I have a Latitude D600 laptop. When I plug in my headphones, the sound still plays through the built in speakers. When I twist the plug in the jack I can sometimes get sound in the headphones but it still...

I dont think the JACK is the problem, I suspect a bad headphone wire (intermittent) or an incorrect driver, headphone jacks in laptops are software controlled, (no mechanical switch inside) if you hear sound in both the headphones and the speakes it is a driver issue, try updating the driver, if the headphone wire is erratic it can fool the software that controlls the input and do crazy things also...

Good luck!

Laptop dell inspiron 1525 sound only when headphones connected

If you can here sound in headphones, but not through the speakers, most likely the phone jack switch is bad. The whole jack needs replacement.
Also, in some cases, it could be more then that, like Audio CODEC chip on motherboard is bad, but lets assume the best.

Sound is working but internal speaker is not working

Connecting headphones to the system will disabled the internal speakers until the headphone jack is disconnected, at which such time the internal speakers should function again.

If you disconnect the headphones and the internal speakers are not re-activated, then there may be damaged to the microswitch in the jack. (Try rebooting after the headphones are disconnected too)

Dell 610 lptop - haedphone not working,

First try uninstalling the sound drivers from the device manager, then reboot. It will find and reinstall them, then check Dell's support site for updated sound drivers. If you find updated drivers you will need to use the update button for the device in the device manager. If this doesn't work, then it may be a faulty headphone jack. The jack should override the speakers when the headphones are plugged into it. If you can still hear the speakers with the headphones plugged in then the jack is faulty and needs replaced. If the jack does override the speakers or if you get some static then it could be that the jack has come loose or has a loose or broken wire. The only other thing is try a different set of headphones, sometimes laptops get picky and one set will work and yet another set may not.

Dell Inspiron 6000 PC Audio Ports Damaged

You should have sound from the speakers at all times until headphones are plugged into the jack, the jack then overrides the speakers and allows you to listen using the headphones. If the speakers aren't working, it's because they're being overridden by the damaged jack. The only way to correct this is to replace the faulty jacks. You could get a set of external speakers, the con is they're bulky and inconvenient.
