Question about Compaq Evo N600C PC Notebook
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.
