Default Headphone Jack Problem

Please Login to Remove!

It seems that after two years, the headphone jack on my 8830 is crapping out. I have to really fidget with the headphone input to get sound out of both earphones.

Is there any way to fix this or am I stuck with listening to music through pretty much one ear until I replace my device...without buying bluetooth headphones.

Have you tried a different set of headphones? If so, and the problem persists, you are likely stuck unless you repair the problem, or go BT.

Switched my 8800 6 times during the last year for being worn out in the headphone jack - weak side of the 8800 series clearly
