Headphone jack broken speakers wont work

I recently tripped over a cord plugged into one of the headphone jacks on the front of my computer. The plastic kinda bent up a little and the actual jack now seems to be jammed inside. This itself isnt a huge problem, as there is a second headphone jack that still works just fine. Only problem is the laptop speakers don't work now. I think the computer thinks there is still something in that jack, so it won't play through the speakers. Is there any way to tell it to ignore that jack, which I think would fix the problem, or do I need to get this repaired physically?

I had the same problem and resolved this by putting a tiny amount of "super glue" on the end of the headphone cable/pin that came away from the broken part and putting it back into the socket/jack and firmly holding it for one minute. I then left it over night to dry.
The next day I firmly grasped the headphone pin and steadily pulled it from the computer making sure it came out straight.
The glue had dried enough to allow the broken part to remain connected for the removal. I then threw out the headphones.

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.

My dell latitude d510 internal spk is ready but output headfone jek not working


these are fairly passive in that if a headphone or earpiece is plugged in, they switch the output from the internal speaker to the external speaker. So, it's usually one of a few problems.
  • The jack is mucked up, and needs replaced.
  • The headphone plug wires have a broken connection
  • The headphone needs power to amplify, and that's not working.
If trying another headphone or earpiece you know is working doesn't work, it's the jack itself. They can only handle so many uses before they either fail closed, or open or completely. Depending on which one, either:
  • neither speakers nor headphones work.
  • only speakers work
  • only headphones work
Replacement necessitates opening the case and replacing the jack. For that, there's no help.

Headphone jack does not work


The headphone jack on the computer connects to the sound card, a hardware device that controls audio input and output on the PC. The card contains a digital-to-analog converter that converts analog audio into digital signals and visa-versa. The performance of the headphone jack, therefore, depends on how well the sound card functions; if the card doesn't work, then the headphones connected to the PC won't output sound. Reconfiguring the audio settings will often fix problems with audio output on the headphone jack, but if the former fails to resolve the issue, replacing the sound card in its entirety is sometimes the only means of repair.
Click "Start." Enter "sound" into the search box. Select "Sound" from beneath Control Panel. Double-click "Headphones." If no "Headphones" option is available, double-click "Speakers." Click "Properties" on the General tab. Check the Device Status field for errors. Look up the message on Microsoft Support for more assistance, if applicable. Close the window if the Device Status field reads "This Device Is Working Properly." Go to the "Levels" tab. Click the speaker button to unmute the volume if the icon contains a red circle-backslash symbol. Drag the top slider to the right to increase the headphone volume. Go to the "Enhancements" tab. Check "Disable all Sound Effects." Go to Applications, and then clear "Allow Applications to Take Exclusive Control of This Device." Click "OK" to close Headphones Properties or Speakers Properties. Test the audio. If the headphones fail to output sound, unplug the headphones from the computer. Reconnect the headphones to the PC. Headphone jacks are color-coded lime green on most PCs. Look for the headphones symbol if the jacks are not color-coded. Plug the headphones into the line-out port on the back of the computer if the headphone jack on the front of the PC fails to work, or visa-versa. Test the headphones. If headphones still won't emit sound, the sound card most likely requires replacement. b> Replacing the Sound Card b> Shut down the computer. Remove the power cord from the back of the PC. Disconnect the keyboard, mouse, monitor and all other peripheral devices. Loosen the screws found on the back of the case, then slide the cover panel off of the case. Touch the chassis to protect the hardware from electrostatic discharge, or ESD. Set the computer on its side. Locate the sound card found on the opposite of the audio jacks and loosen the screw that secures the card to the computer. If no expansion card is located opposite the jacks, the computer uses an integrated sound card which can't be removed. Remove the new audio card from its protective packaging. Line up the card with an available expansion slot on the motherboard, then push the card down into the slot to install the new audio jacks. Screw the card to the computer case. Reassemble the computer. Turn on the PC. Boot in to Windows and insert the CD that came with the new expansion card. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the sound card software to the computer. Plug the headphones into the new line-out jack. Hope this helps.

My Acer Aspire 7551 headphone jack is broken


You just answered your own question. Same here, my jack only plays one channel (or vocals as you said), but when I push down on it or twist the male end of the headphone as it's plugged in, I can rig it. It's just shorted man, you need a new one. My issue happened when my friend tripped over the cord, while plugged into desktop speakers and it jerked it out. I am just having a serious issue finding any to order online so my local PC Repair shop can put it in.

Dell 610 lptop - haedphone not working,


First try uninstalling the sound drivers from the device manager, then reboot. It will find and reinstall them, then check Dell's support site for updated sound drivers. If you find updated drivers you will need to use the update button for the device in the device manager. If this doesn't work, then it may be a faulty headphone jack. The jack should override the speakers when the headphones are plugged into it. If you can still hear the speakers with the headphones plugged in then the jack is faulty and needs replaced. If the jack does override the speakers or if you get some static then it could be that the jack has come loose or has a loose or broken wire. The only other thing is try a different set of headphones, sometimes laptops get picky and one set will work and yet another set may not.
