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?

Marantz sr3053 stuck in headphone mode


Usually the headphone jack is like a mechanical switch and it's probably just not making a good connection inside. Use the correct size headphone jack and insert it then remove it maybe a couple of times and see if that fixes it.

Ok it's not something we can help with, generally speaking..I mean we can't fix but I can suggest a workaround - A cheap alternative is to buy a USB sound card, you can also buy a USB card reader

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.

Htc only plays music to one ear


Check that you don't have pocket lint etc stuck inside the audio socket. Turn off the phone and use a paper clip to see if you can hook anything out. If you can't push the plug all the way in, it can cause the problem you describe. Otherwise take a look at http://www.urheadphones.net/ReplaceEarBuds

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.
