Default Headphone Jack is terrible

Every time I plug in my headphones, it detects them, but the slightest movement pretty much tells the G2 they're detached. Any one found a fix? I did the compressed air thing, but the problem is still there. A variety of G2 owners have this issue it seems.


VZW LG G2.

Agreed - someone/something has knackered your socket.

I hammer mine and it's still perfect.

You could try a little "Contact Cleaner/Lubricant" such as Servisol - this will clean any poor contacts if they exist. Is the problem limited to one earphone set? Some plugs are "not great".
