Broken headphone jack

I stepped on my headphone cord and the tip broke off inside the jack. I can't get it out, and my sound won't play through my speakers. I tried changing the settings in my sound card options and switched off the option that mutes speakers while headphones are in, but that didn't work (even after I restarted). The sound was working last night after the headphones broke. Only after I restarted did I encounter this problem. How can I get my speakers to play sound again?

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 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.

When I plug my headphones into my iPod, there is no sound, unless I jiggle the cord around and do not plug them all the way in. They worked fine at the beginning, but do not work now.

I'm not certain it's not the I-Pod socket or the headphone jack that is playing up? If you can get another pair of headphones (a friends etc) and put them in the socket of the I-Pod, to test it that should clear it up. For if they don't work you know it's the I-Pod socket that's faulty.
If it's the Bose jack that's gone, you better see my tip on dodgy cable/plugs on headphones. You should be able to replace it with the 3.5mm type shown, but I think you can get the thinner type jacks.

The tip of the headphone jack broke and got stuck inside our lcd tv's headphone port. Now the tv has no sound unless you put the head phone

You need to lay the TV down on a carpet or bed, take the back off and possibly the board that has the jack to poke the tip out from the other side.

My ipod wont play sound aloud, it only works with the earphones, it used to work??

The speakers may be damaged, if you think water damage is the reason that the speakers are broken then follow these steps,
1. Unplug headphones. 2. Take you iPod to a dark place i.e room with light off. 3. Take a flash light and shine it in the headphone jack 4. Look inside the headphone jack. 5. If you see something red it is likely that your iPod got water in it and the speakers are shot.
Hope this helps, --Kaleb--

Also remove the battery and any other removeable plates below the notebook to check for additional screws. Check if there are any rubberized "feet" or plugs covering access to still more screws. Keep screws and their locations organized in case they are different length.

You should check and see if the headphone jack is broke or not. That sometimes accounts for the reason why sound won't come out.

Broken headphone tip in headphone jack

Only thing I can think of is to use a very small drill bit and drill into the broken tip and then pull it out very carefully.Try this at your own risk.
