Headphones only work if they aren't fully in

For some reason, my headphones only work if they are not fully plugged in. I know it's not the headphones because I tried them in something else and they work fine. Any suggestions??

When I play a song it will sound like its just instrumental on the speakers and when i plug my headphones in I can hear the words, then I will unplug the headphones and it will go back to instrumental....

the speakers your plugging in aren't making full contact inside the plug which means you either aren't pushing it in far enough or the metal connectors are bent. if your device is in a protective case try taking it out and plugging in your speakers sometimes the case will prevent a tight connection. other than that you need to get the device looked at.

Both speakers on my lg chocolate has stopped working. i can go to my sounds and select play but no sound comes out. during a call i can hear nothing even when i switch it to speaker mode. but when it rings...

I assume you have tried turning the volume up during a call? if so and the volume is all the way up and nothing is coming out, try plugging headphones in to check that there is sound that way. If there is, remove the headphones and that may fix the problem itself as phones can get confused "thinking" there are headphones in when there aren't.

Speakers are ok but headphone is not working

OK. Speaker works/headphones don't! Sultanrajia, what is refering to! Audio Amp, play-back record, computer, radio, TV, all communication equipment. what. It could be broken wire on the headphone jack plug or it could the headphone aren't working. Maybe some bad wire in the headphone cable, faulty plugs.

By the way, do have a Night Visison optic devise that it can take a look into the night. Also, how does the spearkers and headphone work with the Night Vision Optics? stewbison

Connecting headphones

I looked at the manual and I can't find any evidence that you have a headphone jack which is odd. I had 17" samsung and it had a headphone jack. The only thing I can think of is Wireless headphones. You could hook them up to your audio out rca jacks on your TV. I was just looking at a pair on amazon that had the right plug ins. But I don't want to say which ones because I don't want endorse a product when I don't know how well they work. They were reasonably priced. If this helps give me a vote please.

I have a casio keyboard and if i plug headphones into the audio hole they dont work it just plays out loud. help.

It is important that your headphones are STEREO tyoe as a monaural 1/4 inch plug will short out one side of the output audio.

Make sure the plug is fully seated as it has a switch in the unit that disconnects the speakers typically when headphones are plugged in.

If your speakers do not get cut off when you plug in the headphones, it is POSSIBLLE that the switches on the jack have been broken. This would require servicing.

I can only hear in one side of the headphones

Make sure the plug is fully seated in the playback device. Try plugging the headphones in a friend's .mp3 player. If the problem persists, your headphones are probably bad and will need to be replaced.

HELLPPP! with sound

ok, i know this is gonna seem simple and maybe stupid, but i HAVE seen a few people do this before. so i'm gonna say as step 1 here make sure you are not plugging the headphones into the microphone slot and not the headphones slot. they are right next to each other and are very often mistaken for one another. again not tryin to over simplify. if this is not the case, let me know and i'll take you through the next step to figure this out
