Could be that whatever they used to hold that socket in place has come loose.
Not much you can do with it, aside from taking it back or sending it in to get repaired.
You could try to open it and see where it's loose.
Tho that would most likely void what warranty you may still have on the device.

I have a ypg535 and headphones work but no sound from keyboard. I did unplug the headphones.


If you have sound through the headphones but not the internal speakers then assuming there is nothing stuck in the socket, headphone adaptor, broken plug etc then it would point to the amplifier section of the keyboard having failed. Sound via the hip socket is normally from the pre amp stage. Is there any slight hissing from speakers? If so this reinforces amplifier theory as the speakers are obviously connected.

please state model number of the keyboard and answers to the above .

regards

What can I buy to extend the headphone socket.my telly is hung on a wall.and the headphone socket is about 6 inches in from the side of the telly.and being an invalid.this is very awkwardi need to ext


Sorry, but you are asking the impossible thing.
Headphone sockets are made, to mute the main sound on every device they are on, when something is inserted.
You can't change that by plugging in anything else. The only way around is a tech who opens the TV, and does a modification internal. He / she must know what to be done, or else the TV will be damaged. I think I could manage it, but Sorry I don't do house calls. Only from my home behind the computer.

How can I fix my aspire 5349-2804 headphone port?


Power output on a headphone socket is not great - depends on the headphone and speaker resistance - have you tried a cheap pair of in ear headphones to see if it is the headphone socket.

Headphone socket does sometimes break like the power socket its one of the most common problems on a laptop.

If so its not difficult to find a new headphone socket or even re-solder the old one - it may be a dry joint!

Are you getting sound through the laptop speakers for a start.
The headphone socket should interrupt the main speakers automatically so there is no setting in sounds and devices in windows that would cause your problem.

You might have an issue with the headphone socket where the jack goes---when jack goes in it moves a leaf in the socket to turn off the speakers====try to slightly wiggle the jack in and out===the socket may be cleaned with electronic cleaner.

My headphones will work but my desktop speakers will not why?


If your speakers work fine when plugged into the headphones socket on the front of the system, then there is no fault with them.
If the sound through the speakers is very low when plugged into the rear panel socket, that would suggest that you may be plugged into the line out socket rather than the speaker socket and that there is a mismatch of the impedence between the socket and speakers.
If you have three audio sockets on the rear panel, try the speakers in the second output socket (but not in the microphone socket) and see if it makes a difference.
You could try the same test using the headphones - do you still get good sound levels with the headphones when plugged in to the rear panel socket?
If neither the speakers nor headphones give good sound when plugged in to the rear panel, then you may have a problem with either the sound card if the sockets are on a separate PCI card, or with a poor connection on the cable to the socket header bracket from the motherboard pins for audio for integrated adapters.

Computer crashed,i changed the hard drive and now i have no sound


Check that they are plugged into the Green socket. Open Volume control from the taskbar and check that Wave and Volume controls are turned up. If still nothing, check the speakers by plugging headphones in in place of them. Hope this helps. :)

I have a Hohner amp that has sound coming from earphones when I plug them into the headphone jack, but there's no sound coming out of the speaker itself when the earphones are unplugged. How do I fix that?


the headphone socket acts as a switch for main audio and headphone line. either u have a defective socket or the power amp is defective. headphone line is driven by a preamp, which is working - if power amp is defective- headphone works but power amp fails. try changing the headphone socket first.

Acer Aspire 1406 no sound issue


So sometimes laptops play up when the headphone socket gets a bit worn. If you wiggle a headphone jack in the socket (put it in at different angles, and rub around) sometimes the sound will come back.

There are two prongs that "detect" the headphones, and cut the speakers... and if they don't "un-contact" when the headphones are removed, the speakers stay off.

You'd need someone to solder a new headphone socket on the mainboard to properly fix it, but if you wiggle and get the speakers back, they should stay back until you use the headphone socket again.
