You can get a set of speakers that has a headphone jack on front (it will shut off the speakers when headphones are in) or you can unplug the speakers and plug in the head phones. Some PCs have a red and green jack in front - plug in headphones to the green, you should have the speakers shut off till you unplug. All else fails they make a headphone/mic extender that sits like a hockey puck on the desk, has cables to the mic and speaker jacks on back of the PC and on the puck part has a jack for speakers, mic and headphone - some switched manually by you, some switch when the headphones plug in. If you had posted the model I could see if your machine has front red and green jacks.

We have a Tevion 45967, we want to just play records on it. Do we need to plug it into external speakers


Not directly.
You can:
play it via AUDACITY on your computer, or
amplify it from the line-out RCA sockets*, via your sound-card line in or a separate hi-fi amplifier with equalizer, or
use a headphone-splitter cable and amplify from that to powered speakers.
*The downside of RCA sockets is that your player's internal speakers still work.
Anything plugged into the headphone socket cuts out internal speaker. The headphone splitter allows monitoring via a headphone aaas well.

My phone only works on speaker, even when it have a volume level of seven, it won't work on a regular phone call. Also any icons that use to beep no longer have any sound


Notifications sounds from either external speaker or headphones, but never from the ear piece volume. Your question suggest that the external speaker is damage but it only works on external speaker. Try using a headphone or a bluetooth to make calls, if they work, then you need to fix the external speaker.

Samsung soundbar with sub woofer


Maybe try headphones settings instead of internal speakers and consider the sound bar as headphones. Some TV's may limit output to headphones as well but start there.
Assuming you have a Samsung TV, look at your TV settings.
You may have the sound level on auto.
Next check to see if you are set for the external speakers, you might have to look in additional settings to find this.
Should you have another brand of TV the concept is the same.
so check settings for TV for external output.

My view sonic monitor has no sound


Troubleshooting Sound Issues Verify that the audio cable is connected to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card and plugged into the AUDIO IN or LINE IN of the Monitor.   Make sure there are no cables connected to the Headphone Jack (located next to the AUDIO IN port) on the monitor. If there is, please disconnect that cable and try the speakers again. Connecting a cable to the Headphone Jack disables the speakers. If there is no cable connected into the Headphone Jack, test a pair of headphones into that jack to see if you can hear sound out of the headphones. If you are able to hear sound out of the headphones, disconnect the headphones and try the speakers again.   Verify that the Mute on the monitor is not on or the Volume is not turned down.    Verify that the Mute on the computer is not on or the Volume is not turned down.<    If there is still no audio from the monitor's speakers, connect the Audio cable to another audio source like a portable CD player or tape player headphone output. If audio can be heard through the monitor's speakers, then there may be an issue with the computers sound card.    Connect another set of computer speakers (if available) or headphones to the AUDIO OUT or LINE OUT output on the Sound Card. If NO audio can be heard then there is an issue with the sound card. Verify with the computer's manufacturer for additional assistance.   LCD TVs Troubleshooting No Sound from a LCD TV No Sound when using RGB (when connected to a PC) Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the computer. Note: On the N1700W use the GREEN mini-jack; on this model Audio is SHARED between DVI and RGB, there is only 1 audio channel for data connections. The N1700w is designed to take a 1.0v RMS audio signal for optimal sound quality.   Confirm that both the LCD TV Mute and Windows Mute are off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the monitor or remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Confirm that PC volume is sufficient by using Windows/Macintosh Volume adjustment settings.   Try plugging another audio source such as a CD or Cassette Player directly into the Audio port on the LCD TV to confirm the speakers work, or try plugging headphones or external speakers into the sound card on the Computer. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your Computer for further support. No Sound when using S-Video/Composite/ Component Video Confirm the audio cable is plugged into the Audio in on the LCD TV and the audio out on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Confirm Mute is off. A general message will be displayed on screen to indicate status of Mute (On or Off).   Press the Volume Up Button on the LCD TV or Remote to confirm the Volume is not set to zero.   Try plugging headphones or external speakers into the audio port on the S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device. If the Headphones or External Speakers do not work, contact the manufacturer of your S-Video, Composite, or Component Video device.   Note: Some ViewSonic monitors do not include speakers.

I'm using the tv as a monitor for my pc. How come I can't get my headphones for my pc to work when plugged into the back of the tv?


This is because the cable you are using to connect your PC to your TV does not carry a sound signal, only picture. To play sound you will need to connect a pair of external speakers to your PC, or if you want to listen on headphones, connect the headphones to the PC instead of the TV.

How to connect headphones to this tv.


The only way to accomplish this will require an external amplifier.

Connect the program out to the input of the external amp and use the headphones from there. Disconnect the speakers or turn them off in the audio menu.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Sound coming from built in speakers instead of head phones


the socket that you are using, I assume headphone socket, has a "switch" inside that cuts off the speakers when you insert the plug. Perhaps this is broken/bent or shorted out.

Sound coming through computer speakers instead of through fast track.


Check your audio settings to make sure that it's going to the right driver. goto: start -> control panel -> sound and audio devices out of the 5 tabs, you'll want to pay attention to 2 of them, these are the "audio" and "voice" tabs. Make sure that your speakers on are the external sound system's drivers and not your internal sound card. (Basically, make your sound playback the same as your sound recording)
