the previous Fujitsu model create speaker playback volume and switch at node 0x09

- HDA_CODEC_VOLUME("Speaker Playback Volume", 0x09, 0x0, HDA_OUTPUT),
- HDA_BIND_MUTE("Speaker Playback Switch", 0x09, 2, HDA_INPUT),

do pulseaudio mute pcm playback switch ?

Hi Raymond,

Thank you for your continued support with this.

I have amended /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf so that the last line now reads

options snd-hda-intel model=generic

and this seems to have got the laptop speakers working but I have lost the headphones. If I change the model type to something else, I can get headphones back but then lose speakers.

Regards

Peter

if model=generic this may mean that node 0x10 is the internal speaker

use model=auto and early patching to fix the pin default of node 0x10 to 0x901701f0 [Fixed] Speaker at Int

and reboot

you can also use hda-jack-retask to fix speaker and make those pins (e.g. CD, AUX) as [N/A]

you need to follow up this thread if it is a regression

Last night I tried booting from a fresh 12.04 CD - audio all works fine. Tried booting from the latest 12.10 CD and no sound from front speakers. Not sure if this helps at all? Peter

did the speaker playback switch has any effect since node 0x09 don't support mute?

did auto mute work when you plug the headphone ?

Peter Golden (peter-golden) wrote :

On 12.04 the speakers and headphones appear in the audio control and both work at the same time unless I manually mute one or the other.

On 12.10 only the speakers appear as Digital Output (S/PDIF) built-in audio until I plug in the headphones then they are both there until I unplug the headphones again. Test Sound (Front Left/Right) only works with the headphones.

On 12.10 the headphone socket on the front of the laptop has a red light lit up which I have never seen before (have been running Ubuntu for 5 years on this machine).

Thanks

can you post the output of alsa-info.sh after reboot ?

does it create the speaker playback volume and speaker phantom port at node 0x09 ?

amixer -c 0 contents

did the headphone Jack kcontrol change to on when headphone is plugged ?

post of the output of hda-jack-sense-test when headphone is plugged and unplugged

or

use hda-verb to test the Jack sense or impedance with SET_PIN_SENSE and GET_PIN_SENSE

the red light is the optical output shared with headphone Jack since the previous Fujitsu model only set up the analog playback did not set up the digital playback

Raymond (superquad-vortex2) wrote :

you can turn off the red light by mute iec958 switch

you can use hda-jack-retask to retask the node 0x10 to internal speaker

can you post the output of alsa-info.sh when using model=generic ?

Hi Raymond, here is the output with model=generic Peter

When I use the generic model the Headphone is not detected when I plug it in - I only see analogue speakers which work OK. I did try adjusting the amp out value to 0x40 but it did not make any difference (I assume because the headphones weren't seen).

The microphone was detected by the way (I have headphones with a mike as well).

If I set the model back to auto, the headphones work again but the speakers don't (this time they show up as Digital Output (S/PDIF).

I also noticed that the microphone does not work with model type auto

you can compare the headphone with jonathan 's codec info of Kernel release: 3.3.5
