No sound in headphone's jack, but I do have sound in Speakers


Hi all,

I've installed the Fedora Core 2 recently, on my laptop, and I surprisingly have sound in the laptop speakers, but not in the headphones.

I googled around, but nothing appeared for the headphone's jack. Loads of things for the sound, which is not muted (Neither are the headphones), but I still get nothing.

Then I come to the point that I might not be using a proper driver. My friend Google seems to tell me that ALSA is a good driver, but there's a "OSS", and some others on my machine too. What are they? Are there many sound drivers, and we're just supposed to be lucky in picking the right one? How do we test if a driver is appropriate for our hardware?

Well, loads of questions, I know, but back to my main one: Why no sound in the headphones ?

Thanks

@+ Daz

Yes, man,

I've tried the headphones, in another place, they work fine.

If you meant the jack : that's my point, I'm trying to make it
I suspect it to be hardware related, since I get a proper sound in the speakers

No sound in headphone jack

If you're using ALSA, type 'alsamixer' at the shell prompt. Use the arrow keys to go to the Item labeled Headphone. Press 'M' to unumte. Adjust the volume. Hope that helps.

Whats the point of these title thingys?

just had a fiddle with alsa mixer myself.

Alot of the settings depends on what type of soundcard your using.
Sometimes there is sound coming out of the headphones but its drowned out by your pc speakers. Hehehe.

Anyway, I found my headphones volume was located at "AUX" in alsamixer.
I had to lower or mute 4-Chan to remove the pc speakers.
Then play about with the other volumes til I found the one that controls the headphones volume.
Don't forget to leave master volume at a reasonable level as this controls the volume to your headphones aswel!
Don't mute master volume thinking that just controlt he pc speakers.

If this ain't the problem then I can't help you.


Kho.
With linux the solution to the problem is always the most bleedin' obvious.

Also having problems

I have been having problems with sound not playing on some YouTube videos but not others, so I tried to play around with alsamixer, but i did not get any response from the headphones except static when I turned on the internal, but still no actual sound.
