Speakers won't work after I use headphones


This more about what you are connecting the speakers to.
The headphone jack is essentially a switch that mechaniccally opens the ground connection to the speakers. It is a spring that is opened by the headphone jack pushing the spring contact open. What often happens is the headphone plug gets pulled at an angle and forces the clip to be open permanently.
Sometimes the jack can be removed and replaced. Take the music source to a repair shop.

I am gettting sound through my headphones but not my speakers why?


Normally when you plug in the headphones, the plug turns off the speakers.

Power for the speakers come from the amp to the plug ... there is a switch that opens when you insert the plug. Makes sense in 99% of the cases if you think about it. Why do you need the spakers if you have headphones on?

Why does my I-mac not recognise both internal and external speakers in the sound preferences, so that I can switch between the two without having to unplug the external speakers from the headphone output.


There is an internal switch inside the actual 3.5 mm headphone/speaker jack. When you have either headphones or speakers plugged in, it automatically switches to external. FYI: Macs are also notorious for getting 'stuck' in this mode (external) and I've had to walk numerous people through the steps to correct this. My Macs are definitely not excluded :) I hope this helps.

Dell studio xps no sound will come out of the speakers


I assume you mean the internal speakers.

First thing I would try is hooking up a set of headphones. If you can hear sounds thru the headphones then there could be an issue with the headphone jack. (the jack acts like a switch, switching OFF the speakers when you have a plug inside, and switching them back ON when you remove the plug).

If you dont hear sounds thru the headset or speakers, check your device manager, and remove/reinstall your audio driver. You can download the driver at the dell website Support.Dell.com.

My speakers wont work suddenly unless I am using my headphones


Make sure in the volume mixer that it is using the right sound device. You most likely have it set to the wrong device output. When you plugged in the headphones in kinda automatically switches, but to use the speakers again you have to do it manually. Just hook up a cheap av receiver to your computer and use this headphone input instead. a 100$ 5.1 av receiver beats any pc speaker system.

Are they wireless speakers? You might try updating the sound card driver.
