Confirm that the physical headphone jack works:

2. Test earphones: Confirm you can hear audio files (music or video audio) or hear someone on a phone call with you.

3. Test mic: recording a memo and playing it back, or calling someone to confirm they can hear you.
4. If both work, you can eliminate the headphone jack as the issue, if either fail, you will need to test swiper on another working supported device to confirm if the swiper is functioning.



Confirm that the swiper works on another supported device:

1. Find a device on which the swiper or other swipers have been known to work on in the past, or one that is supported and test on it. Confirm whether or not the swiper has issues on it as well.
