That headphone jack has a switch in it and appears to have failed.
"A PCB mounting stereo 3 5mm jack socket with two switched contacts which break when the plug is inserted. Socket can also be chassis mounted through 6mm diameter hole."
When those contacts fail...
hi, i have been having this problem for quite a long time, it seems that when i try to play music, or any sound at all, in my headphones the sound hears from both the headphones and the in-built laptop speakers. also, there seems to be a red LED light coming from inside the headphone jack, i think that it might be related to my problem since it started to glow around the time i noticed this problem.
here is my basic system summary:
