I have a Hewlett Packard DV5
laptop that has 2 headphone jacks in the front. You can see in this
picture (not exactly the same model but the exterior looks the same.)
I have a SONY SRS-D21
3 piece speaker system that I plug into the headphone jack.
A week or so ago, i unplugged the headphone male end and tried to reach it to my desktop computer below my computer desk and it wouldn't quite
reach, so i tried lifting the desktop up on an angle and it was being held up by the strength of the chord and after only a few minutes of this, it weakend
the headphone male jack end and the tip broke off! I tried gluing it back on and then put it back in my DV5 to see if it would work and it broke off inside
the headphone jack!
I can still listen to music on my DV5, but now only in mono (just the right speaker).
How would i get that little piece of the male headphone end out of the headphone jack hole? (sorry i don't the technical lingo for these things!)
I was thinking some tiny, tiny sturdy tweezers or something. The guy at the local computer place said i was "screwed" and it can't be done. I
can stick a paper clip in there an wiggle that piece around some, but it won't come out and i don't want to damage anything.
Also, does anyone repair or is there a way to fix the male end of my SONY SRS-D21? or is it now fodder for a landfill?
