Hi twelvetwelve

Are you able to get access to the rear of the socket and use a small screwdriver to push out the parts of the plug that have come adrift inside the socket? You may have to actually remove the socket from its PCB to get access. If you cannot remove the offending parts, then you may have to replace the socket. There is not alot more that you can do unfortunatly.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

I have heard of this problem before. If the red light is always on the headphone jack might think there is something still in place. You could try blowing any dust out with a can of air before you perform and archive and install.

Why does my lowrey organ not make a sound after I have switched it on?


This is a generic answer for this kind of question.
When there is no sound
Check the obvious.
Is there a light on the organ indicating it is on?
  • Plug it in to a known working wall socket, switch on at the wall
  • Switch on at the organ, check light
  • Very old keyboards need a voice to be selected!!
  • Turn master volume up
  • Turn any other volumes up
  • i.e. lower manual volume
  • upper manual volume
  • swell pedals down
Sometimes a sustain pedal plugged into a volume pedal socket will mute the output, check this.
Headphones out, most headphones will turn speakers off, sometimes the headphone switch can be dodgy, work the headphone plug in an out a few times
There maybe a switch that turns off the speakers, look near the output sockets
Software volumes up, check display, if any.
MIDI instruments, check local control is ON
Still no sound?
Can you hear anything from the speakers?
Hiss or hum usually means the speaker is ok
Total silence may indicate speaker failure, but only if there is one speaker, as in older home organs, or smaller keyboards
Try headphones next, TURN Down master volume first just in case!
If there is some sound, very quiet and gross distortion then possible power amplifier failure.
If your instrument has any kind of line out as well as a headphone jack, try these.
The line output will likely be a pair of phono sockets,like you have on HiFi equipment, 1/4 inch, 6.35mm jacks, like the bigger headphone connector, a 3.5mm socket like the smaller headphone connector, or even a DIN connector on older equipment.
Connect these to the aux (or Line or CD) input on your HiFi, guitar amp or similar. (some times these outputs will drive headphones, usually you will only hear anything in the left side). If this works then it is very likely the power amplifier.
Further tests on MIDI equipped keyboards would be to see if the MIDI does anything.
If MIDI out works and there is no sound, and MIDI in makes a sound this points to local being off, buried somewhere in the menu will be local on or off, make sure it is on.
If MIDI out doesn't work then the failure is likely to be internal power supply or something else critical (not nnecessarily major).
Power amplifier failures in newer, low power, keyboards are often the power amplifier chips (i.c,s), older amplifiers may have just blown their fuses but one or more output transistors may have failed.
Cost of repair will be down to the time it takes to get to the fault, taking these to bits and putting them back can take a lot longer than the repair.!
Hope this helps, Chris the Fader

How do I get better sound with my roku tv


The speakers on a lot of TVs are not very good quality and seem to rely on owners providing their own audio solution. You have a couple of options if the TV speakers are not up to expectations.
1. Sound Bar - available from Audio/video retailers/Amazon.com etc.
2. If you have a hifi system or Ipod dock in your house with a 3.5mm jack input, and you TV has a 3.5mm jack headphone socket then you could connect it up and this will use the speakers on your audio equipment which will improve the output.

Hello, have you got any headhones? If yes, then plug them into your laptop and play a cd or run something from youtube...can you hear any sound?
Do you have a portable radio or mp3 player? If yes, plug your speakers into the earpiece socket on either one of them...you will be able to get sound out of them if they are working. This is a good test of your loudspeaker system as the output from a radio or mp3 player is of a similar level as that of a pc or laptop soundcard.
Let me know how you get on,..and don't forget to vote!

How to i connect my bose companion 2speakers to my computer and get sound


hi, first Identify what computer you have. Is It A Mac or PC?

If it is PC
-------------
There should be 2 small 3.5mm coloured sockets on the back,front (or both ) of the main box (tower/desktop unit). You should find that they are coloured Green and Red. Green is for sound output (Headphones/speakers or hifi) and the Red is for sound input or Recording. Used for things like microphones. Some will accept line sources such as mixers and Ipods pr cassette players, but please check your sound manager, mixer settings in your opperating system to make your you have an adjustable input setting for Mic and Line input attenuation as not all do and you may end up with a distorted mess. You may also find there is a small diagram of headphones or a microphone to indicate sound "in" and "out" ports.

If you have a mac
-------------------------

Appart fom me being envious :-) there are two sockets. On laptop types, on the side or on the tower types on the front,back or both. They have a diagram of a microphone and headphones. Hadphones is for audio output to headphones, speakers, hifi, dj mixer. The Microphone is a sound input. Please read above for microphone port usage. Hopefully this answers your question. Please also bear in mind that if you have no sound once plugged in, you may need to adjust the audio properties in the system in the system and/or program you may be using

Can mp3,ipod connect to philips FW-R7 with cd


All you need to get them to play is a "dock" and a 3.5mm Jack to two RCA phono plugs lead.
The Jack goes into the headphone output and the RCA's go into any spare socket on the back of the unit IE tape/cd.
Infact you just need the lead, plug it into the headphone output of the Ipod or MP3 player. But the dock will keep the battery charged and you get a remote with the dock, so you don't need to get out of your chair, to operate the player.

Faint sound from the speakers


Most speakers are mains powered (either plugged directly into a wall socket, or maybe using a 12volt adaptor), and inside the speakers will use a small amplifier circuit. These circuits are prone to often going faulty and may lose one speaker or both, so instead the speaker will then only play the sound as it gets it from the PC (or hifi etc.).

Audio to speakers is not sent in a 'loud' form, but is instead just a very high quality weak signal that must be amplified to be heard. Typically a PC sound output may be just .5 to 1.5 volts only, just enough to work a set of headphones but nothing much more.

I suggest checking your speakers on another item, such as a CD player or hifi that definatly works, and if its the same, its most likely the 'amp' gone faulty. It's not really worth fixing as they usually only break in cheaper types of speakers - so its as easy to just buy another set.

If they work OK on other devices, maybe check these things:

Is the volume up on the computer ? Check on the volume icon on the taskbar, and also if its a laptop check its not got a volume dial that has been accidentaly turned down/off.

Test the computer with other speakers, to just narrow down the fault.

Some PC's have several output sockets at the rear (or front), so make sure you have it plugged in to the correct socket - even if you have used it before, some PC's software can actually change what comes from each socket, so your MIC socket could now have become your SPEAKER socket, or other settings may have been changed by other software.

Check your operating system is not using a 4 speaker setup instead, and sending the sound to non-existent rear speakers/woofers/tweaters. My own PC has 8 outputs, so I make sure nothing alters my settings or i'd never hear it again ;)

Its also possible for the PC audio chip to go faulty, but that is very very rare. If nothing else works & the speakers are known working ones, you may have to try a new sound card.

Remember that plugging the standard 3.5mm stereo jack plug into the wrong sound card socket will not cause harm, you may just hear a loud 'THUMP' or click as the power goes across.

One last thing is, try reinstalling your audio drivers. PC operating systems can lose driver functions and do any possible thing you can imagine. It may be as simple as a reinstall to wake up the audio card again.

Good luck.
