Stereo headset jack broke

I droped it when listening to music and a little tiny piece of plastic is broke on the inside edge where you stick the headset into. It still works but now I have to jiggle the head set because it won't hold it in securely. Is there a replacement part any where or does any one have an idea? Thanks everyone

Re: stereo headset jack broke

Mean Dean, I would check out (or go to and look on the side bar for audio jack fix). I have not used him so don't know how effective this is but he certainly seems knowledgeable. If you are the DIY type, he has detail instruction on how to fix it yourself.

Touchscreen will not work on my Samsung Brightside SCH-U380

Other than a bad digitizer (touchscreen) or connection, sometimes just a tiny bit of gunk/debris gets in that tiny gap that goes around the outside of the screen. That often results in the same problem,, a non-working touchscreen. Take a very thin edged piece if cut plastic as a "tool" to clear out gunk/debris from this gap around the edge of the screen. Some people even have used like the opposite end of a sewing needle (not the pointed end).
Many ppl have fixed a non-working screen simply by cleaning out this tiny edge gunk. Give that a shot as a first step. If you use care, you won't damage anything.

No sound when I get a call or answer a call..? how can I fix this

if you had plugged in a headset or headphones to listen to music the phones a little slower and still thinks the headphones are in and if you take the battery out thats one of the things it saves so you still have the problem. For some people they can fix it by simply plugging the headset or headphones back in and taking them out slowly but for others this dosent always work, so what i found out you can do is stick a small pin in the headphone jack and wiggle it around untill you hear somthing ( have your pocket tunes turned on so you'll know when its working) then once you hear sound just quickley pull the pin out.
Hope this helps

No sound

I had this problem as well. I would get sound from headphones but unplugging them I had no sound from the builtin speaker.

When you plug in your headphones it moves a thin piece of metal in the jack which interrupts a connection (this is a good thing) so it can know when to disable the internal speaker. When you unplug your headphones the piece of metal moves back and it enables the internal speaker again.

I was able to fix this by taking apart my x51v and bending the piece of metal a little while the headphones are plugged in so that it will contact better when the headphones are unplugged,

To take your axim apart there are 4 screws on the back underneath the rubber grips that you need to take out. Then you can just slide a finger nail up and down each side to remove the front and back of the casing. The back you will need to swing out from the bottom since it hooks over the headphone jack. I unplugged the small wire that connects the front half of the case to the guts using a tiny flat screwdriver.

Inside on the back, there is a black plastic plate that is held on by 4 more screws. Take that off.

Now you can see the headphone jack. I plugged in my headphones and used a small flat screwdriver to push against the headphone jack on the bottom piece of metal on the right side with the axim face down. You can observe the piece I mean by looking at the side of the headphone jack when you plug and unplug headphones. It moves perhaps 1/32 of an inch.

Your goal is to bend the piece of metal closer to where it is when no headphones are plugged in. The only way to bend it properly is to do it when the headphones are in.

Sorry if this isn't clear enough. I'm not sure if this is a permanent fix or not but it's worked for me.

Blackberry curve works with headset but not when headset removed

I have this same exact problem!! here is what works for me to fix it.. i plug the hands-free headset half way into the phone and then tilt it down (to push the jack up toward the front of the phone). After that i am able to use the phone regular again (speakerphone and internal earpiece works again.) I find that i have to do this once a day. There seams to be a short or something on the whole jack piece.. sometimes i actually just use my finger to wiggle the outside of the 3.5mm jack on the phone and that fixes it to! but i also found that there is replacement pieces like this on EBAY..|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A2|294%3A50

No headphone jack

The USB HeadPhone Jack should work the same way as regular headphone jack. I have it on my Motorola phone and it works great even better.

But I have never seen the actual G1 phone so I am not sure about this.

Let me know when you get it!

Treo 755 not able to make calls

The only workarounds I've read about these issues is:

1. Plug in the headset again and pull it out crisply and see if that works. Another method I heard, is to stick a toothpick in there.

2. Using the OEM Treo mono headset, insert the jack fully into the socket, spin the jack in the socket 180-360 degrees and remove the jack with a quick jerk. If the socket is truly undamaged, this technique, often repeated, seems to enable the speaker.

3. Some report that the headphone jack adapters, 3.5 to 2.5mm, work for this as well, that has NOT been my experience.

4. VolumeCarePro will bypass the headset switch and is a software workaround.

5. Otherwise, the only way I've been able to 'resurrect' the speaker is by hard reset, and once it took two hard resets.

As a result, I do not use my headset jack on my Treo 755p at all any more.

Unfortunately, this is an area that Palm is aware of, but has done little to fix.

is a hard reset
