Why is my tablet not working with my earphones?

I have a Samsung  galaxy tab3 lite and when I plug my earphones in it comes out through the speakers for some reason and usually the earphones I have works with my tablet. I have tried to reset my tablet and no changes.

Hi @gamergrlashley ,

Does the headphone icon appear on the display when you plug in the headphones?

If not it may be that the headphone jack is either loose from the systemboard or is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Here’s a link to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite Motherboard Replacement guide.

It is helpful as it shows how to open the tablet to gain access to the headphone socket.

Not quite sure but I think that the socket is an SMD type component (surface mounted device) mounted on the systemboard, so you’ll need SMD tools and expertise to carry out the repair.

If this seems too daunting, contact a reputable, professional mobile phone repair service and ask for a quote to repair the tablet.

This has happened before I think. It did used to show the headphone symbol at the top.


Hi @gamergrlashley ,

Inside the earphone socket there is a contact that operates when the earphone plug is inserted to indicate to the audio controller in the tablet that the audio needs to be switched away from the speakers and to the earphones.

Since the icon is no longer appearing there may be a problem with the contact or the socket is disconnected from the systemboard.

If the contact is faulty the socket cannot be repaired, it has to be replaced.

If the socket is disconnected from the systemboard this can be repaired by SMD soldering it back on.


I won't be able to get it fixed unfortunately until I'm able to get a new tablet. Would like Bluetooth earbuds work with it since it's not actually connected?


Hi @gamergrlashley ,

It should work as the tablet only can't recognize when the earphones have been plugged in. Connecting via BT is a different process not involving the earphone socket.

You have nothing to lose by trying it ;-)


ok so today I got some Bluetooth earphones and they really work with my tablet, it was confusing though, but I got it.
