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.

Headphone jacks has static


Typically, static is caused by a dirty connection, you need to clean the jack, completely. If you are not able to do that, sometimes you can improve the situation by plugging and unplugging, and twisting the headphone jack, maybe 50 times or so....If the static comes after unplugging, the jack would need to be opened up and the contact points cleaned.

Blippy Sound


Sounds like the cords that are going into the PC/system have static. Remove the cords from the speakers and simply put your finger around the jacks to remove static. Push the cords and the jacks back in and switch on the speakers. Then twist the volume control, turning it up loud and then low, then loud and low again. That should cure the problem as it removes static that gets built up over time. Either that or your speakers could well be damaged.

Car audio and mp3 player


Turn volume up all the way on goGear, then turn volume up on your car stereo.

Static is caused by the headphone moving around in the jack - find a place where the GoGear can sit relatively still w/o shuffling, etc.
