Question about LG Cell Phones

1 Answer

I never placed anything in the earjack but when I press the volume key on the left side of my Verizon LG VX 8360, it displays "Earpiece Vol-Earjack" instead of Master Volume. I cannot hear callers and they cannot hear me. I also cannot hear voicemail although my phone still has the capacity to ring and text. I believe the phone thinks I have something plugged in even though I don't and there appears to be no manual way to fix it. I've tried everything. please help!

On most phones, the copper contacts down inside the jack work kind of like switches to detect if you have anything plugged in. Other stuff getting in there can depress the contacts, making the phone think something is plugged in.

Get a bright light (flashlight or the like) and shine it down in there. Check for anything unexpected in there, like pocket lint. If there's anything in there, fish it out with some small piece of wire (a paperclip, needle, or the like).

LG enV earpiece and key sound not working. Got the phone 3 weeks ago. No damage at all; hasn't been dropped, water damaged or anything. Worked fine yesterday. Sound settings are fine. Ring tone works and...


go to tools and setting --> sound settings --> keypad volume...see if you see "KEYPAD VOL-EARJACK"...that means that your phone is stuck in EARJACK mode....get a wired ear piece, plug it in, make a call, and then unplug after you end the call....that should resolve your problem...

No sound--master volume says ear jack


i put it in the freezer, hit it, drove a nail into the earjack port. then i poured water into the earjack port, held a lighter to it, and blew into it, none of that worked, so i jammed a paper clip into the earport and that fixed it. i also slammed in on the ground a few times.

Called Verizon. Removed battery while phone is still on. They also had me update the phone via *228, option 2 but I don't think that helped.

Hi yes im having trouble with my lg chocolate, i cant hear or talk to the person but the call has gone thru


When the call has gone through, try changing the volume. If it says "Earpiece-Earjack Mode", the phone 'thinks' something is plugged into the data/charging port. Try using a clean toothbrush with a very small amount of alcohol on it (90% isopropyl is best) and brushing the port vigorously. If using 70% alcohol, use dust off or someother cnned air to dry he port out. If you are still having he issue, damaged is inside the phone and probably can't be fixed.

Need to adjust earpiece volume


Hi,

You can increase the earpiece volume by pressing the UP volume key (located on the side of the phone) *during* a phone call. I simply called my voicemail and once it connected, I hit the UP volume key and the volume meter displayed. Then I pressed it til it was the max and pressed SET. That worked for me, hope it works for you.

I would suggest returning the phone to verizon for replacement, if you are still under the 1 year warranty you should have no problems with a replacement.

Volume is non-existant on LG VX 4400


When you press vol up & down it will indicate "ringer ear jack." This means the phone is stuck in ear jack mode expecting a wired head phone accessory. Remove the battery then unscrew and pull out the antenna and the black plastic sleeve. Then remove the for small torx screws and carefully remove the back. Take a tooth pick to the back of the ear jack an bend the retainer pin back. Put everything back in reverse order and it should work fine.
