First, do the tab's speakers work when you do not have the earphones plugged in? If not check the sound settings.

I know you said earphones work in another device. Just to prove things try a different set of earphones in your tab. If they don't work then your earphone socket is either faulty or has become disconnected off the board.

You could try just very gently moving the plug side to side or up and down while it is in the socket and see if you get any sound. If so it possibly proves a loose connection.

Hi Terry,

Under Settings > Accessibility > Hearing there are two setting you may wish to check.

Left/right sound balance: Set the device to adjust the sound balance when using a headset.

– Mono audio: Set the device to switch the sound output from stereo to mono when a headset is connected. Here is a link to the user guide scroll to p.95
