Why is my headphone jack not working?

    Everytime I put any kind of headphone in my phone it will either play from the phone speakers, freeze my phone (and the second I take the headphones out it unfreezes), or the whole phone shuts off and I have a hard time turning it back on. This is a problem because I'm constantly listening to music and now I can't. :( please help! Thanks.

    What phone do you have? Possibly a bit of fluff or something is in the headphone socket, making the sensor in there work intermittently. Try cleaning it out.

    I have an LG ally. It could be fluff and ill check. I thought it might be something internally since it keeps shutting off and freezing and stuff

    Probably Software Driver issue .Headphone jacks can act weirdly :) .
    .
    Can you do a factory reset ?
    If it's under warranty take it to your service centre to get it repaired

    Try rooting and installing custom ROM ;)
