Line Out/Headphone Audio Connector not working

My audio out connector is apparently damaged, when I plug earphones or speakers I only hear sound from one channel. I think the female 3.5" jack is damaged. Does anyone knows if it's posible to replace the connector or the complete sound card?

Thanks in advance.

Yes it is possible to replace the connector itself. It is a bit costly, but much less than a new motherboard or new laptop. It is not something that is easily done, as it does requiring soldering on the board, which if you are not familiar with this, it is not something to attempt, as you can short out the board. There is a company out of Ohio that I would recommend you contact, their phone number is 513.874.3306. You can also email them at They also offer a diagnostics special through eBay by clicking this link
Hopefully this will help you out.

When plugging in a wireless headphone in the audio output the tv's speakers shut down.How can I stop this

The speaker cutout feature whenever the headphone jack is connected is a hard-wired feature of the headphone connector, and cannot normally be bypassed without further electronic circuitry and the associated surgery to install a custom modification in the TV. In order to keep the TV speakers on while using the sound elsewhere, you will have to take the audio output from the IR Audio port, if there is one.

No sound/audio while playing tv.


If there is no audio output from your tv, either your TVs speaker or its audio output IC has damaged. You just check it with an earphone/headphone, if there is an earphone or headphone socket in front panel of your TV. If there is sound from the headphone/earphone, and not from the speaker, means the speaker has damaged. You have to replace it with same type and number. Just check your set's audio out socket, if any provided, connet it to any external audio sourse, like amplifier or so, and check whether there is sound output from it. If not, your Tv/combos' sound processing IC inside has some trouble.
most common fault is related to sound output IC or speaker itself. If speaker is found OK, go to the sound output section. This section can be easly located as speaker wire goes to that section, and follow it. Before replacing the IC, check its leads for any loose or bad soldering. i advice you to resolder all the terminals of that IC, by applying a little more solder, without making any solder bridge loose contacts between them. If this does not helps, replace the IC with an identical type and number. OK.

No sound


First you check the speaker of your Daewoo Tv. To check the whether the speaker is good or damaged, place your year very close to the speaker side of your TV, and switch the TV by its front panel power switch, not by the remote control. If you can hear a "Thumb" sound from the speaker, as the TV is switched on, the speaker is good and you have to to further. If not speaker has got damaged and have to be replaced.
If your TV is provided with an earphone or headphone socket at its fron panel, insert a earphone or headphone pin into it and listen whether there is sound coming from it or not. If ther comes the sound, it doesnot comes to the speaker, means that the headphone or earphone socket is faulty. Replacing it will solve the problem.
If there is AV OUT from your TV, connect it to an amplifier or so to get the sound. If there is sound and no output from speaker, means the Audio Output IC inside your TV is faulty.
Just locate the audio output Ic, and replace it with same type and number. Audio Output IC can be easly located ans speaker wire goes to that section, and follow the speaker wire. locate it. If you need any more assistance, feel free to contact me through Fixya. OK.

External speakers are working but headphones/earphones are not working on my computer

Maybe the headphone connector is broken. If that is correct you need to replace the motherboard. If you had connected the earphone and accidentally received a tug on the cable perhaps the earphone connector was damage.

You will have to check for a possible loose connecction in either the earphone socket or the audio amplifier within the main board - audio section.
It is possible that while using earphone jacks the socket can be damaged over a period of time , there is a cut off of main speaker when headphone is used and releases when taken out.
So check here for audio , if not solder the Audio IC or connectors.

The headphone jack on the TV has switch built-in to kill the TV speakers when headphne jack is used, you need to use powered PC speakers with headphone jack and connect this PC speakers to the Audio line out of the TV set (RED and WHITE RCA audio line out). Basically the powered PC speakers are being used a headphone driver. Or you can get one of those wirless headphone system instead.

No Sound from External Speakers....only from Headset plug.

Hi, had same problem.... unscrew the remote and carefully remove the back end part of the stereo-connector (very careful !) it consists of a very small switch which moves sideways..... this switch is stuck into headphone-modus. Reassemble and it will work again
Note that speakers will work if you remove the switch

I have got 2CH speakers idont know where to plug in to the CPU

There are usually 3 audio connectors on a sound card. For Line in, headphone/line out and microphone. The connectors maybe connected to the motherboard or there is a separate sound card.
These connectors are 2.5mm audio sockets - connect the speakers to the headphone/line out (usually green).
If you are not sure which connector to plug the speakers in, just start a audio CD and plug the speaker plug into each socket connector until you get music from the speakers. You will not damage anything if you plug the speakers in the wrong audio socket.

Sound wont work right /not much at all

Headphone connector is usually designed to pass audio to speakers when the headphones are disconnected. A corroded or bent connector will lose audio. Does the headphone audio level seem ok? Try inserting and removing the headphone jack several times to clean the connector.
