Volume Fluctuations Using Headphones

Postby Huggz on Fri Feb 08, 2013 12:19 am

I'm running LM 14 Mate. I'm having a bit of an issue when trying to use headphones. When I plug headphones into either of the jacks on my computer, my volume starts freaking out, crackling a bit and changing the volume back and forth between low and high. This does not happen when I use my speakers in either jack, only my headphones. I thought it might be an issue with the headphones, so I got a new pair and it's happening the same. When I go into the Pulse Volume Controls and watch the Output port, as soon as I plug in the headphones, port selections bounce back and forth, with the volume change, between Analog and Headphone. When my speakers are plugged in, it's set on Headphone, when nothing is plugged in, its set on Analog, but as soon as I plug in the headphones it starts bouncing around.

Any help would be great. Thanks!
