Sennheiser RS 120 headphones won't work, only hear static


Adjust the tuning wheel on the side of the headphones so it picks it up.

go to radioshack or some other electronics repair shop, and get an 1/8 inch stereo headphone jack. now you have to open the case of the PSP, an look at the main circuit board. undo the 4 or 5 solder joints in the main vicinity of the Old Jack. once the jack is loose, take it out and replace it with the new one in the exact same place. Now carefully re solder all of the joints being careful not to get any solder on the board, as this will ruin the entire system. Now close everything back up, and you should be good to go.

Sound from headphones on computer terrible


b> WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards You will need to open up your computer to check the back of the input headphones plug look for dusty and bad soldering or loose connections. b> Computer Headphone Jack Has Fuzzy Noise b> When building a computer system, making headphone and microphone jacks are one area where computer manufacturers use the lowest-cost parts. When it comes to computer audio, no perceivable difference in sound quality exists between that of ordinary parts and higher quality ones. Very low-quality parts, or parts that are installed with sub-par wiring, however, can lead to fuzzy sounds and static on headphones.

Symptoms and Component Isolation Start the diagnosis by using different headphones in the jack. If the fuzzy noise or static problem persists over multiple headphones, even if it doesn't happen with all of them, it's probably within the jack on the computer. This is also probably the case if the static increases when you do other things on the computer, like dragging windows around on screen with your mouse, then stops when you stop dragging windows. Causes b> The leading cause of headphone jack static is electromagnetic interference from other components in the computer's case. When electrical devices draw current, they also generate a magnetic field. Overlapping magnetic fields cause static. To combat this effect, the manufacturer provides for the components on motherboards to be grounded - the wiring from the microphone jack will have an extra lead that goes directly to a grounding agent. When your computer headphone jack has a fuzzy sound, or static, the ultimate cause is usually bad grounding on the wiring that the jack plugs into. Rewiring The Jack b> If you're comfortable with a soldering iron, and know enough about electronics and wiring, you can remove the wire to your microphone jack and put in one with heavier shielding, or a better ground. If you're not comfortable with this, a computer repair shop may be willing to tackle this for you; the actual cost in labor is about an hour to an hour and a half of labor time. It may be less if the shop technician is familiar with this sort of repair, as opposed to only knowing how to swap cards on the motherboard. Using Different Ports for Audio Cheaper alternatives exist than rewiring the headphone jack on your motherboard. One of them is to put in a dedicated sound card - which will cost $15 or so, and you may have a compatible one from an old computer that can be scavenged. This will require researching the make and manufacturer of the card to download compatible drivers off the internet, and then installing them on your computer. If you have an unused USB port, the easiest solution is a pair of USB headphones. This has the advantage of working with future hardware as well.

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:

Computer Headphones or "Headset" with mic and phone plugs.

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:

1_22_2012_6_39_05_pm.jpg
Front and rear views of a "1/4" to 1/8" Stereo Adapter Plug" The front plugs into the stereo and the the smaller 1/8" headphones plug into the rear.

I hope this helps & good luck!

No sounds when i play psp games


1) Try plugging in and out the headphone jack with headphones and see if the speakers turn on
2) Make sure the volume button + is pushed until you reach max volume.
3) You may have a broken speaker from dropping the PSP which has occurred to me before.

Sony PSP 'headphone with remote control' problem


2 things you can try. first is to use another headphone to see if the problem still happens. If it does then either the Jack is bad or the Jack needs to be resoldered. Sony is famous for having cold solder connections especially with User type controls or plugs.

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.

Pls help me w/ my psp


Hi Bang Aw,

My best Guess on your problem, is something has contaminated your headphone jack. I say this because it is the common factor between headphones and the Movie Dock. Both devices plug in to the headphone jack. You might get lucky and see something obvious in the headphone jack that is easy to clear up. Replacing the headphone jack in the PSP should be done by a knowledgeable technician. If you have your Receipt and the Warranty sticker under the battery remains intact. you can call Sony at 1 800 345 7669 to set up a repair. They may even have something they will do if you do not have a receipt. But I believe they always rely on the Warranty Sticker and Moisture Indicator for eligibility for exchange. If you want to keep the same PSP, I run the Playstation Clinic In South Carolina. Check out www.playstationclinic.com , and we can do it for under $40 total.
