The problem here is one of repair skill. There's no easy potato based solution but any competent technician with solder skills may solder a wire to what's exposed of the broken tip and pull it out. Or find another dead motherboard and transfer from that to the good board. Or use just the right miniature needle nose pliers to pull it out.
Your plight is not unknown, but just a side effect of repair costs vs. replacement costs.
Hi all, I have a bit of a problem..
My speakers' "headphone jack" recently broke off in the audio out on my computer- which is on-board VIA, so i cannot simply replace the sound card as I have no available PCI slots. I tried to plug the "half-jack" back into place, thinking that the plug making contact with its counter part would suffice, but no sound is emitted when I do this. I thought of some ideas, one of which is resorting to super glue on the tip and yanking it out (what do I have to loose?), but I hope someone else can give me a more rational solution to my problem other than what I have thought up, or buying a new MB.
Thanks for any help you can offer!!
