The headphone jack on my Inspiron 6000 recently stopped working. My internal speakers still work fine as do the volume and balance controls. Is it an easy fix to repair/replace or am I stuck replacing motherboard? Thanks

Re: Headphone jack does not work
It could be a broken or cold solder on the motherboard OR the circuit on the motherboard is defective. Either way the motherboard has to be removed from the laptop to fix or replace it.

Pls go to control panel \ sounds & audio devices \ check & configure from audio tab. Also see if there is any switch on the headphones volume line control etc If this don't work then ur headphone is faulty. Well Hphones are quite cheap!
I have a 700m, so I'm real familiar with the system. I see one of 2 possibilities. The headphone jack has a switch that disables the on-board speakers, if that is stuck or broken, then the jack/switch must be replaced. (Big hassle)
The other is easier to troubleshoot, then connection from the speakers to the MB goes through the Right hinge cover. Take the hinge cover off, check for broken wires (I has one, ***** to splice too)
