Last Week got an issue with my own HTC Desire with Headsets/ Headphones whatever you call it – It suddenly stopped detecting my original headsets which I have got with my HTC Desire. So I started tweaking with stuff & trying to check all hardware to find probable solution. And finally I got problem solved with very simple solution but it cant be similar problem with you so go through this procedure mentioned here to get perfect solution.
Different Problems & Solution with HTC Desire Headset & Headphone Jack
Before trying anything – try your headset somewhere else like in laptop or other phone & see if it is working. I tested mine with my Netbook & they were working fine.
Headset Not detected by HTC Desire
1.The very simple solution to this problem is – Turn off your HTC Desire & Then Start it back. And see if your headphones are detected this time. I am not joking around – it really works well. Same trick worked for 5 different HTC cellphone tested including my own.
2. If this trick does not work for you just try to hard reboot your phone. (NOTE: All data in phone including contacts will be erased. So do a back up first.)
How to hard reset your HTC Desire:
Turn off your Phone > Hold down Volume Down > then press the Trackball button >Select clear data
Headphone Remote Buttons Not Working
Also got this issue reported by some of our readers, that there headphones are working fine but remote buttons with HTC desire headphones for quick PLAY/PAUSE, CALL buttons not working. So we digged a little bit and found that this issue is caused mostly because of third party installation of music apps like Winamp etc.,
Simple solution to this problem is Go to your Third party app settings & find some option related to heaphone detection & tick it.
In Winamp you can go to settings and Turn ON option named Control Headset
If nothing works just uninstall all your music apps & reinstall one by one again and see if it works.
Hard reset or Hard Reboot would be another option which you can try at your own risk. Don’t forget to backup your data before trying it.
