Ways to fix iPhone 6 headphone problem


Method 1: cotton Swab method

iPhone 6 Headphone Problem

There might be a case when this error is because of some dust particles that are stuck up inside the headphone jack slot. So what you can do is to blow some air inside the audio jack point. If you have a case on your iPhone 6 then make sure that you remove it before doing this step. After this take a cotton swab or something soft and thin that can go inside the headphone jack hole and insert this cotton swab into the headphone jack slot. Now clean this slot by moving the cotton swab in and out. Again blow some air in the jack slot. Put your headphone jack inside the slot after wiping the jack as well. Now remove the jack and put it inside again. You should repeat this for about 4-5 times and this would be able to solve the issue.

Method 2: Wooden toothpick method

There might also be a case when the issue occurs because there is some moisture trapped inside the headphone jack slot. So if the previous method of cotton swab hasn’t solved the issue then you can go ahead with trying this method.

First of all, check if the mute mode in the phone is activated or not. There is a headphone sensor in the audio jack port that can detect when the headphones are inserted. If the mute mode is activated, turn it off. After that, insert the headphone jack into the port firmly and remove it. Do this for 3-4 times. After this just use compressed air to clean the port for any kind of dust particles. Don’t blow air from mouth as it contains moisture. Then insert a wooden toothpick inside the headphone jack slot. This will remove the moisture from the slot. Now turn up the volume and restart the phone. This should solve the problem.
