    Plug stuck on audio jack, thus, no sound

    I have a plug stuck in my audio jack. Some wise guy thought it would be funny to put superglue on a speaker plug, and now it's broken off stuck in my audio jack. Can I replace just the jack without a lot of soldering, or am I hosed? I'd really settle for bypassing it so I can at least have sound out of the speakers. It's really frustrating. My only options right now are bluetooth or USB headphones. Just getting my speakers going would mean everything to me. Thanks for any help or advice.

    WOW... seriously that's what happened?

    Since the earplug jacket is not only contacts for the earphone plug it's also a physical switch that routes audio signal to the internal speakers or the earphones when plugged in. Since your "switch contacts" are permanently held open, you'll need to replace the jack. I'm not even sure Bluetooth or USB is an option.

    Did you kick his a$$?

    I have used USB successfully. I opened it up and looks like I'll need to go through a soldering replacement. I can't believe that it's a hard disconnect on the speakers with a plug in. You would think they would just make it to where you could choose output. Sigh.

    If you do not want to go through the hassle of replacing the jack you could simply solder one wire to the switching part, this would act like nothing was plugged.

    I would try to fix it correctly. You may want to sell it someday. Order or find a new jack (Radio Shack) and solder it in correctly.

    Good point. Are there circuit diagrams out there I can get to know what connection point I need to hit?

    The same one you disconnect the old jack from.
