Okay this is a VERY weird thing, and might be pretty confusing, I'll do my best to explain it clearly.
I have a headset w/ microphone (logitech) for voice chatting online. When its plugged all the way in I can't hear anything, I have to back it out slightly then I can hear but the connection is not good because it's not"clicked' in and I have to hold it in the right place, so not a good solution.
I CAN hear out of it when listening to a song with it all the way in so i thought it was a stereo/mono issue. I.e. can't hear when listening to a 'sound recorder' file or yahoo voice chat but CAN hear when llistening to music.
I also have another set of headphones without a mic for listening on my mp3 player. These headphones DO WORK for BOTH types of files. The plugs are EXACTLY the same, both have two black bands, ( i.e. both are stereo headphones) i have even measured the two plugs and spacing of the black bands, bboth EXACTLY the same.
And I've also tried this on more than one PC, my laptop and desktop and it's the same on both machines.
One other thing is that the headphone/mic set DID work initially but then the problem started later and i discovered that pulling the plug out slightly made it work. And now lots of head scratching later i'm completely dumbfounded by this.
has anyone else experienced this or have any idea what is causing this? I rather not have to buy a new headphone/mic set.
thanks in advance!
