My Palm Centro sat in a small puddle for a few seconds, and the only thing that was wrong was that it was, like every other poster here: Stuck in Headset mode. For 3 days I read posts / forums all over the place, getting similar ideas about inserting/pulling out the speaker cord rapidly / soft or hard resetting / pulling out at a certain point etc etc.

The real problem was that inside the 2.5mm jack there is a little microswitch that enables / disables the headset function, and if it gets stuck open- nothing can override it. --- Again --- 3 full days of twisting, pulling out, screwing with the jack and wasn't able to get anything out of it- was about to say screw it.

THE ANSWER!!! -- I read somewhere that using a Qtip could increase my chances of snagging the switch down; I doubled my odds and sprayed the **** out of it with WD-40 (with the fore-idea that the switch got all gunked up and is stuck in the open position)

--To test it out, start playing a music file or anything that should originally go through the main speaker (or just call your Voicemail)

-- I got the tip wet with the wd-40, and since I have a 2.5mm jackport (not even the qtip stick fits in the hole) I started twisting the cotton off of the stick into an elongated portion of the wet cotton; long enough to fit in the port. I stuck it in (twisting in the same fashion as the twisted cotton) and just started twisting. About a minute worth then I yanked out and-- WaLaa! MUSIC

Only thing that worked in 3 days; I figure the individual cotton strands snagged on the thing and pulled it down, although I contribute it finally moving to the WD-40.

My gf had the same issue with her LG265. all we did was stick a toothpick in it and apply slight pressure downward while pulling out in a raking motion. it came unstuck immediately. Hope this helps!

    just stick a toothpick in it and apply pressure down and pull out in a raking motion to unstick the mechanism that tells the phone whether a headset is in our out. dropping a phone can sometimes jar this loose. Hope this helps!

Try connecting your headset again and then disconnect it after a few seconds. I think there's just an issue on the headset outlet.

My lg ryhthm phone got wet and now its stuck in headset mode

Your phone's headphone jack port is shorting. Try turning the phone off then dry it with a hair dryer for 5 minutes. Turn it back on and see if it helps, if it doesn't well you now have a permanent damage on your phone, its probably the headphone port controller, its busted...

The put most headsets in pairing mode, turn headset OFF, then hold the power button until it goes into pairing mode as discribed above.

My LG Voyager stuck on headset mode

Turn your phone off and remove the battery. Also tap the headset port (where a headset would normally plug into).

When you reboot it back up it should fix itself. If it doesn't you have a hardware problem (its physically broken) you can see if its under its 1 yr warranty to get your free replacement, or if its older - there's always cell phone insurance.

Purple light

The purple (majenta) light usually means it is in pairing mode. Is it possible that the button is stuck pressed in??


1. Ensure the headset is turned off (indicator light not blinking and headset boom is closed)
2. Press and hold the Call button. After about 4 or 5 seconds, the indicator light becomes steadily lit in magenta
3. Release the Call button and immediately open the headset boom. The indicator light remains lit in magenta.

If the indicator light is flashing in blue or not steadily lit when opening the
headset boom, repeat steps 1 through 3

I have the exact same problem. I suggest you flush the LG piece of **** down the toilet, and never purchase from LG or bluetooth again.
