Thinkpad T440 : Speakers not working only headphones

Hi,

 

I am facing a problem with a Thinkpad T440, there is no sound! it is looking like the speakers are not working, but when i plug in the headphones the sound come through the headphones.

 

I upgraded the drivers, tried to reinstall the OS but unfortunately nothing helps.

 

Thus, i disassembled the laptop and tried to figure out where the problem is? i find out that the speakers are working! I tried other speakers and the same thing happening > no sound

 

I tried to plug/unplug the headphones jack connector many times but without success

 

the headphone jack is apparently good at first sight!

 

Did anyone face the same issue that i am having?

 

Thanks in advance for help

Go to the Realtek audio control panel.

At the top right, there should be a Device advanced settings. Click that.

Make sure the playback device is set to not present speakers and headphones separately.

Re: Thinkpad T440 : Speakers not working only headphones

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate your help Smiley Happy I tried this but it didn't help me

 

But I fixed my problem, I was increasing/decreasing the volume from the tool bar it wasn't working! I but I could see the waves when I put some music playing and no sound nothing was coming.

 

So I tried to deactivate the volume from F1. After that I increased the volume from the toolbar and hopefully it was working! so i figure out that the F1 and the sound card wasn't really syncing.

 

Thank you for your time and help
