Default Sound only through headphones


yesterday we've done some sport with music on. My shirt was full sweaty. The phone was all the time under the shirt.
Now I have the problem that the phone cant recognize when the headphones are pluged in or out. The symbol for it is all the time on the notifcation bar. I can hear only through the headphones anymore. Sounds like for the alarmclock are working normaly.

After I arrived at home the phone rebooted about 10 times in a row and had no signal for about 1h. I dont know If there is now the problem because of the sweat..

I tryed to clean the headphone jack but it doenst help. Any suggestions are welcome.

Try powering the phone off for a while and flash a clean install of the rom. It may or may not help. If it's a hardware issue (chances are there), then you may have to get it repaired.

Turn off the phone and put it in a sealed bag with a drying brick or some plain rice to help dry it out. There may be moisture inside the phone that's causing the problem.
