Can't get my laptop speakers to work through headphone jack

I'm trying to show things in my class, and I bought supplementary speakers to fill the room with sound, but the speakers aren't working when I plug them into the headphone jack.

The reason for this is that the audio thru this jack is attenuated to a level where you don't loose quality and to prevent ear damage. You better try the audio out or audio monitor output jacks located in the back of the tv(if this model comes with them). you'll probably need an audio amp to get the speakers to work properly though.

Headphone jack not working


Hi,

I find that there is a problem with your headphone speaker.
Try with some other headphone, even if it is not working, then you need to take it to the service center.



Cheers,

Got the headphones jacked in. The problem is the speakers are 'on' at the same time and cant be shut off. Please help and thanks.


Your headphone jack's legs inside the jack are probably slightly sprung and still shorting to the speakers. Sometimes you can spray some compresses air into the jack to try to dislodge any lint, dust, etc. The only other thing you can try (without taking the computer apart) is to spray some electrical contact cleaner into the headphone jack, then work the headphone jack in and out a few times, hoping to clean the contacts inside. Other than those things, you will probably have to take the computer apart to replace the jack, or have it serviced. If you google the problem, you will find a lot of information about taking laptops apart.

My laptops speakers stopped working


Have you tried a pair of headphones to see if they work?
Is the sound ouput muted? (a lot of laptops have a physical button to
do this...

check to see if the laptop is muted. Also, check the
volume control to see if everything is up where it should be, including
Speaker Out.

If I've got this all straight, the only thing that it can be is an
issue with the plug on the speakers and the jack on the laptop.

Obviously the computer is putting out sound to the headphone jack as
evidenced by your ability to listen through headphones. The speakers
work on another computer. So, it has to be something specific about
the Speakers on this laptop. Plug/Jack problem is the only thing that
comes to mind.

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.
