Headphone stop working when mic is connected.

Mar 28, 2018
Hi everyone on the community,

What's happening is that, at completely random moments, my headphone just stops working.
If i go checking what's wrong i can notice that Realtek app shows that mic is ok and working (I use a splitter, the one that came with my headset, in front panel), but the headphone green cable looks like disconnected, which would make me think of a contact problem.
The thing is, if i deattach the mic cable, then the headphone connection comes back up and the headphone starts working flawlessly. If i put the mic back in, headphones don't work anymore.

Any idea?
Thank you in advance.

Now that I'm looking at it, the main jack is a 4 conductors one, while the splitted ends have 3 conductors, both the headphone part and the mic one.
Could this be the problem?
