I tried to plug headphones into the tablet, but it didn't recognize that there were headphones. What is going on?
I used these headphones with a laptop computer and a monitor connected to a video game console, and they worked. I also tested with a new pair of headphones, but the tablet still did not recognize the headphones, even though I plugged them into the proper jack.

is it a tablet?....phone?....laptop??? you dont say. If it is a laptop..make sure you are plugging it into the 'headphone' jack...not the input or mike jack. they all look the same except for color. if itis a tablet...go into the settings and see that the headphone jack is set to 'headphones' and not 'speaker' It is possible you have a defective headphone jack...there is a small switch build into the jack that disconnects the speakers and turns the headphone audio path to the headphones. sorry..now I see what the device is "same answer"
This can be a hardware (bad headphone jack) or a software (rom update) issue. If the tablet is in warranty, try taking it to your dealer and see if they have a fix.
Otherwise, some people have had success doing one of the following:
1. Plug headphones in after starting music. Watch for headphone icon to appear on screen, meaning tablet has recognized that headphones are attached. Make sure plug has been put into socket all the way.
2. Install app SoundAbout on your tablet and see if you can route sound to headphones only.
3. Check Settings/About Device to see if there is a software update for your tablet. Install the update and see if that fixes the problem
Because you use the word 'pair' I have to assume that your headphones are Bluetooth-enabled. If this is the case, you can pair and connect the headphones to your phone and/or your iPad, which are, like most, if not all, phones and tablets, Bluetooth-enabled. On the other hand, very few desktop computers and/or laptops are Bluetooth-enabled. Your computer does not recognize your Bluetooth-enabled headphones because it is not Bluetooth-enabled.
If you are talking about the built in speakers, make sure your volume is turned up. And make sure its turned up when the headphones are not plugged in. My android tablet has individual sound profiles so while I might have the sound muted when the headphones are not plugged in, if I plug them in, the volume jumps to my set level because that's where I turned the volume up to last time the headphones were plugged in. I've also had two tablets that the speakers went out completely on that to is a possibility but if you are talking about the built in speakers, check the volume levels first. You can get to them in the settings menu. Its worth noting that plugging anything into the headphone jack will "turn off" the internal speakers altogether.
If you are talking about external, plug into the jack speakers, on a tablet, you're going to need a set of powered speakers as that jack is not going to produce enough power to drive an un-amplified speaker. Make sure you are using a pair of speaks that plug into the wall such as PC speakers.
Second, if you are using powered speakers and still not getting any where, look at the jack end of your head phones and compare it to the jack end of your speakers. I know iPhones and other Apple devices have an extra connect which is why the Apple head phones all have an extra ring. My older headphones are worthless in my iPhone because they lack said extra connection. It's possible your tablet also requires the newer connection and the headphones have that while your speakers don't.
Broad answers, but I couldn't tell exactly what we were looking at based on the questions. Hope it helps, and good luck!
This is the normal way for this laptop ..leave it always with the headphones on selected in that list ..cause if the main speakers don't work well there is no point in using them ..This way you will run whatever yo will plug in ..speakers or headphones..The only setting difference in headphones and stereo out ..is that for headphones will but the speakers of the laptop when plugged in ..This way it will even help you if the speakers are making weird noises cause they are damaged ..
