    Hi all

    strange issue, it's been bugging me for the past week.
    I just got my Captivate and I cant listen to any music with the display off.

    I did scavenge the internet for a similar issue but cant find anything related.

    First, tests were done on a factory reset device. no 3rd party apps (NO task manager). only what came with it (I'm with Rogers)

    If I start the stock music player and turn off the screen, the music will stop playing after 2-3 seconds.
    Turning the screen back on, I see the music is stopped.

    Now this happens only with the earphones plugged.
    If I do the same test with the internal speaker, the music continue playing fine.

    I tried multiple earphones type. they are fully inserted.

    seems to be a sw thing as everything is fine with the display ON, I can listen to music with the earphone without any issue.

    I tried other music player with sleep/lock control (poweramp) winamp,...
    all have the same behaviour

    I'm not sure what else to try.

    anyone else seen this problem ?

    might it be a faulty jack that activate the inexistent music control that some earphone have when the screen lock and automatically detect a ghost "pause" ?

    thanks for any insignt !
