your audio jack has material stuck in it or possibly the jack is bad.

No sound from creative t3030 2.1 speakers


the circuit board and amplifacation supply inside the sub are blow or shorted out.thus preventing any sound. the head phone jack works only because it is a bypass feature supported by the actual computer not the surround sound unit

My left speaker on my gateway ML3706 laptop just stoped working


If you get sound from both sides of the headphones when you plug it into the same jack the speakers normally plug into all you need to do is replace the speakers. If you mean you plug the headphones into the cd drive that's nothing special. You could have a bad sound card, bad connection in the jack, or bad speakers.

Sounds like the cords that are going into the PC/system have static. Remove the cords from the speakers and simply put your finger around the jacks to remove static. Push the cords and the jacks back in and switch on the speakers. Then twist the volume control, turning it up loud and then low, then loud and low again. That should cure the problem as it removes static that gets built up over time. Either that or your speakers could well be damaged.

GE TV set has picture but no sound model GE09GP106


If the set has a headphone jack, have you tried plugging in a set of headphones?

If the sound works on the headphones, you may have a bad internal speaker.

If you don't get any sound in the headphones, the audio amplifier may have failed as it drives both the headphone jack & speaker.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
