    I have an hp laptop, and I have recently noticed that the headphone
    jack doesn't work. I hear no sound when I plug in headphones. The
    speakers do however work. Does anyone have an idea what the problem may
    be or how I could fix it. It is no longer under warranty.
     
  2. You have, of course, checked with with a set of known-to-be-good
    headphones? A broken cord wire in, or near the _plug_ of the headphones
    would be my first guess, My second guess is a broken solder joint
    on one of the connections of the on-board headphone _jack_. A final
    guess would be a defective headphone jack, itself.

    Do the speakers shut down when you plug the headphones in?

    I won't see your Google followup. But, maybe someone else will help
    if you supply further innformation.

    Might check to see if it is muted in software or
    disabled.

    I have tried with multiple known working headphones. If it is either a
    broken solder joint, or one of the connections of the on-board
    headphone jack, or if the headphone jack is defective, do you know how
    I would be able to find out if it was either of those cases?

    Thanks for your response
