Sound Asus K70IJ Laptop 10.10 No Output from Headphone Plug

Asked by Dan Hunt on 2011-01-12

Built in speakers work only.
Updated to Version 10.10 via a fresh cd install and I kept home directory.
Plug in external speakers or headphones leaves built in speakers working and no output from headphones.
At a loss what to do next, I tried various fixes found via Google and this "Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)" to no avail.

If you run:

alsamixer

in a terminal, are any levels muted or low, if so then crank / unmute

Does that help?

Dan Hunt (dan-r-hunt) said : #2

Running alsamixer in a terminal shows nothing muted except the front microphone.

May work.

gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

add this line to the bottom:

options snd-hda-intel model=lenovo-ms7195-dig

Then save the new file, close gedit and reboot (easier)

Let us know how you go

ok then remove the line I suggested. You will need to scour the web for the line you need to add to make it fly. I'll see what I can find too but you get the idea. Something needs to go in alsa-base.conf to make it iok

Dan Hunt (dan-r-hunt) said : #6

 actionparsnip I have been scouring the web! Thank you for your efforts.

options snd-hda-intel model=laptop did not work either.

Dan Hunt (dan-r-hunt) said : #7

Is this related to a bug?

I reverted to Ubuntu 10.04.2 desktop i386 and 2.6.32-30-generic to get sound out of my laptop speakers. Plug in external speakers or headphones now shuts down built in speakers and no output from headphones jack. If I adjust the volume control the built in speakers come back on, still no output from headphone jack.

Any newer Kernel leaves the sound disabled.

zapyon (zapyon) said : #8

Hi Dan.

I have the same problem as you.
I am running Debian, previously squeeze (when it was testing), now wheezy. Short before squeeze became stable the behaviour of ALSA with snd-hda-intel changed: Before, without any special parameters for snd-hda-intel, everything worked fine, if in the ALSA Mixer the parameter "Independent HP" was set to ON. Then you could plug in headphones and have sound; headphones volume would be independent of speaker (Front) volume; but you had to turn down speaker volume manually which was a little annoying but might have advantages in special use cases.

Some time in March or April, after an upgrade, things changed: Now, while speaker sound was still working, headphones would be dead when Independent HP was ON; but working when Independent HP was OFF. Unfortunately, this means you always get speaker sound and headphones together and cannot switch off speakers when using headphones.

I checked this with a Knoppix 6.2.1 and an Ubuntu 11.04. Same as with Debian wheezy.

Also, I checked various "model=" settings for snd-hda-intel as listed here:
http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/audio_intel_hda using infos from http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Soundkarten_konfigurieren/HDA?redirect=no#Beispielkonfigurationen and from the files in /usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver; especially file:///usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver/ALSA-Configuration.txt.gz
, file:///usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver/HD-Audio-Models.txt.gz
, file:///usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver/hda_codec.txt.gz
 -- nothing helped.

The ALSA project has a script that helps to gather information about your sound hardware, modules + configurations for analysis: http://git.alsa-project.org/?p=alsa-driver.git;a=blob_plain;f=utils/alsa-info.sh

I assume that some change to the driver's code, probably to fix some other hardware compatibility issue, broke the working sound.

As you have reverted to Ubuntu 10.04.2, may be you get headphones to work by switching the Independent HP option to ON.

Regards

Andreas
