Re: sound problem

It is definately a hardware problem if you are plugging whichever into the sound slot.  The internal speakers are suppose to switch off when you plug into it and visa versa when you unplug.


To fix this most would replace the socket but that would mean you have to get into the computer.  Then again if you know what you are doing you fix this up.  At some stage some one force something into that socket and expanded it to stop the switch from workking.

How can I fix my aspire 5349-2804 headphone port?

Power output on a headphone socket is not great - depends on the headphone and speaker resistance - have you tried a cheap pair of in ear headphones to see if it is the headphone socket.

Headphone socket does sometimes break like the power socket its one of the most common problems on a laptop.

If so its not difficult to find a new headphone socket or even re-solder the old one - it may be a dry joint!

Are you getting sound through the laptop speakers for a start.
The headphone socket should interrupt the main speakers automatically so there is no setting in sounds and devices in windows that would cause your problem.

sounds like you have built in speakers for your laptop?
you can try plugging in headphones in to the headphone jack on your laptop to see if you can hear any sound.
if you do then you can purchase a 2 speaker set from walmart or any electronics store and hook that up to your laptop for sound.

If the sound is coming from headphone jack then its mean that the drivers and windows installed correctly, you may check the speakers and speakers connection of your laptop. the speaker jack may be loosen or speakers may gone faulty.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

No headphone sound, but internal speaker works fine.



It is because that your internal speaker is the default play back device other than your head phone or external speaker.

Need to go to your sound setting.

Depend on your operating system, click Start, then click Control panel, then click Hardware and Sound, click Sound.

Under Playback tab, select your external speaker or head phones as default device.

No sound from speakers

The earplug socket in the computer is faulty, needs replacing.

What is going on is that there is a contact that the plug pushes open.
That contact for some reason is not closing when the plug is pulled out.
