Well opening your laptop would not be an easy job. You might damage it because to get to where you can solder it you have open it up.

I suggest that you can buy this usb adapter and you will have earphone and mic.

Sound does not transfer from laptop to earphones when they are plugged in. Tested earphone and test was good. How do I get the sound to come out of the earphones instead of laptop?


I would guess there is a fault with with the earphone jack socket, the soldering to the printed circuit board or perhaps some of the electronic components that might or might not provide attenuation and/or tone correction for the earphones.

Probably be a cheaper cure to use bluetooth.

I use a usb FM transmitter so my sound files can be played on any nearby FM radio.

Earphone jack on my compaq presario c700 stopped working. How do I fix it?


You will need professional help on this, the laptop must be dismantled down to the motherboard level to access the problem. The earphone jack may have to be replaced and requires a high degree of solder skills to remedy the situation.

I have an Acer 5610-2762, and I'm having trouble with the sound. The speaker jack works all the time, but the speakers only work occasionally. when I check the speaker, through the sound check, it says it...


first point of call is the wire into the jack plug itself ,just fidddle with it,if the speakers switch on then off you know it is the solder connection of the jack plug--this is repairable with a replacement soldered correctly-this is the most common fault--second to this is an incorrectly configured (or malfunctioning) sound card
After this,sequentialy the solder connection of the socket(where it is soldered to the motherboard) could be faulty,broken

I need to remove the back to my gateway my6821 to expose the dc jack...my computer just stopped powering up. I get nothing no fan no light nada


The solution I've found is simple.
No need to disassemble computer.
The DC jack will over time crack the solder on the center pin through the pc-board and lose continuity.
First remove the keyboard cover by removing 2 screws (on rear under hinges) and gently prying upward beginning at hinges. Directly under where the power button was and beside the actual power switch find the solder connections for the DC jack. (The jack is on other side of board. You are seeing the bottom of board).
Examine all jack connections for cracked solder around the pins. a magnifying glass helps. Usually it is just the center pin which is toward the rear of the jack, obvious cracking causes intermittent connection or no connection.
If you have no experience soldering I recommend you leave this task to someone who does.
Carefully apply rosen core solder to pin(s) using proper fine tip iron. heat thoroughly til pin moves in hole then apply fresh solder. Be quick. Not too much solder, not too much heat. Be careful not to allow iron's barrel to touch plastic case or tip to build solder bridge to any other connection.
Problem solved.

Satellite l305-s5907 is plugged in but there is no power light on the front and it will not do anything


This sounds like it may be a DC power jack or the AC adapter. Did this happen suddenly or did it occur over a period of time? Have you had to jiggle the AC plug to get power? Look to see if the pin is broken off of the jack inside the plug hole or if it is loose when you plug it in. Or was the cord yanked on? If it did happen suddenly it could still be the DC power jack. They can go out by an arc of power and melt a nearby chip etc. or the jack plastic itself. If you can get intermittent power by moving the tip then it is almost surely the jack. I don't suggest continuing to do this as it will just make an inevitable repair worse and maybe even ruin your MB. You can also look at the AC adapter (unplugged to be safe). Check where it connects to the tip and goes straight to the plug. There is a flexible part there. The check the flexible parts of the cable near the adapter brick on both ends. If no luck it will need to be opened and have the jack looked at first then if that isn't it the MB. Make sure if you bring it somewhere they don't tell you it is a bad MB when it is a jack. One important note. This model has a DC harnessed jack meaning the DC jack isn't soldered to the MB but rather sits in a bracket and has wires that are soldered to the back that then go to a clip that connects to the MB. Often these wires break loose from the jack and just need to be soldered back on. Toshiba is sneaky with some by making the wires hidden inside a "secret trap door" so you can't see where they are soldered or if they broke loose. You can pop this plastic off the back and check the connections and often re-solder them back on. Use heat shrink over the exposed wire if you have it and put some epoxy over the connections and you should be good. Even better than new often.

Battery won't charge


If you are taking about where you plug in your charger, then yes, it can be replaced. Be forewarned that you need to have GREAT soldering skills to perform this task because if you mess up, even a little, it could destroy your notebook. I would open the case an desolder the female plug on the notebook if there is anything left of it. You will need to take it to a Radio Shack or similar store for a replacement part. Also, take your charger in to make sure that you are getting the correct part. When you solder it back into the motherboard, there are usually two solder spots on the sides and one at the back. Make sure that the solder does not touch any other connection. Be sure you use a low wattage soldering iron to perform this so that it does not damage the motherboard from the heat. If this is not the case, please let me know more about the problem and I will give you further instructions.

No sound from ear phones of Fujitsu S-series laptop


First ensure that the headphones are working, by testing them on a divverent devices.

Ensure that computer has sound from speakers, if computer has not sound at all , then you need to reinstall audio drivers.

Then restart the computer with earphone plugged in, this solves a bios control related problem.

If still no luck, than you may have a broken solder joint on the Jack socket, in that case the repair must be done by a technician.

Sounds like your power plug has come desoldered. This is internal and will have to be taken apart to repair. If you are comfortable with taking it apart you can repair it yourself. If you have not ever soldered anything before or taken a laptop apart before you need to have someone else do it.
If you decide to do it yourself you will need the instruction manual to locate all of the screws. You will need a soldering iron and a camera along with a pencil and paper to draw a diagram and take notes. Laptops have a lot of fragile parts in them that will break. Do not do this if you do not know how. This is something that a qualified tech should do. You will see the plug and you will need to re-solder it back onto the board. One wrong move and you could damage the entire computer. If you try to do this yourself you are on your own and I am not responsible nor is anyone else.

Most of them have a break down on how to take it apart. The best thing that I can tell you is below. The only thing to do if you do not have the manual is to find a screw and take them out one by one. There should be a way to pop off the top part above the motherboard. You pry on both sides and it should pop up to get under it. The keyboard should pop up from the bottom. All laptops are not the same. Just be very careful, but if you are not sure that you can do it leave it alone. I could do it because I have done it before. Step by step directions without being there is very hard to do.

Will not power on wont charge it wont do anything


If the outlet is good and the cord is giving power out - It must be dead. That is all anyone can tell you with what you have stated.

Unless the power plug on the laptop has broken loose.

It worked for me.
