Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
I recently tripped over a cord plugged into one of the headphone jacks on the front of my computer. The plastic kinda bent up a little and the actual jack now seems to be jammed inside. This itself isnt a huge problem, as there is a second headphone jack that still works just fine. Only problem is the laptop speakers don't work now. I think the computer thinks there is still something in that jack, so it won't play through the speakers. Is there any way to tell it to ignore that jack, which I think would fix the problem, or do I need to get this repaired physically?
I had the same problem and resolved this by putting a tiny amount of "super glue" on the end of the headphone cable/pin that came away from the broken part and putting it back into the socket/jack and firmly holding it for one minute. I then left it over night to dry.
The next day I firmly grasped the headphone pin and steadily pulled it from the computer making sure it came out straight.
The glue had dried enough to allow the broken part to remain connected for the removal. I then threw out the headphones.

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.
