There is a Greenish-blue fluid coming from the audio-out/headphone jack on my laptop.
I have just begun to notice this in the last few days. However it may have been happening for some time now without my noticing it.
At first I thought it might be coming from the male connector on the headphones, but I wiped the connector clean with a napkin and placed it in the jack again to see that there is more residue or fluid still adhering to the headhones male connector after removing from it from the computer's female connector.
It is not "leaking out" perse, but it is adhering to the connector when I reconnect the two.
See the photo of what the fluid looks like.
It is wet, not necessarily thick and it is more viscous than pen ink but less than water....if that helps.
What Is this fluid, where is it coming from (beyond the jack internally) and how do I fix the problem?
My system info:
- HP Pavilion dv7t-4100 CTO laptop
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SrvPk-1
- I am assuming browser version, plugins/toolbars and such are irrelevant
I will attempt to determine any internal board components or additonal info if needed.
