Hello. I use headphones with my PC, they plug into the back in the middle green socket. Lately they only work on the left, but if I leave them only half-plugged in, both work. I would appreciate some help...

UPDATE: There's one program that works with audio in both speakers even when the cord is fully plugged into the socket.

One possible reason for the problem at hand is your onboard sound port is faulty or damage basing on your first post. It could also be a loose soldering or corrosion buildup on the part or area. If its a software issue installed, check the last installed updates or audio enhancement softwares, codecs, media players that could have made changes to system sounds normal settings.

How would I check the codecs? That's the only one I'm not certain about.

They are usually installed and can be found in Add or Remove Programs. Most popular are Klite Codecs.  About media Codec It might only be a straightforward solution considering that its a hardware problem as already suggested.

Everything seems to be in check, and the FixIt says it has an error and can't continue.

There's one program that works with audio in both speakers even when the cord is fully plugged into the socket.

 

Is it consistently working on playing audio on media players using the speaker? If yes, then the problem might be on the socket/cable of your headphones itself.

The program isn't a media player, and yes it always has sound in both sides, but no media player or other program does..

Have you tried the RPG forums for this particular issue? It might be a software conflict/settings with your current program installed.

Oh no, I didn't think of that. Although I'm not certain, but I think this may have started before it was installed. And, I also think I heard when it went out, I was listening to the Windows Media Player, and when I started, both were working, then at some point, I realized only one was.

Try using free Winamp/VLC and see the output performance on different audio formats. A sound driver reinstall or update would also be an option.

Well what do you know, Winamp had both speakers working and now the whole thing does.
