Broken heaphone jack inside desktop

I accidentally stepped on my headphone cord and the jack snapped in half. The other half is inside my PC and now my sound won't play at all. Any tips on how to get it out? If not how can I get sound to play through my speakers again with the headphones still in?

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.

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.

Audio jack has headphones pin broken off into it


If you have a pick set you can try prying it out of the hole with one of the picks. If you don't have one then your only option would be to replace the motherboard.

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?

Headphone jack broke off inside


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.

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.
