Plugged in headphones for call, now earpiece doesn't work
I plugged in my Nokia 7370 headset in anticipation of a call (this was the first time I used the headphones), but now that I've removed them, my phone's earpiece sound no longer works. I cannot hear callers speaking, nor the sounds from pressing the numbers. The ringtone and alarm sounds still work, I can still hear callers fine through the headphones, and I've checked all the volumes. It's almost like the earpiece turned off for headset use, and now it won't turn back on (or else I shorted something out). Any help? Many thanks!
Re: Plugged in headphones for call, now earpiece doesn't...
Same here. I tried many things but cannot ring it back to headset mode. I continuously see the headphone icon shown in the phone, so it seems that the phone thinks that it is still connected to earphones. Sometimes, it works fine, but mostly it does not. If I connect the phone on bluetooth earphones, it works fine. Any help will be appreciated.

these are fairly passive in that if a headphone or earpiece is plugged in, they switch the output from the internal speaker to the external speaker. So, it's usually one of a few problems.
The jack is mucked up, and needs replaced.
The headphone plug wires have a broken connection
The headphone needs power to amplify, and that's not working.
If trying another headphone or earpiece you know is working doesn't work, it's the jack itself. They can only handle so many uses before they either fail closed, or open or completely. Depending on which one, either:
neither speakers nor headphones work.
only speakers work
only headphones work
Replacement necessitates opening the case and replacing the jack. For that, there's no help.
the volume control for the headset is typically the same one you use for the phone. plug the headset in again & use the volume control to increase/decrease volume as you require, remove the headset and use the same volume control to increase/decrease the volume on the device..
Is your headset plugged into the jack on your headset for speakers? If so, they won't play as long as the headset is plugged into them. Once you unplug them, they will play again. It's an either/or situation, as they assume nobody wants headphones and speakers to play at the same time.
If that's NOT the case, please supply more information.
Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters. Original iPhone only: 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:
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. If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth). 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. If restarting the iPhone doesn't resolve the issue, try restoring the device.
On the back of the computer or front there is a GREEN Jack for the earphones and a PINK Jack for the Mike. If you have the speakers plugged into the GREEN jack you will have to pull it out and incert the headphone jack into the GREEN color jack and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud
