Rooted: No
APP Name: Audio Jack

hi Asus,
My Zenfone 5z had audio 3.5mm jack connector problem. It happen when I plug my headphone and the device suddenly shut off.

And when I turn it on again, my audio jack connector doesn't work. I plug my headphone, it nothing happen. It seems like the audio jack connector doesn't detect anything. No icon headphone in top right corner also.

I tried using Audio Switch application from Play Store. It force the output audio from speaker to audio jack. But it only works for the right headphone, not for left headphone.

Any solutions for my problem?

    2. Does the issue appear after any system/apps' download or update?

    3. Could your earphones still be used with other phones? Or have you tried to use your 5Z with other earphones?

    4. Please try to enter "Safe Mode". If the function works well in Safe Mode yet the issue remains out of Safe Mode, please check on any disturbance from the installed 3rd party apps.
