    i tried the contact solution, no help. i tried plugging my speakers into this jack, as well as headphones,
    and i still only get sound through built in monitor speakers. i cant use normal cpu connections for
    anything because i am using this monitor as display for xbox 360 using HDMI.

  • wilystik Feb 07, 2010

    i thought it was clear that im using the L2610NW

  • wilystik Feb 07, 2010

    this jack is located in a very difficult spot to reach behind the base stand, i can barely get to it to plug in,
    much less get any kind visual

  • wilystik Feb 07, 2010

    after a closer look this jack says audio in, there is NO audio out so i guess that's it,
    i'm stuck with this situation



  • wilystik Feb 07, 2010

    can try

  • wilystik Feb 07, 2010

    not really a solution for me, i would be totally lost, thanks for the help

Hi,

a ) possible that built in switch inside the headphone jack is stucked,


here is a sample illustration:


i have headphones plugged into - dcf19e4.jpg


those contacts breaks whenever a plug is connected, it is normally

close,


In your case the speaker is electrically disconnected whenever

a plug is connected.



Although in some cases, headphones jack have separate audio

amplifiers.


b ) Here is just a suggestion, you can use external headphones

amplifier if you intend to hear the sound or music privately,

some computer speakers have one on them.


c ) Should you feel to DIY , have an electronic contact cleaner and

spray the headphone jack with it. ( you can find it , in your nearest

electronic store ).


hope these helps

HOW DO I GET SOUND ???


Your HP Pavilion F1903 monitor does not have built-in speakers. Your desktop computer probably did not come with speakers. You will have to plug computer speakers into the audio-out jack (green) on the back of your computer to play through external speakers.

There are also a number of USB speaker systems available that use USB both for power and for the audio signal.

Alternatively, there is probably an earphone jack on the front panel of your computer. If you plug headphones into that you should be able to listen on your headphones.

Speaker in/speaker out not working


Are you feeding the monitor via an HDMI connection? HDMI carries digital audio as well as digital video signals. If using DVI or VGA to connect it to your PC, there is no audio being fed to the monitor, so nothing can come out, unless you have a separate audio cable running to the monitor as well from the computer :o)

No Speaker Sound, Thinks Headphones are Plugged in


If you don't plan on using the headphones - take the cover off and there may be a cable to the headphone jack board that can be unplugged. This will disable the headphone jack from sending a bad signal to the micro. If you want to be able to use the headphone, then the jack is going to have to be replaced.

My computer is a SyncMasterP2570HD i cant get any sound to come out but it is detecting sound how do i fix it


The Samsung SyncMaster P2570hd is a monitor with speakers; it isn't the computer itself. I'll assume that you are dealing with a computer connected to the monitor and not a set-top box. Make sure that Mute is not enabled on the computer. There should be an icon on the lower right hand side of a Windows desktop. If the mute is enabled, it will have a red circle with a diagonal line through it. Left click on the icon to remove the mute (change the volume or click on the mute icon). Test the monitor's speakers by connecting it to another device with known good audio output.

Next how are you connecting the monitor to the computer (VGA, DVI or HDMI)? If you are using VGA or DVI (including DVI to HDMI), you need to connect an audio patch cable (3.5 mm) between the speaker (green port on the back of a sound card) or headphone jack of the computer and the audio input jack of the monitor. The audio input jack is between the DVI and VGA ports. You can test the output of the speaker jack on the computer with regular computer speakers. Plug in the power cord (or USB cable) for powered speakers. If the free-standing speakers work, check the volume setting on the monitor with the +/- buttons to the right of the menu button. Do not press menu first, though. If that doesn't solve the problem, continue using the separate speakers. (Unless the monitor is still under warranty, it usually isn't worth taking apart a monitor to replace the speakers. You may be able find replacement parts online.)

If you are using an HDMI cable, check the output audio setting to see if the HDMI audio is available. For Windows, click on Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound (Windows 7). Then click on Manage Audio Devices under Sound. In the Playback tab, check what available audio devices you have. Make the HDMI the default device by right-clicking on it and selecting Make this the default device. (Other versions of Windows will a slightly different route to this panel.) You may need to restart the computer to get the audio signal on the HDMI cable after setting this. Note: not all video cards/computers support HDMI audio. If you don't see HDMI listed in the Playback devices, connect an audio patch cable as with a VGA or DVI cable, described above. Use stand-alone speakers if the monitor's speakers are bad.

I hope this helps.

(I have had the speakers fail in monitors; <$30 separate speakers are an adequate replacement for those built into a flat panel monitor.)

Why is the sound not working on my acer screen


How do you have the screen plugged in?
If via HDMI, audio should go to your screen, but you may need to output to speakers (that is, if your monitor does not have built-in speakers).
If indeed outputting via HDMI, make sure your computer KNOWS it's supposed to output audio through the HDMI port as well as the video.
Finally, you might just need to plug speakers/headphones into the monitor - most have an audio jack on the underside, by the stand.

Is there any way to use headphones on the HP 2159m computer monitor? possibly external computer speakers? I have a desktop computer connected to the monitor by a HDMI cable.


There is no audio output on that monitor. So decoding the HDMI into analog is out. However, the simple fix is to plug your speakers or headphones into the green 3.5mm headphone jack on the back of your computer, and change the default audio device in windows. You can use both audio cards at once for different tasks, such as having someones voice come over your HDMI cable on the monitor, while listening to music on the audio out of your computer.

If you need any help setting the audio card, let me know.

My view sonic monitor has no sound


Troubleshooting Sound Issues Verify that the audio cable is connected to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card and plugged into the AUDIO IN or LINE IN of the Monitor.   Make sure there are no cables connected to the Headphone Jack (located next to the AUDIO IN port) on the monitor. If there is, please disconnect that cable and try the speakers again. Connecting a cable to the Headphone Jack disables the speakers. If there is no cable connected into the Headphone Jack, test a pair of headphones into that jack to see if you can hear sound out of the headphones. If you are able to hear sound out of the headphones, disconnect the headphones and try the speakers again.   Verify that the Mute on the monitor is not on or the Volume is not turned down.    Verify that the Mute on the computer is not on or the Volume is not turned down.<    If there is still no audio from the monitor's speakers, connect the Audio cable to another audio source like a portable CD player or tape player headphone output. If audio can be heard through the monitor's speakers, then there may be an issue with the computers sound card.    Connect another set of computer speakers (if available) or headphones to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card. If NO audio can be heard then there is an issue with the sound card. Verify with the computer's manufacturer for additional assistance.   LCD TVs Troubleshooting No Sound from a LCD TV No Sound when using RGB (when connected to a PC) Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the computer. Note: On the N1700W use the GREEN mini-jack; on this model Audio is SHARED between DVI and RGB, there is only 1 audio channel for data connections. The N1700w is designed to take a 1.0v RMS audio signal for optimal sound quality.   Confirm that both the LCD TV Mute and Windows Mute are off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the monitor or remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Confirm that PC volume is sufficient by using Windows/Macintosh Volume adjustment settings.   Try plugging another audio source such as a CD or Cassette Player directly into the Audio port on the LCD TV to confirm the speakers work, or try plugging headphones or external speakers into the sound card on the Computer. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your Computer for further support. No Sound when using S-Video/Composite/ Component Video Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Confirm Mute is off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the LCD TV or Remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Try plugging headphones or external speakers into the audio port on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Note: Some ViewSonic monitors do not include speakers.

Can 2.1 pc speakers work thru headphone jacks?


No it's not possible to have a sound. Because the HDMI and the Headphone (3.5mm jack) are on two different technologies.

The monitor does not have a way to convert the sound from HDMI to Headphone.

There could be a converter that might convert the sound signal from HDMI to headphone (but I'm not sure).

No sound


Dear marco1983,

there are no speakers on G2400W, just the plug hole for speakers that routes forward the sound signal from the HDMI signal.
