How to disable headphone jack!

Okay so my sisters laptop is a HP Compaq 6720s and the heaphone jack has basically caved in i don't know how she has done it!


So I'm wondering if there is a way to disable the jack so it will play through speakers as it istn't showing anything is plugged in to the jack but it still isn't playing sound!


Thanks for any help!!

Re: How to disable headphone jack!



I've never tried this as a solution to this problem, but you could try disabling the headphone output device in the playback device manager.

  1. Right click the speaker icon in the tray and click playback devices.
  2. Right click and show disabled devices.
  3. Right click the headphone output and disable.
Let us know how it goes!

Re: How to disable headphone jack!


I have tried that method but my laptop does not give any disable headphone or audiojack option. It's a HP 2000.

How does one then manualy disable the audio jack and let the sound output through the internal speakers ?
