I own a Hyundai Sonata 2012 which has a USB port that worked perfectly for listening to music on my iPhone. ... and it SUCKS. i want to be able to charge my phone via USB while I listen to music. .... I even bought an ALPINE stereo head unit and tried that, as they supposedly work with NOKIA phones, but.
There is a switch inside your headphone jack. When you plug your headphone in it moves and breaks connection telling the phone that the headphones are plugged in. Try plugging and unplugging a headset to see if it frees this switch up. If not you may have a malfunctioning switch.
Also, turn off bluetooth if it is on...it might be hooked up to a bluetooth headset if you have one.
ok this can be a common issue, it would help to know the make of the phone but here a few things to do/check
1st check the aux port to make sure nothing is damaged
if all looks fine then its most likely a software glitch and the phone is stuck in headphone/handsfree mode
in most cases simply restarting the phone will suffice, however if this does not resolve try the recomended manufacturers reset code/option to fix (warning this may result in loss of data, so backup anything important!)
This is different on every stereo, but generally the RCA ports in the back of the stereo are labeled "Aux" or something to that extent.
First, you must purchase a headphone jack to RCA cable which can connect to both your stereo and your ipod.
Connect the cable, turn your ipod on and start playing a song. Turn the volume on the stereo to a moderate volume so you can hear when the song is being played through your stereo. Then, using the selector switch, turn the stereo from "Radio" to "Aux" or whatever it says next to the the RCA plug ins on the back.
go to radio shack or walmart . get a cable that has an 1/8th inch stereo plug on one end and two (male) rca plugs on the other end.
make sure your volume is not all the way up on either the computer or the stereo.
plug the 1/8 inch plug into your "speaker or headphone" jack on the laptop.
plug the red and white (male) rca plugs into the auxilary or cd "IN" on the home theatre.
Power up the stereo, make your source on the home theatre the Auxilary or CD, whichever you used to plug the RCA's into.
now you should hear anything from the laptop through the home theatre.
