The problem is more complex than having a bad headphone set. Replacing headphone may not work. Problem appears if you keep the notebook on for a long time ( 6 to 7 hours ) the headphone stops working. Shutting off the note book and then switching on does not work. And problem is not with the connector or headphone. If you give enough rest to the notebook ( 7-10 hours )by switching the notebook off headphone works again. Updating Realtek driver did not help. I have finally bought a USB audio adapter whose sound quality is not great but it works. It cost me 300 Indian rupees ( $8 ). Since I am a regular Skype user I use headphone extesively. I use mike port built in with the notebook and headphone port of USB adaptor. It has also taken care of Echo problem the person at the other end with me experienced. A V Veerkar

No sound comes out of the system/speakers on my FW-C255/37

There is a problem with the headphone jack or there is a audio output problem, get some electronic contact cleaner attach straw and spray inside the jack, push the headphone jack in and out quickly and spray again and repeat, this should clean the contact points, if no sound, audio output should be suspect.

Jbl roxy over ear headphones ref 430 need to install new cord. how do i open cans?

Headphone speakers stop functioning properly when the wireconnections to the speaker are broken. This problem often develops when theheadphone cord gets jerked while being worn. The solder connection might alsodetach over time if it was not properly manufactured. The wire can bereconnected to the speaker with a soldering iron to repair the headphone. Beaware, though, that headphones are not designed to be user maintained in thisfashion. In some cases, it is difficult to get to the speaker due to the casingdesign.
Instructions and tools needed
Screwdriver or butter knife (depending on headphone design),Soldering iron, Electrical solder
1 Plug in the solderingiron. It takes a few minutes for it to get warm enough to be used.
2 Unscrew the screws holdingthe headphone casing over the speakers. This step applies only to models thatuse screws in the casing.
3 Insert the end of the butterknife into the seam on the headphone ear pieces. Pry the two halves of thecasing apart. This step is performed only on headphone models that do not usescrews in the casing.
4 Touch the tip of thesoldering iron to the electrical solder. A small drop should melt onto the tipof the iron.
5 Touch the tip of the soldering iron to the end of thedetached speaker wire inside the headphone speaker cavity. Try to get an evencoating of solder around the exposed metal end of the wire. The soldersolidifies on the wire once the soldering iron is removed.
6 Touch the end of the wire tothe solder on the metal tab attached to the speaker.
7 Touch the tip of the solderingiron to where the wire and tab connect. The heat of the soldering iron meltsthe solder on the wire and tab together. This repairs the broken connectionbetween the wire and speaker.
8 Replace the speaker casingonto the headphone. It should snap back into place for models without screws Thanks.

My system is stuck on (c2) headphone and I can not any sound, unless I put the headphones in.

Hi Steve,
This is an indication of faulty earphone jack, this is where the headset directly hooked up. See sample picture below.


When the you hooked up the headset to this jack, internal switch will released the contact to cut the audio goes to the main speaker out of the unit. Once you pulled out the headset plug, the audio will back to the main output speaker out through this switch.
In your cased, there's a malfunction in the internal switch of the earphone jack that's you haven't sound output at the main speaker out.
You may spray contact cleaner directly to the earphone jack while inserting and pulling out the headset plug to clean the lead. If the symptom still persist, you must replaced it with new one to back the unit in normal operation again.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya

No sound from headphones. Speakers work. Win7

Please clarify, Where is the Headphones connected? Front or back? if you tried it on the Front port without success, Plug in the speaker jack to the port where you did connect the Headphone and verify it's working or not. You can also try the headphone on the port where the speaker is connected.

When i connect my headset, the sound come from both headset and speakers and my mic is not working

When you insert the headphone jack into the "audio-output" jack,
which should be GREEN coloured, it should mechanically disable the built-in speakers. If that does not happen, you're connecting it to the wrong socket.

Be sure to insert the microphone's jack into the PINK socket, which is the "microphone-input" socket.

When I have my headphones in the volume works but when I take them out it dosn't work anymore


For PSP Go owners, a very cool feature is the ability to pair bluetooth devices with the system. This recipe will show you how to toggle between outputting audio between the PSP Go’s speakers/headphone jack and a bluetooth headset/speaker.
1. Pair your bluetooth device with your PSP Go.
-Go to Settings > Bluetooth Device Settings
-Be sure to turn the Bluetooth Connection ON. Then select Manage Bluetooth Devices.
-Click on Register New Devices; put your headset into pairing mode and pair it with the PSP Go by following the onscreen prompts.
2. Once your headset/device is paired. Be sure to leave the Bluetooth Connection on.
3. Finally, open up the music player or a game and when you want to switch between the PSP Go’s speaker or your headset, just hold the Audio button on top for about 7 seconds
. It will change the volume icon w/a bluetooth icon and audio on your PSP Go should start outputting via your headset.
To toggle back to speakers/headphones, again hold the audio button for about 7 seconds and it will switch back.
This should work with any bluetooth headset and does not require it being a stereo headset (ie any $5 headset should work).

Audio from tv is not restored by turning off power on headphones

It sounds as if you are plugging the base into a standard headphone jack located on the Television set.

RCA Headphone jacks (incl mini) automatically stop the sound output to the main speakers on almost every set I have seen.. or home stereo.. etc etc

In other words you can take a standard RCA jack.. with nothing connected to it.. plug it in while the music or sound is coming out the main speaker.. and it will cut off the output to those speakers..

If you set has audio outputs on the back.. preferably Fixed Audio Out .. you will need to connect your base unit to those.. turn your set volume to 0 and adjust the headset volume using the control on the right ear-cup.

If you have variable audio out.. you will need to go into your TV sets setup menu.. turn off the speaker.. and turn up the set until you achieve a signal and decent volume through the headset.

If you are missing these connections.. your current “work around” is your only solution.

Best of luck
