Default Headphone port not working

So I used the phone in the pool earlier. (Pics and vids were great!) allowed it to fully dry before using the headphone port. It just doesn't work anymore. Could my headphone port be broken? Or should I put it in rice?

get a piece of kitchen roll coil it up so it fits in the jack and dry it off also use some compressed air if you have it. I had the same problem and this fixes it every time

Does it can't work after you put it into pool?
It is possible it happens due to software problem.

Putting it in rice did the trick! It works fine after putting it into the pool. Probably some water didn't get dried up inside the headphone port.

I know this sounds strange, but run it under more water. I'm currently on holiday and been using it in water loads, almost every time I get in the pool, my headphones stop working. I thought maybe it would be crap in the pool water or something so switched it off, ran clean tap water directly into the port, blew the excess out and voila! Worked again. Not sure why but it's happened 3 times now and it's been spot on after a CLEAN water rinse and quick dry.
