Ok, last night. i was playing a game and lost sound.. then i checked my status bar and headphone icon was on but i dont have any headphones plugged in.... when the icon is up, i have no sound at all. It acts like i have my headphones plugged in.
restarted the phone. icon gone and sound was back. Then a few minutes later icon pops back up.
So i decided to plug the headphones in and it auto dials my last call.. wtf.. but when i unplug it, it cancels the call....
I flashed a stock rom.. i even done the RUU mod we have on the general section. no luck.
anybody experience this problem??? or a fix possibly?

It turns off and on so random and how long it stays on. Software issue or hardware.




UPDATE. i checked further into the headphone jack. one prong was stuck and it wouldn't pop back out.. i rarely used this jack also.. hmmm, build quality eh... only had this phone a little over 14days. sucks..

I had this exact thing happen last night! No idea why, either. I did a couple reboots and a restore but still came back. Then it just magically stopped and hasn't happened since. Would love to know what's going on, too.

I was worried that I had water damage because shortly before I saw it happen I had an awning full of water collapse and dump on my head. I'm guessing that didn't happen to you so that's probably not it!

Solution here
Hi folks, I just had this problem and I know the feels.
Now you don't have to worry, the solution is this:
Try using your radio built-in application over and over again. Doing this will make your mobile to search recursively for a headphone/headset signal. Since there is no headphone actually plugged in, your mobile will eventually detect that in fact, this is true and will exit that obnoxious headset mode.

Hope this can help you all guys.

Pd. I'm not sure if I used English wrong, if that happens to be the case: sry for bad English. Lol.
