HP DV6 no headphone audio

I have a HP Pavilion DV6.

The headphone jack works (confirmed via another OS), however in Dev1 I get no sound from the headphone jack. Speakers work fine. When I plug headphones in the speakers are muted.

Have tried to adjust with Alsa Mixer, no luck.

Also, when I use the mixer in Mate (right click on sound icon in "notification area", go to "sound preferences", even when I have programs running that are playing sound it shows as "no application is playing sound" when I view that tab.

Suggestions on where to begin digging?

Laptop HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC (WX054PA#ABG)

Audio devices :
Redwood HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 5000 Series]
5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio

Thanks in advance for your help.

Plug the headphones in and post the output of

pacmd list-sinks

Also check the dmesg output after plugging them in to see what the kernel is doing.

pacmd list-sinks
No PulseAudio daemon running, or not running as session daemon.

dmesg gives no change (same things listed)

Hi Olav,

It appears not to be running.  Maybe I should leave it that way! smile

I'd much rather have not have anything by Pottering on my system if I can avoid it! smile (but I did not remove Pulse, the system is as it was during install with a few packages I prefer to use added eg Waterfox and Xiphos)
