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.

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

Your headphone jack connections have broken inside, cutting off the speaker and one side od the audio, left or right. The jack needs to be replaced or resoldered.

Marantz SR7500 headphone jack stopped working


There is a contact inside the jack that is closed when the plug is inserted. Apparently this is no longer happening. This should be an easy repair for a qualified technician.

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.

Headphone jack broken speakers wont work


Yes, since the Headphone pin is stuck in the Jack, you are not getting audio from Speakers.

You should have noticed that connecting the headphones to the Jack will block the audio coming from the Speakers and the same is the current situation.

You can either try removing the blocked part using a Tweaser or get it repaired.

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.

Stylus tip stuck in headphone jack(no sound!)


Yes, here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo DS:

How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube:

"Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

And after opening it you may need to replace or try to repair the audio plug. In case you cant, then you must take it out (desoldering it with the stuck stylus tip and the mute switch, which is embeded in the headphone jack) and you can have your audio back.
As the audio switch and the jack only work to mute the speakers audio usually when you plug a headphone then you can lack of it almost all times.
