Check that the headphone cable is fully inserted, clean the inside of the headphone jack of dust / debris with a cotton bud / stick trimmed down in size and a drop of isopropyl alcohol (or white spirits)
And / or try another headphone.

Cotton buds are labeled differently in some places:

I tried Michael's suggestion and it still turns off when the screen goes off

Any other suggestions?

Have you tried changing the setting for auto lock to "never"?

Michael was correct,

I took it to Apple Store and they sold me a "NEW" set of earphones that worked.

Thanks Michael
