Switching to headphone mode without headphones being attached

I bought this part to fix the problem with the iPhone thinking the headphones are connected when they really are not. I tried the other fixes, rebooting, "erasing and restoring", resetting, the duster, and the q-tip. None of which have fixed the problem. I bought the new headphone jack as a last resort thinking that surley this would fix the problem, but unfortunely it did not either. Although unlikely, unless the new headphone jack is defective I have yet to find a solution. Any suggestions?

there where many postings all over the internet about this problem

some could fix it with air - others changed the headphone jack - but some people mentioned defectife logic boards.

but the point is - why

why does the board fail - in general i would say - moisture (i worked at a nokia shop and repaired phones for years - most of those problems wher fluid damages)

maybe you should look at the components of the logic board and if you see something "different" - like white/green/brown/black stains - looking kinda moldy - then the phone has had a fluid damage.
