Question about Compaq Evo N600C PC Notebook

1 Answer

No speaker sound

My sound wont come out of my speakers unless i put a 3.5 mm headphone set halfway or 3/4 of the way in the jack it will go to the speakers but only one side. with headphones and speakers hooked up to the jack it also only plays on one side, i wonder if there is a way to fix this without having to buy another jack to replace the one i have in the computer.

Unfortunately, these small jacks are not very durable.
They can be constructed to turn off internal speakers when a plug is inserted into the jack or not. There are normally small bumps on contacts in the jack that are pressed upon when inserting the plug and if their spring qualities are less than good, they stay somewhat bent after the plug is removed leaving one or more channels dead.
The cost of a replacement jack is miniscule (any electronic supply that caters to hobbiests will have them) but the replacement may require extreme care. The jack could be a board-mount type with angled leads that are inserted through the board or could be attached by thin wires. With care, the board mount type is the neatest to replace but one should have some soldering skills and a good iron to avoid damaging the circuit board. The wired type makes a messy repair and demands even more skill to keep stray wires from shorting each other and one always risks breaking the thin conductors while handling them.

It is a mecanical problem, not in settings. The laptop's headphone jacks have builted-in switches that disconnect internal speackers when the headphone jack is plugged in. You need to replase headphone jack with a new one or manually desactivate the swith - must to get ino your laptop and have skills in work with soldiering iron

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)

The speakers on my laptop do not have any sound. I can hear sound only when I plug in headphones. Is there a way to switch speakers? I have a Compag Presario v2000


You could have damaged the sensor in the 3.5 mm headphone jack so your computer does not realize that there are no headphones plugged in. If thats is the case you will have to have the sound card replaced. Another problem could be that the driver is messed up if you recently updated drivers roll back the sound cards driver or update it. Finally you can simply hook up old non usb speakers that use the headphone jack.

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.

Dell 610 lptop - haedphone not working,


First try uninstalling the sound drivers from the device manager, then reboot. It will find and reinstall them, then check Dell's support site for updated sound drivers. If you find updated drivers you will need to use the update button for the device in the device manager. If this doesn't work, then it may be a faulty headphone jack. The jack should override the speakers when the headphones are plugged into it. If you can still hear the speakers with the headphones plugged in then the jack is faulty and needs replaced. If the jack does override the speakers or if you get some static then it could be that the jack has come loose or has a loose or broken wire. The only other thing is try a different set of headphones, sometimes laptops get picky and one set will work and yet another set may not.
