Go into the case and unplug the frount headphone jack to enable the rear, some motherboards are particular on this issue.

Cannot get speakers to work. ear piece works but not front or rear speakers.


External speakers usually require a power source. This may be provided by USB, power adapter or sometimes batteries.

They need to be plugged in AND switched on. And the audio plug needs to be in the audio socket - easily confused with a microphone socket

If you have checked that and they still do not work, you may have damaged wiring.

One last thing. Some digital speakers require a special digital socket - although the plug is the same. Check that your speakers are analog for use with a standard audio output!

Front 4 usb ports and microphone and headphone jacks don't work but the rear usb and speaker jacks do work. I've had the computer new since 2009 and they have never worked.


it sounds to me like the wires from the front panel connectors are not connected to the motherboard inside the computer case, open the case up find the front connectors wires inside and find out if there are any connectors on the motherboard to plug them into.
the reason the rear ones work is because they are soldered directly to the motherboard.
good luck.

Headphone jack is broken INSIDE the port and is overriding the speakers. Can I override this override?


Or instead of having to open up your computer and messing with the mobo. Just use the control panel in to disable the headphone jack.

Headphone jack has a piece of connector stuck in it and it is making my speakers not work how can i fix this problem?


You will need to remove the broken piece. Power down the computer and unplug it. The only suggestion I would have is see if you get get to the jack from inside the computer and push out the broken piece with a paper clip.

Speakers work in the front headphone jack on my Dell PC, but not in the audio jacks in the back of the computer


I think most computers do not have headphones in the rear, just LINE OUT, which has no enough volume to be used for headphones.

Headphone problem


Did you installed all drivers ?

Are there FRONT audio jacks you are trying to connect your headphones/mic ?
Dit it work before ?

First install all (incl. audio) drivers and try to get audio from BACK connectors (Green is speakers/headphones, Pink is Mic.)
If it workson on REAR, but not on FRONT connectors, check if you have another icon for AUDIO settings in Control panel and try to set FRONT audio settings.

Check if FRONT audio connectors are connected to your motherboard.

Regards.

Headphone jack broke off inside


yes, you could easily open the computer and physically remove the wires from the mother board for the front audio jack. These are pin headers. Most all the time they are labeled.

The rear audio should already be working from the green jack. If not, then perhaps you have the RealTek Audio chipset and software. The realtek audio software generally has a orange speaker icon in the system tray. You can double click to open it, go to the Audio I/O tab and then click the little wrench icon. It will open the connector setting. On the connector settings screen is a checkbox. Disable front panel jack detection. Uncheck that, also a check box for Mute rear panel output when fron headphone plugged in, UNCHECK this. That should do it.

If you want to try further to remove the broken jack make sure the machine is off, use a very tiny needle nose pliers (electronic type) you should be able to pull it out.

What kind of computer do you have? You could also possibly remove the jack assembly from the inside, so you can get a better view for the extraction of the plug.

Soundcard problem on D530 SFF


Sounds like the audio return wires aren't connected. On the motherboard, there is a sound jack on the back left side of the mobo. The jacks from the front audio panel connects to it. Both the Left and Right channel have an out and an in connector. These send the signal to the headphone jack on the front panel and return the signal to the rear output jack if a headphone is not connected. Look for looe or broken wires. The other spot to check is the front headphone jack. If a headphone plug was pulled out or pulled sideways, it could break the solder joint on the PCB panel or break the shunt feeding the singal to the rear jacks. Hope this helps.

No sound output from rear speaker jack


Plugging headphones into the computer will disable sound output from the sound card by design.
