Speakers and headphones playing at the same time

Recently I've occurred with a problem. But I don't know how to fix it. My speakers are playing at the same time when i plug in my headphones. So there's audio coming out of both. How do I fix this?

Re: Speakers and headphones playing at the same time

Hi Shabirah1997 ,



Welcome to the Community Forums. 


Step 1: You may try to set default initially to get back the previous settings. Similar steps on this article .

Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Playback tab > Set Default at the bottom > Apply 


Step 2 Smiley Very Happyoing a reset on command prompt :

Click on start and search for CMD , right click to run as administrator . type net stop AudioSrv  

then  net start AudioSrv 


Step 3 : Jumping back to previous working date with System Restore


Step 4: Rollback / Uninstall and Reinstall audio drivers from D:/Lenovo /Drivers folder or download from support site.



See which one works for you best.

Re: Speakers and headphones playing at the same time

I would suspect the headphone plug. Since once inserted all the way it is suppose to mechanically disconnect the sound from the speakers.


Did it ever work with them?


Try a different set of head phones and be sure its in all the way.
