I have a phillips 170B monitor and it has the green and pink ports on the back for a headset, however I get no sound when I plug in to them. I went to the Settings button on the front of the monitor and selected More Settings->Audio Options->Stand-alone and set it to On.
From the manual I found, this model does NOT support ANY audio connections. http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/1/170b1a/170b1a_dfu_aen.pdf
170B Product Features
- 17" color LCD monitor with excellent display performance. - Dual input-accepts both DVI Digital and VGA Analog input. - Advanced AUTO adjustment automatically optimizes picture quality. - Wide viewing angle technology. - 7.1 (181mm) small footpring with full detachable cables. - USB Bay for upgrade to USB Hub. - Optional protective cover to prevent LCD panel damage. - Standard VESA mounting holes and optional tilt/swivel Wall Mount Kit.
But if yours does have these ports, I would suggest they are not for a headset, but for connection to the _PC_. I would suggest your model monitor has built in speakers, and the green port is the INPUT from the PC Speaker output. The pink goes back to the PC from the MIC which is built into the screen.

what model do you have? most older emachines, gateway and dells are very similar...1) round purple ps2 to keyboard, 2) round green ps2 to mouse, 3) teal oblong serial 1 is older output to modem, 4) blue oblong vga output to monitor, 5) reddish long oblong is parallel port to printer........ all these are usually not used on newer models...others include a white oblong for dvi to monitor, or small rectangular for hdmi to monitor, as well as the traditional usb 2.0 and usb 3.0 for a multitude of input and output usages...... small round female ports are for sound.. pink for mic, green for main speakers, black for rear surround, gray for side surround, orange for center surround, and blue for line in....may also have an esata port (not used much) and a ethernet port for internet connection (looks like a slightly bigger telephone jack port).... might have a spdif (sony phillips digital interface) for digital audio.....hope this may help...
I thought the front was for a microphone and headset. I don't think those are speaker jacks. Look closely at the icon that is next to the pink and green on the front, does it show the icon of a microphone and headset?
Normally the speaker jack will show and arrow going out which means sound going out. If you look at the speaker port in the back of the computer it is normally the light green port. Notice the icon on it. Does the icon on the front look the same as the one on the back? Is the color on the front the same as the one on the back? I think you're plugging into the wrong port.
Make sure you have the volume up in your Audio/Sound properties and make sure you don't have the speakers on mute. Also make sure you turn the speakers on and turn the volume up on them.
GREEN -- if you have a headset, or you have external speakers, connect it here,
to get 2-channel stereo output ("left" and "right").
BLUE -- if you have an iPod (or iPod Touch), or audio-cassette player, and you want to feed the "audio-output" from those devices into a program that will record the sound on the "line-input" port on your computer, then you need to connect this port.
Since your new motherboard does not support 5.1 audio-output, you need to purchase a sound-card that has GREEN and PINK and ORANGE and BLACK sockets, so that you can get sound into the "middle" and "back-left" and "back-right" speakers.
Or, just connect the GREEN, to use your speakers in two-channel mode.
You'll also need to access the web-site for the manufacturer of the motherboard, to download the correct device-drivers for the audio-hardware embedded onto the new motherboard, in order to get _ANY_ output out of your sound-card.
What happens if you try your X1 on a PC instead of on your Xbox? That's a good test of the mic... Here's how:
- Plug the X1 USB into a USB port on your PC.
- Plug the X1 green plug into the green Line Out jack on your PC.
- Plug the X1 pink plug into the pink Microphone jack on your PC.
Try recording the sound of your own voice on the PC, using Sound Recorder or whatever. Do you hear the sound of your voice? If so, your mic is working and the X1 chat/controller cable is probably broken. Replace the chat/controller cable.
If not, then the X1 mic is broken and you should contact Turtle Beach for service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you try using the X1 mic on your PC? Green plug to green jack, pink plug to pink jack, USB plug to USB port. Talk into the X1 mic. Can you hear your voice? If yes, then you probably have a bad chat-controller cable. If no, then your X1 mic may not be working. If that's the problem, you should contact Turtle Beach tech support for help. email@example.com.
you haven't mentioned it that i can see but when you have the green plug into the green can you hear sound ?... if so look for the speaker icon on the lower right of your screen. open that to volume control.... look at the mic setting... is the mute box marked ? if so uncheck it and try the mic again
Hello, Generally your headset will have a green plug and a pinkish plug at the end of the cord. The green cord is for headphones/sound output and the pink cord is for the microphone/sound input. Look in the back of your computer case, not the screen. The case is the box the screen/keyboard/mouse is connected to. behind the case you should see the pink/green/purple round outlets in a row. Green plug goes into the green outlet and same with the pink. Please rate me well if this helped. -Take Care, -WN
