Yoga 370 mute speakers problem

Q: Yoga 370 mute speakers problem

Hi, I'm very happy with my brand new Yoga 370. Much nicer display than my old Yoga 12.Type 20JHStock Lenovo install of Win 10 Pro that I switched to Windows Insider/Fast Ring...Build 16199.rs_prerelease.170513-2252. No USB or external speakers/headset connected. When I press F1 the light on the key comes on, and the speaker icon changes to show speakers muted. However, any app or program that makes sound still makes the sound. So the speakers aren't really muted. This works just fine on my old Yoga 12 on the same OS build, same apps, etc. Any ideas? Thanks! Greg C

When i plug my headphones into the front panel creative console changes from 5.1 to headphones but it doesn't mute my speakers and auto mute speakers option is checked. Is this because speakers are through optical to a logitech z5500? Also is optical out the best way to send sound to the z5500's?

A:Headphones mute speakers problem

I have optical connection to a Z5500 too, didn't have a problem with a Creative card before and now an on-board Realtek.

Try changing console mode, un-check the option, try re-plugging and then check again. You can also try re-installing console.

I like optical, it seems clearer, fuller and louder (at least to my ears). One set back is if you are doing audio creation, then all the encoding and decoding induce latency in sound.

I have a strange issue with my Yoga 460; when I mute (either through via the hotkey or via Windows volume control), mute goes on for a fraction of a second (the light flickers briefly) then immediately unmutes. It was doing this before and after the Win 10 Creator's update. I was on the latest drivers according to TVSU; albeit since the creator's update TVSU seems to either be broken, or not finding any drivers. Any ideas?

A:cannot mute internal speakers

That's often caused by a faulty headphone jack on the laptop. When you plug headphones in, a spring-clip inside the jack is moved to one side by the jack-plug. This "breaks" the sound-signal circuit to the speakers. That spring clip is probably distorted or snapped.

I'm on my Phillips Laptop, and it's been through a bit of a saga after a failed installation of ubuntu, I had to do a clean install of windows xp sp3 and then get all the bits and pieces working again. The audio has been my biggest headache, and now this is the situation. After installing realtek ac'97 audio driver, and realtek HD audio driver, the sound came through speakers, hooray! Now whenever I plug in my headphones, the speakers don't mute. There is sound coming through both the headphones and the speakers. When I plug in the headphones, the realtek audio manager (which I would like to be rid of without losing my audio, but for some reason do this) recognises that the headphones have been plugged in with a popup, so sound comes through the headphones, but the speakers don't change volume at all. I've been looking round the internet to try and find a solution to this, to no avail. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the audio drivers countless times, going into audio properties and changing the speakers to headphones, nothing has worked so far. Really hoping someone here might finally have a solution.

Hello,

I have a new Twinhead Durabook D15TS running Windows XP Pro, with a Realtek audio device.

When I insert the headphone plug into the jack, my speakers continue to play. This defeats the purpose of headphones.

I called Twinhead (now Gamma Tech). The tech tested his headphones on a laptop identical to mine and it worked properly. This was no help.

I've tried 4 different sets of headphones, all do not mute the speakers. I've searched the web, and I can see this isn't a random problem, it happens quite frequently, and no one's been able to fix it.

I'm curious as to what the genius' here think. Thanks for your time.
 

A:Headphones don't mute speakers

There is a set of contacts inside the headphone jack that are supposed to disconnect the internal speakers when you insert the headphone plug. Your laptops jack may be defective or damaged...

A:Solved: speakers mute at random

It could be a problem with insufficient power at the USB ports if the speakers are USB-powered, a problem which doesn't affect speakers plugged into an internal sound adapter. If that is the problem, you can solve it by buying a mains-powered USB Hub which plugs into a mains power socket, then plug your speakers into the USB ports on the hub.

Mains-powered USB hubs are like this example: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Port-Mains-Power-Supply-Cable/dp/B002LPVO66

Just make sure a mains-adapter is supplied with it, as I've seen some which are mains-capable but no mains-adapter is supplied.

Hi

Usually when you connect headphones in sound properties > playback speakers should be off and headphones must be shown as active.
Connect the headphones and try to change these settings manually. Does it works properly when you do this?

THE QUESTION:
- How do I mute the laptop speakers while still getting sound out of my headphones? So even if I pull my headphones out, still no sound comes out of the speakers.

FOLLOW UP:
- As a laptop user, you know that most of the time we work in quite areas such as libraries. When you accidentally pull the headphones jack out, your music blasts causing a lot of unnecessary disturbance.

TECHNICAL DETAILS:
Dell Inspiron 5150, Windows XP, SigmaTel Audio C-Major.

IS IT POSSIBLE:
- YES. It was for the past 3 years until a few days a go. I say this because I used to achieve this by checking the 1 PC spk Mute checkbox under ADVANCED in the Volume Control panel. I recently had to reinstall the SigmaTel driver and now when I check the 1 PC spk Mute checkbox, It mutes EVERYTHING including the headphones.

WHAT I'VE TRIED:
- Rolling back SigmaTel driver: not possible since the original was uninstalled.
- Installing the SigmaTel driver from the dell website
- Installing the SigmaTel driver from the drivers CD
- Searching the net. Most results suggested checking the PC spk Mute checkbox, but as mentioned earlier, now it mutes my headphones as well.
Any suggestions are welcome and very much appreciated. Thank you.

Zach

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)

(Muting my speakers when my headphones are plugged in) I've managed to get them both working at the same time but due to the fact it's only detecting one of them i can't organize / change which programs use which.

I remember at one point in the past when using these that i selected ''Mute rear speakers when front pannel is in use'' but now i can't seem to find this option?

I've looked at a few forums that say ''Go into Device advanced settings'' and even seen a screen shot of someone pointing out that it's at the top right on the Realtek HD Audio Manager, but on mine that option is not there and nor can i find it!

As it stands right now, my Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Card will not allow me to plug in my headphones via the front panel of my desktop. (This makes sense, as the onboard audio solution was disabled upon installation of the card.)

Thinking that this would only be a minor setback, I purchased a simple Y audio cable that enabled me to plug in both the speakers and the headphones at the same time.

Unfortunately, this does *not* work as well as I intended. (It merely reduces the output of each, while simultaneous emitting sound. Nothing is muted.) Furthermore, it seems I can not get my card to actually *detect* the headphones. Whenever I insert them, it still tells me I have a 2.1 system installed.

Is there anything I can do about this?

A:Creative SB X-Fi: Speakers refuse to mute upon inserting headphones.

Have you tried changing the front panel headphone/mic jacks from the Integrated audio (connection on the motherboard) to a connection on the SoundBlaster? I know that is not possible on some factory PC's (older Dell's had this problem) but on others they have a standard HD audio connection on the motherboard and in those models you can unplug it from the motherboard and connect it to the sound card (in this case the SoundBlaster).

Check the Lenovo documentation on this model and see if there is a separate cable that you can move to the SoundBlaster.

If this is not possible, and you have an open 3 1/2" bay or a 5 1/4" bay (a CD drive bay) you can buy an I/O panel that will give you the headphone/mic capability from the SoundBlaster.

There should be adapters available at places such as www.newegg.com or www.compusa.com

I have a new Dell XPS 8900 I7 6700 running Windows 10 that is working fine. The only issue is; when headphones are plugged into the top headphone jack the external speakers do not mute. When I plug in the headphones a dropdown box appears “Which Device Did You Plug In” with the choices “Headphones”, “Front Speaker Out”, “SkullCandy Headphones”, and “Dell Speaker Out”. The “Front Speaker Out” choice is immediately highlighted. Now both the headphones and the speakers of my Dell A525 speaker/subwoofer both have full audio output. Now if I select the “Headphones”, “SkullCandy Headphones”, or “Dell Speaker Out” the audio of both the headphone and the speakers is muted.

Hi, recently I bought a new keyboard with multimedia keys
Model : Microsoft Wireless keyboard 1000
All the keys are working fine, I also installed the latest drivers and Intellitype Pro to the correct OS i'm using.
However, when I press the mute/unmute button, the volume bar shows up, but does not actually mute. It seems like it flashed the mute symbol for half a second but it still just stay unmute. I tried using the default Microsoft sound driver and the latest Realtek sound driver but still no luck.
I also tried turning HID services on and off but still the same
BUT, I remember the mute button WORKING until a few days ago.

I don't know if it is due to the Windows Update, or something to do with my motherboard driver or something else. The roll back driver option is greyed out in Device Manager so I don't assume that is the problem..

I'm currently using:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 1000
YAMAHA speakers YST-M15 (really old model)
Realtek High Definition Audio Driver 6.0.1.5859
ASUS M3A78-EM Motherboard

I'm really confused because if all the multimedia keys are working then it should not be a driver problem. If the volume up/down is working then it should not be speaker problem. It is ONLY the mute button that is not working.
Thanks in advance for any replies.

So I got my yoga yesterday and the situation is this: - No sound from speakers (if I check the volume bar, it actually goes up and down like if it was working)- Perfect sound if I plug in an headset I tried all I could: - Update drivers- Uninstall and reinstall original drivers- Install D/drivers/audio/setup.exe- Factory resetThis should cover all the solutions posted on this board. But still can't get it to play. Despite all, I'm quite sure it's just a driver/software thing and sending it back would be my last choice.What could I do?

I just bought a HP 9470m Ultrabook. 3 days ago, the hard mute button (next to wifi button) still works fine. However, I just updated BIOS today. After that, the button does not work at all. It does not mute. When I press it, it just shows the volume bar. It does not even increase or decrease the volume. Any one has the same issue and can suggest solution? Thanks,

Hello @bluesky141,  Please try to load defaults after going to BIOS, Tap F10 at the boot. Go to BIOS Page. Under MAIN Tab, click Restore defaults > Save changes and exit. See if that helps. If not reinstall drivers from the below link, restart after installing and check if that works.http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=5271102&swItemId=ob_130088_1&swEnvOid=406... Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

Hello Sorry for double topic, but I've marked the previous one as solved. It was solved but the problem reappeared. So, I have bought an exhibition yoga 500-14 with 8gb ram 256gb ssd geforce 940. Every some time I do something (for example opening a new tab in chrome) one of my speakers (randomized, usually left) make a weird loud pop noise. It also can be caused by opening fix sound problems or somewhat. Also, it only happens when the laptop is on battery. Help please!

I ordered my Yoga 920 from the Lenovo website on January 3rd and it worked fine. After a month of use, out of the blue, the speakers either made weird feedback noises or produced no sound at all. This alternated between restarts. I explained this issue to Lenovo support and the agent recommended me to let the Best Buy Geek Squad repair it under warranty. I saw I had two options, either return the laptop while before 30 days of the invoice date for an exchange or take a chance on the Geek Squad, and boy I made the wrong decision. I decided to let Geek Squad repair my laptop because I thought, "hey, they're professionals and with all their inspections, I'm sure to get a fixed laptop back." 1 month later, I got it back 2/26 with a paper stating the motherboard had to be changed but it passed inspection and it works. I started up my Yoga 920. The OS was wiped so I had to set it up again. Cortana is talking through the speakers which was a very good sign. After setup, I changed my volume to test the sound again, and the speakers were dead silent. Since the past couple days I have been trying to troubleshoot my issue. Windows couldn't be verified or updated. I reset the laptop, setting it up again gave me the option to update Windows, but on every startup there were 3 error messages, the tradeoff for an updated Windows. Whatever. Updated or not, the speakers were still not working after the first reset. I have tried the Windows troubleshooter and it tried different method... Read more

Hi, I've bought a Yoga 710 14" a few months ago, and this problem had persisted since I first got it.When I connect headphones through the headphone jack, wether they are headphone-mic combo or just headphones, the sound from the speakers still comes out. Headphones are working fine but I can hear from them and from the laptop speakers. Tried many tips online with RealTek HD manager, tried installing latest drivers. Can't seem to find the problem.In the Realtek HD manager when the headphones are connected they are shown as a microphone and not as a speakers. I'm pretty sure that's part of the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello I have been dealing with this issue for more than 6 months now and I have been trying all the possible solutions suggested on the internet, but nothing works for me.So my problem is the following: I have a Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro (Windows 10) and from the beginning my Realtek drivers did not work properly. Either the speakers did not work or the headphones were not recognized. Updating did not help.I then tried the option to run the computer with the default drivers by following these instructions: "Now, one thing to note is that you also need to disable the automaticdriver update from the "System Properties" ==> "Hardware" tab ==> "DeviceInstallation Settings" ==> Select "No, let me choose what to do." ==> Andthen select "Never install driver software from Windows Update." and ensure"Automatically get the device app and info provided by your devicemanufacturer" is checked. This will prevent the driver gets automaticallychanged by Windows Update after your next reboot." This worked in some extent. I could use both speakers and headset, but I had to switch manually between the two by going to the "Sounds" menu.However, after about 4 months, I started to get blue screens with MEMORY_MANAGEMENT errors and only enabling the automatic driver update from Windows Update again helped it. So this is not an option anymore and it was really annoying to switch it manually anyway. The problem is now that, after re-enabling driver updates from Windows Update... Read more

A:Yoga 3 Pro - Switch from headphones to speakers do...

It may actually be a hardware issue. The switchover shouldn't be handled by the software, just detected.
 
What kind of headphones are you using? Are they TRRS or CTIA? I've never used CTIA (Apple) earphones, but I have had systems configured for CTIA that didn't detect my TRRS headphones correctly. SHouldn't be an issue if the headphones only have 2 rings though (stereo headphones with no mic or in-line controls).
 
Have you tried installing the latest Realtek drivers? http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsview.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownT...

For a relatively thick laptop with a sizeable 15" form factor I expected much better speakers. The highs and mids are very anemic like the speakers are dying. I tried uninstalling dolby atmos and reinstalling the realtek drivers from lenovo's website but they still sound the same. It's painfully bad. It's so muddy, thin, and hollow it sounds worse than a free flip phone. I'm not expecting much but these are the worst laptop speakers to date and I've tried many laptops. It's so unbearable I can't even listen to simple voice podcasts. I use my phone speakers for that now. I really hope it is some strange software issue that can be fixed like the fan noise. I've owned other lenovo laptops like the thinkpad yoga 460 and also read that lenovo usually puts loud and full speakers even if they are on the front bottom. Kind of hard to enjoy the beautiful 4k screen with such lousy speakers.
