Headphone Jack Replacement & Repair Headphone Jack Problems

The iPhone Headphone Jack Replacement parts we provide are of top quality. The parts are replaced only after ensuring that the headphone jack is irreparable. We will repair if possible, but at the end of the day, you just want your headphone jack to be operational again.

If you notice that either one or both of your headphones are not working, then perhaps the headphone jack is broken or has lost its sensitivity. Other times the headphones work only intermittently.

In our years of experience repairing headphone jacks, we found that the root cause of this issue is because of water and physical damage. Dropping your device in the water or the device getting hit into a hard surface can damage the phone internals, which includes the headphone jack. As the headphone jack is also considered as a delicate part of the phone, using excessive force to insert and exert the headphone plugs can also damage the headphone jack overtime. As such it is important to maintain the device properly.

If the sound from your computer or mobile device is hissing, crackling, or fading in and out when you use headphones, it could be your headphone jack. If you have tested your headphones with other devices to make sure that they are working properly, then the problem is most likely in the jack. However, there are some simple things that you can to try to solve the problem before seeking repair.

Troubleshooting Headphone Jack Problems

At this point, we can’t be sure whether or not your iPhone headphone jack is not working because of a software issue or hardware issue. However, it’s important for you to know that software problems can prevent your headphone jack from working properly. So before taking your iPhone into the Apple Store or Local tech repair shop, work through the troubleshooting steps below!

It’s possible that the headphone jack is just dusty or dirty. You can try using compressed air to clean out the debris to see if this solves your issues. A damp toothpick can also be used to gently clean out the jack and remove lint. However, you should be very careful when inserting anything into the jack to avoid further damage.

Check the settings on your computer or device. You might just need to update a driver or adjust the volume. Sometimes a device will automatically mute the volume when headphones are plugged in or removed. You should also check the connection by removing the headphones and re-inserting them. They might just be improperly inserted. Finally, try restarting the device to see if it solves the problem.

Restart your phone

To test for a potential software problem, try restarting your iPhone. Turning your iPhone off and back on can sometimes fix small software problems because all of the programs running on your iPhone can shut down and reboot naturally.

To turn off your iPhone, press and hold the power button. After a few seconds, you’ll see “slide to power off” and a small power icon appear on the screen. Swipe the power icon from left to right to turn off your iPhone.
Wait approximately 15-30 seconds, then press and hold the power button again. Release the power button when the Apple logo appears right in the center of your iPhone’s display.

Turn Up The Volume On Your iPhone

f you plugged headphones into your iPhone, but you can’t hear any audio playing, then the volume on your iPhone may just be turned all the way down.

Press the volume up button on the left side of your iPhone to turn up its volume. When you do, a small box will pop-up on the center of your iPhone’s display indicating the volume of your iPhone.

When the box appears, look for two things:

Make sure it says Headphones at the top of the box. This confirms that your headphone jack has detected that headphones are plugged in.
Make sure there’s a volume bar at the bottom of the box. If it says Mute, then audio won’t play through the headphones.

Try some other headphones

Is it your headphones that are faulty? Test another pair of headphones. It’s possible that nothing’s wrong with the headphone jack on your iPhone. Instead, there may be an issue with the plug of your headphones?
