Monday 04th of March 2013
Headphone jack on my razor maxx just completely stopped working today. Any ideas? Can't afford the warranty replacement but need music as it's what gets me through the drive home after overnights... Any ideas or tips/tricks you have will be helpful! Thanks, Isaac Dibb Sent from my DROID RAZR using Android Central Forums
headphone jack stopped working - Razr Maxx
Wednesday 01st of August 2012
The heaphone jack on my Razr Maxx has stopped working. When I plug in the headphone it still plays through the normal speaker. I looked in the jack hole and don't see anything like lint in there. Verizon says they will replace the phone but if they find any "corrosion" (e.g., got wet) I will be charge for a new phone. I sure don't want the hassle of setting up a new phone. I haven't used the jack since the ICS update several weeks ago. Do you think it is a hardware or software issue? tks John
3rd Broken Headphone Jack
Monday 25th of June 2012
Not looking for troubleshooting help, this is just a report.Love my Droid Razr Maxx (Verizon) but for one serious issue. The headphone jack has stopped working or broken on 3 consecutive Razr Maxx handsets. 1st one - Cut over stops working so if you plug in any headphones, adapter or ear buds the sound doesn't cut over and continues to play from the external speaker.2nd one - Same issue along with the headphone plug no longer physically staying in the jack. Won't click down, just pops out.3rd one - Actually heard this one go out. Got in my car after work, turned on Pandora and plugged in my headphone to tape adapter for in car play and only the left channel was working. Pulled plug out and replugged and now it's the same issue... sound continues to play from external speakers and won't cut over. Only had this one 2 weeks and used the headphone jack less than 10 times.I know the support minded will want a go at this so let me answer your questions before you ask.Yes I've restarted all three phones multiple times.No my phones aren't rooted.Yes I've tried lots of different headphones, e
Not sure if this is a Maxx anymore...

Hi all, new to the forum and such. So long story short, I bought my Razr Maxx from Best Buy mobile with their insurance/replacement plan. Eventually, my headphone jack wasn't working, the gps wasn't working, the thing that tells it which direction its facing stopped working unless I rebooted it (even then only worked for a few hours), etc. So I took it to them and they did a factory reset, headphone jack still wasn't working so they ordered me a replacement phone. I went to pick up my replacement phone, the guys hands it to me, and I immediately hand it back to him telling him this isn't a Razr Maxx, its just a Razr. It was waaaaaay too thin and had that annoying bump on the back. The geek squad guy was confused as heck and one of the other tech's had to tell him that I was right. So they sent it back and ordered yet another one. This time around it is definitely a Razr Maxx based on the outside dimensions (no bump and the whole phone is the same thickness). However, when I go to Model Number in the About Phone tab, it still just says Droid Razr, not Droid Razr Maxx. What the freak?
