Question about Cell Phones
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.
I was able to get the phone "unstuck" from this mode by plugging and unplugging my wired headset several times. Perhpas the contacts were dirty inside the jack...

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.

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.
