I have this issue now! It started very randomly - just plugged in my headphones on the way to work this morning, as I do every morning... but they weren't recognised by the phone and no sound played through them.

I have restarted my phone twice, and twisted and pushed the headphone jack every way I can... with no luck  Sad

Has anybody got any miracle solutions, or is it going to be time to return to Samsung?

It is a very tight fit and you do have to push it in very firmly, but saying that if you've tried that and it still doesn't work I'd take it back, I very much doubt they'll give you a replacement unless you just got it within the lest 7 days, but will send it away to be repaired.

Not sure about other networks but T-Mobile give you a loan handset while yours is away, usually a crap-make-do jobbie.

not sure if this has been resolved in another thread or not (first one that popped up in google), but I was having this problem this morning as well. Previously I had it and restarting the phone detected the headphones. Today no such luck until I went into settings-accessory and selected audio applications and the phone detected the headphones as soon as that was ticked. Don't know why it got unticked in the first place, methinks software update

Push the jack until the metal portion fully goes in side, the plastic part touching the body


Exactly how far does the headphone jack go into the socket?

Mine "click" in and stop going any further when there's still about 3mm of headphone plug still exposed. I tried pushing it in really quite hard and daren't try harder in case I break something! I've tried both the S3-supplied headphones and some other ones with the same result; in the current position the supplied phones crackle with any slight movement of the jack as they don't make a good connection. My other headphones don't seem to crackle; I guess the plug on them might be that bit fatter. I also tried the S3 headphones in my old Galaxy S and they press in flush and work fine with no crackles, so the headphones themselves are ok.

My big question is should it be flush at the non-curved side of the jack i.e. no exposed jack? Or is it about 3mm proud at the closest point?

If anyone has a photo showing it that might help me! Need to know if it's a duff socket or whether I'm just being lame...

Cheers,

Mark

Ok so I'm having a similar problem. So my headphone jack works fine, most of the time. So it works with headphones, works with portable speakers, but when I try to plug it into my computer's mic jack (using a cable), it doesn't work. And it should, it works with my ipod, and my HTC Incredible, but not with my S III. What it does it it completely ignores the cable and continues using the built in speakers. (And I already tried re-booting, didn't work) Why?
