Re: headset problem

Check the bottom of your phone. There is a connector down there, is there any greenish stuff (oxidation) on it ? If so, the connector has been exposed to water. Clean the connector as well as possible, it might have short-circuited the pins and the phone thinks it has the headset plugged in. You might have to take the phone completely apart and clean it from the inside. If theres no greenish stuff on/in the connector, you probably have to visit your local Service-Center for repairs.

The icon stereo headset detected permanent ON, even if the the headset is disconected, for this reason, only is posible to use the phone using the headset.

That usually happens when the port is shorted out. Liquid damage or moisture could cause that problem.

Have a cellphone technician fix the phone for you. Go to a nearby repair shop.

No sound when I get a call or answer a call..? how can I fix this

if you had plugged in a headset or headphones to listen to music the phones a little slower and still thinks the headphones are in and if you take the battery out thats one of the things it saves so you still have the problem. For some people they can fix it by simply plugging the headset or headphones back in and taking them out slowly but for others this dosent always work, so what i found out you can do is stick a small pin in the headphone jack and wiggle it around untill you hear somthing ( have your pocket tunes turned on so you'll know when its working) then once you hear sound just quickley pull the pin out.
Hope this helps

Nokia E61i is displaying the HEADSET symbol and...

That may be because your phone is not able to detect the removal of headset since the last time you removed it.
It still detects a headset at the port.
What you should do is,
Repeatedly connect and disconnect the headset as fast as possible. At one time, it will detect the removal and your problem will be solved. I did this with my phone when I had a similar problem.

Rate if this helps.

If you have a Headset symbol stuck on your screen but have no headset plugged in, its probably down due to the pop port at the bottom of the handset.
This normally shorts or fuses together inside the phone when exposed to some type of liquid.
You will need to take this to a Nokia Care Point and they will need to check inside the handset for you.

If it has got wet, then it is not covered under the manufacturers warranty.

Try drying the pop port with a hairdryer.

i had this happen to me recently and found out whats wrong the phones kinda slow and thinks the headphones are still plugged in and if you take out the battery and put it back in it saves that you had somthing plugged in and dosent help.

Can't hear or be heard during phone calls

This is a known promblem with the treo phones.
If you had a wired headset plugged in to your phone then removed it. The phone thinks the headset is still plugged in. Try putting headset back in phone and removing it. You may need to do this a couple of times. If it still doesn't solve the problem make sure your bluetooth on the phone is turned off. If problem still exists you may have to contact your carrier for replacement.

Good Luck,

No speaker no sound on my treo

I had to have my Treo swapped once already because of a problem with the headset jack. The same problem is happening now - the phone always thinks the headset is plugged in (even when it isn't). That results in phone ringing (unless on virbate / silent mode) but no audio through the speaker in the back, and no speakphone icon appearing.

Given the symptoms you describe I would go to your service provider and (hopefully) get support under warranty - very likely hardware related.

THE phone's Headset Plug is stucked. Try to plug and Un-plug the headset many times for it will release. Best, Play a Music and try this on so when you haer the sound coming from the phone, it means it works

Is there a mute button on this phone?

Try using a headset temporarily.
If the headset works - then its a speaker problem that needs to be fixed.
You could get by with the headset while the service center gets you a replacement.

No more sound from speaker

I had a similar issue on mine. The easy fix was to insert a headset jack and pull it out quickly. I think something got stuck that turns off the speaker after I put the headset in the jack once. If this is the problem, I think you should also see a headset icon when making calls, even though no headset is attached.
