While the phone is powered on, and I plug something in the jack of the phone, I hear a continuous clicking sound, with the frequency of about 4 times per second, on the right speaker. The left speaker plays the audio as it should.
I don't have a mono device to see how it behaves with it...
The phone's speakers do not have this problem, or the Bluetooth headset.
The sound is identical, as far as I can tell, to the sound (almost?) any audio device makes when it's plugged in (and/or out?).

Phone: Lenovo A800
Android version: 4.0.4

The issue doesn't happen on my Nexus 7.
Happens with headsets, earphones, external speakers... Pretty much everything in the jack.
I chose to post the issue here because I have found various similar issues with other Android devices around the Internet, but no working solution.

Is there any known cause for this? Any solution..?


My brother just bought a new headset, and there's no clicking sound with it.
I looked at the jacks and there seems to be no difference.
Any ideas...?

Oh, I forgot about this.

My brother came to me and jammed the jack in as far as it could physically go.
The problem was fixed...

The jack component on the board inside is failing. Common problem. Fixable. Caused by overheating

  • Wasn't the problem. The real issue was the jack resisting the insertion too much. Enough to make me think it was all the way in. In fact, it wasn't.
