    I have a brand new galaxy young 2 smartphone and having the same problem. The only way I found to make it work - these smash your phone few times and miracle will happen does not occur to me - is to connect it with an old NOKIA headset wich has a button on it (supposedly to turn on but usally I only use it to listen to music and it did nothing with my previous phones while listening). As I hold the button pressed it works beautifully! If I release pressure it gets back static again. My only hope is to press it as long as I can

    I thought that somebody with a lick of sense should mention that banging your $400 phone is Not a "fix." It's a workaround at best. Yes, it does work, for a little while. But then it comes back, and you have bang your phone again. And if you bang it too hard, or in the wrong spot, you'll break something. Like the glass lens cover of your camera, for example.

    I got so sick of this sudden and horrible sound distortion issue on my HTC One m7 that I bought another used HTC One in good condition, and swapped my motherboard into it. Incredibly, that didn't fix the horrible distortion problem. Or the awful camera issue of that pink/purple tint on the pics it takes in sub-daylight conditions.

    So both problems are on the motherboard - probably a software issue. But nobody I've found so far has delved into the program files of their rooted phone, so it's anyone's guess where the settings are screwed up (and my ROM doesn't have the mixer_paths.xml file that some people have edited to solve this rotten headset audio problem). It seems that the per-amplifier software is over-amplifying the signal, because the distortion persists at even the lowest volume settings...Very frustrating...

    Hopefully someone will -actually- solve this problem, which seems very common in this phone (almost as common as the photo tint problem), because banging on it is a dumb idea and an impermanent workaround.

    I've been having the same problem with my AT&T Galaxy Note 2 also. I just read what all of you did to remedy this headphone jack problem. Right after reading it, I actually punched it several times (lightly though) and now real audio, not static noise, comes through the earbuds! Thanks guys!

If so for health reasons you may not want to put them in your ear but hold them up to your ear to see if the static is being produced, I often hear of this happening when headphones/earbuds other than those that came with the phone are used. Sounds silly, but I would try them if you have them.

    Sometimes cases will prevent one from connecting all the way until hearing that click.

    You could try factory reseting the device as well, not much to lose and may help resolve the issue. Also, is this happening when on both 3G and Wifi? I have heard of cases where static occurs while connected via Wifi but streams perfectly when using 3G. Result, Wifi overload from what I am told.

    Just thinking out loud in attempt to help, I hope everything works out for you.

    Yes I have to keep pushing until the scratchy noise no longer comes again, then minutes later it comes back again! Should I change the whole motherboard? I slent spent over $70 just to keep fixing my headphone jack (fixed it 3 times) and there's still that problem. I need the headphones because I workout, walk to school, etc. Please help! Should I go to a mobile store and tell them to replace the motherboard? Or are there any other solutions? I tried all the things the poor guy told you about. What's next?

    Exactly how hard did you guys bang the phone on your knees? I've tried but it's still filled with static. I can hear the song, but it's soft and static.

    I'm writing and registering only thank for the smart solution!
    I've been trying with my Note 2 almost 6 months for the sound issue because sudden distortion and zzzz voices. Tried lots of custom, official ROMs but no joy..
    I've come across here by googling and read that solution.. Can't believe knee tactic worked!
    Thank you all thank you!

    Thank you for that tip, I used the palm of my hand in the area near earphone jack and I can listen with my earphones for the first time since I received my phone. Thank you everyone.

    Don't beat on your phones!! I had the same problem, along with horrible GPS reception. I saw the post about the missing screw, and looked inside mine - the same screw was missing, just below the camera. I moved one of the side screws to that location, and tightened several others that were loose. Works like new now!!
