Reading: Lg g3 headphone jack loose

I recently upgraded to an lg g3 and couldn’t be happier. it’s a great smartphone. but for a few days there was an annoying issue which it seems has been reported by many users. briefly: whenever you listened to audio through headphones or an auxiliary cable, the volume controls would kick in and continually reduce the volume until you couldn’t hear anything but silence.

It was hugely irritating. even if you kept your finger on the hardware volume up button, you would see the on-screen audio display dragging down the noise. I could force the volume back by swiping right on the onscreen control, but in a split second I removed my digit, the volume would drop. and if that’s annoying when walking down the street, on a treadmill it distracted me.

5 fixes and workarounds for lg g3 headphone problem

1. lg g3 headset repair: try different wired headsets

I don’t understand why this would help, but I saw it suggested on various user forums. and, glory be to you, it seemed to fix the problem for me. Somewhat counterintuitively, I first ran into the volume dropout issue when using the included LG headphones, and putting in an old pair of iPhone headphones seemed to solve things. (and subsequently lg headphones now work fine. weird.)

It’s possible that changing the cables caused some sand or something to come off because one of the things lg suggested was…

2. lg g3 headphone repair: use compressed air to clean the 3.5mm jack

To be fair, the support guy said this wasn’t a guaranteed fix by any means, but said it might help. and I followed the advice, and now my headphone jack is behaving. so make this what you want.

the suggestion was that there may be a problem with the audio jack connection and that it could be due to a bit of dust. a quick blast of compressed air would dislodge that sand. (You could just blow into the hole, but I wouldn’t recommend that, as you might end up clogging things up with your own warm, wet breath. True story.)

3. lg g3 headset repair: factory reset

another thing to try, as recommended by lg. just factory reset your phone. go to settings > general and then backup & restart. scroll down to the bottom and select ‘factory data reset’. I tend to think this is the equivalent of turning it off and on again, but if there’s a software bug, it can help.

for the record, I ignored this advice. I would have done it only if the other fixes didn’t work, and mainly so I could return my phone as faulty with a clear conscience. but for belt and suspenders it is worth doing what they tell you.

now let’s move on to some workarounds in case you just can’t solve the problem.

4. lg g3 headset repair: use bluetooth headset

obvious, and far from a perfect solution, but it will allow you to use headphones with your lg g3. just buy a pair of bluetooth headphones, plug them in and go.

5. lg g3 headphone repair: install a volume control app

another workaround rather than a fix, and one that we’ve seen reports of working only moderately well. but you can install one of the many android volume control apps and set a minimum volume which is actually the volume you need all the time. It won’t be a seamless experience: we’ve yet to find an app that resets the volume more often than every second. so in the worst case, you’ll hear disjointed audio and your battery will take a beating.
