Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad 600 E Notebook ?

I can't get my speakers to work. I have to use headphones to hear sound. Can you help me to know how to get my speakers working Thanks


Answers :

Hmm, sounds like either the speaker/speaker cable/speaker connector) developed a problem (not very likely as the parts are rather solid) or the headphone socket connector is damaged or is beginning to lose contact with the motherboard. If it's just a matter of the socket desoldering itself from the motherboard then the solution is relatively easy - you need to re-solder the socket. This involves stripping the laptop as you would need to get to the bottom of the motherboard. 600E is relatively easy to dismantle (most thinkpads are :)
Also, the headphone socket has small "switch" where if a headphone jack is inserted, it disconnects the internal speakers. In some cases the "switch" gets stuck in that position and you end up with speakers disconnected regardless of whether the jack is in or not. In any case, it's a pain to fix and involves either replacing the socket or stripping the socket.
Well-good luck :)
Hope this helps.
