    more than likely the audio jack has become worn and one of the pins is no longer connected to the board properly, however the fact that another user said he soldered the jack and it didnt fix the problem makes me wonder.

  • djermaker Oct 30, 2008

    it might also be a problem with the jack input itself and not the connection to the board. inside there are two bits of metal on either side which clasp onto the jack when you press it in, just check to make sure they are seated properly and not pushed too far so as to inhibit proper contact with the jack.

Having problem with audio, with auria tv (when unplug headphones, sound will not come back on tv)


The socket for the jack on the set has a leaf connection that when you insert the jack moves aside routing sound to head phones and cutting it off to speakers= the socket for the jack is out of position inside, either needs to be replaced or tweaked inside just a little.

Not much else can cause this if the headphones work.

Le32d400e sound gone


You might have an issue with the headphone socket where the jack goes---when jack goes in it moves a leaf in the socket to turn off the speakers====try to slightly wiggle the jack in and out===the socket may be cleaned with electronic cleaner.

My speakers work but my mic does not. I cant see any hardware for my mic


Note that the microphone is not listed individually in Device Manager because it works through your sound card. Perform the steps in the following sections in order, and then test to determine if your issue is resolved after each section.

NOTE: The microphone should be selected as the recording device in the Volume Control tool(sndvol32.exe).

To verify this, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Run.
  1. In the Open box, type sndvol32.exe, and then click OK.
  2. Click Properties on the Options menu.
  3. In the Adjust volume for box, click Recording.
  4. Click OK.
  5. In the Microphone box, verify that the Select check box is selected.
All the properties listed on the Playback section of the Volume control are independet of the recording settings. So you could record through the microphone by selecting it on the recording section, and mute it on the playback section. Then, you could record sound, but wouldn't hear it through the speakers while you are recording. Check Your HardwareIf your microphone has never worked, or if it has stopped working, first check the physical connection of the microphone. Verify that it is firmly plugged into the microphone port instead of the headphone or speaker port. If you are not sure which port is correct, you can check the sound card to see if it is marked (sometimes with a picture of a microphone), you can use a process of elimination, check the documentation that came with your hardware, or contact the hardware manufacturer. Sound Recorder
  1. Run the Sound Recorder tool: Windows 95Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to Multimedia, and then click Sound Recorder. Windows 98Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to Entertainment, and then click Sound Recorder.
  2. After Sound Recorder is running, click Record (the circle on the right side), and then speak into the microphone. If it is plugged into the correct jack, the line on the display should move up and down. If it does not move, sound is not making it through your microphone. If the line does move, press Stop, press Rewind, and then press Play to listen to your recording. If this works, but it does not work in your program, view the "Using the Microphone in Programs" section in this article.
  3. Still Cannot Record
If you cannot record a .wav file after you follow the steps in the previous section, there may be a problem with your microphone property settings. To check these settings:
  1. Double-click the Speaker icon on the taskbar, and then verify that the Microphone slider is at the top and that the Mute check box is not selected. If Mute is selected, click to clear the check box.
  2. Select Properties from the Options Menu. Select Recording and click OK. Verify that theSelected check box under Microphone is checked, and that the Microphone slider is at the top.
  3. Try recording a .wav file again.

How do I use altec lansing acs40 with a laptop?


Fairly easy really. You'll need to buy a jack to jack AUX cable. Single point for stereo needed and a headphone jack on the laptop.
The left hand and right hand speakers are slightly different. The right hand speaker only has a cord coming out the back of it and no AUX points.
The right hand speakers has a series of small jack points.
The first hole is the adaptor plug that has to be plugged into mains socket, then the 1st hole marked SPKR has to have a jack to jack cord going from that speaker to the other one. The last two holes marked "A" and "B" give you the option to put two jack to jack AUX sound cables in.
To get it into your laptop, you'll need ONE AUX jack to jack cable and fit it into the point at the back marked "B" and then through the headphone socket on your laptop. You will then have sound.
Make sure to remember to put the system on by the push button switch on the back of the left hand speaker. The speaker system also has another rotary switch on at the front of the speaker.
I've had these speakers for well over 10 years - brilliant sound quality and very durable. Hope it has helped you!

In-ear Headphones


Same problem, not a 'speaker problem" from blowing them out. Try just pushing the jack until you feel resistance and maually hold the jack. You should hear "almost all the music and vocals'. Validates the transducers are ok. Some sort of wiring problem shorting to mic.

The sound cuts off sometimes the wire seems to be the problem...


The wire leading into the headset is likely broken. Usually this occurs at the entrance point of the jack or at the point where the wire enters the speaker, if they are worh repairing, open the speaker and check the condition of the wire. this can be as easy as pulling gently on the wire either side of the suspected break. if the wire is firm then it is likely alright, if the wire stretches, the wire is broken inside and only the insolation is keeping it togehter.
if this doesn't work then you will need an ohm meter and ohm out the cable, remember to flex the cable at the suspected area with the meter on, if the meter drops off you found your break.

solder up the break or if in the case of the jack solder on a new jack.

Hope this is of some help.

No sound


I had this problem as well. I would get sound from headphones but unplugging them I had no sound from the builtin speaker.

When you plug in your headphones it moves a thin piece of metal in the jack which interrupts a connection (this is a good thing) so it can know when to disable the internal speaker. When you unplug your headphones the piece of metal moves back and it enables the internal speaker again.

I was able to fix this by taking apart my x51v and bending the piece of metal a little while the headphones are plugged in so that it will contact better when the headphones are unplugged,

To take your axim apart there are 4 screws on the back underneath the rubber grips that you need to take out. Then you can just slide a finger nail up and down each side to remove the front and back of the casing. The back you will need to swing out from the bottom since it hooks over the headphone jack. I unplugged the small wire that connects the front half of the case to the guts using a tiny flat screwdriver.

Inside on the back, there is a black plastic plate that is held on by 4 more screws. Take that off.

Now you can see the headphone jack. I plugged in my headphones and used a small flat screwdriver to push against the headphone jack on the bottom piece of metal on the right side with the axim face down. You can observe the piece I mean by looking at the side of the headphone jack when you plug and unplug headphones. It moves perhaps 1/32 of an inch.

Your goal is to bend the piece of metal closer to where it is when no headphones are plugged in. The only way to bend it properly is to do it when the headphones are in.

Sorry if this isn't clear enough. I'm not sure if this is a permanent fix or not but it's worked for me.

Toshiba A10 headphone jack problem


I think you are on the right track, if the headphone jack is worn and shorting out itll kill the speakers because it thinks headphones are plgged in, ebay would be a good start for parts, maybe even call toshiba and speak to their tech support.
