Laptop switches sound from speakers to headphone jack on its own

Q: Laptop switches sound from speakers to headphone jack on its own

Like the headline says, I have a problem with sound on my Toshiba laptop (model is Satellite L755-S5110). Sound just randomly switches to headphones, even though they aren't connected. The sound just stops playing from the speakers, and when I plug in headphones, it plays normaly through headphones, and works fine while using them, but when I unplug headphones, the sound then plays from speakers for some time and then again just stops on its own and if I plug headphones again, it plays through them.
First, I thought it was some driver issue with win 10, so I did clean install of windows 7 (it was first installed when I bought my laptop), then again installed all the required drivers from the toshiba site (I checked in the device manager couple of times if all audio drivers were up to date, tried reinstalling/installing again), and the exact same problem remained. I also tried reinstalling audio driver provided from toshiba site, and used microsoft audio driver, and again the same problem.
Also, for example, when the sound stops playing from speakers, i just open Playback devices (where my default speakers device is listed), and the sound starts playing again through speakers (didnt change anything there, just opened it...)
I'd really appreciate if someone could help me with this issue, since I've already tried everything I could think of, and none worked yet.
I'm also not really good with computers, so if you have any possible solutions, please let the instructions be as plain as possible...

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Right click the Sound icon in the Taskbar by the clock
Choose Troubleshoot Sound Problems.
The sensor inside the headphone jack may be failing. Take a Paper clip and straighten it out and poke it in the headphone jack with the computer off, and then try it again.

I usually listen to music with speakers through the headphone jack. When I unplug the speakers, the music plays through the stock laptop speakers like it is supposed to do.

However, all of a sudden, the sound has only worked through these external speakers. It plays fine through the headphone jack, but when I unplug the speakers, the laptop speakers do not work.

I have restored the computer to an earlier point that I know they were working, but still nothing.

The laptop is a Dell Inspiron E1705.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi.

I've recently bought a laptop online with no OS installed on it. I've installed Windows 7 Ultimate Edition and downloaded all drivers from the manufactures website. Everything works fine except there is no audio coming through the headphone jack or built-in speakers. I have spent majority of today looking online for answers on how to fix this issue and have found nothing that works.

The laptop model is a HP Pavillion dv6-1007tx.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: When I plug in a HDMI cable to the laptop, sound comes through my TV.

Hi, you could download the maintenance and service guide from HP.com to see if the connector is mounted to the mainboard and if it would be a difficult repair.  If so, you might use something like the Sabrent USB audio adapter as a workaround.  I have one and it works well.

I have a ASUS laptop running win 7 64 bit. out of the blue the sound stopped working. no sound will come from the internal speakers, though sound is being registered in the various volume control screens. If i plug speakers into my headphone input, the sound comes out. IVe tried all the various volume/sound settings (the obvious fixes) with no luck. can someone suggest some other possibilities that might cause this problem?

Thanks so much for your time.

A:Got sound from my headphone jack abut nothing from speakers

These systems are auto sensing what is plugged in. You can try reinstalling the sound driver as one thing. Another is a "recycle" of the device - go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the device and then LEFT click "Uninstall" - DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the device. If the status with Windows was corrupt this will fix that.

New to the board here, and want to say hi
I'm hoping to get some help, I'm pretty good at trouble shooting problems with my comp. but I'm stumped on this one. I've rebooted, checked all volume levels, ran the sound test and sound comes from both speakers as well as the headphones,all drivers are up to date, and there are no yellow exclamation points on speakers or sounds. I have music playing on my windows media player and nothing, you tube ...no sounds. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The part where you plug the headphones into the tower broke off into the front headphone jack, I then opened up the tower and pushed it out but there is still no sound coming threw the speakers. Now my question is this, regarding the spring, Does it have to be fully extended for the computer not too think anything is in the jack or not? The Spring is still in, but when looking into the hole there is a metal piece that is push over too the left as in the hold is closed, should it be pushed back? (re-bent) or something too that effect.

And if no body knows the answer too this, any way to just disconnect that whole headphone jack to i can have sound threw my speakers again. Running on a Dell Dimension 4600C

Hi everyone,

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, so please feel free to re-direct if necessary.

I have a brand new Toshiba Satellite A665-S9092 laptop that just started exhibiting a weird problem: I get an occasional crackling, popping sound from whatever I plug into the headphone jack. I've tried with my Bose speakers and two separate sets of headphones. It seems to occur whenever the hard drive is accessed: when the computer is idle, I don't hear a peep, but whenever I e.g. refresh my browser or open a program, it starts crackling. The odd thing is that I don't get this from the built-in laptop speakers - only from whatever I plug into the headphone jack.

Anyone have any idea what could be causing this? One of the main uses of this machine is playing music so this problem is putting a serious crimp in my enjoyment...

(Extra info: under "Sound, Video and Game Controllers" in the Device Manager I have 4 instances of nVidia High Definition Audio, and 1 instance of Realtek High Definition Audio. Checking "driver update" tells me the drivers are up to date. Not sure why there are 4 instances of the nVidia HD Audio.)

I recently did a big update, which involved updating the BIOS (from version 1.91 to 1.93). Since then the speakers on the tablet, and headphones when attached, no longer produce sound. Sound works okay from the keyboard speakers. I've tried updating the driver (intel smart sound technology), as well as rolling back, uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. Nothing has worked so far. My best guess is that the BIOS update is responsible, since the tablet speakers and headphones also no longer work in linux, but did before the update. Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions for a fix to try before downgrading the bios would be highly appreciated.

My laptop speakers work fine however, and I tried re-installing drivers. I made sure that my headphones are the default playback device, and I only have one headphone jack.

Other people who had this issue solved it by replacing their audio jack, but for me that is not a problem because the audio jack works fine when I boot into Fedora.

Normally, the "Speakers" (PC sound) is set as the Default Playback device and not Headphones. In fact, newer RealTek sound systems do not even show the Headphones when plugged in.

Are you using the correct sound drivers? Not the generic Windows installed High Definition Audio Codec.

Hello,
 
I just purchased a new notebook, and I have a bit of a problem. When I plug headphones into the side headphone jack, the sound quality is downright terrible. Very shortly I noticed that it didn't sound as good/decent as my older notebook.
 
The speakers seem to sound fine, well you know - as good as laptops can sound. 
 
Right now I have two notebooks side by side: 
a friends Samsung Series 3 (NP300E5C), with Windows 8 (upgraded from W7) / Microsoft High Definition audio
my Toshiba L50 Windows 8 / Realteck High Definition
 
I dont have my older notebook anymore, but I do remember it sounding better. Comparing this Toshiba to the Samsung (both sitting on the desk side-by-side), the Toshiba sounds a little better through the speakers, but there is no comparison with the headphone - The Samsung is pretty decent while the Toshiba makes me cry. 
 
Now granted, I'm not expecting a symphony, but if I cant solve this I'm going to have to sell the Toshiba.
 
I've tried uninstalling Realtek, but I couldn't get the sound to work.
Re-installing Realtek solved nothing
 
One thing I noticed, there is no 'headphone' icon in the device manager (Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound / or simply right click the audio icon in the taskbar). Are the headphones not high definition or something?

I want to get my MP3 player running through my CD player's speakers. Can anyone help?
 

A:Headphone jack to stereo speakers

Are you talking about a "boom box" type cd player? If so, your stereo needs to have some type of aux input. You can use the headphone jack of the mp3 player as an output but keep the volume low. Inputs are normally line level so they don't need a lot of power sent to them to amplify the music. Infact, sending too much of a signal into an input can damage a stereo. try to balance it so the volume you here from a cd and the mp3 player are the same. .1 watt is enough for the line level input.

A:Solved: microphone to headphone jack and speakers

I use an external mixer for this kind of thing- that way I can not only use the headphones to monitor the inputs, but my mixer allows me to select one input among many while not disturbing the mix.

Even an inexpensive mixer will have multiple mic or high level inputs and many will have the ability to add reverb or other effects. They can also feed one or more computers for recording (and/or backup of main recording).

Where I work, the IT department made the mistake of purchasing computers with built-in speakers. We do not want the speakers to function at all, only any sound put through the headphone jack. After disabling the speakers, we found that YouTube no longer works, which is a problem.

That said, is there a way to permanently disable the speakers, leave the headset jack enabled and still allow YouTube to continue playing videos even if a headset is not plugged in?

A:Disable speakers and keep headphone jack enabled?

I'm not sure if this will do what you want, but type sound into the search bar, click on change sound card settings, right click the speakers and select disable, then select the headphones and at the bottom click Default. That should disable the speakers and use the headphones for all sounds.

Hello, I have a problem, which many people probably have encountered at some point.

I have this Asus K73SV notebook, but the incident happened - my headphones jack broke and is now stuck inside my notebook. Unfortunately, I can't get it out and my computer still considers that little piece as headphones so my internal speakers makes no sound.

How can I make this work? I have Realtek drivers and I don't have that option where I could disable that jack, doesn't matter which version or from where I download those drivers. And I can only see speakers through my control panel.

I saw there is an option where you can use ForceDisableJD in registry, but there is no such option in my registries.
What should I do? I tried to fix this for the whole day and I'm completely lost.

Asus M4A78-EM motherboard using Realtek drivers from Asus site.

The front headphone jack did not work until I installed the Realtek drivers from the Asus site.

Actually they didnt work until I checked on Disable Front Panel Detection. That got it going but the rear speakers are still playing.

Mute the Rear Output Device When Front Input Is Plugged In is checked on.

From what I've read this is simply a result of having the front audio panel set up as AC97 instead of HDA. 5 wires versus 7(or is it 9)

I'll include some pics. First one is how the wires are currently configured and the second is a page from the manual.

With 2 extra pins on the left end of the front audio board not being used I'm wondering what they might be for? Are they not used or would running 2 wires from those pins to the Presence and Sense_send connectors on the audio header on the mb do anything.

Or are there an extra 4 wires used on an HDA front panel? Presence, Sense_send, Sense1_Retur and Sense2_Retur.

It's quite possible sufficient damage was done, either by the plug getting stuck or the work in removing it, that the contacts inside the jack have been forced into cutting the speakers circuits off as happens when plugging into it. From the number of Notebooks I've had to junk and take apart first I'd say the only real solution is a new motherboard or a new Notebook. If it were a Desktop one can disable the onboard audio system and get an Add-in Sound card. Or maybe try the USB type speakers.

Dear Community I have problems with the audio on my Think Pad X380 Yoga. The internal speakers and the headphone jack aren't working. I tried to reinstall the audio driver several times. Every time I uninstall the Conexant SmartAudio HD driver the Notebook reinstalls the driver by itself after restart. I also tried to manually install it before rebooting the system. Which worked but didn?t fix the problem.At the moment driver version 8.66.88.50 is installed, which should be the newest version. Does anyone have an idea what I could do? I can see the green audio output moving on the volume mixer in windows.And before you ask, yes I have tried to fix my sound problem with the Lenovo help site (https://support.lenovo.com/gr/de/solutions/ht501860). Thanks for any help!

Recently, while playing unreal tournament, I realize there was no sound coming out of the speaker once I unplugged my headphones. I restarted thinking that it would fix the problem, but that didn't help, so I decided to uninstall and reinstall the sound driver from realtek, no good either. Finally I deicided to reformat my computer using the recovery partition. Reassuring myself that this will definitely solve the problem I was shock and confuse as to why no sound came out of the speaker after the recovery. After going to the Realtek sound control panel I realize that the computer thinks or detected that a headphone was plugged in when clearly it wasn't. The sound does work with the headphone in and I am sure the speaker is not damaged because the POST sound, "boommmmm", comes during bootup. I really don't understand what is going on, and I already reformatted the harddrive 2 times.

I have read that the problem can be temporarily solve by replacing the motherboard, but after about a week or two, the same problem will arise. I have also read that other brands including HP, DELL and Sony has similar problems.

I can live without the speakers but I am not sure if further problems will persist with this laptop, since its only been month that I have purchased it.

Thanks for many reply/help.

Speakers plugged into back jack securely
(actually if you heard the startup booom sound, then they must be)

Sound volume up on speaker
Sound volume up on Windows
Sound volume up in the game that you are using
(That might be it)

If you play a song (through Windows media player) can you hear it ?
If so this must be an in game setting (ie mute sound) Please check all settings in the game.

I purchased my laptop about a month ago and just over a week ago my internal speakers stopped working and instead just make a very quiet popping/cracking sound when audio is being played. My headphone port still works perfectly tho. Every so often the speakers will start working again randomly but always eventually stop working again. I'm guessing it is a hardware issue and plan on sending it back under warranty but just wanted to make sure as happened very randomly.Cheers

 recently bought a Dell latitude E6420 i5-2520M 8GB and I am experiencing a very annoying issue with the speakers.
The sound coming from the speakers worked until I plugged in the headphones jack into the computer for the first time - when I unplugged the headphones internal speakers stop to work completely.
What I have tried so far with no success:

Uninstall and reinstall windows audio/sound drivers
Tried Realtek drivers
Disabled headphones
Recovery and reinstall Windows 10

What is strange is that every time I uninstall and reinstall the sound drivers the speakers start to work again until i plug the jack of the headphones and again speakers stop to work. Any Idea?
Please let me know what you need to know about my computer to better understand the problem and I will amend the question accordingly.
Thanks!

Apparently, this is a known issue with the Realtek drivers on the Dell Latitude.

title says it, i downloaded the most recent version of the realteck drivers from toshibas site and i have no sound when plugging in headphones.

A:No sound from headphone jack

Did the headphone jack ever work? Is the headset you are using a known good headset?

If the unit is still under warranty, best to contact Toshiba. If its a hardware problem (and under warranty) only Toshiba can get it corrected.

I have a Fugitsu Lifebook Series A laptop. It has always performed well in the past. I bought some higher quality Monster headphones and now no sound will come out of the headphones. It says that the phones are not plugged in when they are. I have run the troubleshooter in the control panel with no success.
Any suggestions?

A:Headphone jack in, no sound

Hi first test the headphones in another computer and if working there try reinstalling the sound driver available from the fujitsu support pages for your model.

Hello,

I am running Windows 7 x64 on an Asus U56E machine. The audio works fine on my Linux partition through both the speakers and headphone jack. The headphone jack therefore works.
But I cannot get sound using working headphones while listening through the headphone jack in Windows 7.
How to fix this?

A:Sound not playing through headphone jack

Welcome to the Windows 7 Forum.

Researching that model (you failed to fully fill out the "My System Specs") you have RealTek audio.

Do you have the RealTek sound driver installed? Here is the link to the ASUS drivers ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download U56E

Can you post a screen shot of the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound, Sound Panel Playback and the Device Manager Sound sections.

This will give us something to start with. Since it works in Linux that says the hardware is OK.

here is my problem
after doing a format , i installed all the drivers but now the sound , when i use headphones is not right . It seems i am only getting one side of the audio .eg music but no vocals , or vocals and no music . if i only put the headphone jack almost all of the way in then i get the full sound .

I am a sound engineer in the live music industry and my understanding of this is because it is being sent as a digital signal and not as an anolog signal as required by the headphone jack . I may be 100% wrong about my theory there .

I have an acer travelmate 4000 . win xp . i have tried the driver update programs and have tried a few differant drivers
ac97 combo driver
realtek ac97
conexant AMC
I have been to the acer website and installed the drivers they say are correct for my machine . i use windows media player 11 , real player , divx player . ll do the same thing .

all work when using the inbuilt speakers on the laptop but all give incorrect sound with headphones.

Can somebody point me in the right direction to resolve this problem

A:Incorrect sound in headphone jack

Sounds like it is most likely a settings issue. Head to Control Panel -> Sound and Audio Devices. Check the Audio Tab for Advanced playback settings. Or the Hardware Tab for driver info.

Hi,

When I first installed Windows 7 on my computer I had to manually install a sound driver. I went to the Dell site and downloaded the only audio driver for my system, Dell Precision T7500.

The driver was SoundMax. The onboard sound worked, but the headphone socket one the front wasn't. Even when I had my headphones plugged it they werent getting picked up on Playback devices.

A friend of mine told me to just delete the driver, and let windows download its own sound driver (it didn't do it when I installed windows for some reason). So, I rebooted after uninstalling the SoundMax driver and Windows automatically downloaded and installed the "High Definition Audio Device" driver.

Now the audio icon in the windows tray has a red cross on and says "No speakers or headphones are plugged in" I plugged my headphones in on the fron headphone jack and its not picking them up.

I click the icon and let it troubleshoot headphones. I get the following message "The peripheral does not appear to be plugged in. Check the connection. Proceed to next step to finish." I unplug them and plug them back in, click next, and it just says the issue is not fixed.

I have taken the side panel off and check the connections and all wires are connected.

dxdiag is showing as no sound card present. Results are below:

The tip of my headphones broke off in the jack. I can't seem to get it out of the jack. Now I don't have sound from the computer speakers. Is there a way to disable the headphone jack to restore the sound to the speakers?  Thanks for any help.

Recently purchased T450s from Lenovo Canada online. I have been having intermittent issues with sound, where sometimes no sound will come out of my headphones. Today the issue seems to have become more or less permanent. Sound comes out of the speakers, but not out of headphone jack. I have tried in both Linux and Windows with the same results. I have tried with multiple pairs of headphones and have ensured that the volume is turned up appropriately when the headphones are plugged in, but still hear no sound coming through. The headphones I have tried all work with other devices. I have rebooted several times in each operating system. I have Googled the issue, of course, but most solutions seem to be OS-specific. I am starting to think this is a hardware issue, as it occurs in both OS's. Any thoughts for next steps?

A:No sound from headphone jack -- t450s

Hi hellomynameispt,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
You can try this, right click on the volume symbol at the right bottom corner and select an option playback devices, make sure your headphones are connected to the audio jack port once you click on the playback device you see an icon where it will show headphones are detected.
 
Please check with above steps and let me know at the earliest to assist you further.
Thank you, have a good day.

When I plugged in the headphone into the audio jack, there is no sound.  The sound is coming from the internal speakers.  I just installed System Mechanic and ran a system analysis.  I don't know if the registry was changed or what.  There is not a problem with the headphone; I tried another headphone and have the same problem.  The laptop detects the headphone, an icon shows in the Notifications area saying a device was plugged in.

Inspiron 15 series 3543
Realtek HD Audio Device

A:No sound when headphone is plugged into audio jack

Hello. See if it will work when you switch from the Realtel driver to the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, then no need to restart.
[To get back to the Realtek driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]
