Lenovo a2107a stock, headphones do not bypass speakers
I bought this tab a couple years ago for my wife to use as a reader. Lately she has been reading an ACTUAL BOOK and leaving the tablet at home. This week, while my kids were on winter break and monopolizing my laptop and other devices, I was using the tablet to watch netflix and stream movies from my WLAN. My youngest pointed out, mid Nightmare on Elm Street, that she could still hear the movie even though I had my headphones plugged in. It was then that I realized that the audio was continuing to play through the external speakers while also playing through the headphones. The rom is stock. I did install the MX player and codec to stream the mp4's, but I have not otherwise monkeyed around with the system.
I used a couple of different sets of wired headphones and tried netflix and youtube, and also manually setting the tablet to silent mode, but none of these things fixed the problem. It would seem to me as if there is a driver missing. I'd like to avoid a factory reset if at all possible, unless it would be a guaranteed fix.
This seems like the type of problem which someone with a moderate understanding of the droid os might be able to solve using just their own knowledge base. I'd appreciate any insights.

Reason: MX player, not MK player.
