    This is my newish tablet Buy GoTab 6 inch Android 4.0 Tablet with Google Play and 4GB Storage from IdealWorld.tv yes, it's from a shopping channel. Because I didn't know if I would take to using one, I thought a cheap one to start off with. Is is fine for my current needs.

    With it came headphones (the ear plug type) and a micro jack. The sound from the tablet is quiet low, but audible. When I insert the micro jack, the sound goes off (as I would expect) but it doesn't come out of the ear phones. As these ten to be quite cheap, I'm wondering if I should buy another set. Is there anything else you can think of to get the sound through them. There is a button on the lead, but that doesn't do anything.

    What a prat!, I had used the wrong set of headphones, consequently had inserted the connector in the wrong hole (where have I heard that before?), with the correct headphone (earplugs) and the correct hole, the sound blasted forth.
