Well... Sometimes ago I've bought a laptop Lenovo ThinkPad E555 with pre-installed Windows. I've removed Windows and installed Linux Mint 17.3. And now, sound through headphones does not work, only through speakers. I've tried different types of headphones: from Apple and from other producers. Combo jack does not work anyway.

In System Settings -> Sound I have only speakers.

My system info:

OS: Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64-bit
Cinnamon Version: 2.8.6
Linux Kernel: 3.19.0-32-generic

My lspci | grep -i audio looks:

$ lspci -v | grep -A7 -i audio

    Are the headphones muted in alsamixer , and what does the output of amixer -i -M -c 0 show ? – cesar Jan 19 '16 at 19:35
  • @cesar I've tried your command: alsamixer -i -M -c 0 and Shell said that this is wrong format. So, I've executed just alsamixer -c 0 and I've got: Card: HDA ATI HDMI; Chip: ATI R6xx HDMI; Item: S/PDIF. And I don't see headphones in alsamixer in general. – Andrew Chul Jan 20 '16 at 20:18

I fixed this by updating the BIOS from HTET35WW (1.07) to HTET51WW (1.23).
