DV6 Headphone jacks are "communication headphones" only

The two Headphone jacks on my DV6-6135dx are set as communication headphones. The only way I can get them to output any sound, ever, is by manually setting Teamspeak to use them. The speakers on this laptop are okay, but what if I want to plug in some headphones to listen to music? Nothing I've tried works, this is pretty stupid.

Re: DV6 Headphone jacks are "communication headphones" only

I have the DV6-6C13NR laptop and it also did the same thing.


Earlier tonight I was screwing around with the s=different functions and I came across your answer without knowing it.

Here are the steps to fix it:

1go to start>control panel>sound

2 click on communication headphones and go to set default and make sure they are for communication

3 click on speakers and headphones and set them to default as default device

if that doesn't work, let me know.
