    Default Headphone icon in notification bar

    My daughter's phone has the headphone icon showing in the notification bar; however, no headphones are connected. I have no idea how to remove it from the notification bar or why it is there. Help please.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Not sure. I did a hard reset, but initially it didn't remove the icon. After leaving the phone alone for about 30minutes, the icon had disappeared. If she did accidentally turned on the hearing impaired, how do I go back to disable it...just in case it returns.

    Thanks again in advanced!

    Are you sure it's the head phone icon or is it the hearing impaired icon (official name??). She may have turned it on by accident.

    Go to settings, call, and the option is hearing aids. Have a good one.

    No, I am having the same problem! I don't have the 'hearing aid' symbol, I verified and turned it on/off to make sure it wasn't the same thing!

    I have no headset, but this symbol appeared a few hours ago, and have no clue how it got there and hot to turn it off!

    Help!

    The headphone jack has a small switch that is for detecting a headphone. If this switch got jammed, due to dirt or something, the phone may show the icon even after unplugging the headphone. This happened on an old HTC phone of mine, and i noticed this phone has the same swtich.

    Take a look into the jack and very carefully try cleaning it. This might be covered by Sprint and they might hook you up with a new phone if there is a problem when you plug in a headphone.

    shut phone,, take a qutip, dip in rubbing alcohol, squeeze out any excess off the qutip,, insert into headphones jack and turn A few times,,, allow to dry for 5 mins (just in case) and turn on. I have fixed this same issue in many different smartphones with this method .
