Thread: Sound/headphone problem

  1. #1
    Default Sound/headphone problem
    Whenever I connect headphones to the iPhone, I don't get sound on em, instead the sound continues to broadcast through the speakers on the phone.

    I was wondering if anyone knows if it's just an option that's messing up or if there's something I gotta do to make the sounds reach the headphones instead of continuing to come out from the speakers whilst headphones are connected to the iPhone.

    -Additional info; The iPhone haven't been dropped on the ground/floor nor received any hits of any kind. Almost completely new. Sounds works perfectly fine with speakers but when I plug headphones in the sound continues to come out of the speakers instead of the headphones.

    I've also tried turning the phone off and on, and resetted settings, still no work. -

    Any help and replies will be appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Yes, the headphones work on computers etc, just when I connect them to the iPhone, instead of the sound being directed to the headphones it continues to come out from the speakers.

    If the sound is not even coming out of the headphone jack then the phone is not seeing the connection. A friend of mine is having the same issue with his. He needs to push the headphone jack in all the way and hold it to keep it working.

    Chances are the jack is busted. Take a look in the light to see if anything got into it and is not allowing your headphones to plug in all the way.

    Bring it to the Apple store. They should replace it if there is no sign of damage to the device.
