Headphone jack socket In Sony Vaio laptop has broken

The headphone jack socket (where the headphones plug into the comp) Has been broken, It happened like this: My dog ran across the cord of the speakers while it was plugged into the computer and pulled it out, After that the plastic part (the holder of it im guessing) is broken in half it looks like, and now any kind of headphone plug will not stay in it, and will not transmit the sound through them either... I'd like to know if anyone has any DIY ideas (that acctually works obviously) so I can get back to jammin out to my music... Thanks all

1) The easiest method is to get a USB headphone and it shall solve your problem. You can easily insert the headphones in USB port and can enjoy the music of any sort you like.

Now, obviously as you must already possess a great headphone so my optimum solution to you for time being is to get a USB Stereo Audio Adapter. You shall only have to spend 7$ max and shall be able to get a decent adapter. I am also posting in a link for you if you want to buy it.

Lastly, any sort of repairs can also be done to your laptop. If you can post picture of the damage area and the current status, I would be able to give you a way to mend your laptop as well. But that is for later :-). Enjoy.

SOURCE: Headphone jack seemingly screwed up

What generally happens to connectors, especially exposed to air is they oxydize.

Buy a can of "Contact Cleaner" from a local Radio Shack and spray it (through the thin tube usually provided) into the jack. One quick push, dont flood it. Take the earphone jack and insert and remove it several times, wiping off excess, which sould clear contacts and it should work normally again. If not it would have to be replaced which is no easy matter requiring an experienced Technician or Factory. Sometimes it cannot be replaced without damaging the Mother Board. This however sounds like a common problem the Contact Cleaner will fox

Cheers,

Good Luck :)

SOURCE: I think I have broken my headphone jack on my sony

It might be the plug on the headphone that's bad - try it on another laptop. If it's the jack that's bad, then it will need to be taken apart and that's not easy to fix - recommend having a repair shop fix it.

My headphone jacks doesn't work on my 5517. How can I replace soundcard?


You cannot replace the sound card as it is integral to the mainboard, the only way to resolve the issue is to replace the mainboard, but you could always try taking the laptop to a reputable repair tech who may be able to re-work the headphone socket.

Lean a book on the earphone plug to keep it in the right position. Or, pay a computer repair shop to replace the socket.

Take it to the Service center. need to replace the headphone output connector's. these will happen from Moistor,Dirt block or Dry solder in the Laptop Motherboard. best of luck. ( Try, put headphone jack in and out for 20 to 30 times, or check the sound comes out via headphone, when pressing the connected jack.) best of luck

Hello. My Head phone jack is not working. I have a Sony Vaio Laptop and the speakers on it are working fine. When I put the head phones in it I don't hear a thing. I've up dated the drivers and it seems to...


Sounds like your headphones may need to be replaced. I'm assuming they don't work with anything else.

Try cleaning the plug with a lightly dampened paper towel and use a can of compressed air to clean out the jack on the laptop. If that doesn't work, try another set of headphones.

My headphone plug has broke of in my laptop so i have no sound output what do i do ??


Hmmm..
1. You have to use a small pair of "needle nose" pliers to get that out of the jack.

2. Invest in a set of USB headphones or Bluetooth headphones while you try to get the plug out of the jack.

USB headphones ($20 ~ $50)

Hope this helps...

Sony Vaio VGN 'B series' - broken headphone jack.


Hi there, your question has two way you can fix it:
1) see speaker jack circiut on your motherboard, picture here

a0f7721.jpg
there are 5 pins to the jack socket, you may just find out 2 and 3 pin which is stereo audio output lines, and also need a ground 5 pin. then connect 3 wires go outside speaker. this way quite tough for you.
if you cannt do this way go next
2) find a USB audio card instead of onboard one. this is very easy.
reference here:
