Default Note 10.1 2014 headphone jack problem


I bought the Note 10.1 2014 upon release in Canada and it has worked fine until recently. The tablet does not properly recognize my earphones, when I insert the earphones it will tell me "headphones connected" and the symbol would appear top left and than quickly disappear. I either have to fiddle with the earphone by turning it or push it right in for it to work but it will stop working there after.

I have reset the tablet and I have tried 4 perfectly good headphones and the result is the same. I called Samsung and they told me to get Samsung earphones.

Anyone else experiencing this? Would Samsung earphones fix this or is the headphone jack broken?

Thank you

Hello, bring this thread back from the dead
I didnt indicate this in my original post but I got the headphone jack problem a couple of days after I updated firmware via odin, got it fixed by sending to samsung.
I updated to kitkat via Odin a couple of days ago and now my headphone jack messed up again, keeps on reconnecting upon slightly moving the headphones.

Is this a coincidence?

Are you sure it's not the headphones? Have you tried a different brand?

Look in the headphone jack for lint or other debris.

Nothing wokred

2nd time in three months this has happened, getting really annoying.

On a side note, anyone know if I can revert the firmware back to the Canadian version 4.3 (currently have kitkat 4.4)? If so, where can I find the firmware.
