    The Official Thread for No Sound after HeadPhone Use

    Hey guys, I've seen WAY too many threads for this problem. I thought that rather than responding a billion times to threads with my opinions and results of research, I'd just make an official thread.

    Post ANYTHING that you may find, or post that you have the problem here.

    What is the problem?
    The problem is that after us Droid users have been using our headphones, there is no sound through the built-in speaker after unplugging the headphones. Using headphones again does work. Essentially the Droid is stuck in Headphone mode.

    What has been found out?
    Through my extensive research (this is my mp3 player)
    I've concluded that it is a software problem. I have not taken an extensive look into the software, but experimentation has proved otherwise.

    I can use my headphones for about 3 minutes and still be able to use the speaker after unplugging them.

    Also, if you look at the top of your droid at the headphone jack, it's possible to push it in, showing some play. This contributes to the cracking headphone noise problem, and needs to be remedied somehow. How, I have no idea. We'll leave Motorola Engineers up to that.

    The problem of the loose headphone jack could also have to do with the no sound after headphone problem. There are terminals inside of the device that could possible get bridged or spark, which would essentially cause the phone to be in a continuous cycle of thinking there is headphones plugged in.

    To fix the phone temporarily, restart it. Long hold of power and click Power Off.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
    I've also found out that it is possible for the phone to think that there were/are headphones plugged in, while it is entirely impossible (didn't use headphones at all)

    If you try the method below and it doesn't work, try taking a pair of headphones, inserting them in, then slowly pulling on the connector. This will cause the port/receptacle for headphones on the phone to be pulled out, and after a restart, should cause the phone to allow use of the speaker again.

    *subscribing*

    I had this happen once. Also, some static in the left headphone last night. A friend's headphone jack on his Droid went bad. Sounds like an unfortunately common problem.

    Yeah my first one that dies a horrible death had the crackling in the headphones. Luckily my new one doesn't have the same issue.

    I think I'm going to be heading in to get a replacement Droid this weekend. That is if I'm not snowed out. The stupid crackling headphone problem can easily be fixed with a couple of drops of CA (Super Glue) but I'd rather not void my warrenty.

    Noob question, I know, but what is the software to back up my apps?

    i just noticed this after reading this post. it must be due to the 2.0.1 update, cause before it would pause the song then resume when you hit the play button and the speaker would work fine. love the phone but too many issues, oh well i'll take the many good with the few bad issues.

    I have just developed this problem, I went three to four weeks without any issues. I have had the "crackly" sound for a while, it seems the headphone jack is extremely touchy.

    Has anyone had any luck returning the phone for a freshy?

    Coincidentally the problem started after I added another Gig of music to the phone, so I've got 6.5G worth of music loaded onto the phone. I don't see how that would have any effect on this problem though.

    I have the same problem. Went to VZW store just now, before I read this thread. Didn't seem like they had a clue. Now after reading this thread, I understand why my music would crackle as well.

    Gonna shoot VZW an email and see what they say.

    I had the crackle sound before the 2.0.1 update. I'll be definitely taking the phone in.

    No Audio after Headphone use

    Starting having this issue after the update to 2.0.1 I would roll it back but that doesn't seem to be an option.
    After using the headphones if I unplug them the sound does not return to the handset. I have found that you can use the speaker phone in a pinch. but the only fix I have found is to power off the phone! This has caused me to miss a number of important phone calls and to be forced to hang up on people. I am not sure if anyone has a direct line to Google or to Motorola but this can't get fixed fast enough!!!

    Well the other thread authors should have known better than to make "unofficial" threads...

    Sarcasm aside, I did discover something new about this problem. I don't seem to have this problem with certain headphones. I'm sitting here right now plugging and unplugging headphones from my phone and the sound switches from headphone mode to normal mode seamlessly. I got some new headphones around the day that the 2.0.1 update came out, and I always have the unplug = no sound problem with them. I figured it was something wrong with the update but now I'm wondering if it really is a hardware issue.

    The headphones I got also include a microphone that I should be able to use for making calls, but I haven't really tried that part of it. I just wanted to mention that in case the microphone may be causing the issue somehow.
