    Nokia 6300

    Need some help with my phone. I cant get the headphones to work. it keeps playing music through the main speaker. I tried using a headphone adaptor but that didnt work either. Anyone got any ideas or know how to fix it?

    Did you get the adapter from ebay by any chance? They rarely work. I have a 6300 too but use Bluetooth speakers and headphones instead. Go to enhancements and switch to headphone. It ought to do this automatically.

    the headphone i got with the phone dont work either. and i dont have a headphone option in enhancements :-(

    Just checked mine.

    Go to Settings
    Scroll to Enhancements
    Your should see four items in menu:
    Headset
    Handsfree
    Charger
    Headphones.

    If any of these are missing, then I suspect that some of the software is not installed. In that case, I'd return it to the shop.


    PS. You could try resetting the phone to the way it was when it left the factory (factory settings) but you'll lose everything you have installed unless you have backed it up to the SD card.

    missing handsfree and headphone option. ive had the phone for a while now (14/05/08). still have the receipt and everything sealed in the box. do you think they will take it back? does this count as a fault?

    I got them from a deal on here several months ago. These are the ones, but I'm sure I only paid around £40.00 for them (can't remember the company, but it could be Play.)

    Give it a go, you wont know without trying.

    Also, if you install the Nokia Software on your computer, you can doenload and install the updated phone software direct from Nokia. I'm pretty sure this will fix the problem. You will need a Nokia USB cord (the others don't work). I got mine for a few quid off eBay.
