I have had my computer for about 4 months now. I've always been able to plug in my headphones and listen to whatever I wanted to. However, today I plugged in my headphones and audio would only play from the left speaker. I was extremely confused by this because I was just watching a YouTube video on my phone with the headphones, but they stopped working after being plugged into my computer. I've looked at all my audio settings and found nothing wrong that I can see. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling my audio drivers, but the audio is still broken. Please offer any insight you can into this. Thank you
Yes, I tested the headphones multiple times with different tablets and phones I had. I also tried different headphones/earbuds on my computer and the result is the same. Right speaker doesn't work. My desktop only has the front audio jack
I believe americanaudiophile is right. If I pull the headphone plug out of the jack just slightly, both speakers begin working again. I would be fine living with this, but the quality is absolute garbage, and I can barely hear anything. Thank you for the help, but I'm not sure it's something I can fix.
