Question about Dell Latitude D810 PC Notebook
I have been extremely frusterated with Dell since I bought my Latitude D810 in 2005. While I was under warrenty I sent my computer to them three times asking them to fix the speakers on my labtop because they were not working at all. Each time they said the sound card is fine and that it was a "software" issue. This seems highly unlikely..... Here is my problem: Although the headphone jack works, the actual labtop speakers do not work. After a month of having this computer the speakers would short out sometimes. Oddly enough I found that after a few repetitions of plugging my headphones into the jack and then taking them out, that I could fix the problem. Unfortunately this method only lasted for a few months and now they dont work at all. For some reason they thought it was a software issue but regardless I'm no longer under warrenty. Since this computer is so old, I'd rather just buy a new labtop then spend any money fixing this one. But if you have any ideas I would really appreciate it. Thanks
It seems as though you might have a bad plug, There is a set of tabs that tell the laptop whether to use the speakers or the headphones. This switch may of locked into the headphones position. This is probably a case of where you would need to replace or repair the headphones port. check to make sure there is nothing in the port to block it. You can also try applying some light oil on the end of a headphones jack and placing it in and out several times to break free a possible stuck part. It also may be a case that the solder mark on the board has disconnected itself from the headphones jack and needs reseating. This would be a difficult fix but not at all impossible.
