The headphone jack on my phone doesn't work from time to time. Sound is then played over the loudspeaker, not the headphone. It's quite annoying, but not yet worth the trouble to send in my phone for repair.

Phone: Sony Z1 Compact, Android 5.0

Is there a way (setting) to force Android to send sound to the headphone jack?

  • Have you tried different headphones? Incompatible headsets cause this issue sometimes. – Lucky Sep 24 '15 at 15:50
  • I've tried three headphones. Two of them never work, one now and then. I guess the sensor that detects that a headphone is connected is broken. – SPRBRN Sep 24 '15 at 20:54
