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?

    My friend ... I answered the question that you asked ... now you are changing the question.

    As I understand it ... you have your speaker system plugged into your computer and you CAN listen to the signal when using headphones. However, even though you can hear with the headphones, when you disconnect, there is no signal getting to the speakers in the speaker system.

    If there is a signal AT the speaker outlet on your speaker (as evidenced by your hearing the sound from your headphone), there likely is a fault with the internal switch not reconnecting after you disconnect the plug.

    Normally, this will be a stereo phone plug of some size (a switched common leg, a right side and a left side connector corresponding to the Tip, ring and barrel connection. If the switch on the 'common' leg doesnt close when you unplug, signal cannot pass to run your speakers.

    IF you can get the speaker case open, you might be able to adjust this switch or at least test it (short out the common leg). You may be able to replace the jack ... find a replacement at Radio Shack. If you are not skilled at soldering and have the proper tools (use ONLY rosin core) ... maybe you should take this unit to a electronic repair shop for repair.

    I hope I have answered your question.

    Thanks for the feedback and thanks for your your interest in

The speakers no long produce sound after using the headphone jack,,disconnected jack , still no sound

When you plug in the headphones, the jack itself routes the signal away from the speakers. When you unplug the headphones, the jack has contacts that close again, routing signal to the speakers. If the jack contacts are dirty, they won't close correctly. I suspect were you to clean the contacts, you'd solve the problem.

I suspect that the loud speaker in the laptop may be faulty. Plug headphones in and test it.
If the sound is distorted as well there is a possibility of a motherboard fault.

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).

Headphone Jack Problem

Go to the icon tray and double click the speaker icon. Have a look in the Advanced controls to see if you have taken the mute off the pc speaker. There might also be an option to play sound on the pc speaker simultaneously with the headphones. If so, uncheck the dual play box so the sound will not play through the pc speaker when you have the headphones plugged in.

Sound is working but internal speaker is not working

Connecting headphones to the system will disabled the internal speakers until the headphone jack is disconnected, at which such time the internal speakers should function again.

If you disconnect the headphones and the internal speakers are not re-activated, then there may be damaged to the microswitch in the jack. (Try rebooting after the headphones are disconnected too)

Sound still appear at speaker even when headphone was installed

Hello Again,

When you Plug in HeadPhones into the Laptop the Sound Playing should automatically Bi-Pass the Speakers and go Straight to the Headphones

-Unless there is a Faulty Input for the Speaker/ Headphone, Try Pushing in the Headphones More to see if the Speakers Turn Off

Hope this Works --P3NGYJ03

Low sound in headphone

I would say it is because the unit does not have a built in amplifier. The speakers are powered PC speakers of studio monitors I am guessing. Try plugging the headphones into the headphone jack of the speakers if they have a headphone jack or try a set of powered headphones out of the Edirol and see if it helps.

That should remedy the problem.
