I don’t know if you have noticed or not, but the reality is that the LG G5 complaints are increasing the number of pages on the tech forums. I am also an LG G5 user and as you’d only imagine, I have been digging around the tech forums to find the LG G5 common problems and fixes for them.
Well, no one can deny that LG is nothing more than a company whose smartphone products have gone from bottom of the barrel to high-end in no less than four years. This is impressive, but its devices have their fair of glitches and issues and LG G5 cannot be the exception.
Some of them is about the fact that certain owners are complaining about the fact that they hear a loud hissing or static when they plug the phone into a car system via the AUX port. At the same time, it seems that the problem also happens with the headphones. I am sure that you are thinking that it’s time to find some fixes and here I am to help you.
How to Solve LG G5 UX or Headphone Static Issues:
- First of all, verify that the cable is fully inserted and sits correctly in its place;
- It might be a compatibility problem between your car and the LG G5, so you have two options to exclude this possibility from the start. Check with your car manufacturer about a firmware update for your car system and you should also go to Settings > General > About phone > Update Center > Software Update and make sure the device is updated as well;
- You should try plugging your LG G5 into another car. You can also try a different phone in your car and test another cable to try and narrow down the problem;
- Sometimes just plugging in the headphones in also causes the problem, so you should just try a different set of headphones;
- Some people have managed to solve the error by simply opening up the Music app and playing the Life’s Good HIFI file and then pausing it and going back to their music or audio source. This will only work if you’re using a service like Spotify, not if you’re playing the music stored on the G5;
- This is not only happening to you, but it’s what you get from a typical phone from 2016. That is why you should consider buying a ground loop noise isolator. There are plenty of options on Amazon, and they cost around $10, so they won’t empty your bank account;
- If you don’t want so spend any money, then factory resetting your LG G5 is the final solution that I can think of. The reset is good after receiving major Android updates or even carrier security updates. Despite of the fact that the update seems to be installed correctly, the process of replacing the old operating system doesn’t always go as you hope for and even if the smallest thing isn’t working properly, this affects the entire device.
