    Help! I recently bought a new HTC One V so I went to try out the headphones. I plugged them in and a strange icon appeared (looks like a phone with lines underneath it) and no sound will go through the headphones. The external speaker works fine but I'd really like to use headphones for music! Any help or definition of what the icon means is greatly appreciated!

    The only notification icon I see with a phone and lines is the vibrate icon. I doubt this is what you are seeing so if you can give a bit more info maybe we can help determine if it's a software or hardware issue.

    Stock or Custom Rom

    Media Player you are using

    Can you post a screen shot or take a picture of phone and post.

    Have you tried other headphones

    Anything else you think might be helpful

    Your probably talking about the "beats" icon orange circle with a dot in the middle.

    It means the beat fonction is on.
