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.

Headphone jack is broken INSIDE the port and is overriding the speakers. Can I override this override?


Or instead of having to open up your computer and messing with the mobo. Just use the control panel in to disable the headphone jack.

The green plug audio jack a piece broke off in it and is stuck inside the green audio jack in the back no sound is coming to computer


You will have to have a electronics tech check that, because the jack has thin metal strips that make contact with the plug you plug into it so the sound is delivered to the speakers or whatever you have plugged in to it, also if you computer has built in speakers that also do not work now, in the same jack the thin strips of metal also serve as a switch that routs the sound to the plug that is plugged into it, or routs the sound to the internal speaker, so if this piece that is stuck inside the jack is preventing the metal strip from making contact either to the plug or the switch to route to internal speakers then you will not get any sound from anything.
If your comfortable with electronics you could open up your computer, locate the jack and see if the back side of the jack is open (has a hole that lines up with the one on the outside), if there is an opening you could try to use a round toothpick and "carefully and very easy" attempt to push the piece out from the back to the outside of the computer, with the toothpick, DO NOT FORCE THIS! If the piece that is stuck, is really stuck you can damage the metal contacts in the jack to a point it would need replacing.
Now the great news is, and only if your good with electronics and de-soldering and soldering, this output jack is most always a common eighth inch stereo headphone jack that you can get at Radio Shack for a couple bucks. However if you do know how to change the jack make sure you follow static protocols when the card is not plugged into your computer, and if the plug is right on the motherboard use caution with too much heat from a soldering iron, most motherboards have several layers and too much heat can damage a layer beneath the jack. (typically a 35 watt soldering iron in good clean condition works best)
I hope this helps!

Remove broken headphone jack on an Optiplex 745


Since the Headphone jack is soldered onto the motherboard in most cases you could remove it by unsodering it from the MB. However, replacing it might cause another issue. You can always install a sound card that would allow you to have additional headphone jacks.

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.

No sound from headphones. Speakers work. Win7


Please clarify, Where is the Headphones connected? Front or back? if you tried it on the Front port without success, Plug in the speaker jack to the port where you did connect the Headphone and verify it's working or not. You can also try the headphone on the port where the speaker is connected.

Awaiting.

I need to dismantle the HP IQ770 to get at the 3.5mm headphone socket on the front - I have opened the casing and can remove power supply, HDD and DVD Drive but no obvious way to get any further without...


I too needed to get to the jack. We broke the tip off inside. I could not get to the jack, but I did find the plug for the front jack on the board. Unplugged it and the speakers worked fine, and the headphone worked off of the rear speaker jack (green).

Broken headphone jack


you should be able to get it out from the inside on the card. Do you have a sound card or is your sound on the motherboard?

Soundcard problem on D530 SFF


Sounds like the audio return wires aren't connected. On the motherboard, there is a sound jack on the back left side of the mobo. The jacks from the front audio panel connects to it. Both the Left and Right channel have an out and an in connector. These send the signal to the headphone jack on the front panel and return the signal to the rear output jack if a headphone is not connected. Look for looe or broken wires. The other spot to check is the front headphone jack. If a headphone plug was pulled out or pulled sideways, it could break the solder joint on the PCB panel or break the shunt feeding the singal to the rear jacks. Hope this helps.

No sound output from rear speaker jack


Plugging headphones into the computer will disable sound output from the sound card by design.
