Z510 Speaker sound does not work anymore because something is stuck inside the headphone jack

Q: Z510 Speaker sound does not work anymore because something is stuck inside the headphone jack

Hello, Something is stuck inside my headphone jack (really no idea what, it looks like some amber colored resin) This caused no problems until i tried to stick my headphones in (because i didn't know there was something else inside)Now the little switch inside is activated and i can't use my normal speakers anymore. Pulling the thing out is not possible it really seems glued inside, i can remove small parts of it by scratching with a screwdriver but i see no way to remove it without a drill. I googled for ways to shut off the port so i can revert back to the normal speakers (i really don't care about losing the headphone jack, i normally only use speaker sound) It seems the installed realtek drivers allow no option to deactivate it. I tried reinstalling the realtek driver, changed registry option "EnableDynamicDevices" but didnt find the more promising "ForceDisableJD". The Windows driver also didn't help and i didn't find any other drivers available for this notebook. The BIOS also didn't have any option for this (but maybe i'm just bad at finding it) Is there any way to disable the port on the software side or a way to disconnect the hardware? I have soldering equipment here. I really don't care for a clean solution anymore, just hoping for a way to get the sound. Thanks for your help. Edit: whoops almost forgot the essentials: this is a lenovo z510 with win7 64bit that was not pre-installed (bought without OS)

I had to have the hard drive replaced in my computer due to a defect in the drive. Ever since the hard drive was replaced, the head phone plug-in that is on the face of the tower does not work, but the speaker plug-in that is located in the back of the tower, works just fine.

I cannot figure out what is wrong. The audio driver installed for my system was obtained from the Dell website along with the majority of my other drivers.
Any help would be great.

Hi,
My dell inspiron 14z 5423 no longer have sound from both the speakers and the earphone jack.
This happened after I replaced the Battery and also the hard disk from 500gb to 1TB and upgraded to windows 10.
Before this, I was using Windows 8.1 and everything was working well. I have returned it back to windows 8.1 but the no audio problem still persist.
Also, my speaker symbol on the task bar shows a "cross" sign with "no audio output installed" displaying when I hover on the speaker icon.
Please I need help. have tried all options i can think of including driver updates.
One more thing, the sound driver are not showing up on the device manager window where other drivers are displayed.

Thanks

Hello. Download this Win8.1 IDT audio driver for the Inspiron 14z 5423. There are two versions there -- get the one that says "File Format Hard Drive". Follow the installation instructions and see if the driver shows up in Device Manager.
If it doesn't, perform the PSA or ePSA sound test. If no sound during the test then there has been hardware failure. Could have happened during parts replacement.

Alright, so here's the problem. I just recently got this computer and plugged it into the VGA port and the sound wouldn't work. I plugged Logitech External Speakers into it and the computer didn't even acknowledge that it was there. I plugged in Headphones to see if those worked and they didn't aswell. I asked the guy who I got the computer from and he said that it (sound) would work when plugged in using HDMI. So I did that and the sound does work, but only through the TV speakers. It still doesn't acknowledge the speakers or the headphone s when plugged in. So I wen t and grabbed some other speakers I had and tried those and It still didn't recognize the speaker. My question is: How Do I Get My Computer To Recognize My Speakers? Any help would be much appreiciated.

I have a 2.1 speaker set attached to my laptop that does not have its own headphone jack. So in order to listen to headphones I have to unplug the 2.1 from the headphone jack and plug in the headphones. I tried a cheap splitter but that didn't sound good.

What I would like is something that had two jacks that allowed me to keep the 2.1 plugged in all the time in one jack and when I want to use the headphones I could just plug them into the other jack. I would like both jacks whether used together or solo to have the same sound quality as a single jack... with no degradation in sound.

Lastly, I would like to be able to mute the 2.1 (using volume control on the speaker set) and still get great controllable sound out of the jack that have the headphones plugged in.

Is there something like that? Thanks.

Hello I've bought my Lenovo laptop about half a year ago. From the very beginning the headphone audio jack had some problems, there would be no sound when headphones are plugged in, however restarting the laptop usually helped. I have not had this problem for a few months until now. When I plug in headphones, no sound comes out and restarting the computer does not help. Furthermore, the sound of the laptop speakers seems to be a big different than it normally used to be - the sound is a bit lower and so to say ''dimmer''. Please let me know I could fix it.

I'm guessing that it's probably just a compatibility issue... or just how it is, but I'm curious:

I updated my laptop from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro a while back. It started out as just a minor inconvenience, but it's getting to be very annoying. When I plug in my external speakers (via the headphone jack) or my headphones, Windows doesn't automatically switch the sound output to the headphone jack. I have to manually switch it ("Manage Audio Devices"). The same is true for the reverse, when I unplug my headphones.

Is there any way around this, or is it likely an issue with the compatibility of my sound card?

Please and thank you!

A:Headphone jack/on board speaker issue

Do you have the correct Windows 7 drivers for your Audio system? The XP drivers are not compatible and you need at a minimum Vista drivers as Vista and Windows 7 handle sound functions differently than XP.

On most newer "HD Audio" systems the jack is "auto sensing" and switches "logically". On many older PC systems that is a mechanical function with the jack.

There is usually a hardware switch in the socket, which is engaged when you put the plug in. Seems like it might be mechanically broken.

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 have Lenovo 3000 Y410 laptop having Windows 7 Home Premium installed on it. Realtek HD Audio latest driver is installed. But from the last 3 days, when I connect headphone through laptop, following things happen : -
1) Headphone connected popup doesn't show up.
2) Mic of Headphone connected pop shows up.



3) When I play video, sound coming from both headphone & laptop speakers.
4) When I mute sound by muting sound icon in taskbar, sound then comes only from headphone.





What I have tried?
1) Installed new Realtek HD Audio Manager.
2) Installed OS again.
3) Tried to change settings in Realtek Hd Audio Manager. But Nothing changes.

When I input headphone & mic jacks into laptop, & then check Realtek HD Audio Manager. The following image shows this : -


The green in realtek hd audio manager is for headphone & red is for mic. In the image, it is shown that headphone not connected & mic connected. But even headphone not connected shows up, sound coming form headphone.

I want to get sound from only headphone when headphone is connected. Is this a hardware problem ?

Please help....

A:Sound coming from both headphone & speaker but headphone is not detect

My Realtek HD Audio Manager has more options than yours.

Also, I notice you only have the microphone in the Recording Section of the Sound Panel. RIGHT click in an empty space in that Panel and then LEFT click Show Disabled and Disconnected devices. The Stereo Mix should be shown and you can enable that and make it the default Recording device.

Where did you get the RealTek driver that you installed? If you are not using the Lenovo supplied sound driver, get that and install it as a first step. I have a Lenovo Laptop and it has Stereo Mix and other functions. I haven't looked at the RealTek HD manager so I'm not sure what all it shows.

A:Stuck headphone jack

You could try using a paper clip to fish it out (MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF IF YOU START POKING AROUND INSIDE THE SOCKET). Unfortunately the socket is usually surface mounted to the edge of the motherboard. If you are handy with a soldering iron you could probably remove the socket and install a new one. Failing that it's "Dora the Explorer" for you!

Hello Jimco,
I have a Dell 5548 with a 1080p touch screen, Core i5 &12GB of Ram. After updating to windows 10 I have had a number of issues with this laptop.
1)The most annoying of all is that the speaker volume fluctuates from high to low at any given setting which is extremely frustrating. One time its loud then all of a sudden it reduces then a few seconds later its up again. Is this a hardware issue or a software issue as this didn't happen on windows 8.1?
2)The Headphone Jack is too tight. If I try too insert any earphones or headphones it will go in to a certain degree then i have to apply force but it still wont go in. If i try to apply more force it seems that it will break as there is a creaking sound. sound from the speakers isn't fine and i cant even use earphones :(
3) My laptop has a real sense camera and it just stops using its infrared sensors or depth sensors when setting up windows hello. It tells me to place my face in the centre of the screen and then no response even though i can see what the webcam is showing me. 
I hope you can answer my questions as it would be much appreciated.

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.

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.

Just some real quick ideas

Speakers plugged into power outlet and on
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.

Hello everyone.
Recently, my microphone (which is attached to my headset) stopped working.

I have this headset:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826153043

I have this motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131366

A few days ago, I updated to windows 7 64 bit. I installed new drivers when I did that, including audio drivers. The next day or so, I noticed my mic wasn't working.

I had gotten the new drivers from the Asus website (the motherboard manufacturer), and they were just an updated version of the old ones I had.
However, now, I am getting no input on my mic whatsoever. It recognizes that they are plugged in, but no sound goes through (my friends don't hear anything I'm saying). It's not a volume issue: no words are being transmitted whatsoever.

It could be coincidence - the headphone might have finally just broke on me, but I'm suspicious. I think the driver may have something to do with it. I tried reinstalling the drivers, but that did not do anything, I still have the same issue.

The driver is called "VIA HD Audio Deck." Like I said, when I plug it in, it recognizes the mic has been plugged in, but no sound is transmitted.

Do you guys think my mic is broken, and I should start shopping for a new one, or is it a driver problem? If so... what on earth should I do to try and fix it?

PS: Yes, the headphones still work, just not the attached mic.
 

A:Headphone mic will not work anymore :(

Is what ever software you're using set up to use the mic correctly? Some software you need to manually select where the mic is in the audio options.

So here's my story:

I decided to see if I could listen to music directly from my sound card instead of my speakers. I unplugged the speakers, plugged in my headphones. No go. So I plugged my speakers back in and then I couldn't hear any sounds from it. So I restarted my computer. This half-fixed the problem.

Now I only have sound from my left headphone/speaker. I have checked all the balances and they are normal. I do not blast my music.

I would be very thankful if someone could help me with this problem. Thanks.
 

A:Sound Gone From Right Speaker/Headphone

Welcome to TSG....

switching the speakers to the headphones could have caused a mismatch with the sound card circuitry since the resistance or impedance of the devices is greatly different and could have possibly made one or both sides not work. I would suggest turning-off the computer for a few hours and then plug the speakers back in and reboot it might be that just letting the circuitry cool off will fix it. If it still does the same thing I would have somebody look at it who is qualified to fix this type of circuitry.

Specs:
HP TouchSmart IQ506
Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
------------------------------------------------
About a year ago, my TouchSmart hard drive crashed, so I took it to FutureShop and had it replaced. I was able to put all of my data back on, because it was backed up, but i noticed that my audio did not work correctly. All they had done was put Vista back on to it, so I didn't have the TouchSmart software or Realtek HD Audio Manager like I used to.

Anyways, the main problem is that once I unplug my headphones, I cant use them again until I restart the program I'm using. For example, say I have my headphones plugged in and I start Firefox. The sound will play through the headphones just fine, and if I unplug them the sound will play through the speakers just fine, but when I plug them back in, the sound will continue to play through the speakers. The only way to get the headphones to work again is to close Firefox and reopen it with the headphones already plugged in.

What may be causing this and how can I fix it?

A:Headphone Jack Does Not Work Correctly

Hello and welcome to the forum.

When you bought the computer was the software already installed on the computer or did you install the software.

If you bought it with the software preloaded did you buy a set of recovery disk's also, if not you will need to get the recovery disk's or you can make a set if you have another computer to go to like maybe a friend. Here is a great tutorial...

I bought a new external IOMagic dvd burner. It is an external unit with 2.0 connection. The unit works fine and the PC speaker system plays great. Only thing is I like to watch movies at my computer and listen with headphones. The dvd burner has a headphone jack right on the front of the unit, but it doesn't work. Have tried two different headphones that I know work. Please help.
Thanks,
gary

I have had my computer, an Acer, for 6 months now. Today the speakers won't work. When I go to device managers it reads that the system is working properly; it also reads that the speakers are working properly.
I have tried updating Realtek, but there are no recent updates. I also tried disabling and enabling realtek, but that did not work. Any help would be appreciated.

Try reinstalling the audio drivers.

Hi,

I am using a HP envy x2 nootbook and running windows 8.1 x64 bit op. system. I just reinstalled windows and since then the headphone jack's are not working. Nor the one on the keybord part and nor the one on the tablet one. I used headphones with 4-conductor connector like my Iphone 6S headphone jack. As I assume my divice manager does not note anything wrong. Could it be a driver problem? Or a hadrver problem?

My computer was recently attacked by a virus. I had microsoft fix the problem but now my headphone jack doesnt work. The speakers work fine but when i plug in the headphones only the speaker plays sound. I went to "control panel> Hardware and Sound> Sound> Playback" and looked for the speaker/headphone icon but the only one that was there was speaker/HP I don't wanna mess with it till I know for sure. Is this the same thing or did it somehow get deleted in the mix. If it did how can I get it back on there? Thanks

I have a headset set with a mic. It has 3.5mm plugs for the mic and the speakers. Just recently they stopped working together. What I mean is if I have either one of them plugged in, that one works. If I have both plugged in, the sound manager appears as if neither of them are plugged in. I've tried other headphones with the jacks and get the same result. I've tried reinstalling the driver, doing a system restore and using CCleaner to clean my registry. I've also messed around with just about every setting in the audio manager. Anyone have any ideas? It's odd that they work independently, which leads me to believe that the insertion detection is working just fine.

I have a Toshiba Satellite R845-S95 with Windows 7.

Turn off the insertion detection on realtek. Top-right corner somewhere, from memory.

Hi Guys,
Facing a weird problem for a long time (3 months or more but got chance to google it today). Its a dell studio 1555 with IDT High Definition Audio Codec with windows 7 x64 Ultimate OS. I had to give a clean OS after a fatal crash and sound is giving a weird problem from then. No sound through my speaker;only through headphones. If I remove headphone then IDT setup options pop ups and I cant' work until headphone is there....

Downloaded the latest driver from dell's recommended site and still not good...
tried to uninstall and restricting the auto installation by windows from "gpedit.msc" and manual installation through the latest driver..yet nothing happened...
growing Mad...I know it is drivers problem but can't fix it...help me plz...

BTW: Systeminfo.exe shows two sound card
1) IDT
IDT High Definition Audio CODEC

2) Microsoft
High Definition Audio Device


Please help me out...please please...

A:No sound in speaker but in Headphone for IDT Codec

On a Dell you need to use the Dell supplied sound driver for proper operation. Delete the "Microsoft" which was apparently installed when you installed Windows. Go to the Device Manager and uninstall the Microsoft, just leaving you the Dell. Uninstall the Microsoft and then restart the PC and see if it gets corrected. Make sure your IDT sound card "Speakers" are set as the Default Playback device in the Sound Panel.

Why did you do a manual reinstall? There is a Dell recovery partition on the hard drive (or at least was when it was new), accessed by F8 at POST that would have restored everything to the original factory condition (and no discs or driver downloads needed). That is the best way to reinstall.

Hello,

I just recently encountered a problem with the sound on my desktop computer. As the title says, audio out of the right speaker or headphone is barely audible. It happened after returning back from school so there was probably some shaking of the computer during transit, I'm assuming this would have something to do with it. I'm fairly certain it's hardware related.

I've checked every audio setting that I'm aware of (driver software, Windows configuration, looked at the sound device properties in Windows hardware window) and can't find any reason for the low sound. All of the audio is balanced, Windows says the device is working properly, none of the configuration utilities indicate any sort of problem with the device. I've even tried playing with every setting I could fine, to see what effect it may have on the problem. Nothing really affects the problem in any way. I have also tried reinstalling the drivers.

I also have a front panel sound port that I can and have been using that works perfectly fine, though.

Here is my motherboard:

http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3257&dl=1#ov

The audio specifications according to that site are:

Realtek ALC888 codec
High Definition Audio
2/4/5.1/7.1-channel
Support for S/PDIF In/Out
Support for CD In
I realize that's really more of a list of features but I haven't been able to find anything more technical than that. Windows identifies the device that I'... Read more

Suddenly, out of the blue, plugging in my headphones or external speakers no longer automatically mutes my laptop's internal speakers. I guess it could be a problem with the headphone socket/jack, but sending it in for this would be a pain. Is there any way simply to disable the laptop speakers without having to open the laptop? I use the external speakers or headphones for sound anyway, so that would do fine as a solution. Any ideas anyone?

System info:

BIOS flashed, chip set and audio drivers updated to latest versions already.

Acer Aspire 1350

Realtek AC'97 audio

TIA
 

A:Simultaneous headphone and speaker sound

Welcome to TechSpot

Looks like either the jack has gone on the blink (unlikely), or one of its wires has come undone.
Either you open the laptop yourself and fix it by resoldering or replacing the jack one way or another, or send it in.
If it is still under warranty, the last would be your best bet. If not, it is cheaper to do a bit of DIY.
