Getting sound from speakers when heaphones are plugged in.

No matter what headphones I use, I still get sound from the unit speakers at the same time and I am unable to turn it off. Turning the volume down controls both the speaker volume as well as the headphone volume. Is there a setting that needs to be changed or something? Please Help!

Re: Getting sound from speakers when heaphones are...

Hi,I know that the earphone jack usually has the switch built in, and often it takes a certain "End Shape" on the Headphone Plug to actually "Activate" it... I am wondering if this is not actually your problem? and maybe ya just gotta get the "Right One"? Sometimes I have seen the "Switch" in the Jack fail and cease to "Cut out" the speakers... which generally means replacement.

Volume is not working

get a splitter that allows you to plug 2 sets of headphones in the portable dvd player.

The sound is the only place were this machine falls short. The sound is okay at best with the built in speakers, but any background noise makes it nearly impossible to hear anything from them even with the volume all the way up. Not surprising since due to the size of the player the speakers are only a little bigger then headphone speakers, but with headphones or portable plug-in speakers the sound is superb. Besides the sound the only 2 complaints are that you can not control the volume with the remote and that the power switch is too easily turned on by accident (do not travel with the battery attached or you will find you have no charge when it comes time to watch a movie). The battery lasts 3.5 to 4 hours, long enough for 2 short movies or 1 long one.

also checkout The volume button is on the right side of the uint.
, headphones are a must, or get a device to play the audio through your car stereo ($15-$25). The player has the option to either input or output the A/V so you could play video games on the run or you could hook up a VCR and watch creative

Sound works thru the wireless headphones, but not thru speakers?

go over all speaker connections and ensure they are good and also plugged in to the head unit and that the wires didn't fall out during install.

Horrible Static on both headphones and van speakers when playing


The most probable cause it broken solder connections on the headphone/ext speaker jacks.
If you know someone who can solder fine detail parts...have them try.

Check the headphone ports to make sure the port is functioning.

Insert and remove a headphone plug into the headphone jacks to mkake sure the headphone jack isn't stuck and cutting off the audio tot he speakers.

If you have no audio from the speakers or from the headphones, open the setup menu and navigate to SOUND or AUDIO and make sure you are set to PCM audio and not RAW.

If none of these solutions help, you have a problem with the player that is electrical and not easily repaired.

No sound

If it has always done this, then there might be a problem with the speaker board or the hedphone hack (the headphone ports are designed to disconnect the speakers when a plug is inserted).

If this is a recent development, try shooting some canned air into the headphone jacks and see if it doesn't free up the contacts.

There is no sound

Have you recently used headphones in this device? I have a portable DVD player that had a similar problem. It thought that headphones were plugged in and that turned the sound in the external speakers off. If i plugged in headphones the sound worked in them. So I jiggled the headphone plug in while in the jack and removed it and the sound came back on.

Sound wont work right /not much at all

Headphone connector is usually designed to pass audio to speakers when the headphones are disconnected. A corroded or bent connector will lose audio. Does the headphone audio level seem ok? Try inserting and removing the headphone jack several times to clean the connector.

Unit wont stay powered up

Check for overheating. Place the unit in a large plastic bag and place it in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour. Don't allow condensation to appear on the unit before powering it up, the heat will evaporate any potential condensation. Put moisture absorber or rice in a paper bag in the plastic bag for safety to absorb any moisture. Then power up. If still inoperative check for DC or AC voltage on speaker connectors. If one side is different, or if DC appears on the outputs, audio output may be shorted. See if plugging in headphones stops the problem, some units disable the audio outputs with headphones plugged in.
