Question about Onkyo TX-8511 Receiver

Headphone jack does not work

I have tried everything but nothing has any effect. IF I plug in a headphone jack there is no effect. Sound continues through the speakers. Pressing the speaker selection buttons has no effect either. I was told by best buy that I had to take it back to the store where I purchased the unit. That is not realistic considering the location of the store. Can you tell me how to solve this problem?

You can take it to any store, the sales rep didnt know what he is talking about.

Is there a set of buttons that say " Speakers A-B " or something similar?

My brother has one that you had to turn off the main speaker and the sound will come only out of the microphone jack.

Its usually two little button side by side. It may be different on yours.

Also, check the manual and see if it says anything about you having to change anything to switch it over to Earphones.

Your headphone jack is corrupted in internal, cause when you put your headphone jack in internal you activate the switch to switch speakers to headphone and this switch is out of order.
you have to go to a specialist to replace your headphone jack on your amplifier. sorry for this bad news. ;)

I have a Marshall MG100HDFX 100-Watt Amplifier half stack (solid state) and I now am not getting ANY sound out of the amp. I changed the fuse and the power module behind the fan, and still no sound,...


plug headphone in the effects send jack...If you get somme sound (won't be too loud) there, that means preamp sections are probably ok. Drive a signal into the effects return jack... If power amp responds, it is OK... If both these are OK, then suspect the switch contacts on these two jacks that forward the preamp to the power amp when effects unit is NOT plugged in.
These contacts are a chronic problem.

Marshall MG50 DFX amp line out/headphones not working


Contrary to what's posted above, the Marshall MG series does not pass the speaker power output through the headphone jack, and inserting the headphones into the jack does not disable the speaker. The headphone amp is a separate circuit and it's input is taken before the master volume. So Jan's post is exactly right. Turn off the master volume and turn up all the other gain/volumes as high as they will go. The other issue is that the headphone jack's output does not drive low efficiency headphones well, so you need some headphones similar to Sony's MDR-V700s to hear it well. Earbuds just don't cut it.

No sound coming from headphones using my dj mixer. however through speakers sounds fine. Im using 2 pioneer cdj 1000 mk3 and a djm 800. The sound works perfectly through speakers. how ever nothing through...


hii there, pls try to use another headphone on your mixer, if you get the same problem. It means your headphone have no problem. Problem is with the the jack of your mixture. Open your mixture and check the jack properly attached internal.

My computer speakers just went silent in the middle of a song


Do the speakers have power? Check the fuse.

Where are you plugging your headphones?
Where are the speakers connected? Is it the same jack as the headphones?

Have you tried plugging the speakers into the headphone jack vs the soundcard?

Marantz SR7500 headphone jack stopped working


There is a contact inside the jack that is closed when the plug is inserted. Apparently this is no longer happening. This should be an easy repair for a qualified technician.

New headphones


Try plugging them into the jacks on the back of the PC case. Make sure you connect the right connector to the right jack. If this works, then there is a problem with the front jacks. Sometimes they are left unattached when the PC is assembled.

Also, check in control panel under sounds and make sure you have a sound scheme selected. If it says no sound scheme, select one, the click NO if Save sound scheme prompt comes up.

No sound output from rear speaker jack


Plugging headphones into the computer will disable sound output from the sound card by design.
