    Default HTC Rezound: Headphone jack not working after Ice Cream Sandwich update

    When I tried to use my Rezound to listen to music this morning, the audio would only play out of the left side of whatever headphones/speakers I plug into the device. Verizon is shipping me a new Rezound, but I wonder if it's a software problem (updated to ICS yesterday.) Is anybody else having this problem?

    Two Rezounds upgraded to ICS via OTA, tried them both with Google Music, Winamp, and stock music player, all work just fine on both phones with headphones...

    I don't believe in coincidence, but I do believe in bad luck, think you had some on this one.

    Since you probably will anyway..factory reset.
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
    We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things,
    because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

    Jacks work ok here. Did ya pull the battery? Try different headphones? Clean like mentioned in the previous post? Factory reset may be next.

    I had the same issue. Turned out my headphones weren't plugged all the way in.

    I tried all of the things mentioned above before going in to Verizon. I guess it's just a hardware issue.

    I am having the same problem, I have tried using my car audio and headphone but it does the same thing. The music only comes out of the left side. Just updated to ICS a few days ago.

    I have had a very similar issue, I have an HTC Evo3d Sprint. I have not rooted the phone.

    Neither of the headphones I tested with have mic capability
    Headphone type, cheap walgreens 9.99 headphones
    Headphone type, sweat proof nike headphone

    Before the ICS Update:
    Speaker Audio works with stock video and music player as well as 3rd party software
    Headphone audio works with stock video and music player as well as 3rd party software
    No audio issues whatsoever

    Immediately After ICS Update:
    Speaker Audio works with stock video and music player as well as 3rd party software
    Headphone audio works only with stock music player, no audio through video player, no 3rd party software audio either

    Troubleshooting steps:
    Reboot the phone by pulling the battery out and putting it back in
    Result was the same as before, no audio on headphones, but audio was fine through stock music player

    Factory Reset with multiple reboots
    Headphone audio works fine with both stock and 3rd party apps...only for a few hours
    The workaround to get audio working on the headphones is the reboot the phone by pulling the battery out. A soft reset did nothing.

    Stock apps tested - all work with headphones
    Music
    Notifications
    Ringtones

    Stock app that did not work was Sprint TV.

    3rd party apps that I tested with - Only work for a short time after hard reboot
    Pandora
    MoboPlayer
    Angry Birds

    Any ideas on where the issue could be?

    I was having the same problem (music on the left side only). Got the problem fixed by changing the TTY setting (turned it off) under "Call" in the general settings. Might give that a try and see what happens.

    <3 This fixed my issue with only one side headphone playing. Settings> call>
    Cdma call settings> tty off.

    I knew it was a setting or software because all headphones worked fine on other devices, but only one side on the rezound..must have switched tty on after update. Yay sweet music again
