SOUND AUDIBLE FROM ONE SIDE ONLY
Earphone playing audio to one-side only
I can hear audio only from one side of my earphone.
If you hear from only one side with the earphone that came with the cell phone, either the phone
jack is not fully inserted, phone jack wire is broken or the phone’s audio Sound Balance may be
the root cause.
How to fix
Ensure the earphone jack is fully inserted in its respective slot. If you happen to get scratchy sound
coming and going from the side audio is missing whenever slightly touching the earphone jack that
usually indicates wire inside has snapped offering little to no connectivity. New earphones will then
be required if situation persists.
If everything is fine with the earphone jack then proceed to sound balance verification.
Go to Settings > Accessibility and check Sound Balance. Make sure the slider is in the center.
If not, move it left or right to balance the audio.
