Re: Can't deactivate headset

Did you check the connector on the bottom of your phone ? If theres any greenish stuff (oxidation) on the connectors/pins, there's your problem. This occurs if the connector has been exposed to moisture. If this is the case you can try to clean off as much as you can and it might correct the problem. But if this doesn´t work, the problem might be inside your phone. If you're up for it, you can take it apart yourself and try to clean the inside of your connector. If youre not up for it, or the connector is clean, take the phone down to your local service-center and have them take a look at it.

Re: Can't deactivate headset

The diagnosis above proved to be accurate, however we didn't have to take apart the phone, a good blast with an air duster cleared the problem


An Air duster is a can of pressurised air used to clean IT equipment/keyboards

I am having trouble making calls from my phone, for some reason there is a headphone symbol on the screen that i dont know how to deactivate. please help

Try to connect the headset and remove it. Maybe the jack is activated and so your cellphone is directing the audio to the jack that's why maybe your having trouble making calls.
Hope this helps! -jayps

I dropped my phone now when people call they can't

  1. Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
  2. While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port: ts1630_01.jpg

    To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
  3. If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
  4. If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.

Headset icon problem

Hey mayita,
If ur headset icon is not coming when u insert a headphone, it is due to non-supporting headphone or due to damaged headphone connector.
If u headset icon is continuously showing, it is also due to problem in ur headset connector. At this time, contact mobile technician.
Send me a feedback and rate my solution too.
Dont forget to post a clarification request for ur problem after it is solved.
