Nokia 6085 - unable to clear headset icon on display
My Nokia 6085 shows the headset icon on the display. I don't use a bluetooth or headset, nor is the bluetooth setting on. When this appears, neither party can hear, although the speaker works. AT&T wireless is stumped. The Nokia manual does not even show a headset icon in the icon description list. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!!

fold the phone and look at the headset/data connector on the bottom. are there any debris, metal flecks, corrosion on the contacts? If so, try picking out any junk with a toothpick (careful, be gentle) and/or cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser. Pay special attention to pins 2 and 3 - if they are shorted out then the phone will think there is a headset present. see:
It is the microphone that needs to be replaced. Usually it can be replaced no problem, I have done so on the Nokia 6085 myself. But yes, the reason the bluetooth works is because it has its own mic and the mic for the handset has gone bad.
are you using a bluetooth headset? if yes then check whether u have switched on your bluetooth headset & also your phone & bluetooth headset must be reachable, that is, both should be within range as mentioned in your bluetooth headset manual.
If you have lost the pairing on your phone with the headset follow these simple steps below: • Setting the headset into pairing mode 1) Ensure the headset is fully charged 2) The headset must be switch off 3) Press and hold the on button for +- 8 seconds until the light flashes red-blue 4) The headset is now in pairing mode • Searching for the headset on the phone 1) Go to “settings” or “connections” 2) Select Bluetooth, then options 3) Select Devices and click add 4) The phone should search for any available Bluetooth devices and display what was found 5) Select the Explorer 3XX device and click add 6) You will be required to enter in a pass code which is standard ‘0000’ 7) If successful then the headset will start flashing BLUE every few seconds. 8) If it’s a Samsung or Nokia phone you will need to “AUTHORIZE” headset on the device. • The headset is now paired with the phone
Your display circuit is broken, even if the LCD-panel,
seems to be ok the display is damaged.
This is a very common problem in Nokia phones.
The only way to fix this is to change the display.
You need a T-6 Torx Skrewdriver to do the job.
