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.

Re: Line Out/Headphone Audio Connector not working

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.

Plug in headphones
When pop up comes up, select "headphones" as the item plugged in (NOT line out)

And then it should work.

It is a Dell Inspiron 1526 & the question is -- Can I purchase speakers that it will support so my husband can hear the music being played on the DVD in the computer's drive?

That is in most cases possible and advised because most of laptops have very simple audio functionality and quality.
You have three options
1. Buy an amplified speaker set(there are several different kinds and combinations) that connects to your laptops "Line out" audio jack(The green one, the pink connector is for the mic.).
2. Get a USB speaker set, which connects to one of the USB connectors on your laptop. Usually not difficult to install.
3. connect your laptop to a micro stereo system or a home cinema or even a TV! This option requires a little more knowledge of audio/video functionality, but is not very hard for someone capable of following instructions!

Wish you success!

I have a 4 month old Dell Studio 1535 laptop, with audio problems

Firstly check that the microphone level is down or turned off as this sounds like some sort of feedback that's being produced.

Check the microphone and try to play music again.

Please post back

Good luck.

Earphone plug is not working

do your speakers have their own volume knob? sounds like its turned way down,master volume in control panel under audio devices,also volume controll in the sound card software ,nvidia,realtek,maestro,ect. whitch ever one you have,if they are all turned up ,try turning it up useing your hotkeys on your keyboard,if none of that works,uninstall all of your audio drivers,and reinstall them from the support web site at,the wires that go to that headphone jack inside are very small,doesnt take much to damage them,droping it a couple times is enough,reinstalling the software is the best chance,if that doesnt do anything ,you will have to go inside,if this only happens when your using the optical drive then disregard everything i just said,and replace it.make sure its locked in securely

I unplugged my headset to listen to music on youtube..when I plugged them back in, nobody can hear me talking on skype,,,I have played around for 4 hours and still I cannot be heard. HELP


Please check if the color of your connector is in exact place. If you want to used mic please insert it to color pink or red then if you want to hear sometimes using your headphone plug it the connector for audio in green. Usually if your head phone has mic then the connector has two different plug for mic and audio out.

No sound out of the speaker of my lap to dv9000

hi im josh may i he lp you? try this; Sound cards range from simple built-in features to elaborate two-piece devices with physical control panels that mount into a 5 1/4-inch drive bay. The basic purpose of sound cards is to allow the user to hear sounds played by the OS and programs, along with music from audio CDs and other audio files, plus sound from DVD and other types of videos. In addition, these allow for voice communication using software such as Yahoo Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, and Windows Messenger, along with Internet telephone calls, voice-recognition software, and other uses.
Sound Card Removal and Installation Sound cards are physically installed and removed in the same way as any other card using the same interface (PCI or ISA), except that there are likely to be analog audio cables connected to it inside the computer. On a motherboard with onboard sound, there will also be audio connectors. These connectors are for connecting analog audio to optical drives, modems, and other devices. Some of these connectors are polarized, but even if they aren't, the worst that can happen is that the right and left audio channels could be reversed. Figure 8.4 shows the audio connectors on a sound card.
Figure 8.4: A sound card's audio connectors. External Sound Connections Sound cards can vary as to the number and type of external inputs and outputs. The most basic, usually found on motherboards with built-in sound, have three:
Microphone input: This is for a computer microphone, although battery- powered condenser mics usually work in these jacks.
Line input: This is for an external line source such as a cassette deck or CD player's line outputs.
Speaker/headphone output: This is a headphone-level output that can sometimes drive small, non-amplified speakers. They are usually connected to amplified speakers.
A sound card with a built-in amplifier would have full-power speaker outputs, able to drive most non-amplified speakers. More advanced cards have a whole assortment of inputs and outputs. On many cards, the icons that identify each jack are very difficult to see and interpret, especially when you are struggling just to see any part of the back of the computer. Consult the manufacturer's documentation. Figure 8.5 shows sound card jack panels.
Figure 8.5: A sound card jack panels. Now look carefully at Figure 8.5. The concentric arcs represent sound waves. An arrow pointing toward the center indicates a line input, while an arrow pointing away from the center represents a line output. The microphone and speaker icons are more illustrative than are the others.
Diagnosing and Repairing Sound Problems There are a number of steps you can take to correct sound problems. First, make sure the speakers are powered, turned on, and turned up. Make sure all external connections are correct, and that the cables aren't damaged. Run System File Checker (see Chapter 11). Reinstall the sound drivers. Sometimes, you'll have to remove the device in Device Manager, shut down the computer, remove the card, restart the computer and uninstall any programs that came with the sound card, and then shut down the computer again. Then, follow the manufacturer's directions for installing the card, or just reboot and see if Windows will install it correctly. If you have any trouble with resource conflicts, which would be evidenced by instant lockups, go into the BIOS and make sure Plug and Play is enabled.
Selecting a Sound Card A basic sound card is good for most people. High-end models are good for gamers and musicians. Some people like to have surround sound with their computers, so surround sound models are common.

good luck

Sound Problem with Headphone

First try the headphones in a different machine, such as an mp3 player or cd player to make sure the headphones still work.

Try going to the start button, then settings and control panel. Then select "Sounds and Audio devices" Down at the bottom you should see "Speaker settings." Click the "Advanced" button and then select stereo headphones.

Then, place the headphones into the green audio jack (or the headphone jack up front if you have them), play some music, and then gently wiggle the jack to see if some of the sound makes it into the headphones. If not, try slowly pulling the headphones out of the jack while the music is plaaying. you might find that the jack has slipped a little and may play only if your connector is slightly pulled out or more firmly pushed in. If his helps, then your audio connector is loose and you should replce the sound card. If the card is on the motherboard, you can disabled it when you put a new card in.
