If I move it, either plugged or unplugged it doesn't work. What could be the problem? lotvic 16:10 28 Nov 2016 Not making contact properly, could be either the socket or the plug. Try different headphones, if still same fault then I would suspect the socket on pc. You didn't post a photo... wee eddie 16:27 28 Nov 2016 Headphone Jacks, both Mono and Stereo, have to be fully inserted to make the correct connections. If the Headphones also have a Mic, on the same Jack-plug, it will have even more segments and will need careful positioning if you are using that type with a Standard Jack Socket Fruit Bat /\0/\ 17:03 28 Nov 2016 Very probably a combination Headphone / Mic socket as modern pC/ laptops are nowadays you could always get an adaptor This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
