My headphone jack glows with a red light
After accidentally pulled my headphones out too fast and now the red optical out light is shining in my headphone jack.
Ive tried everything to try and fix it, like a tooth pick on the bottom of the optical switch but nothing happens.
Could there be a way of disengaging the head phone jack but fixing the built in speakers, because i never use the head phone jack.
Or a software that fixes the optical out light?
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
I tried all these solutions, and nothing worked for me. I've looked with a magnifying glass and there's not much going on in there. Mine was strange too. The red light was on, but I was still able to switch between sound types, but the headphone sound was really scratchy.
In the end I just bought a USB audio interface for $10, which as a workaround, works just fine. I plug my speaker system into that.
Just want to put it out there, that there are also optical to analog converters for not too much money, so if you're really stuck, you can do that instead of forking over big cash.
