Question about Sony VAIO® VGN-N130G/B PC Notebook
Headphone jack on used laptop is horribly mangled. When I opened it up to take a look, I noticed that on motherboard right next to 4 pin connector "JSPKR 2" (which passes audio to both internal spkrs) was an empty 3 pin connector marked "J4". Using ohm meter, I traced it back to headphone jack. (pin 1, is right side, pin 3 is left side, and pin 2 appears to be grnd. I am wondering now, if I plug a connector into J3, and route wires to outside of PC, attach female stereo mini plug, would I be able to access audio thru phones, as well as external speakers? Is anybody out there familiar enough with audio wiring on this model to give me an idea if I'm correct or not about this? Thanks alot
Hi there, your question has two way you can fix it:
1) see speaker jack circiut on your motherboard, picture here
there are 5 pins to the jack socket, you may just find out 2 and 3 pin which is stereo audio output lines, and also need a ground 5 pin. then connect 3 wires go outside speaker. this way quite tough for you.
if you cannt do this way go next
2) find a USB audio card instead of onboard one. this is very easy.
hope help you something fixed, please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks! keep in touch your question
