S3 thinks earphones are connected
I was at the hot tub with some of my roommates and had my phone off to the side, because we had been trying to get a hold of one of our friends who was out tonight. One of my roommates saw a dead bug and splashed it out.. right onto my phone.
It didn't have any problems right away, but about five minutes later I glanced at it and noticed that it was under the rather false impression that earphones were connected. First instincts were to restart the phone. This didn't fix it, so I tried plugging in headphones and then unplugging them. Sound came out of the headphones when they were plugged in, but the phone didn't recognize when they were unplugged. After googling, I made a call and set the phone to speakerphone, which successfully took it off headset mode.
However, once the call ended, I noticed that I could no longer get headphones to be detected when I DID plug something in, though sound does come out of the main speakers now.
So I restarted my phone again, and voila, it is back in headphone mode again and won't leave it.
What should I do?
