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.

You could try FN+F8 or look on or around the keyboard to find the sound key

Easynote r1004 d.c. input socket broken

You really have to completely remove the motherboard from the case to do this. If you cannot find the exact replacement jack (not called socket in parts catalogues) you can just run the wires out of the case to whatever jack that will accomodate your adaptor. If you do not have the remove/replace procedures and still want to tackle this then make sure that you keep track of where EACH screw goes as they do vary in size/threads and pay careful attention to the ribbon connectors that connect to the keyboard, display and touchpad. The bottom of the laptop has little icons that relate to what the screw releases (like a keyboard icon) and even the screw designations molded into the bottom case. If this is a maiden voyage into laptop repair then research or you will learn the hard way. An ESD strap is essential here and all drives/battery/PC modules removed. Good luck. ~Steve

External sound device not working

Hi, What you probably need then is a 6 to 4 firewire converter (IEEE-1394). Should you want to build your own, this site offers the pinout connections > Should you want to purchase a ready made converter/adapter, it is available at or google for "firewire 6 to 4 cable converter" Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
