I use linux and had this problem but I have found that it was the cable.
apply some pressure to the top of jack and push it towards the the back of
the radio.
I found over time that the cable was so cheap that it needed to be replaced.
I bought new cables off of eBay that have the Baofeng sticker on them, they
work great, no push needed
