No audio from cell phone

I'm using a simple LG phone that's usually trouble free. The audio quit on me. It worked fine, the last time I used the phone. Now I can make a call and complete a connection, but I hear nothing from my phone.

This is not the same problem as when the phone is on silent mode. I can change the mode, and I can see clearly that it's set for normal mode. It's just that the phone gives no audio output.

In my case, the problem has been solved, but it may be worth posting here. When I searched the web for clues to my problem, I didn't find anything. Maybe the next person who has this problem can benefit from the same solution.

The cause of this problem was debris in the headset jack. Somehow it caused the phone to believe that a headset plug was inserted. As a result, the phone was trying to transmit audio to a headset instead of to the phone's ear speaker.

SOURCE: silent mode activated is on and won't come off.I can not hear my music or ringtones on it.

you can change this by going to settings>profiles> general>activate. this is a general solution and i am saying this since you havent specified the manfacturer and model of the phone. you can also refer the instruction manual to change it.

SOURCE: trouble with ear jack and speaker, lg voyager VX10000

Agreed, the problem does seem to be these pins, I would guess it's something to do with the charger moving them when placed and removed. Which would explain the issue if you've never used a headset. I bought a headset trying to fix this issue, I tried plugging and unpligging it with no result, I did hear sound through the headset, though it didn't fix it when I unplugged it. I was able to fix it by taking a fine sewing needle and carefully move these pins on the side, but if you do this proceed with caution as they are fragile. Hopefully this page helps, because I know the frusteration of trying to figure it out and fix it.

Phone quit. will not charge or turn on. worked fine last night.

Try pulling the battery for about 60 seconds, and clean the contacts and make sure that the battery sits properly and has good contact with the phone.

The LG Ally is designed to turn on while it is charging, so try attaching it directly to a wall socket and possibly using another charging cord if you can. If a new cord plugged into the wall does not turn the phone on, the phone probably has a severe hardware issue that you may not be able to correct through repair, I would recommend sending it in for warranty repair if you are still under warranty unless the phone has physical or water damage.

Bluetooth issues

The solution was quite simple. Always give your new hands free kits the full charge before trying to use it. I never thought it would make that much of a difference but it obviously does. I feel terrible about all the hands free kits i have taken back as faulty.
