I have a small form factor altec Case and I am having an issue with the audio port. When I plug in headphones, I have to wiggle the headphones jack around and get it "just so" for the sund to come through. I have tried other headphones so I know it is the jack.

 

what I think is the problme is the metal piece inside the port has become loose and so it doesn;t make proper contact with the headphone jack. Anyone know of a way to fix this? All I can think is to stick a paper clip or something in there and try to bend it back into position.

Might be dirty, try spinning it the port some times that will do it.

yeah if you spin it then kind of bend it up it will work. That's why I think the contacts inside are bent or something.

Not sure how easy it would be but can you get the case open, if you can get at the plug it should be fairly easy to bend a little more tension onto that tang.
