Headphone jack broke off inside

If I am unsuccessful at removing the broken jack from inside the port.
Can I disable the port and route the sound output on my pc elsewhere?

I have T2892 Emachine. On the back I have pink sound in port and two other green ports next to it which have a different symbol than a headphone symbol I see on the front of the computer.

I use the port to run sound out into my stereo system. 1/8in adapter end (snapped off) connects two stereo speaker jacks at the other end of the adapter.

Any suggestions?

    the pin cannot be removed from the jack. Can I detach the jack from the inside of the PC by pulling it off with pliers, or might that damage the computer?

Yes, you could easily open the computer and physically remove the wires from the mother board for the front audio jack. These are pin headers. Most all the time they are labeled.

The rear audio should already be working from the green jack. If not, then perhaps you have the RealTek Audio chipset and software. The realtek audio software generally has a orange speaker icon in the system tray. You can double click to open it, go to the Audio I/O tab and then click the little wrench icon. It will open the connector setting. On the connector settings screen is a checkbox. Disable front panel jack detection. Uncheck that, also a check box for Mute rear panel output when fron headphone plugged in, UNCHECK this. That should do it.

If you want to try further to remove the broken jack make sure the machine is off, use a very tiny needle nose pliers (electronic type) you should be able to pull it out.

What kind of computer do you have? You could also possibly remove the jack assembly from the inside, so you can get a better view for the extraction of the plug.

Audio input jack for headphone component broke off need to find new input and how to replace

No way to do that unless you can figure out a way to remove the part. The contacts inside that plug determine where the sound goes. No way to turn it off unless you remove the broken part. If you feel confident enough, remove the back of the TV and remove the broken piece from the jack.

Headphone jack has a piece of connector stuck in it and it is making my speakers not work how can i fix this problem?

You will need to remove the broken piece. Power down the computer and unplug it. The only suggestion I would have is see if you get get to the jack from inside the computer and push out the broken piece with a paper clip.

The headphone jack broke off inside my audio port. Is there a way to get it out?

You can use a thin needle type pointer with a bend at the end like a puller to pull out the broken piece inside the jack socket.
Since there is a small hole in the jack this can be made use to hook and pull out and it will engage to come out.
Also you can hold down the PC to tap and assist while you pull out using the tool.

The tip of the headphone jack broke and got stuck inside our lcd tv's headphone port. Now the tv has no sound unless you put the head phone

You need to lay the TV down on a carpet or bed, take the back off and possibly the board that has the jack to poke the tip out from the other side.
