Question about E-Machines T2898 (764296109563) PC Desktop
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.
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.

I was lucky enough to get mine out easily but have not been able to figure out how to replace.Ii took another off another cord I had but now the sound is just faint. I just twisted the 3 wires together for temp fix.Any suggestions.
