Don't just turn off the headphones, unplug them.. the jack disables external sound when it's inserted.

A hard reset of the NextBook might restore sound to the internal speakers if the above wasn't the cause.

    A youtube video suggested the following: Power off device, select volume up and then power, hold power for 5-7 seconds and let go without releasing volume up. When u get the android menu scroll down to wipe data navigating with the volume buttons and then to wipe data.

Why compucessory headphones not working

Did you plug them into the headphone jack or the microphone jack on your computer ? Usually those 2 jacks are next to each other and it is easy to confuse them. If this is not the problem, maybe the headphones have a switch to turn them on (this would be unusual, but you never know...). Hope this helps.

Can I connect my hmdx rave to my next book?

Yes, you'll need a 3.5 mm audio cable (PC audio) with M/M ends. Connect the cable between the headphone jack of the Next Book and the Aux Input of the Rave speaker. The Aux Input jack on the speaker is between the charging port and the On/Off switch. The headphone jack is between the power button and the DC Power Input port on some Next Book models; you should check your unit's documentation for the exact location. Only the volume controls on the Rave speaker will work. You'll need to select tracks and press Play/Pause on the Next Book.

I hope this helps.

I have a Marshall MG100HDFX 100-Watt Amplifier half stack (solid state) and I now am not getting ANY sound out of the amp. I changed the fuse and the power module behind the fan, and still no sound,...

plug headphone in the effects send jack...If you get somme sound (won't be too loud) there, that means preamp sections are probably ok. Drive a signal into the effects return jack... If power amp responds, it is OK... If both these are OK, then suspect the switch contacts on these two jacks that forward the preamp to the power amp when effects unit is NOT plugged in.
These contacts are a chronic problem.

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

No sound, too.

Tricky little one this IF your Not careful It will pass you like a speed train Without you noticing.

I also have a pair of Headphones with mic for Christmas, they are of a Usb plug-in type.
I noticed when i plug them in they DON'T respond.
I then messed about with settings/using different ports /making sure they were Found via New hardware install But to No avail.

ONE THING i did notice is that Usually When you plug a NEW device into your computer (hardware) i.e. your Nice new phones
You SHOULD get a sound & a detection of the device.
This dectection is notice by the pc in the bottom right hand corner of the taskbar.
New device found headphones ect....
I found out that my headphones wernt detected UNTIL i turned off my speakers.
Odd? well yes....
as seeing as you'd think ( IF ) youve already been into the settings, found your [phones] set them up using the wizard & the mic as well ( if you have one )
you should be ok.
SOMETIMES however EVEN if you havent STILL got your speakers on. Something strange happens I DON'T know how to explain it but what happens is...

The system detects a sound device like your phones.
It then decides on the spot either to Use them Or NOT bother
(stubbern eh?)
It also decides to Set- certain volume controls (mic (it usually mutes) / Volume is usuall ok but mutes phones & not speakers))
& other misleading configs
So as you can see its a little confused & this doesnt help us...

I DON'T know why it has these funny five minutes but it does.
The pc gets confused somwhere along the way if think mainly its a software conflict thing
You'd think it is an easy task, just pluging in headphones & thats it (Plug & Play) but #Oh No !!! thats Too much to ask'...

As I Said for some reason when i comes to sound, pc's detecing new devices & setting them up correctly 100% Doesnt happen with the best of us...
Now then.... (sorry for the Gibber BUT I HATE this problem)
1st of all...
Make sure your only using 1 sound set-up program like the standard windows one in the control panel (Sound & audio devices)
If you have others like the ones you get with mothboard drivers, unistall them for now (it only confuses your pc)
YOU can install them later if you like but if you do remember to rid the windows 1 or Disable it or leav it set at all defaults.

Jump into the sounds & audio device properties /Via control panel
Speaker settings at the bottom of the first page & go into advanced.
The speaker setup should stay on desktop speakers
Just to make sure go into the next page (performance)
& click on (restore defaults) & click ok
Back onto the first page...
Device volume / Check that mute is NOT ticked & then click on advanced
Check all sliderbars on NOT ticked
Click on options & then properties & tick all boxes. click on ok.
Double check that you have NO boxes ticked on the sliderbar volume control page.
Next goto the audio page
Sound playback device/sound recording device(SHOULD) be set to your headphone set.
If you click on advanced on the sound playback device,the speaker set up should STILL be set up with Speakers.
This is where the problem usually is. (click ok)
open the next page (voice)
Both devices should be set with your headset
Again click the advanced tab & the output should be set with you speakers showing.
If you have a mic
Clcik on volume tab, click on options & advanced controls
Click on option again & the properties
make sure your headphones are set, tick the box for the microphone
Click on playback & make sure all boxes are ticked
Click on ok
& thats it.
Shut down & restat your pc
Oh one more thing Sir please kindly.......
Make sur you have your headset plug in before you do all this....

Many thanks.....
