My Huawei p20 lite suddenly stopped playing any music over the headphones, notifications can still be heard over the headphones, so I guess it's a software problem?
I've tried other headphones but they don't work either.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Check the music player app. Is there some setting option about headphones?

Double-click the Realtek HD Audio Manager system tray icon. Click the small folder icon (see the image below). Check that the 'Disable front panel jack detection' box is cleared. Now insert the jack plug of either a microphone or headphone into the corresponding front panel socket of your computer.
Those little wings you gently bend around cable with just enough pressure to hold it in place firmly. With a knife remove about a 1/2 inch of the plastic insulation from the headphone cable . You will then see 3 colored wires -black, red, and white. On the small wires remove about 1/8 inch of the insulation.

My Huawei P20 Lite isn't playing music through headphones, but I can still hear notifications. I've tried different steps like restarting and checking settings, but it's not fixed. If this keeps happening, I might need to contact Huawei support or get help from a service center.
