Headphone jack problem

Even when I try differing headphones, the headphone jack takes a big of wiggling and proding around to get the sound to come out clearly in both speakers. Can I take it to best buy and get this fixed or fix it myself or what?

Most likely the solder points inside the unit where the headphone jack attaches to the system board have come undone. If you know how to solder, you could open the unit and fix it. If that is not an option, you could resort to using the other headphone jack instead assuming it is not damaged as well.

Looking for old Logitech S-100 driver

These are analog speakers and do not need a driver. First, make sure they're plugged into the speaker/headphone jack and not the microphone jack. Second, make sure the computer's sound output is enabled and set the headphone/speaker jack. Third, verify that the sound output is working by plugging in a headphone set or a different pair of speakers. If the computer sound checks out, the speaker cable is bad or the power supply is not working.

I have a 2002 Chrysler Town & country and I can't get the sound to work for the Vcr/player Without headphones. How do I get the sound without the headphones?

I had one of these and it turned out to be the headphone jack, when you put the headphone plug into the jack it disables the speaker and when you unplug the headphones it enables the speaker. There's a contact in the jack and it is probably stuck to headphones. The jack may need to be replaced. Try and wiggle the plug a few times but not hard as it may break from the curcuit board.

My left earpiece in my sentry headphones have no sound. How do I fix this?

Check the plug - it might have a broken wire, by wiggling it in the jack. It could be the jack as well - try another headphone in the jack.

MUSIC HAS NO SOUND

If it's all music on the mp3 player,then try a different pair of headphones. If still no sound, try partially unplugging, plugging in the headphones and try wiggling the connector .If there is still no sound, then try erasing all the songs on it and restore the device. If that doesn't help, then it's probably time to replace the mp3 player since the headphone jack is damaged.

Acer Aspire 1406 no sound issue

So sometimes laptops play up when the headphone socket gets a bit worn. If you wiggle a headphone jack in the socket (put it in at different angles, and rub around) sometimes the sound will come back.

There are two prongs that "detect" the headphones, and cut the speakers... and if they don't "un-contact" when the headphones are removed, the speakers stay off.

You'd need someone to solder a new headphone socket on the mainboard to properly fix it, but if you wiggle and get the speakers back, they should stay back until you use the headphone socket again.

Sound Problem with Headphone

First try the headphones in a different machine, such as an mp3 player or cd player to make sure the headphones still work.

Try going to the start button, then settings and control panel. Then select "Sounds and Audio devices" Down at the bottom you should see "Speaker settings." Click the "Advanced" button and then select stereo headphones.

Then, place the headphones into the green audio jack (or the headphone jack up front if you have them), play some music, and then gently wiggle the jack to see if some of the sound makes it into the headphones. If not, try slowly pulling the headphones out of the jack while the music is plaaying. you might find that the jack has slipped a little and may play only if your connector is slightly pulled out or more firmly pushed in. If his helps, then your audio connector is loose and you should replce the sound card. If the card is on the motherboard, you can disabled it when you put a new card in.

Dell Inspiron 6000 PC Audio Ports Damaged

You should have sound from the speakers at all times until headphones are plugged into the jack, the jack then overrides the speakers and allows you to listen using the headphones. If the speakers aren't working, it's because they're being overridden by the damaged jack. The only way to correct this is to replace the faulty jacks. You could get a set of external speakers, the con is they're bulky and inconvenient.
