Yoga 2 Pro - Headphone Jack Problem!

This is an odd one...


I have a Yoga 2 Pro, which has served me very well for over a year now.


But very recently I have encountered a problem now.


The computer thinks headphones are plugged in all the time now! No sound will come out of the speakers, despite all the windows 10 software telling me that there is no problem, and that the speakers are the only outlet. Even the sound controls recognises sound (the equaliser rise and fall).


Sound works perfectly when the headphones are plugged in. And even more recently, the notification that goes 'Information: you have just plugged/unplugged a device into the audio jack' is now alternating andspamming my laptop every once in a while, with sound coming in, and then turning off, with nothing in the jack!

Any advice would be welcomed, as I have trawled the internet to find a solution, yet have come up empty handed.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !


I'm not an owner of your model, but one thought came to mind.  Possibly the contacts inside the headphone port are sticking thus the machine thinks the headphones are always inserted.  Try repeatedly inserting and removing the headphone plug to see if the problem will clear.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro - Headphone Jack Problem!

Did you ever get a resolution to this issue?


I'm having the exact same problem and I've tried everything I can think of. I've rolled back to older drivers. I tried repeatedly inserting and removing the headphone plug in the jack. I've even gone so far as to replace the portion of the motherboard with the headphone jack and I'm still having the problem. I've had to constantly use headphones or a bluetooth speaker to get around it. Very frustrating.

I cleaned the headphone jack by detaching the back cover and took out the small broad. Sprayed the jack with more electronic parts cleaner inside and outside. The speaker now works normally

And we're back...
