Motorola Droid Bionic :: Losing Wired And Bluetooth Headphone For Non-phone Audio?

Sep 26, 2011

Occasionally, I will lose both the wired and bluetooth headphones. My bluetooth headphones will work for the phone, but not for game or music player audio.When I disconnect the headphones, the speaker works fine. When I reconnect them, I still get nothing, but again, after disconnecting, the speaker works.Rebooting the phone corrects the issue.The best I can relate this to is muting the phone during a meeting.I have use the volume rocker and my "Volume Control" app.If I mute it, and put it back quickly, it works. It's when I've had it muted for an hour or so that I see the problem.

Motorola Droid Bionic :: Wired Headset Will Not Work In Bluetooth Environment

Sep 16, 2011

I have found it almost impossible to get a wired headset to work on my bionic when in my car (which has built in bluetooth, and which is bonded to the phone just fine). The only way I can make the wired headset take precedence over the bluetooth, and/or the phone's speaker phone, is to:

1. Make a call in the car (any mode).
2. Plug in headset.
3. Click on the phone's speaker icon (headset works for 1/2 second before sound reverts to bionic's speakerphone).
4. Unplug and plug the headset into the bionic, often 2 or 3 times.

Obviously this sucks and would cause a terrible accident if one were driving and doing all these procedures. I have read every documentation on the phone to no avail. I have called Motorola twice, to no avail (and was hung up on by the tech), and called Verizon tech, who also hung up on me.

Motorola Droid :: Razr M Headphone Audio Noise While Car Charging

Sep 17, 2012

I frequenly charge my phone in my car while listing to music, through the car's AUX port. It worked flawlessly with my Droid2, but with the Razr M, there is noise when music is not playing. When music is playing, even with a very quiet passage, there is no noise. It is only when the music app is not sourcing music (I can't remember if there is noise if the music is just paused). When sitting at the home screen with no music app running, there is definitely noise. The noise I'm hearing sounds like CPU interference noise. But, car electircal noise must also be coming through the charging circuit. I do not have any issue while charging on AC power.

Motorola Droid Bionic :: Eliminate Static Noise From Headphone Jack

Apr 16, 2012

Like many of us, I have experienced the problem of noise from the headphone port of my Bionic. This was prevalent no matter what I was listening too (music, podcast, phone call, etc), and was most noticeable when in the car, plugged into the aux jack of my stereo.

A friend suggested getting a ground loop isolator, and I found one on Amazon for around $12 with free shipping. It arrived on Friday, and let me tell you, THE DIFFERENCE IS AMAZING! All the noise is gone, and my music sounds significantly better. No more hiss or noise. I didn't realize how much I had gotten used to it being there.

Motorola Droid Razr HD :: Bluetooth Voice Command Dialing/phone Audio?

Nov 25, 2012

if I dial a contact via the Razr's voice command using my Bluetooth headset, the call connects, but neither party can hear audio. If I dial by selecting the contact manually, using the same Bluetooth headset, the call connects normally and audio is fine.The headset is a Jabra 250 and I don't have easy access to another Bluetooth device at the moment. Can't tell if this is a sw or hw issue on the Razr or the headset (which is an older model but still works just fine with original Droid Razr).

Motorola Droid 4 :: Shut Off Phone Mic When Using A Wired Headset?

Mar 9, 2012

When I am using a wired headset with my phone the microphone on the phone remains on and it becomes very noisy; therefore making the use of a wired headset almost impossible. I know I may be able to avoid this by using a blue tooth; however, I need to use a wired headset and not a blue tooth in many situations..!

Motorola Droid Bionic :: How To Get Micro USB Audio To Work

Oct 25, 2011

I recently made the decision to stop using my headphone jack. To listen to audio, I plug my listening devices into th 3.5mm jacks that are located on the different docks. The problem I have is that a lot of the phone sounds still come through the external speaker. For example, I am watching a movie and I get an email, text msg, or phone call. I can't hear this because my headphones are on. If I plug my headphones into the phone's actual headphone jack, I hear all of the sounds. If I am in the car and a call comes in, the voice comes through the speakerphone. I have to manually hit the speaker button and then the audio comes through my car stereo. Does any know if there is a way to make the audio from the micro usb to work the same as the audio on the headphone jack?

Motorola Droid Bionic :: Does The Power / Audio Cable Come With The Car Dock

Sep 8, 2011

Purchased the Bionic and several accessories including the car dock today. When I opened the car dock package, I discovered that the way the Bionic dock is made requires a special micro USB to regular USB cable in order to be able to power the phone while it is in the dock.

This cable is shown in the owners manual for the dock, but was not included in my package. Instead, I got a cable suitable only for plugging the audio from the Bionic headphone jack to the aux input on the car stereo.

Did anyone else get the Bionic car dock? If so, did you get the power / audio cable described in the owners manual or just the audio cable I mention above? I will probably go discuss with Verizon tomorrow too, but just wanted to know if anyone here knows what was supposed to be in the car dock package.

Motorola Droid Bionic :: How To Plug In Headset And Listen To Audio On Speaker

Feb 3, 2012

If one were to listen to FM radio on one's Bionic (assuming this is legal. If it is against the rules, then note I would surely never do that!) do you plug in your earphones (needed as antenna) AND listen on the regular Bionic speakers? Is there a setting for this, or is it impossible to do?

Motorola Droid Bionic :: Bluetooth Mic Not Working In Car?

Feb 10, 2012

I've had my Bionic for a couple weeks now and love 99% of it. My problem is when I try to use hands free calling with my Clarion CX609 head unit, the microphone does not connect. I hear the call through the speakers as expected but the phone is still using the built in microphone. After the OTA release of 5.9.902 I still don't have connectivity to my external microphone.I had a Blackberry Tour and it connected and worked perfectly fine. I would think my Bionic would work in the same manner only better.

Motorola Droid Bionic :: Getting Bluetooth To Auto-reconnect?

Oct 5, 2011

I have paired my Bionic with our courdless phone - Panasonic KX-TG6581 - The cordless phone with bluetooth link works like a headphone device, and calls can be answered on the cordless phone while at home.

My problem is that the Bionic does not reconnect to the phone after a Bionic power cycle - I have to go back to the bluetooth device on the Bionic and hit connect.

My Motorola Droid worked perfectly with this device

Motorola Droid Bionic :: Cannot Control Bluetooth Profiles?

Dec 13, 2011

When my Bionic connects to my car's audio system, it utilizes both the Phone and Media profiles (as found on the "Connect to..." screen). As such, I can use the phone handsfree (which is great, of course) and the phone can stream music to my car's audio system (which is OK, but not something I really use).Problem is, if I use Google Maps for driving directions or Trapster, I cannot hear any of the phone's output unless I leave my audio system on bluetooth. That means I cannot listen to the radio/CD, etc.The "Connect to..."screen shows checkboxes for the two active profiles. Yet, when I deselect the Media profile, it shows as deselected for a second or so and then automatically reselects itself.So, it appears that there is no way to force the phone to stick only to the Phone profile and ignore the fact that the car supports other profiles.

Motorola Droid Bionic :: Restarts During Bluetooth Playback?

Nov 15, 2012

Since the update to ICS I've noticed when I stream audio via Bluetooth from my Bionic that the phone randomly will restart. I have tried three different bluetooth devices (S9-HD, S10-HD, and a bluetooth speaker) and multiple audio apps including but not limited to AmazonMP3, Google Music, and a voice recorder app I use.

It does this spuratily. I can listen for days to something and then it does it and sometimes it even does it over and over again. As an example a few hours ago it did it and then when I resumed listening it did less than 5 mins later. So far it hasn't done it a third time.

I didn't have this issue under Gingerbread.

What I've done:

- Cleared Cache in all audio apps and system recovery

- Tried different versions of music apps

- Factory Reset

- Repaired BT devices

- Formatted both internal and external memory

Is this an ICS bug or did something freaky happen to my Bionic during the update from 2.3 to 4.0?

Motorola Droid Bionic :: Bluetooth Volume Stuck On LOW

Jun 6, 2012

A few weeks back I noticed that the call and music volume on my Bluetooth headset (Jawbone ICON) seemed to stuck at half-volume or less, despite appearing in the volume settins to be at full. This makes the Bluetooth unusable for phone conversations except in the quietest of rooms.

I have reset the ICON on numerous occasions -- blew the pairing off the Bionic (and did a hard reset) but to no avail. Nothing seems to bring the volume back up to the way it was.

Motorola Droid 4 :: Bluetooth Audio - Occasional Skipping In Music

Feb 17, 2012

Just got the Droid 4 yesterday. Using it on Verizon's 4g network, and have discovered a really annoying issue: When playing audio across a bluetooth connection (either to a droid roadster or my 2012 chevy sonic), there are occasional skips in the music. This happens about once every 4-6 seconds, and the cutout is brief, about 1/8th of a second. It does not happen for phone calls, nor do the skips happen if I disable bluetooth and listen via the built in speaker or the headphone jack.

Wifi is disabled, and the source of the audio doesn't seem to matter. I've tried Pandora, Tune-in radio, and locally saved music, same result. It's not the network, as I just upgraded from a Samsung Droid Charge (also a 4g phone) which does not have this issue. I've unpaired from all sources, and re-paired, rebooted the phone, tried while charging / not charging, enabling gps / disabling gps, everything I can think of to isolate the issue. This phone is my in-car entertainment device, and if I can't use it for it's intended purpose, it's useless to me.

ICS update has changed something for the bad on my Droid Bionic!! I can't get music to stream to car radio using the radio controls (2012 Sorento). I had no problems with worked just fine. I tried FDR and got a slight improvement in that the music would stream but I would have to start it with the phone. Tried re-pairing phone and car which didn't work. I have experienced the music stream stopping after 1song or several songs.
