#StackBounty: #sound #dell #headphones #18.10 #xps No speakers available as soon as headphones are in Dell XPS 15

Bounty: 50

I am experiencing problems with the audio device on my Dell XPS 15. The differentiation between headphone jack and laptop speakers fails. When no headphones are plugged in the speakers work fine. When headphones are plugged in only they will work, but it has no effect to set the laptop speakers as output in the sound settings. They remain quiet whatsoever.

Is this a known problem? Any way to make both output types selectable while the headphone jack is plugged in?

#StackBounty: #18.04 #sound #hdmi #monitor #external-monitor Sound output randomly switches or turns off while connected via HDMI

Bounty: 100

I use Ubuntu 18.04. I have a monitor which is connected via HDMI to my computer. This monitor has a headphone input:

enter image description here

When I choose the HDMI/DisplayPort-Built-in Audio everything works as expected during only 3-5 minutes and after approximately that time the output switches to another one or just turns off while being selected. To overcome this problem I need again go to settings and select HDMI sound output. And then the same pattern repeats.

Worth noting that I see this problem (a random switching) only with HDMI output.

How can I solve it?
I tried to reinstall some packages (and reboot) but it didn’t help me:

sudo apt-get install linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils --reinstall

Bounty: 100

So I’ve just updated to 19.04 and my integrated sound card stopped providing the analog output sink, here’s pactl output:

~ $ pactl list short sinks
0   alsa_output.usb-Logitech_Logitech_Wireless_Headset_000D443A6F5C-00.analog-stereo    module-alsa-card.cs16le 2ch 48000Hz RUNNING
1   alsa_output.pci-0000_20_00.1.hdmi-stereo-extra2 module-alsa-card.c  s16le 2ch 44100Hz   SUSPENDED
2   alsa_output.pci-0000_20_00.1.hdmi-stereo-extra2.2   module-alsa-card.c  s16le 2ch 44100Hz   RUNNING
3   alsa_output.pci-0000_20_00.1.hdmi-stereo-extra2.3   module-alsa-card.c  s16le 2ch 44100Hz   SUSPENDED

I can still get the sound played on those sinks, but it’s either wireless headphones or my monitor speakers, which are crap.

At some point I managed to get back the analog sink back, I think by re-installing alsa, but after reboot it disappeared. Running acmd unload-module module-udev-detect && pacmd load-module module-udev-detect doesn’t seem to help either.

Any ideas?

I installed Windows 10 and Ubuntu in dual boot. Every time I enter Windows 10, the next time I boot Ubuntu, my headphone jack does not respond, that is, the sound only plays through the speaker. At this point, the configuration is displayed, showing that there is only one sound card, and I actually have two.

This problem appears on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and on 18.10. To get my headphones working after booting Windows and then Ubuntu, I have to turn off the computer and then turn on it. I can’t bear it any more. I think this may be caused by Windows 10 somehow removing the Ubuntu driver.

How can I fix this problem?
