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.

Can i connect juster speakers 675 to my dell laptop?


Plug the power transformer into the bottom jack on the back of the right-channel speaker. This is the speaker with the on/off knob on the front. 2 Plug the audio cable attached to the left-channel speaker into the audio jack on the back of the right-channel speaker. The jack is immediately above the jack for the power cord. 3 Plug the audio jack attached to the back of the right-channel speaker into the headphone jack on a laptop computer (usually located along the left edge), or to the audio output jack on the back of a desktop PC. 4 Plug the speaker transformer into a surge protector and the surge protector into a wall outlet. 5 Turn the on-off and volume control knob clockwise on the front of the right-channel Inspiron speaker to activate the stereo speakers and adjust the volume.

How do I use altec lansing acs40 with a laptop?


Fairly easy really. You'll need to buy a jack to jack AUX cable. Single point for stereo needed and a headphone jack on the laptop.
The left hand and right hand speakers are slightly different. The right hand speaker only has a cord coming out the back of it and no AUX points.
The right hand speakers has a series of small jack points.
The first hole is the adaptor plug that has to be plugged into mains socket, then the 1st hole marked SPKR has to have a jack to jack cord going from that speaker to the other one. The last two holes marked "A" and "B" give you the option to put two jack to jack AUX sound cables in.
To get it into your laptop, you'll need ONE AUX jack to jack cable and fit it into the point at the back marked "B" and then through the headphone socket on your laptop. You will then have sound.
Make sure to remember to put the system on by the push button switch on the back of the left hand speaker. The speaker system also has another rotary switch on at the front of the speaker.
I've had these speakers for well over 10 years - brilliant sound quality and very durable. Hope it has helped you!

How do I plug my BA745 Boston speakers into a MAC desktop with one headphone outlet in the back?


I have the same speakers. It should have two plugs, one green and one pink. the pink plug is for a microphone. On the side of the speaker with the control knobs, you will find a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Unless you plan to plug a microphone into the pink microphone jack on the side of the speaker, you don't need to plug in the pink plug that goes to the PC. This is basically a microphone extension cord that runs through the speaker cord. That's all the pink plug is for. The green plug, on the other hand, is for your audio out. take the green plug and plug it into your computer's head phone outlet and you're good to go. You can use the speakers with any device that has a headphone jack. Just make sure you use the green plug, not the pink plug.

Speakers work in the front headphone jack on my Dell PC, but not in the audio jacks in the back of the computer


I think most computers do not have headphones in the rear, just LINE OUT, which has no enough volume to be used for headphones.

Headphones and speakers are in mono


Sounds like the jack on the computer is worn, dirty or bent therefore not making good contact with the plugs. The solution is to replace the jack, which is labor intensive- mostly to get to it inside the case and then you need the part (jack) Soldering may be necessary.

Speakers not working-- can only hear using headphones w/computer


unplug your headphones, and plug the speaker cord into that jack. its possible that the speakers you are using require power either by a cord or batteries and without them, it wont play sound. also, possible, your speakers are bad.

Soundcard problem on D530 SFF


Sounds like the audio return wires aren't connected. On the motherboard, there is a sound jack on the back left side of the mobo. The jacks from the front audio panel connects to it. Both the Left and Right channel have an out and an in connector. These send the signal to the headphone jack on the front panel and return the signal to the rear output jack if a headphone is not connected. Look for looe or broken wires. The other spot to check is the front headphone jack. If a headphone plug was pulled out or pulled sideways, it could break the solder joint on the PCB panel or break the shunt feeding the singal to the rear jacks. Hope this helps.

No sound output from rear speaker jack


Plugging headphones into the computer will disable sound output from the sound card by design.
