    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.

    This is not a settings issue. The contacts inside the headphone jack are shorted out, which tells the phones a set of headphones is connected.
    This can happen due to a tiny drop of water, humitity, a sliver of aluminum foil, etc.

    The easiest way to clear and fix this issue is to blast a bit of air from a compressed air can into the headphone jack. You can get compressed air cans for a few bucks at any local office supplies store, Fry's, Office Depot, etc.
    Just a short blast or two will clear the problem.
    Or Blow air with your mouth for few times!!

    I had the same problem with my S4 mini on a rainy day while I was waiting the bus. While I was browsing suddenly the icon and the sign for headphones connected showed up without any headphones being connected.

    What I did is to put the headphones jack and twist it a couple of times. It worked

    Hi,
    this was the easiest way for the problem of having the headphone icon when it is not plugged in also. I just took my earphone and tightly plugged that in and I pressed it and twisted it . And when I saw my display , that icon was vanished . I think it was some air lock.
    BUT IT REALLY WORKED .
    THANKS A LOT ,
