Welcome to FIXYA

first off for the cd/dvd problem goto control panel >system and maintenance >device manager and make sure you have up to date drivers and if yes then i would do a disk clean and a defrag of the computer as for the headphone jack i would do the same thing it might just need the drivers updated

i hope this helps out if not let me know have a good day :)

I have a Denon avr 391 and it worked fine for 4 years. Now I cannot get any sound out of it. Any idea what's going on. Help


could be a bad headphone jack. There was a commong problem with denon receivers around that time where the headphone jack had contacts that would short and make the unit act like there were headphone plugged in even when there wasn't. Sometimes you can clear the error by inserting a headphone plug and unplugging it a couple times. If it continues to happen, then you can get the headphone jack replaced.

Headphone jack not working


Do the speakers still work? If they do most probably the connector jack is broken, you can either send it to a service rep to replace (which costs a bomb and takes a better half of a year) or you could get a USB to Headphone/Microphone converter which costs about 5-8 Euros

I have an Acer Aspire Notebook. When I plug headphones into the audio jack there is no sound, however, the sound works fine from the notebook speakers. Can anyone help me?


Hi, May I know if have tried alternate headphones and if they are the same?Does the headphone work when wiggled within the port if yes then the issue is with the headphone jack being loose and you would need to send the computer for a repair if covered by the manufacturers warranty as the headphone jack needs to be replaced. Thank you for your time.

Marshall MG30DFX Headphone out volume is very low. On both channels, the the speaker output is fine, but when plugging in the headphones, you need to max the volumes.


bring an spray contact cleaner from radio shack near you and apply it in the place where you put your headphone jack and insert the jack in----out many times and check.---if it does not work try another headphone from good brand.

No voices come out, sound is good, with headphones and speakers


This sounds like a problem with your connection for your headphones. Your headphone jack on your notebook is stereo, which means that you need stereo headphones to make it work. If you look at the tip of your plug on your headphone cord, it will have 1 black ring, or 2 black rings. 1 black ring is mono, 2 black rings is stereo.

If you are using stereo headphones, and you're still having this problem, your headphone plug is not going all the way into the jack on your notebook. Press the plug all the way into the jack and the problem should be fixed.

If you physically cannot push the plug all the way into the jack, there may be a problem with the jack on your notebook that will need to be looked at.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Headphone jack broken speakers wont work


Yes, since the Headphone pin is stuck in the Jack, you are not getting audio from Speakers.

You should have noticed that connecting the headphones to the Jack will block the audio coming from the Speakers and the same is the current situation.

You can either try removing the blocked part using a Tweaser or get it repaired.

Laptop speakers stopped working


Hello fadesit, It sounds like the headphone socket is sticking/defective. When you insert the jack into the socket a contact is broken to disable the external speakers, when you remove the jack the connection is resumed. Due to the amount of work this will take and the possibility of causing other problems in the process I would check to see if the warranty is still in effect first. If not then the next thing to ask is do you have the tools, mechanical aptitude, patience and ability to risk damaging your laptop to do this yourself? If you want to go the do it yourself route let me know and I?ll post some disassembly instructions later tonight otherwise please don?t forget to rate the posting.
