I get no sound when playing music

Are you able to hear voice of other side during a call?
first try to reboot, factory reset phone and change SD card etc as a priliminary troubleshoot.
every cell phone does have 2 speakers, one as ear piece for low sound and another for louder sound (for ringtones, music etc), google to try the code for your ZTE model's h/w responce code e.g. for all all Samsung phones it's *#0*#.
and check your speaker, If it's faulty, visit nearest service center, as it does'nt seems a firmware error.

Wont play music

sounds like you have removed them by pulling on the wires, not by the earbuds or plug. not a recommeded practice when unplugging anything as it usually ends in broken wires internally along with tears. You may be able the get somebody to do some faultfinding/repairs if they are of the super expensive variety otherwise replacement may be the only solution. Most in-ear headphones have super delicate wiring and are as such a real pig to resolder

My phone keeps restarting itself. The music player is on the screen for some reason and i cant do anything with it. I have taken the battery and sim out and it has made no difference.

try this, open your side bar on your screen, press the play options on your music player on your screen if its playing to stop the music, if it isn't, then press the music player for about a seconds till you notice it changes size and drag it to your side bar. by then the music player will be gone from your screen and back to its home in the side bar..

Left ear no music

Before you worry about repair, verify that the balance control in the iPod isn't causing the problem. The easy way to do this is to try some other audio device (home stereo, etc).

If you wrap the headphone around your iPod, after a while, it may bend a pin in the headphone jack, causing no contact to be made, therefor one side of music. You can try to bend it back with a pin, or order a new ******** www.ifixitcom.

Motorola S9 headset plays music in one ear

I had the same problem with a Samsung phone. There are two ways of fixing this; First, you can remove the S9 profile from your phone's bluetooth list, and then add it again, going through pairing and entering 0000 on your phone when asked for the code.
Alternatively, you might try pressing the "play" button on the right earpiece on the Motorola S9. This is supposed to kick it into the A2DP stereo mode for music listening.
Good luck.
And get a copy of the manual from the Motorola web site at I found this very handy for checking what the little flashing lights mean. When you get stereo reception, the little LED in the middle of the headset flashes green, not the usual blue and red and purple for voice calls. 
In case you didn't know, as a phone headset, with the microphone activated, you only get sound in your left ear, and the light flashes blue. For music, you get both ears, and it flashes green. So if it ain't green, you are in mono mode.

Won't ring aloud

Did you try using the volume control button on the left side of the ear piece. Press it and make sure it's not on vibrate.

Phones ear speaker stopped working?

I guess this is a common problem huh. No worries!

First: Click on your music button and play a song as you would normally do on your phone (make sure your speaker is on during this point).

Second: Click on the speaker button so you can listen to your music through your ear piece (as your music is still playing). If you don't hear your music through your ear piece wait until you hear it. It shouldn't take more than a minute. (Your music should be playing throughout this whole process)

Follow these steps every time you come across this problem.

If this solution resolved your problem, please leave a comment and a good rate. Thank you!
