Unhappy [Q] Headset Icon persistent on status bar - Unable to hear through earpiece

Dear All,

I have E975 International Version with JB and flashed KK. I had a strange issue 2 days before: All of a sudden I saw a headset icon in status bar and I couldn't find any settings to remove it. Because of this I was not able to hear anything through phone's earpiece when attending a call.. I had to use my earphones and after the call ended and I removed the earphones, still the icon was showing and still the same condition.

This happened to me on JB also, so, I did wipe cache, dalvik cache, hard reset everything... none of them worked.. so, I switched off the phone for some 4 to 5 hours and rebooted it.. now the Icon is gone.. but unfortunately when I did hard reset, my internal memory is wiped, luckily i had a backup so no issues...

So, my question is, have anyone of you had this issue before? is this ROM specific? because it happened to me on JB and on KK(both stock kdz flashed through flash too)

Now, I'm back to JB(flashed through kdz). Im using open europe v10H. my earlier kk was german v20A.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you all
