Thread: Hadphones became muted by themseleves

  1. #1

    Default Hadphones became muted by themseleves

    Every 5-20 minuets I receive pop-up system mesage like quoted below and my headphones become muted. I have to go to pulseaudio settings or to volume settings and to switch back to `Built-in Audio Analog Stereo` and to set `Port` to headphones. After this operation I'm able to enjoy music for several minuets before the next message about:
    The audio playback device Built-in Audio Analog Stereo does not work. Falling back to Built-in Audio Digital Stereo (IEC958).
    How to fix this?

    An 'auto-mute' function present and enabled perhaps? Anything returned by the following?
    Code:
    amixer -c0 | grep -i mute

    Simple mixer control 'Auto-Mute Mode',0

    That output answers that question (Looks ok)

    A power management issue perhaps?

    Hardware details please...
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/hwinfo --sound

    Post the output of
    Code:
    pactl list sinks|grep -i name
    Just a thought - Is the default sink set as desired?
    Code:
    pactl info
    *I'm just wondering (hoping) this might stop the fallback to some other sink, but pure speculation on my part.

    If necessary, we can watch the PA debug logging in a terminal window with
    Code:
    pulseaudio -k;pulseaudio --log-level=debug --verbose
    then perhaps we can catch what is happening explicitly when the headphone drops

    The log can be captured to a file if desired....
    Code:
    pulseaudio -k;pulseaudio --log-level=debug --log-time=1 --verbose > ~/pulseaudio.log 2>&1 &
    ,

    Actually I solved the problem after some googling. I've changed pulseaudio config for the headphones at `/usr/share/pulseaudio/alsa-mixer/paths/analog-output-headphones.conf`

    My headphones are connected to the front pannel so I changed
    Code:
    [Jack Front Headphone]
    required-any = any
    to:
    Code:
    [Jack Front Headphone]
    #required-any = any
    Don't know if this is configurable without superuser privileges

    Here is pactl info, if it is still relevant
