Sound is working but internal speaker is not working

After plugging headphones into the headphone jack yesterday, the internal speaker no longer seems to work. sound still comes out through the headphone jack [headphones or speakers] but there is nothing coming out of the speaker. rebooting didn't help, settings seem correct. any thoughts on getting the internal speaker to work? Dell D410 laptop model.

thanks!

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)

My dell latitude d510 internal spk is ready but output headfone jek not working


these are fairly passive in that if a headphone or earpiece is plugged in, they switch the output from the internal speaker to the external speaker. So, it's usually one of a few problems.
  • The jack is mucked up, and needs replaced.
  • The headphone plug wires have a broken connection
  • The headphone needs power to amplify, and that's not working.
If trying another headphone or earpiece you know is working doesn't work, it's the jack itself. They can only handle so many uses before they either fail closed, or open or completely. Depending on which one, either:
  • neither speakers nor headphones work.
  • only speakers work
  • only headphones work
Replacement necessitates opening the case and replacing the jack. For that, there's no help.

Laptop headphone port not working


First of all check all driver/software settings, secondly ensure you have the latest driver for your sound device installed. Then proceed with the following:

Have you tried another set of headphones, did they work? Do you get sound from the internal speakers if nothing is plugged into the headphone jack? Do you still get sound from the internal speakers when you plug in your headphones?
If you answered yes to most of, if not all of those questions you are likely to need your jack socket replacing.

If you haven't tried another set of headphones, or other 3.5mm jack audio device, do it and let me know the results.

If the answer is no to any of the other questions please let me know which ones and I will try to offer more advise.

Is the speaker plug it the right connector and inserted all the way? Are you using the headphones jack? Do headphones work in the jack? Is the sounds section in Control Panel function properly ? TroubleShooting? What? Drivers? Power on speakers? Check connections/wiring?

Headphone jack not working


Hi,

I find that there is a problem with your headphone speaker.
Try with some other headphone, even if it is not working, then you need to take it to the service center.

Seems that you forgot to reconnect the internal speakers to their dedicated connection on the motherboard. In order to fix this, you will need to disassemble the laptop again & reconnect these wires.

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

Dell D810 speakers do not work, but headphone jack does work


It seems as though you might have a bad plug, There is a set of tabs that tell the laptop whether to use the speakers or the headphones. This switch may of locked into the headphones position. This is probably a case of where you would need to replace or repair the headphones port. check to make sure there is nothing in the port to block it. You can also try applying some light oil on the end of a headphones jack and placing it in and out several times to break free a possible stuck part. It also may be a case that the solder mark on the board has disconnected itself from the headphones jack and needs reseating. This would be a difficult fix but not at all impossible.

Sound only works with headset. No longer comes


If the sound is working through another device then it seems that the internal speakers are bad. Because if the sound card was bad you wouldn't have any sound whatsoever, same goes for drivers. Probably just some bad speakers. If you have some other external speakers try plugging them into the headphone port and see if that helps.
