Rakeria Washington, sounds like it is the actual headphone jack. It should turn off the circuit to your speaker when it detects that the headphones are plugged in. If you give us the model of your phone, we might be able to help you with the replacement as well. Hope this helps, good luck.

@passionate if you are using a bluetooth headset check your crossover cable. From left to right or vice versa.

This happened on my Moto X and it was because lint was inside the headphone jack preventing the headphones from making a solid connection. Power down the phone and use a wooden or plastic toothpick and make sure there is nothing jammed inside the headphone jack.

I have a brand new Samsung galaxy j5 2017. It came with headphones in the box. Nothing is jammed in the jack. All bluetooth etc is switched off. I've rebooted the phone several times and started it with headphones in and headphones out. The phone will not play music through headphones. Just blasts it from the phone speakers....help....sooooo frustrated!

Restarting does not solve the problem. I need to know how to set the settings to make the music come out of the headphones.

Hello. It might not be the actual headphones. More than likely there is a setting on your phone that can direct the sound to your headphones. It happens a lot to me, but I change the settings to "headphones" from "internal speaker" and it works every time. I hope this helps.

I had this problem. I got a cotton but cleaned it out blew down the hole and also my phone was due a system update, this was a galaxy s6 edge. Then I left it over night and it worked the next morning. If your phone needs an update to that but defiantly attempt cleaning it it can work

If your headphones or earphones are playing out loud after you've plugged them in there might me a broken piece inside where the earphones go that's why mines kept playing out loud l. You might need a new phone or get it fix the part that was broken my dad kept outing it back into place with a needle but it would work then pause and play out loud. You might need a new phone. Hope this works

I think a piece of metal has broken off the end of my other earbuds in the headphones jack. I can't afford a new phone. My phone has to last me a long time. I only had my phone for about 2-3 months. I can't buy a new one. Is there anyway I can just go get it fixed? Maybe at the mall or Walmart?

I have an older version of Sony Xperia and the music plays outloud with my headphones plugged in but once I switched headphones there wasn't a problem but I can't find the setting that I accidentally switched that made my phone unresponsive to my headphones. Normally a "headphones plugged in" message pops up but now it doesn't.

Whatever it is, it has nothing to do with hardware. It’s a settings issue and no one seems to know how to communicate the way to fix it.

I have a moto E4 it just plays out loud when I plug it in. And sometimes when I plug it in the volume automatically goes all the way up. What's wrong?
