Sound goes to laptop speaker after I plug in the headphones

As the titles says, even tho the headphones are recognized, the sound still goes to the laptop speakers. This happens every time I unplug them. To make them work again, I need to restart the laptop, but issue remains

Are you not able to switch the sound device from the system tray? I often have issues with my HDMI switching to the internal speakers and just switch it this way

Oh, I am. Thanks. But that doesn’t really solve the issue. Why does that happen?

I really don’t know, sometimes I can go for weeks without it happening other times it can happen several times a day. It doesn’t really bother me too much so I haven’t really tried to look for any answers.

the first thing is to open up pavucontrol, it can handle almost all common issues with audio…
