    I have a similar problem in that the sound works in one ear while using headphones, and I tried several headphones with the same results. Acer's customer service illogically suggested it was the headphones even though the same headphones work with every other device including my other computer, iPod, etc. I guess you get what you pay for.

Typicaly when a headphone jack stops working it means that there is a hardware issue. Check to see if you get sound from the PC under normal circumstances, (without headphones). If so... Your headphone jack may have come lose from the main board. In this case it will need to be taken to a shop to be re-soldered to the board, or just replaced with a new one. If you do not get sound even from the standard speakers, it very well could be a software issue, (currupted driver, etc.). In this case. Go to your PC's support page on the web and try re-installing the driver for your sound device.

Got the headphones jacked in. The problem is the speakers are 'on' at the same time and cant be shut off. Please help and thanks.


Your headphone jack's legs inside the jack are probably slightly sprung and still shorting to the speakers. Sometimes you can spray some compresses air into the jack to try to dislodge any lint, dust, etc. The only other thing you can try (without taking the computer apart) is to spray some electrical contact cleaner into the headphone jack, then work the headphone jack in and out a few times, hoping to clean the contacts inside. Other than those things, you will probably have to take the computer apart to replace the jack, or have it serviced. If you google the problem, you will find a lot of information about taking laptops apart.

Headphone jack quit working


Hi. There's no problem with your laptop. It is you jack that faulted. Try another new jack or have a new one. maybe your cable has some cuts that are unnoticed since it is inside the rubber coated wire. It may be caused by constantly fondling the cable while at work or operation.
To check the cable functionality use multi tester to check its functionality. If you want to have easy trouble shooting replace the jack cable.

Please reply for any feed back so that I can suggest more option to your problem.

Cannot hear sounds through headphones


if you are able to hear normally from the speakers and not from the headphones possible reasons could be:
the audio is muted or very low
there is a mute switch on the headphone that is turned on
the headphone is not firmly plugged in or is in the wrong site eg microphone
hope it helps
please inform if it helps..

Acer Aspire 3680 - No headphone sound


I have had the same problem with my acer aspire 3680. I have been trying different things, and have found one thing that works for me. When I shut the computer down I unplug my speakers first. When I start the computer I wait until the computer starts completely then I plug my speakers in. This has been working for about a week for me with no headphone jack problems at all. Hope this helps someone.
