Make sure they're plugged in all the way (wiggle them and plug them in harder, turn, whatever), and failing that, right click on the volume control, and fiddle with the mixers-one might work better with your hardware than another.

Your jack sensing isn't working properly. You probably need to specify the model in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

There's also a chance you'll need a newer version of ALSA: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6589810#post6589810

More info is needed, like what kind of laptop or system you have and what audio codec it uses.

You did the mixers and all, or just playing with the cable?
As he said, updating ALSA may do you good.

try going through alsamixer and muting and unmuting all the items there. I once had a "headphone jack" or something that if left "unmuted" gave me the same problems you seem to be having.

I would say to update the ALSA drivers.
If you have a Conexant card, you can get updates here. (http://www.linuxant.com/alsa-driver/downloads-ubuntu-x86.php)
