Re: M4 aqua Headphone Jack issue

Is a workaround to this issue possible with USB earphones?

Re: M4 aqua Headphone Jack issue

I have had the same problem for months. But I think mine is a problem with the jack itself.

Re: M4 aqua Headphone Jack issue

Is it possible that the headphone jack circuitry can get damaged by a faulty set of headphones? For example, a set of headphones which has had the cable pulled could possibly develop a short circuit which then damages the (overly delicate) sensitive electronics in the phone. I ask this because in the past, I have seen a laptop damaged from a faulty USB mouse which had frayed wires.

Re: M4 aqua Headphone Jack issue

Found another workaround other than Bluetooth. Install SoundAbout and use it to force output to earphones. Sony, if you are reading this then please create a free app which also performs this workaround.

Re: M4 aqua Headphone Jack issue

Is fixing this issue is supported by Sony warranty or will they claim that is user's fault and charge for repair?

Can't use any headphones with my m4 aqua every time I plug them into the jack at the top I have a message pop up saying headset not supported. Use another headset or try Sony mobile support site for more information. It happens with all headset including what came in the box with the phone. Pls pls can someone help. Thanks
