iPhone stuck in headphone mode: what's broke?
First of all I would like to thank you for your time and effort in advance! I'm from Holland, so I'm sorry if I say something weird!
Since a few days my Iphone 4S is stuck on headphone mode. Nothing happend: I didn't drop it, it didn't get wet. I just woke up, recieved a call and noticed that I couldn't hear what the other person was saying. No sound at all. So I used the speaker modus, and I could hear the other person perfectly fine, but trough the speaker ofcourse.
I noticed when I turn my volume up, or down, it states that my phone is in headphone modus. So I tried to solve that: I used compressed air to clean the jack, and I plugged and unplugged a headphone for about 20 times. Still the same problem.
I can't test if my earspeaker is working, because it's on headphone mode. So I don't know if the Phone is on headphone mode because of the malfunction of the earspeaker, or if the earspeaker won't work of the malfunction of the headphone module. I already ordered some tools to open my Iphone, but it would be nice to hear some experiences or advice before I open it. Maybe there's someway I can test what isn't working.
I don't know if this has anything to do with it: but with voice control, there is no sound trough the earspeaker. And if I use a headphone while listening to music, then unplug it, the Iphone stops playing the music. So I guess it recognises that the headphone is unplugged? If I press play again, the normal speakers won't work. So my best bet is that there's something wrong with the headphone module, but I'm far from sure. I saw this on Youtube, will this work? Is this any good? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_HCSDAUM...
Thanks again for your help!
Is this a good question?
