Intenal speaker doesn't turn off when headphones are plugged in

I have an Emerson EMP588-4 mp3 player with a built-in speaker. The speaker is on when headphones are in use. Is there any way to turn off the built-in speaker and listen to music through only the headphones?

    I have had this same problem for a week! I realized that the last time I plugged my iPod into a PC, it was without the headphones plugged in. So, I put my headphones in, plugged the iPod into my PC, let it register for 30 seconds, safely removed hardware, and unplugged! The internal speaker has turned off, and the volume on the headphones is working fine. It is an annoying problem, and there's no other way to "fix" it!

I have an MP3-CD EXP2546 portable player. Can I hear it without headphones? How?

Well this MP3 player does not have a built in speaker so you have to use a headphone or external speaker to get the audio.

Please revert for any further issues.

How do i switch off my speakers on the emerson touch

The socket for Headphone/Ext Speakers is like a DPDT switch. It should essentially disconnect once an external jack is plugged. If it does not Please get your socket checked

I had the same issue as reported above: I could not turn off the built in speaker even when the headphones were plugged in. What I did to correct his was to unplug the headphones from the unit, and then cycle power by holding down the menu and center buttons at the same time until the power shuts off. Once it loaded back up I plugged in the headphones and it worked properly. Hope this helps.

Posting solution to mark this as solved (even though poster already found solution):

Go into Settings menu, select Audio, and speaker output settings. The best is Auto, which will use the built in speaker only if headphones are not plugged in.
