Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FS980 that has an headphone jack that has stopped working. I believe it is due to use and is isolated to the jack itself. I have look inside the jack and there is no specific visible damage or particles in the jack. I can not find the jack anywhere online. Is there a supplier of the part so I can swap it out with a new OEM replacement? Thank you for your time and response!

Not really. you can get a new port, but it would cost alot to get it replaced, you can buy usb adapters to get audio out.
Have you checked the playback devices in sound properties to see if your default playback device has been changed, maybe to HDMI or usb device

I think I have broken my headphone jack on my sony vaio VGN-CS320J because headphones plugged into this jack do not work, unless held at a certain angle, otherwise sound continues to come from the laptop...


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.

Sony Vaio VGN-FS980 laptop recovery disks


Check your user manuals and see if there is a recovery partition mentioned in there. If there isn't then you will need to buy an operating system cd and reinstall from fresh.
