When I plugin my headphones The sound dosn't go to the headphones.


First, try plugging in different headphones. If those work, then your headphones are broken and you need to replace them.

If those don't work, then please check to make sure you're not plugging them into the microphone jack - you'll see two identical plugs, usually the headphone one is marked with a pair of headphones.

If you're plugging known working headphones into the correct port, then your computer must logically be the broken thing.

Why do I only hear static


Hi Cathy.. it sounds like you might be connected to the wrong jacks instead of the output that the headphones need.

Most high quality stereo headphones have a single 1/4" stereo plug that would readily plug into a 1/4" jack on the front of the stereo labeled "PHONES" or HEADPHONES".

Many lower quality "computer headphones" or headsets have two 1/8" plugs. One is often black or red and is for an included microphone that may be a boom type (shown below) connected to one of the speakers or an "in-line" type built into the cord itself. The headphone speakers in the headset get their signal from the other plug - which is usually green; but could be any color really. There should be 3 metal parts on the stereo headphone plug. The tip, the middle ring and the bottom ring. Many times the mic is mono (not stereo) and only has only a tip and a bottom ring on the plug. You can see stereo headphone and microphone plugs he picture below:

Your Yamaha stereo will probably NOT have 1/8" jacks to directly plug the headphone into. You can buy an adapter that you would plug your headphones into and then plug the adapter into the 1/4" jack on the stereo. One is pictured below:

I hope this helps & good luck!

Headphones plugged in but sound still comes from speakers no sound from headphones


Hi,

Going by the description of the issue, I suspect that the headphones are not plugged into the correct jack.

Please check once and plug in the headphones to the black/lime green jack which has the headphone icon on it.

There is a sound on the computer. But when I put on the headset, it does not work. The sound on the laptop still goes on.


If the sound of your laptop does not transfer to your head phones first ensure that you have plugged your headphones in the proper jack (I know this sounds silly but it happens.) You may have mistakenly plugged your headphones into the mic jack. Secondly if you are plugged into the proper jack try a different set of headphones to verify that it is not a problem with the headphones. If you get the same result with a second set of headphones then your headphone jack may be bad or came unplugged from your motherboard. In this case disassembly of the laptop may be necessary to check the headphone jack. I would wait for a few more suggestions before going that far though. Hope this was helpful.

Cannot hear out of both left and right headphones unless I twist the insert plug. Can this be fixed?


Plug another headphone in walkman to check wither headphone jack in walkman is damaged or its headphone plug.
If other headphone gives same problem then open walkman and re-solder headphone jack in circuit.
Hope this will solve your problem.

Sentry HO900 headphones


The H0900 should come with a mini-plug adapter. The headphone jack in my TV was deeply inset, so I kinda reversed it. The adapter plugs into the transmitter, then the Red/White plugs, into that, then the long end of the cord into the TV.

Works fine for me. My problem will be posted seperately.

Mic


If your headphones have a single plug you cannot plug these into a regular speaker connection or headphone connction and get mic and sound, you will need a headset that has 2 separate plugs (one for Mic and one for headphone) or a splitter you can get a radio shack. Most headsets have only one plug and there are connections for both the mic and the headphones on this plug, but the headphone connection on the computer has only connections for the headphone and therefore cannot detect the microphone.
