Headphone jack broken in port

[ Edited ]
Product Name: HP Pavilion Desktop - 550-152n
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi. After some advice please. I have a broken headphone jack stuck in the desktop port. I need some advice on how to remove the broken jack or replace the port. If this is not possible how I can disable the headphone jack to restore external sound to the PC? Had a local chap look at it and said that the jack cannot be removed and to fix it would require a part that he cannot source as part of the motherboard?

Thanks old_geekster I may have to go for that as guessing there is no easy or less riskier way of removing it! Will give it a go tomorrow and let you know how I get on. Cheers.

Re: Headphone jack broken in port

There is a tool, the GripStick, specifically designed to easily solve this problem without having to disassemble the device, use glue, drilling, or any other unsafe method. It also works for any mobile device, tablet, computer, or any other electronic equipment that has a 3.5mm headphone jack. The name of the tool is GripStick, and it was successfully funded via a Kickstarter campaign. Watch it in action here:
