    Headphone jack wont detect headphones being plugged into it.


    I've updated every audio related driver I can find and searched for help for literal days and I can't find a solution that works.

    This issue started one morning for seemingly no reason. There was no windows update or anything unless it was just a background one and all of a sudden no headphone would be detected in my 3.5mm headphone jack. I tried to use the troubleshooter but it said that it couldn't continue troubleshooting until I plugged in the headphones, but they were plugged in.

    Any help and suggestions would be much appreciated. Please, its been 3 months now, I need headphones.

    :)

  2. Headphones Not Detected

    Wasn't sure what topic to put this under.

    Windows 10 refuses to detect my headphones from my headset. The mic is fine. The computer even recognizes when I plug the headphones of the headset in. But it refuses to detect them. I can go into my Sound in Control Panel all day, and there will NEVER be any
    headphones in that list. So, no, I cannot click headphones, just making that clear before someone suggests clicking on headphones.

    How do I force Windows 10 to detect the headphones that I have plugged in, so that they will work? The jack is working fine. When I plug them in it gives me the pop-up letting me know that I plugged something into the jack. But that's the end of it. It will
    not detect the headphones. Nothing comes out of them. There are no headphones in the Sound list. There is nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Why does it register something is plugged in and then refuse to detect it?

    Someone please figure out why Windows 10 simply cannot detect headphones and help me fix this so I can use my headset.

    Headphone jack goes in hard..

    I feel kinda silly asking this question but I don't really know where I would ask it other than in this forum.

    I have a pair of OneOdio headphones that I like wearing and listening to music while I'm browsing the Internet.
    The jack end (3.5mm plug?) that goes into the headphone jack of my speakers goes into that tiny hole kind of hard I think. It seems that I have to give it a pretty good push to get it to go in all of the way. And it's not a smooth push either!
    There is nothing on the jack end of the headphones nor is there anything in the hole of my Logitech speakers that the headphones plug into.
    I get the same results when I plug the headphones into my police scanner's headphone jack-it goes in kind of hard.

    So.......I was wondering if there was something I could apply to the 3.5mm plug on my headphones that would "lube up" that plug and make it go into those holes easier?

    Does anyone have a suggestion that would work but not cause the 3.5mm plug to get "gunked up" after awhile or gunk up the headphone jack hole in my speakers or police scanner?

    The only thing I have here that I use to lube up o-rings is clear silicone grease but I'm not sure if that would work or not.

    Thanks,
    Steve in Central Vermont

    Front panel jack doesn't detect Headphones

    Hi,

    In the previous versions of Windows, this feature is auto detected. To better assist you, please answer the questions below:

    • Have you tried connecting a different headphones to the front panel jack?
    • Did the PC detect the headphones when it was connected at the back panel jack?
    • Did you encounter an error message, when the headphones are connected to front panel jack?

    We'll keep an eye out for your reply.
