[Q] Issue With Headphone Jack
Hi, I've been having a weird issue with my headphone jack that I was hoping someone might be knowledgeable enough to help with.
Long story short, I haven't been able to use headphones for a while. Any time I plug in a set of headphones, music will, most of the time, come out of the external speaker as if there was nothing plugged in. Every once in a while I am able to get music through the headphones, but it is extremely distorted, almost as if some of the frequencies are missing and you're only getting part of the range.
Now, the weird thing is that my phone works perfectly in my car using an aux cable. Just plug everything in and music runs through the car's speakers as if there was no issue to begin with. This gave me the idea of trying to use a female-female connector to plug the aux cable into the phone and the connector, and headphones into the connector. This does not work at all.
I'm completely at a loss as to why this is acting up. I really don't want to take it in to a repair place, and would be willing to try fixing it myself if someone was able to isolate the problem.
Thanks in advance.
