Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a faulty headphone jack. Sound fades and also drops out. I patch thru my home stereo from the headphone jack. A fairly normal practice from what I've seen. Although, I accidentally pulled the plug out of the jack while the volume was still up thru my stereo amp. Before reducing the volume at the amp,OOPS, I reinserted the patch line plug, I know. OOPS!! I saw a blue spark just before insertion. At that point, I lost the left channel and volume. Your thoughts.

Sorry but I need a clarification. The problem is at the "Toshiba sound card" as the category says or at your amplifier. I'm trying not in order to punish you for wrong category but in order to clear the things in my mind.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Is the headphone jack mono or stereo?


Stereo or mono headjack should not make a difference in the quality of the sound. The issue you have is with your head phones.

Bet that if you plug them into another apparatus they will sound lousy also. If they sound good, then the problem lies with the output stages of what ever you were plugging them into initially.

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.

Sony walkman nwze365 poor sound quality when plugged into home stereo or portable player


Maybe you are using the headphone jack on your Walkman to connect to your home stereo. Not good. I prefer a LINE OUT connector and for $130 you would expect to find one. My experience has been that some have it, some don't.

When I plug in a headphone from the jack in the back the sound still comes out the speakers not the headpone. Element fxl-1910


Is your Headphones ok - Have you tried them on something else?

Is the plug on the headphones of the correct type and size?

If you mute the TV or turn down the volume - does this affect the headphone volume?

Also, Do you get sound out of the Headphones at the same time as the speakers?

If the above checks out to be OK - You may have a faulty Headphone socket in the TV.

Normally when you push headphones into a TV it usually pushes a piece of Metal in the head phone socket that disengages the speakers
The socket can go faulty

I want to play normal tv sound thru the surround sound, but do not know what cables to use? i have an LG 460 tv, and a sanyo dc-ht818, it doesnt seem to have TOSLINK or HDMI inputs, so what can i use?


The Sanyo has stereo analog LINE INPUT jacks. Run two RCA audio cables from the TV to these jacks and select this LINE INPUT FUNCTION on the Sanyo. If the TV has no analog audio output jacks you can even use the headphone output by using a 3.5mm adapter to RCA audio connectors.

Can i hook up an ipod to play on it?


Yes. You need a 1/8" stereo male to dual RCA patch cord (fairly easy to find in most audio stores) and put the 1/8" into the ipod's headphone jack, and the RCA's into the Kenwood's tape or AUX inputs.

Model ELCHW402 40" LCD


The TV has two audio out options: a digital audio out (coaxial) and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Both of these are just above the antenna in connector. The headphone jack is the top one.

For a sound system that uses RCA stereo plugs, get a 3.5 mm (M) to 2 red/white RCA F adapter at the headphone jack and use an RCA audio cable from the adapter to the sound system. Alternatively, you can use a 3.5 mm audio patch cable from the headphone jack and the 3.5 mm (F) to 2 RCA (M) adapter at the sound system. The TV speakers will probably be turned off automatically with this connection.

If your sound system has digital audio, get the digital audio cable. You will need to enter the menus to make this audio output active. See the Audio menu > SPDIF Type (PCM, Dolby or Auto).

I hope this helps.

After plugging in my headset, there is no sound coming thru but I can still the microphone to talk and others can hear me. I recently updated my graphics card drivers.


If you mean you pluged your headphones into your stereo jack and the stereo has no more sound the switch in the stereo jack may be stuck. If you can plug the headphones in still and get sound out of them then this is most likely the problem.
If thats not what you meant then please clarify your question with more details.
I hope this helps you,

I am trying to run the sound from my Packard Bell imedia x4520 computer through my Hifi amp. I think I have followed all the links on the PC regarding setting up the realtek sound for setting up external...


It sounds like the 3.5 plug is mono or the plug is not completely inserted in the computer jack (push it in until you do not see any more of the contacts). I connected one of my computers to my stereo receiver and used a splitter so I could use both my computer speakers and the stereo without disconnecting any cables. First make sure your 3.5 jack looks like the one in the link with three contacts and two insulators (the black plastic piece).
http://www.cablestogo.com/product.asp?cat_id=2009&sku=40421#
If you see only one insulator and two contacts it is mono and the second channel will be shorted out.
I would recommend using the Front Line Out which is a pre amp output into your auxiliary input on your home amplifier. If you use the headphone jack you may have clipping of the signal causing distortion.
Use the cable similar to the one in the link below or you can purchase one at Lowes or Target.
http://www.cablestogo.com/product.asp?cat_id=2009&sku=40427#
Plug the splitter male jack into the into the computer Front Line Out and the computer speakers into one female jack.
Second connect an 3.5mm to RCA stereo patch cord to the other female jack of the splitter. If you have a 3.5mm to RCA mono purchase one similar to the link below.

Powerpoint 2007 get sound from one monitor to another


Some monitors have speakers built-in, some don't. The sound never travels through the 15pin d-type VGA connector. If the monitor has sound, there will be a small 1/8 inch stereo jack in the back or bottom of the monitor. Most all laptops have a headphone output jack (again 1/8 inch stereo) which is perfect for patching to external amplified speakers or to a monitor with speakers built-in. This patch cable can be purchased at Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc etc.
