    Thanks, yeah, it appears to be just the result of an accumulation of lint in the jack.
    I tried the lint thing but my phone jack is still not working. It's a brand new phone so I don't know what to do.

    Welcome to Android Central! If it's a brand new phone, the easiest thing to do would be to bring it back to the store and ask for a refund or exchange. The second easiest thing would be to contact the manufacturer for warranty repair or replacement.

    Ended up here as result of some internet searches.

    THought I'd share the story with my brand new Samsung Galaxy A 10.1 with pen tablet.

    I was nearly furious and bumbed out that I may have to return the device to Amazon as none
    of my headphones or external speakers would work with the audio jack. All of which worked with my ancient IPAD2.
    (:Yes the weak built in speakers worked (Netflix test)

    Long story short I stumbled across the solution which I found arcane and almost did not try it.

    TLDR. Power the device down totally. Plug in headphone to mini jack till it clicks. Power up the device while holding
    the volume button down until the device boots up.
    NOw the device properly detects the audio jack plug insertion and vice versa.

    I wonder how many of Samsungs tablets are returned for this silly reason. It is a most odd solution.

    THis is my first android device if I don't count my Sony big screen set .

    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.
    Hi, im facing the same issue.
    How to fix this
