Headphone jack is broken INSIDE the port and is overriding the speakers. Can I override this override?


Or instead of having to open up your computer and messing with the mobo. Just use the control panel in to disable the headphone jack.

Sound from headphones on computer terrible


b> WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards You will need to open up your computer to check the back of the input headphones plug look for dusty and bad soldering or loose connections. b> Computer Headphone Jack Has Fuzzy Noise b> When building a computer system, making headphone and microphone jacks are one area where computer manufacturers use the lowest-cost parts. When it comes to computer audio, no perceivable difference in sound quality exists between that of ordinary parts and higher quality ones. Very low-quality parts, or parts that are installed with sub-par wiring, however, can lead to fuzzy sounds and static on headphones.

Symptoms and Component Isolation Start the diagnosis by using different headphones in the jack. If the fuzzy noise or static problem persists over multiple headphones, even if it doesn't happen with all of them, it's probably within the jack on the computer. This is also probably the case if the static increases when you do other things on the computer, like dragging windows around on screen with your mouse, then stops when you stop dragging windows. Causes b> The leading cause of headphone jack static is electromagnetic interference from other components in the computer's case. When electrical devices draw current, they also generate a magnetic field. Overlapping magnetic fields cause static. To combat this effect, the manufacturer provides for the components on motherboards to be grounded - the wiring from the microphone jack will have an extra lead that goes directly to a grounding agent. When your computer headphone jack has a fuzzy sound, or static, the ultimate cause is usually bad grounding on the wiring that the jack plugs into. Rewiring The Jack b> If you're comfortable with a soldering iron, and know enough about electronics and wiring, you can remove the wire to your microphone jack and put in one with heavier shielding, or a better ground. If you're not comfortable with this, a computer repair shop may be willing to tackle this for you; the actual cost in labor is about an hour to an hour and a half of labor time. It may be less if the shop technician is familiar with this sort of repair, as opposed to only knowing how to swap cards on the motherboard. Using Different Ports for Audio Cheaper alternatives exist than rewiring the headphone jack on your motherboard. One of them is to put in a dedicated sound card - which will cost $15 or so, and you may have a compatible one from an old computer that can be scavenged. This will require researching the make and manufacturer of the card to download compatible drivers off the internet, and then installing them on your computer. If you have an unused USB port, the easiest solution is a pair of USB headphones. This has the advantage of working with future hardware as well.

I want to fit my headphone wire to the mic. wire


Check for 2 sockets. If your desktop is reasonably new, look for a socket with a Green ring around it or a socket within a green square. That is your headphones socket. Look likewise for a Rose colored one. That is your Microphone socket. At times you may also see the picture of an old fashioned Microphone and a headphone close to the respective sockets. If your computer is pretty old, get hold of a good torch light and look in the back. You may find a circle or a diamond shape with an arrow going in and an arrow going out which are the mic and audio out respectively. This type is pretty much rare now a days.

Broken headphone jack


you should be able to get it out from the inside on the card. Do you have a sound card or is your sound on the motherboard?

Headphone jack broke off inside


yes, you could easily open the computer and physically remove the wires from the mother board for the front audio jack. These are pin headers. Most all the time they are labeled.

The rear audio should already be working from the green jack. If not, then perhaps you have the RealTek Audio chipset and software. The realtek audio software generally has a orange speaker icon in the system tray. You can double click to open it, go to the Audio I/O tab and then click the little wrench icon. It will open the connector setting. On the connector settings screen is a checkbox. Disable front panel jack detection. Uncheck that, also a check box for Mute rear panel output when fron headphone plugged in, UNCHECK this. That should do it.

If you want to try further to remove the broken jack make sure the machine is off, use a very tiny needle nose pliers (electronic type) you should be able to pull it out.

What kind of computer do you have? You could also possibly remove the jack assembly from the inside, so you can get a better view for the extraction of the plug.
