In this short note, I have decided to collect the top 10 tips and tricks that help to fix the issue of no sound in phone headphones with little blood. I don’t claim to be the ultimate truth, but the following “trifle” covers most of the causes of the current problem. So… 👌

Let’s get to the subject…

👉 Tip 2

If you have wired headphones, pay attention to the condition of the wire, especially near the jack (👇).

  2. then dip it in alcohol;
  3. then, gently insert the toothpick into the audio jack and perform a few rotational movements;
  4. as a rule, all dust and debris settles on the cotton. By the way, if after the first cleaning it was dirty, the procedure should be repeated …
