    Just got my dad one of these tablets from Wal-Mart for father's day. The headphone jack would not work. Tried several headphones so thats not the issue, it still plays through the tablets speakers even with the device plugged in.
    So, we returned it, and got an identical tablet, only this one is doing the same thing!
    I cannot figure it out. There seems to be no settings to change, I tried restarting, and it was updated as soon as he got it out of the box. He uses it to listen to podcast in bed so the headphones are an important part for him. Any help is appreciated!

    Model # ONA19TB002
    ONN 8" Android Tablet

    Well, the fact its the second one in a row to do it makes me think factory reset wont work. I mean, it came out of the box like that on both of them. I was hoping there would be a hidden setting ;-;

    there are no settings in android that allows you to turn on and off the head phone jack......at least not that i'm aware of. unless there is a specific setting with your tablet which i'm not familiar with.

    Walmart may have a duff batch, and non of them have working headphone jacks?

    Return it as defective for a refund.

    I bought 2 Onn 8 inch tablets, same problem on both tablets. Reset and tried again, same result. I tried 4 different headphones and 2 sets of ear buds. Nothing worked, just sound out of speaker. Wal mart has a defective product from manufacturer, Well that's my conclusion.

    Sounds like Walmart's OEM were aware of the problem or bug with these tablets. Good to know they've now fixed it with an update.
