No sound with headphones

Post by adr59 » Tue 26 Sep 2017 09:58

Hello ! :)

I would like to know if I'm the only one who have no sound in headphones. The sound comes from the speaker, even with headphones plugged in. I tried another headphones, and I tried to configure Retropie like explained on a website (https://lofi-gaming.org.uk/blog/2014/04 ... -retropie/), but it does not work... :?

Any idea ?

Thanks, and have a nice day !

That problem sounds strange as the audio goes like this :
rpi 0 -> headphone connector -> amplifier -> speaker

When you plug a headphone set in the connector it stops the speaker.

So the headpone must receive signal if the speaker has sound.
Maybe the connector itself has a problem but it seems unlickely. Have you tried different brand of headphones? Maybe your headphone connector is not standard one?

Yes I have tried different brand of headphones like my smartphone's headphones (samsung), or a sennheiser. With the sennheiser, the sound from the speaker is decreasing a bit, but there is still no sound in headphones.

It's really weird...
