    Speaker/Headphone Issues

    Why do my PC's built in speakers play sound when my headphones are plugged in? I have had this issue on all versions i have tried. I am currently using 12.04.
    Thanks,

    Do you also get sound through the headphones ?? If not, check your sound settings. If you do, it could be your computer. My friends laptop did that and when checked, the earphone port was not connected properly internally. Good luck

    Yes I get sound out of the headphones as well. I doubt it is the audio jack itself because when I had windows installed on the same machine, the audio wouldn't come out of the build in speakers as well as the headphones at the same time. I had this problem previously on another computer and someone told me how to fix it. But alas I fail to remember what to do. Very Frustrating!!!

    Check your Sound settings. What is set at the default output device when the headphones are plugged in? Try manually changing between output options and check between each change.

    Same problem with my Acer laptop.
    With the plug in I not only get sound out of the headphones I still get sound out of the speakers. I can't get them to turn off which they did automatically when it was running windows.
    I'm watching this thread to see if there's any resolution.
    And yes..... I have checked and rechecked settings.
