HK Sounsticks lost sound

My son has been plugging his headphones into my Mac Mini via the headphone jack, after unplugging my Soundsticks. Recently, they've lost amplification of sound, getting progressively weaker until yesterday, finally, when I could hear nothing coming from them. Feels like the Soundsticks plug isn't seated as firmly in the jack compared to his headphones. I don't know what else would cause the problem. Is there a simple solution here, or did he short something out by plugging and unplugging the system while it was up?

I have an Integra DTR 20.3. Recently, I have been getting no sound from the speakers after removing the headphones from the headphone jack. Any ideas?


Usually the headphone jack has a contact that's "made" by the 'ring' section of the jack when you push in the plug, which bypasses the speaker circuit (that's what automatically silences the speakers when you plug in the headphones when there are no switches to turn the speakers on/off manually)... if the 'ring' strip got bent somehow so it's pressing against that contact all the time, it won't let the speakers' circuit come out of bypass. Look inside the jack with a flashlight... the sideways Vs that touch the 'ring' sections of the stereo headphone plug should be about in the middle of the opening... if they're pushed over too far it may require disassembly to bend them back to the proper position.

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.

You laptop may have sound prefs set to external speakers, or if there is a red light coming from the headphone jack. the mac thinks the headphones are still there.
Plug in and unplug the headphones an see if the red light goes out. may take a couple of times. Be gentle

Need to know how to use Apple Pro Speakers with Apple iMac Comp.


Does your iMac have a headphone jack, this is an output source that can be used to input to other amplified sources. I'm not sure what type of connector that is on your Pro speakers but if it has a universal jack then plug this in the headphone jack on your computer.

Leapster 2 has no sound


We got our daughter a Leapster2 for Chrstmas 08. One day the sound just stopped working. Called Leapfrog. They said to insert a cartridge, and turn the unit on. Plug headphones into the headphone jack. Then rotate the headphone plug-in 360 degrees,( It is easier to hold the heaphone plug-in and rotate the leapster2). Unplug the headphones and check to see if the sound works. Leapfrog said try it more than once, and if it does not work contact them,1-800-701-5327. We tried it and Hallelujah it worked!
