You generally need a 5.1 (or more) sound output from your computer but since that is a laptop I doubt its 5.1(it should be stereo), hence it will work in stereo mode even if you connect it to a splitter. However the good thing is that it will WORK!

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.

Headphone pluged in does not cut off speaker in toshiba laptop


Headphone socket is possibly faulty or you are plugged into the mic socket or there is a separate volume control to drive the speakers or the driver is not installed correctly.

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.

I can't get my speakers to work. I have to use headphones to hear sound. Can you help me to know how to get my speakers working Thanks


Hmm, sounds like either the speaker/speaker cable/speaker connector) developed a problem (not very likely as the parts are rather solid) or the headphone socket connector is damaged or is beginning to lose contact with the motherboard. If it's just a matter of the socket desoldering itself from the motherboard then the solution is relatively easy - you need to re-solder the socket. This involves stripping the laptop as you would need to get to the bottom of the motherboard. 600E is relatively easy to dismantle (most thinkpads are :)
Also, the headphone socket has small "switch" where if a headphone jack is inserted, it disconnects the internal speakers. In some cases the "switch" gets stuck in that position and you end up with speakers disconnected regardless of whether the jack is in or not. In any case, it's a pain to fix and involves either replacing the socket or stripping the socket.
Well-good luck :)
Hope this helps.

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.

Sound still appear at speaker even when headphone was installed


Hello Again,

When you Plug in HeadPhones into the Laptop the Sound Playing should automatically Bi-Pass the Speakers and go Straight to the Headphones

-Unless there is a Faulty Input for the Speaker/ Headphone, Try Pushing in the Headphones More to see if the Speakers Turn Off

Hope this Works --P3NGYJ03

Connection to Laptop


Since the majority of laptops do not have multiple sound outputs you will need to buy a couple of headphone splitters. Plug the first Y splitter into the laptop headphone port and plug one of the input cables going to the speakers in one arm of the Y. Next, plug another Y splitter in the remaining arm of the first Y. This will provide you with the other two inputs that you need. Plug the remaining speaker cables into the other Y arms. From there it is simply controlling the speakers using the laptop volume and/or the speakers volume. You will not have fader control on a 3.1 or 5.1 speaker system but it will give you what you are looking for. I have this same configuration at my office using an IBM laptop and a 5.1 surround sound system. Good luck. JC
