Slot for memory cards not working

The usb ports and the places to plug in speakers, headphones, mic, all work but when I put the memory card from my camera in the slot it does not read it. The light does not come on or anything.

Why does my headphone audio get heard through my microphone?


Hi Matthew

I trust you are well.

Have you tried to plug your headset into the rear ports of your PC and not the front. If you have speakers in the rear and headset in the front try to swop the two around and see what happens.

Hope this helps

Kind regards

Headphones are working and mic is not working


The mics are of two types: electrostatic(cheap and modern) and old-stiled "dynamic". Old souncards were automatically switching to the mics type. Modern soundcards have to be switched manually.
In "sound properties" you first must check in that mic is turned on, mic volume in max and in all menues avd buttons find something like "mic amplifier boost"and turn it on. It's only non-standart mic tuning option in standart systems. All other problems in defects. Soundcards can be verifyed by so:
(with maximal speaker and mic volume) many times plug in and plug out any reacheable mics and headphones to the mic connection nest (hole), and listen(or recording) resulting scratches. If scratches or other related sounds are abscend(only noise), soundcard is bad. The mic problem may be in "jack left-right interconnection". This useful thing may hang some improper cards. Also that cards often cannot work with dynamic type. And they very sensitive to a manufacturer, and model of mic.
Problem may be also in configuring multimode speaker nests in 5_1(7.1) cards like REALTEC - the mic nest may be switched to the speaker output mode. Open Realtec's control center(in control panel or quicklaunch icon) and check in mic nest to "mic mode" or switch mode from 5.1 to stereo speakers.

No sound from headphones. Speakers work. Win7


Please clarify, Where is the Headphones connected? Front or back? if you tried it on the Front port without success, Plug in the speaker jack to the port where you did connect the Headphone and verify it's working or not. You can also try the headphone on the port where the speaker is connected.

Awaiting.

What are the slots on the front panel used for?


Those are card reader slots.

Various types of memory cards can be used.

A memory card, (Or can be stated as Flash Memory Card), takes the place of the old Floppy Disks, for one.

It is digital. There is no disk inside, just hardware electronic components.

Due to the size of trying to explain every type of memory card that is available, and the memory card itself, I would like to give you this link,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_card

Here it explains the basic format of a memory card.
You can click on the titles of the memory card/s, (in blue), to get a deeper explanation, of that particular memory card.

The specifications for your eMachines ET1810 Desktop PC, state that you have the following card reader slots for,

1.Compact Flash (Type I and II)
2.CF Microdrive
3.MultiMedia Card (MMC)
4.MMCmobile
5.MMCmicro
6.Reduced-Size MultiMedia Card (RS-MMC)
7.Secure Digital Card (SD)
8.miniSD Card
9.xD-Picture Card
10.Memory Stick
11.Memory Stick PRO
12.Memory Stick PRO Duo
13.Memory Stick Micro (M2)

Look above each slot for an abbreviation.
For example on my computer,

I have one card reader slot that is approximately 1 inch wide.
It looks like a T that is stretched out.
It has SD/MMC/SM/MS/MS-PRO, above it.

This means that the card reader slot will support, (Use),
[In order as printed above],

1.SD Card - Secure Digital Card
2.MultiMedia Card.
3.Smart Media card
4.Memory Stick
5.Memory Stick Pro

I have one more card reader slot. It has CF-Microdrive above it. A wider slot than the above, and looks like a upside down stretched out T.

This means of course that it uses, (Supports), a Compact Flash Microdrive card

I've tried to explain the various card reader slots, on your computer's front panel, without being too technical, or being offensive in nature.

If you want, I can explain as technical as you wish, or simplify my solution more.

This is the Specifications page for your eMachines ET1810,

http://support.gateway.com/emachines/desktop/2009/emachines/et/et1810/ET1810sp2.shtml

Scroll down, and look to the right of the heading - Card Reader.
These are the cards your computer supports, (Uses)

Looking at the main support page for your eMachines, it looks as though you have four card reader slots.
Three grouped together on the left side, and two in the middle.

The two slots to the far right are USB ports, with probably a headphone jack port, and a microphone port to the right of them.

This page gives a little more detail, as to what your card reader slots support,

Headphones will not work but speakers will.


Plug the headphones directly into the speaker port on the sound card, check for a mute button on the headphones. try another set of headphones to double check wether the first set is working.

Headphones with mic / external speakers


Does your computer have front audio ports? If so, you can just plug it in there. Otherwise you need a single male 2 dual female converter to plug into the speaker port.

Siemens fujitsu scalo p.....can't get my 2.1 speakers to work


Hi There Try this, CONNECTION Check your connections on Rear part of your PC. Lime is for Sound Out usually a speaker, Pink is for Mic, Blue for Audio Input. VOLUME Try Adjusting the vlume on your PC first. Check the volume on the Headphone too if there is one. CLEANING Using a dump clothe. Wipe the plugs with a twisting motion. WIRELESS\BLUETOOTH Check your battery if it is drained. Try replacing them with a new one or charge them if they are rechargables. If all fails then You may have a Sound Card problem. Using a spare Speaker or Headphone check it if it works. If its not then its Defective and needs replacement. If its working then your Speakers or Headphones are defective. Try fixing them by cleaning or checking the Continuity of its cables using a analog Multi tester. Hope This helps ======================= If you are having trouble with Newly bought items then return them and demand a replacement or a refund! You may have purchased a reconditioned\repaired\factory defect product.
