    I am hard of hearing so the little speakers on the Vizio were barely audible to me but my wife could hear them fine (she has normal hearing). I bought an external amplified speaker that fits in the headphone jack so we could both enjoy movies.

    After a week or so, now there is no sound coming out of Vizio speakers except notification and alarm sounds (which I might assume are coming from another speaker inside the unit).

    I tried all the sound setting with no luck. I am thinking I might have damaged the headphone jack so that it "thinkks" there is a headphone plugged in and bypasses the speakers. The headphone jack works. But I don't want to always have to rely on the plug in speakers.

    ANy suggestions?

    Thanks
    Ed

    I am having the same exact problem with my Vizio Tab! Can you tell me if you have had any solutions to the problem?

    If it "thinks" a headset is plugged in, try an app called SoundAbout in the Google Play store. It was originally created to ignore those unwanted headset plug in signals.
