    I was using my PB with headphones over the weekend. I took out the headphones and wanted to watch a video using the PB's speakers, when the video played, no sound. I tried different videos - still no sound; went to the "Sounds and Notifications" and played with settings - still no sound; rebooted - still no sound and shut down, left it for a few minutes, restarted - still no sound.

    What I've realized is that the PB still thinks there are headphones connected. If i re-connect headphone, i get sound out of the headphone. I remove the headphones and disconnect them from the PB - PB still thinks headphones are attached.

    Anyone ever have this problem? Any help would be appreciated.

    Just an idea here but have a look in the headphone jack and see if the contacts seem damaged or bent. The only thing I can think of is that one of the contacts is shorting and causing the PlayBook to think the headphones are inserted.

    My phone did this once and I had to go into settings and tell it to use the handset or speakerphone. Is there a way to change these settings on the PB?

    Thanks for the advice - low and behold, I just picked up my PB about a minute ago and everything is fine.

    Used to have this from time to time. While annoying, a reboot would clear up the issue.
