    Default My M8 thinks I have headphones plugged in but I dont?

    Hello everyone,

    I've had my HTC One m8 for a few weeks now, love it by the way, and just today I noticed that the headset indicator in my title bar is there and when I tried to make a call I couldn't hear anything unless I put it on speaker.

    Has anyone heard of this issue and maybe how to fix it? I've already cleaned the aux port, rebooted my phone several times, and I just got done doing a full reset. Any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Try cleaning out the headphone jack. Something could be in there, causing it to think it's plugged in.

    I blew it out with some canned air and took a cotton swab to it, but still no luck.

    Did you reboot properly, either by rebooting with fastboot disabled or by powering off for a few seconds?

    Try plugging in headphones and then unplug them. Try it a few times if it doesn't work the first time. Hope it helps.

    If the above doesn't work, factory reset usually fixes almost any problem.

    I tried the factory reset the other day, but it still doesn't work. I'm likely gonna go in to the store to get it replaced.

    Take it in for a replacment, Its the only thing you can do. It's a known issue.

    I had the same problem.To be totally sure, use the "HTC Guide"app and access phone diagnostics. Also you'll know for sure because in Settings it will allow you to toggle HTC Boom sound normally only possible with headphones inserted.

    You have a 30 day Early Life Failure (ELF) replacement option so ring HTC customer service in your region ASAP and log it. With the app mentioned above can even arrange for a tech to remotely interrogate your phone to verify ELF and expedite replacement.

    I am a VzW rep and had a similar issue with a customers G2. Update all apps on the play store. Sounds weird but their was a conflict that the updates fixed it!
