How to Turn Off Headphone Mode on Android

Basic tips and tricks to turn off Headphones stuck on Google Nexus, LG, HTC, or other phones.

A Magic Fix

This fix, which seems a bit crazy and unbelievable, has been discussed a lot on many Android forums such as androidcentral and webosnation. It sounds incredible but has proved to be feasible by many Android users who are disturbed by this nasty issue. Anyway, it is worth trying. Here are the steps.

The key of this method is graphite powder. You can buy a tube of graphite powder in a hardware store, or you can easily shave some graphite from a mechanical pencil.
1. Turn off your Android device.
2. Gently pour a couple puffs of graphite into headset jack.
3. Turn phone upside down to let excess fall out.
4. Plug the headphones in and out several times.
5. Restart the phone.

Now, enjoy your new and problem fixed phone.

Download of this method: Leaving too much graphite in the jack may cause your Android phone cannot connect to earphones any more. So you should get all excessive graphite out of the headphone jack.
