Front Panel Audio Connector: Jaud1

Q: Front Panel Audio Connector: Jaud1

Hi everyoneWhile I took the front panel off of my case the other day I accidently removed the JAUD1 jumpers....and now my sound doesn't work. I downloaded the specific instruction guide from MSI for my motherboard and here's the section for it:The two right sound in and out cables were still attached, and I got sound out of my right speaker. But then when I connected the rest to what I thought was correct, I got sound out of my left speaker only. EDIT: I tried not attaching any of the cables and then I get no sound.The problem I have with these directions is that the cables are not labeled the same as the diagram. They are as follows:Purple - R INYellow - R OUTBlack - GNDGreen - MIC BIASBlue - L INRed - L OUTBlack - GNDOrange - MIC INCan anyone help with this? I'd love to have both of my speakers playing sound again....

So I basically have a very odd front panel audio connector setup, very confusing, I've made over 10 thread on different forums and non were able to help me.

I'm using a Gigabyte G31 motherboard GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 775 - GA-G31M-ES2L (rev. 1.x)

Manual page for the motherboard output can be found below the first image

The front panel audio connectors consists of:
Yellow- MIC BIAS
Green - SPKOUT R
Peach - MIC In
Blue - Return L
Black - Ground
White - SPKOUT L
Grey - SPKOUT L

Much Thanks and appreciation to those who read this read

A:Front Panel Audio connector help needed

Your front panel connections aren't odd, but they are old. They are for the AC97 standard.

Set your onbaord audio to AC97 in the BIOS set-up.

The AC97 pinouts are here:

Desktop Boards — Front panel audio header pinouts

1 Mic In
2 Ground
3 Mic Bias
5 Spkout R
9 Spkout L

It looks like the onboard audio doesn't support the Return lines.

There should only be one Spkout L connector. It's the white (not gray) one.

Have you really been trying to figure this out for 5 months? Yikes.

If these connections cause your PC to go up in a fireball, don't blame me.

I just put in a Soyo P4I865PE Plus Dragon 2 into a POWMAX case. I had another Soyo Dragon P4X400-8235 mobo that had fried, and I'm replacing it.
What the mobo connector pins for the front panel require are the HDD LED, ACPI LED, PWRBT, RESET, POWER LED, KEY LOCK, SPEAKER.

My case has the SPEAKER, THE RESET, and the HDD LED, plus a POWER SW, and
one cable with
mic-bias
spkout r
spkout l
Return R
Return L

and 2 cables each with
+vcc
+D
-D
grounds.

So I have the SPEAKER, THE HDD LED and the RESET pins connected.

Right now I'm not getting any power. I suspect that it's because the POWER LED hasn't been hooked up. I don't know if hooking the POWER SW to the POWER LED will do any good--or any harm. Any suggestions, or do I need a different case?

Thanks for any suggestions, tips, or answers.

Hi Guys:

It's been a while since I've posted a question, however, this one is really bugging me. Recently, I've been putting together a lot of systems that have the 9-pin front-panel connection on the motherboard. The problem for me is that the ACPI/LED has only a
2-pin and most cases come with 3-pin cables. No mater which way I input the 3-pin cable, the front-panel LED light will not come on. Does anybody know what I'm referring? If you can Be of assistance, please give me some input.

Thanks.
 

A:Motherboard 9-Pin Front-Panel Connector

If the motherboard requires a 2 pin connector and the case manufacturer supplies a 3 pin connector just take the pins out of the connector and place them next to one another in the connector. There is a little tab on the connector you can lift up and slide the pin out. It's hard to explain here, but once you look at it closely you will see what I mean.

I managed to get everything connected besides the front panel connectors which are very important. The ThinkCentre motherboard is a bit weird in its layout and the ThinkCentre case had a single connector that connects into this pinout however, my new case has single connectors instead of a single 13 pin + 1 blank connector. My case has a connector which consists of a total of 9 pins.It would've been simple if the board had a marking indicating what each pinout is for and which is positive and negative but unfortunately there isn't any of  that. At the moment I can't seem to find any information at all with regard to how I should connect this. I would like to get opinions with regards to which pin goes where. This is the full specs of the desktop

Hello! Recently, I transferred my Dell Motherboard (From an Inspiron 560) to a new Rosewill Challenger-S case. All of that went fine and dandy but now I'm facing another problem: I don't quite know where to plug up the cables from the case's front panel (power switch, reset switch, HDD LED). I found a port on my motherboard labeled "Front Panel" which matches the ports, but one is missing like normal front panel connectors, and the cables only take up 6 out of the 9 pins. So the real question is, where do you plug up the cables, or do you even put them in that spot?

Hello.
I am having a not so common issue of a problematic REAR audio panel jack. The microphone pin got stuck and broken into the rear/back microphone jack and now the OS/driver thinks there is a microphone in the back panel but I just want to be able to make the microphone work on the front panel without needing to buy an external audio card (usb/pci) and disabling the integrated one.
The motherboard is Gigabyte GA-EP31-DS3L and the audio driver allows me to change what is plugged into the microphone jack but there is no option to disable it. I can disable the whole audio card from within BIOS but that doesn't help much. I have working speakers on the rear panel but on the front when I plug them it just gives a constant buzzing noise (like short circuit from the broken pin). If I plug microphone on the front panel nothing happens. Also Windows 7 doesn't detect a second microphone and even if I disable the original microphone there is still buzzing only in the front panel. Changing any possible option in skype doesn't make the microphone work either. I installed the latest drivers from the official site so it is not a broken driver issue. I can choose the microphone to be "Line In" but if I choose the blue jack to be "microphone" the audio driver program says "this device type is not supported". I suppose there is some software/registry fix to this problem but searching on google everyone wants the vice-versa version of the problem/solution (disa... Read more

A:How to disable read audio panel and make the front panel primary?

Nothing that I know of to fix that other than dig out the piece of pin that's stuck in the jack. I have a Gigabyte motherboard (different model) and RealTek and there is no option for what you want to do.

The jacks are enclosed, in most cases, so pushing it out from the back is probably not an option. I've seen some cases where users have got a broken pin out of a jack with a magnet. In other cases putting a small amount of glue on a probe and inserting it into the jack and gluing to the pin has got it out. Both of these are long shots but something to consider.

This possibly should go in the hardware forum since it involves the motherboard as well but being a sound issue I assume here would be better.
I have an Asus Xonar DG sound card on an Asus P7P55D-E LX motherboard (and AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series video card) running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
I asked ASUS tech if I can use both the front panel & back panel at the same time for use of my headset (headphones and mic therefore headphone jack and mic jack.) They said NO that I had to choose one or the other, not both, and, that this has nothing to do with the sound card or MB but rather is a Windows thing. I assume this info is correct. Is it? If not please advise me as how to be able to use both.
On the assumption that it is correct, that I must make a choice an idea popped up.
My speakers are 'Cyber Acoustics CA-5402'. They have a control pod whereby on this control pod I could add my headphones whereby all speaker sounds are cut off automatically. Unfortunately this control pod which also controls the volume of the speakers no longer has control of the volume when the headphones are on and therefore volume must be controlled via Windows.
My idea. Can the Xonar, or rather Windows along with it, be set up so as to use only the front panel for the mic but NOT for the headphones?
OR
Since the control pod also has and 'aux in' (unfortunately not 'aux out') maybe this could be hacked somehow.
OR
Since I actually have 2 control pods, of which only one can be attached (to t... Read more

A:Using both front panel audio and back panel: solutions

Whether you can use both, depends on the sound card software, not Windows. You should be able to use the front for mic and the GREEN speaker jack on the back for the headphones. However, why would you want to do that? If you plug the headphones into the rear speaker jack, you have to unplug the speakers from the PC to do this.

Normal operation is to use the front panel for the headphones (and mic) and when you plug in the headphones it mutes the output to the speakers. On some sound card control software (for example RealTek) there are options to either mute the speakers when the headset is connected or not mute the speakers and have both headset and speaker sound.

You have to use the designated Mic input, as a PC mic requires 5VDC for operation. Other than the mic input, others do not have 5VDC.

On the front panel connections. Your front panel audio connection must be to the ASUS Xonar and not to the motherboard sound connection. Since you have a separate sound card, your motherboard sound should be disabled in the BIOS so it does not conflict with the Xonar. In addition, you can only have one default audio playback device (e.g. Xonar OR motherboard sound but not both).

A:Front Panel vs. Rear Panel Audio

The sound is comparable from fron and back as they
are processed by the same hardware.
With my X-FI extreme audio card,the front panel header
is only compatible with intel based HD front panel jack assemblies.
You may want to check that you have that before expecting to be
able to just connect the front panel connections.
It won't work with AC97 jacks.
It needs to have the autosensing built in for the jacks.

My audio rear outs used to work, but even so, i was primarily using hdmi out from my video card. I was also diagnosing BSODs at the time and sent my mobo back to asus for an rma. When it got back, I placed it in a different case and attached the font panel audio.

Due to a new living circumstance, I decided to switch back to the normal audio out, as my hdmi sound is awful on my new monitor. Problem is, now i find that the onboard audio does not work.

My front USB slots work and every connector on the rear works fine yet when
i plug headphones into the front audio jack and nothing is detected.

My Bios are updated to the latest version, i have also tried switching to AC97 but makes no difference. Swapping between HDMI and s/pdif doesn't also does nothing.

The case is a fairly cheap case being a SHAW GT-M2 although it is new.

I have a dual boot of Windows 7 and OSX Lion the front doesn't work with either.

All drivers are up to date with no yellow ! in device manager

A:No front Panel audio detected but Rear Audio works on Asus P8H 61-M LX

Check to make sure that the front panel audio cable is actually plugged into the audio header on the motherboard. If the motherboard has HD audio and the front panel has a plug marked HD-Audio, then plug that into the motherboard. Make sure that it is correctly lined up, otherwise the front panel won't work correctly.

Hi, I'm new to the Vista forum, but I've searched for a similar problem in other threads to no avail, so here goes, I recently bought an MSI K9A2GM-FIH AMD 780G AM2+ Motherboard and am running Vista Home Premium 32bit os, I need to find a suitable rear panel connector to take the HiDef Audio from the on-board header to my AV amp. There was nothing supplied in the box and the reseller is less than helpful, any ideas where I can get an back panel connector/adapter to give me either co-ax or optical audio out from the MB?

I have had this problem for months and I have never been able to solve it.

Bios is set for HD Audio. When I connect the front panel hd audio plug from my Lian-Li A77 case into the Asus Rampage II Extreme Supreme FX mini sound card the system will boot up normally. Then when I plug in the microphone all is ok and the mic is perfect. System sound is normal and just awesome.

BUT when I plug in the headset the system crashes and the computer turns off. I have tried different headsets too.

All software is up to date and kosher as far as I can tell. This is a really strange problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry.

I ask you where to buy, I will correspond to a window security.

Thank-you

A:Need help with Front Panel HD Audio

Does this problem occur if you plug the headphones into the line out jack on the back of the Supreme FX card? If not then you may have a short in the line provided by Lian Li to the I/O panel jack. I'd remove the I/O panel to see if a proper connection is being made or if there is a short occuring up at the connector.

A:help me with the front audio panel :(

Hi crysisdark and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

I think that this could be because you have HD audio on your motherboard, but are using an AC'97 front panel (as the vast majority of users are). See AC'97 and HD audio front panel layouts for an explanation. As regards the difference in behaviour between XP and Vista/Windows 7, this is entirely down to the driver.

I know that you probably don't want to hear this, but I suggest that you do check Disable front panel jack detection and possibly uncheck Enable auto popup dialog, when device has been plugged in. It should be pointed out that you will only get complete functionality with an HD front panel, and whilst these are available they are not common.

A:front panel audio

Hi, welcome to techspot.

Co-incidentally, i have EXACT piece of motherboard with you (946GZIS) and i've just solve the problem. You can connect the cable from the small board containing front audio jacks (panel). While doing so, there's 2 jumpers (cable connecting 2 pin) connected. In order to use the front panel, you should either cut one of them or both of them. If you want your rear output to be switched off straight while inserting any source in front, cut only one of the jumper. I'll give you brief description after visiting intel website.

found it here:
ftp://download.intel.com/design/motherbd/is/D5602502US.pdf
Page 52, the place you should insert the connector is "A". About the jumper removal instruction, go here instead :

A:Little help with Front Panel Audio (mic)

Hi,

I viewed your panel with my very tired eyes and kind of got lost in the process...been up for about sixteen hours. However, in the process of building some computers, I have the following charts that you might be able to match up somewhat with what you have. I will try to take another look in the morning after I have had a chance to catch some shuteye, but if you want to take a stab with what I have put down before, here is some of that info:

Hi,

Don’t know if this will help, but this is from an Antec Sonata Case and a P4P800 motherboard.
The pin assignments are:

Case……………..Motherboard
AUD GND………. AGND
FRONT-L……….. LINE_OUT_L
FRONT-R………. .LINE_OUT_R
MIC……………….MICPWR
MIC BIAS…………MIC2
RET-R……………. BLINE_OUT_R
RET-L…………….. BLINE_OUT_L

Leave the motherboard's +5VA and NC pins alone. Hope this helps.

Here is another sample that might help
Case ----->MB
BLUE ----->BLINE_OUT_L
RED ----->Line out_L
PURPLE ----->BLINE_OUT_R

ORANGE----->MICPWR

Hi all,

I've just aquired a front panel that has a Card Reader, USB and
Audio. I've got the Card Reader and USB working great but I can't
work out the audio connections. My motherboard is an MSI 848p Neo-V (AC97)
with the following JAUD1 front panel connection pins:

1 AUD_MIC
2 AUD_GND
3 AUD_MIC_BIAS
4 AUD_VCC
5 AUD_FPOUT_R
6 AUD_RET_R
7 HP_ON
8 KEY
9 AUD_FPOUT_L
10 AUD_RET_L

The front panel audio lead has connectors that are as marked follows:

1 MIC-R
2 MIC-L
3 FRONT-R
4 FRONT-L
5 REAR-R
6 REAR-L
7 GND
8 BASS
9 CENTER

After connecting logically, I have no sound from the back panel at all but
can get sound if I plug headphones into the Front Out jack on the panel. I
was hoping to get sound from the back for normal speakers but then get sound
from headphones plugged into the front panel. AFAIK, plugging in headphones
should disable the rear panel sound. Also, it would appear that the 'Mic In'
on the front panel doesn't work either, or if it does, it's extremely quiet.
I've looked in the motherboard manual but other than saying that if pins 5+6
and 9+10 are jumpered, the signal is directed towards the back panel, it
basically just lists the pins and their labels. It would appear that to
connect the FP leads, the jumpers on 5+6 and 9+10 have to be removed.

Any guidance as to which connector goes onto which pin to get the desired
result would be very much appreciated.

Alternatively, is it possible to run with the onboard... Read more

I have tried asking Biostar and the respone I got was that if I hook up the front audio jacks the rear ones will not work which I already know. Can anyone here shed some light as to which pins on the FJ_AUDIO1 connector I need to hook each wire to?

I have recently purchased an Abit FP-IN9 SLi motherboard. I used to use a Dell system, with a Dell motherboard, and the front audio connectors worked fine. On this new system, there is a slight problem with it.

When I plug in the headphones to the front, nothing happens. No devices are recognised by the computer, and no audio is generated from the headphones. When I unplug the green jack for the speakers from the back of the PC, re-insert it, then insert the headphones into the front they get detected and are useable.

I don't want to have to keep doing this every time I want to use my headphones. Anyone have any ideas why it might be doing this?

A:Front Panel Audio

Hi skallz and welcome to the forums

This might sound like a daft question, but are you sure that the front panel is connected internally? There have been cases where it has not. Another thing - do your headset and microphone actually work? Check by using the sockets at the rear of your PC. You can check the front panel sockets (at least the one for audio out) by temporarily plugging your ordinary speakers in. Sorry that I can't help you any further other than with these suggestions, but if you require further assistance don't hesitate to ask. If you can reply with some more details, i.e. make and model of motherboard and also your soundcard (if it is not the on-board solution) then I will see what I can come up with for you.

Hi guys i have an MSI 6741 M/Board want to connect my front panel audio wires but dont know the pin assignment.

Looking at this picture and table (http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/MSI/100891/100891mvr16.shtml), It would seem like your mic should be easy enough. The audio out is less clear, though. It seems like the front panel allows for floating ground outputs. The HPOUT (headphone out?) R wires will connect to pins 5 & 6, and the L wires to 9 & 10, I'd guess. The white wires can be considered the return side (6 & 10).

Other than the mic, the rest is educated guesswork.

So I opened up the computer to see if the small pins were plugged in. They weren't so you'd think just plugging them will make them work, well I assumed wrong.

I'm not sure how to go about fixing this. The place I plugged in the 7 pins (mic power, mic in, r out, r in, l in, l out, ground) was behind the Audio plug ins on my motherboard.

I'm no tech or anything but it's not really hard to figure out where things go where. But I just can't seem to figure out why the forn panel isn't working.

After looking at where the 'power' button and where my front usb panels are plugged in I picked up the names from there. For instance it would say "Front Panel" on the motherboard and everything would be connected there. However there weren't enough pins for my front mic and audio. So I just assumed it would be put in those pins other pins located just behind the Audio. It did say "F Audio".

I know I shouldn't be messing around with this stuff but I'm not going to waste money on something small like this. Figured I'd ask how I can go about doing this. So how can I get my front panel Microphone and Audio working?
 

A:Front Panel Audio/Mic not working.

You really should find the schematics for your motherboard, there usually avialable from the mobo makers websites. Or you can do what I did as I just searched google images for my mobo as sometimes it is an easier way to get hold of them quicker. Plus you may even find an image of a mobo alreadly connected and you can see how it was done.

Schematics though should show you were and what way the cables should connect.

Good Luck though
