    I read about this happening to someone else on another forum. When the headphone jack dried out the notification stopped. Apparently this happened on the Samsung galaxy S4 active too. A YouTube reviewr called Erica Griffin spoke about it in her review of the S5.

    It will clear up once the jack dries out. It's not harmful, just annoying. It would be nice if Samsung included a silicon plug for the jack, especially since I use BT headphones and don't really use the jack.

    I've had the same problem with my note 3, I was out taking photos yesterday in the rain and it must have let some water into the phone, so the earphones kept connected and disconnecting too might take the battery out and put it in next to the heater to dry it out

    I don't have that problem because I don't submerge my S5 in water.

    I posted a similar problem on this forum last week. I does seem to be harmless, clears after drying out, but very annoying.

    I think the water resistant thing is only made to save the phone in case you drop it in water, the phone isn't 100% protected and it isn't advised to take a shower with it.

    Give it some time to let it dry out, and it will be back to working fully again!

    I dropped my phone in snow a couple of weeks ago getting out of my car (oops) but I dried it out right away, and I'm only just now getting this problem today? If anyone reads this, any suggestions because it's really annoying.

    Look inside the headphone jack with a light and see if there is anything in there. I noticed I had the problem a couple of days ago because my S5's headphone jack was filled with lint from a new pair of jeans I was wearing that day. I carefully cleaned it out with some precision tweezers I have and the error went away.

    I know the Samsung galaxy s5 is dust proof, water resistant. Never once did I ever want to submerge my phone under water. I'm content with knowing if I need to pull my phone out in the rain or accidentally drop it in a puddle it should be ok. I watch other people do it on YouTube that's good enough for me. Why take the risk?

    After having an argument on the phone with Verizon tech support regarding the water resistance of the S5 (She was claiming that if there is water damage, the warranty is void), I went in the Verizon store Wednesday and, having had this problem on several occasions, I asked again about it. The tech I spoke with was very knowledgeable. He started off right away stating that the S5 WAS "water resistant", a direct conflict with Verizon's tech support rep. He stated that his S5 does the same thing and is fine once it dries out. He did go on to say that the ear jack is isolated from the main part of the phone, so if water does get into the ear jack, it will not seep into the rest of the phone. The water damage he thinks that the tech rep on the phone was talking about is water damage inside the seal that is on the back cover. So, even though it is annoying, I feel confident that the phone will not be disabled because of this issue.

    Yes, the above is true. The jack hole (official lingo? lol) has a flap on the inside out of sight that is water tight. Just don't use headphones underwater.

    To my knowledge my phone has no water damage and has never been submerged. However, about 3 to 4 months ago I dropped it, causing damage to the bottom right corner, so my warranty is voided.
    Today for the first time, my phone started acting like my headphones were plugged in.
    Called Verizon and went through trouble shooting - consisted of soft and hard resets - None of these things corrected the issue.
    I attempted to plug in the headset and unplug it to see if that would trip it to turn off the ear phones - worked for about 30 seconds, then issue repeated.
    Then I got a can of dust off (ya know, for computer keyboards and what not, the spray can of air) and sprayed out the headphone jack.
    Instantly the headphone icon went away, and thus far, the problem hasn't come back. Phone is working like a peach again. Thought I'd share in case it works for someone else having the same problem.

    I tried the suggestion of taking the dust can used for keyboards and it worked to clear the headphones connected issue. I'll keep that in mind if it happens again.

    Thanks for the Q tip trick! Worked quickly and flawlessly!

    Can of compressed air, Q tip and putting it in a bag of rice or a bag with silica packets over night for a few days should clear it up. Even though it is stated as being water resistant don't test the claim. It is too easy for Samsung or the phone store to say the back cover must not have been completely sealed so water got in and it will not be covered. Even though it has the claim I'm very careful with my phone and don't want to find out if it's actually true or not.
