nokia 500 - headphones not showing up when connected


I've recently noticed that the headset that comes included with my Nokia 500 phone is not being identified when connected with the phone. However, it works on numerous other things like my CD player, iPod, computer and so on. I've tried many other headphones and they are not being recognized either. Is there a solution to this or no?


Also, I have restored factory settings and taken out the battery a bunch of times and that did not help either.

have you blown in the headphone socket to blow out any air or dust that may be in the jack? apart from updating to a new firmware if available via Nokia suite, or re-installing the current firmware, and also a three finger hard reset, there won't be much you can do except to take your phone to your local Nokia Care for them to inspect:
