    Default Problem with earphone connection

    Although I do not have any earphones connected to my Samsung Galaxy S3, the phone thinks I do and has no sounds audible. If I do plug in earphones, they work fine. But, unplugging them does not remove the earphones connected icon, nor does normal sound return. Is there a setting that will correct this problem, or should I seek repair? I have tried powering down and re-booting, with no success. Any suggestions?

    This first thing they (Sprint) will do is factory reset your phone. If it's software related that will likely fix it. If I were you, I would perform a factory reset and if it doesn't fix it take it in for repair.

    Thanks, Skunkape 60. I don't know what I did, but the earphone problem magically went away and the phone is operating normally. I think I will still take it in for a factory reset just to be sure (relatively) that it won't do it again!

    Don't take it in for that. Go to settings / backup and reset at the bottom of the choice to factory reset. Very easy... Even a caveman can do it.

    If it does pop up again. Try an app in the market called SoundAbout. It has helped a lot of S3 users with this issue.

    I'm trying to connect my earphones to Samsung, but the icon won't pop up. the earphones don't work, either. I can use them fine on any other device– but the Samsung phone is just stubborn. How can I get my earphones to connect to my Samsung phone?

    Don't know if this will help with no sound, but for the pop-up, try this:

    Go to Settings / Display, make sure Page Buddy is set to 'On,' then tap that row and make sure Earphones page is checked.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.
