    Have you checked your settings for headphones, Speaker etc and what you have set to come out where or not to?
    Is there somewhere in the settings for this? I updated to Kit Kat last week and I can't get sound to play through the head phones. Tried cleaning with a tooth pick and with compressed air but that hasn't helped.

    Fixed: Mine not working since last night's update either (4.4.2)...same headset, worked before the reboot, after update did not. Couldn't see any lint when shining light in there. Used toothpick and some lint came out, now it works. Thinking the update doesn't let headset work with standard grounding...either way it was lint.

    That's crazy. Same exact issue for me. Just did a Google search and this forum thread came up. Sure enough, I took a paperclip, poked inside and scooped out along the side wall of the audio jack port and a huge plug of lint came out. Worked perfectly after that. Thanks for the solution!

    My jack has no lint and all that omes out of the headphones is static, but not all the time. Sometimes it works like a charm and then it will randomly stop. Well actually it usually will start if I turn my phone off or it restarts, but usually it is random

    i have a galaxy nexus and the sound only plays out of the left ear yet if i pull the plug out halfway it plays out of both ears , i tried the air , the alcohol swabbing and the poking around with a pin anything else ?

    I was noticing this problem at school so when I got home I used a micro flashlight to see that there was , in fact a lent ball. Must've came from from my pocket. Shaking it didn't work, my moms earrings didn't either. What I ended up doing is getting a Cotton Swab and cutting it with scissors at a diagonal angle then repeatedly digging in and scraping in the direction of the lent ball. At first only small strands of lent were coming out but After 15-20 scrapes it all fell out. Thanks!

    My headphone jack appears to have stopped working. When I plug headphones in, music still comes out of the phone speaker. I tested a second set of headphones to confirm it's the phone. I was wondering whether this has happened to anyone else, and whether they were able to fix it in any way.
    How did you get the lint out of your phone?

    The problem appears to have been lint in the headphone jack. I guess I'll leave this here in case others have the same issue.
    How did you get the lint out, I have the same problem

    ok so this is whats happeing to me and its like i have to put it in a sweat spot for it to play. if i move it it will stop playing. already tried air can
    That is the headphones. All it means is that the headphone wires have fallen slightly out of the rubber. Nothing you can do to the jack or the headphones, just get new ones (headphones not phone)

    I had the same problem. I have Samsung Galaxy s6. I restarted the phone then the earphones worked again. It must have been an open app that conflicted with the sound setting.

    My problem is none of the above. My Headphones click so it's in the right place and not off. There appears to be nothing inside my headphone jack, I checked for lint. I can't even find a option for disableing the headphones, and it can't be the case since I borrowed my brother's bluetooth headphones and they worked fine, but I don't want to use the bluetooth headphones, the audio quality is crap compared to my headphones. Someone help, this is beyond my reach.
