Ubuntu – Headphones don’t work after update


I updated to Ubuntu 15.04 from Ubuntu 14.10 a few days ago, and now my Logitech G230 headphones don't receive any sound. How can I fix this? PulseAudio Volume Control detects my headphones, and says they're working, but no sound comes through.

EDIT: Using alsamixer worked at first, but now it doesn't, and I get frequent bursts of static through my headphones now.

This is a temporary solution that works for me:

In Terminal type alsamixer, there is a volume bar for headphone. Switch in on by pressing M
