Tip of headphone jack stuck inside port

Hello all,

Yesterday, the very tip (just the bulb-like part on the very end) came off a headphone jack while it was inside the port. This means that I don't hear any sound (save the startup chime) because my computer thinks something is plugged in.

I googled the situation and found several solutions:

  1. Stick superglue on the end of a paperclip and touch it to the stuck piece. I tried this a few times, but the glue didn't hold, probably because there's not enough contact area to pull with enough force.
  2. Surround the piece with a straw and fill the straw with superglue. Fortunately, I had the sense to try this with a cable that I didn't need, and it didn't work. The glue seeped into the jack, and would have ruined my computer had I tried it there first.
  3. Drill into the tip and pull it out with a metal screw. I haven't tried this yet, due to the fact that I could mess up and make a hole in my logic board.

Something else that I came up with, that I have yet to attempt, is to remove the logic board (something iFixit doesn't have complete instructions for?) and remove the plastic sheath that covers all but the metal contacts in the jack. However, I have no suction cups and am moving in less than a week, so doing any sort of 'surgery' is out of the question for now.

Any ideas for how to get this pesky problem solved?

EDIT: I would also like to know if anybody's taken out the motherboard and how hard that would be... I'd rather not use the drill, but I might not have an option...

Thanks for the help... do you know if it's possible to remove the logic board on this generation iMac?

完成的

Yes the logic board can be remove from this model of iMac. The gist of your instructions to do so are here: iMac Intel 27" EMC 2309 and 2374 Teardown

Not sure if removing the logic board helps though. The socket has a shield surrounding it.

There is a tool we made that was on Kickstarter called the GripStick. It is made specifically for removing a broken headphone plug from any standard audio jack. It's available now.

I bought one!!

Yep, and the tool is garbage too. Tried it on 3 different iPads with headphones broken off in it and the tool winded up breaking. Followed the exact video on the store page.

完成的

If you twist it you can snap it! We managed to break one the first time we used it. Once we pressed and pulled it worked just fine. Of the three we still have we use them almost every day.

I purchased two back in 2015. I use them frequently but only have success about 25% of the time. Still looking for something better.

The best (an especially glueless) way to do it is actually quite simple and doesn't require any fancy tools. You just get a straw, just a normal plastic drinking straw, and cut in it so it can fit your jack. Then you just push it in the jack so it slides around the broken piece of the plug. Then you turn your device so that the jack is facing the floor, and the plug should slip out. If it doesn't, remove the staw slowly with the jack facing the floor and then take a pair of tweezers and grab the part that has already slipped out and pull it out carefully.It's cheap and fast and worked for me... I unfortunately lost my gold-plating on the jack but I think it's nothing glue can't fix.

My ear bud jack was stuck in the female jack of my iMac. I read all kinds of solutions with glue a straw or drilling. All of which imposed a risk of further damage.

Here is what I did and the tools I used.

RS-232 pin straightener (for us old analog guys)

iFixit Probe and Pick Set

iFixit Flat Needle Nose Pliers

I covered the display and unibody with a heavy towel for protection and Unplugged power

Used pin straightened tool to free the edges of the headphone male jack from the female internal jack

Used the smallest probe to pull the stuck piece forward

Used the needle nose pliers to grab the jack and remove it

Success without any damage to my oh so addicting iMac 27"

As always I used this site to get ideas. Thanks iFixit you are amazing!

Although I couldn't get mine out, i do have a way to get your speakers working. I don't know anything about how to do this technique in windows 7 but here it is for windows 8. And these instruction are if you have dell, but i am sure that you will have other sound options over there.

1. Open up control panel by going to your start screen and searching for 'control panel'

2. Once its open, click hardware and sound.

3. Click Dell audio

4. Once it opens, click advanced and then jack information.

5. Then click on the jacks( there will be an icon)

6. Another window will open.

7. Click on line( it will be the first option).

8. Your speaker should be working again!!

Thanks for the tip. I had the same problem and used the drilling solution with a 1.5mm bit.

I snipped the end of a standard biro plastic sheath (the inner bit) and shaved it down to a snug fit in the headphone socket.

After a fair few attempts finally go the drill far enough into the offending article to bite and out it came.

This does require some precision so take care.

This is a solution that involves glue but it worked perfectly for me. Get some quick dry super glue and apply some to the broken end of the headphone plug. Make sure that there is none on the sides because we sons want it to get stuck in there forever! Insert the pluck into the jack, making sure that it's perfectly connected to the broken end that's lodged. Leave that in for 5-10 mins and after that, grab the plug and tug it out. Don't pull too hard or twist. NOTE:DONT USE GORRILLA GLUE. Hopefully that helped!

If u have the peice that broke of from the stuck peice u can carefully glue on a extention peice wooded\orange stick or toothpick and the other exposed peice that broke off... Put tiny bit of crazy glue on it and try and be patient as u carefully enter it back in the earjack hole. Wait for it to dry. But don't let go of it. Keeping it centered. Than if u gave it at least 3 mins slowly put it straight out. And call yourself a hero. Lol. U need to have a steady hand and patience with plenty of light. It works.

Hey guys, my name is Lalith. A silicon bead got stuck and I didn't see it. I pushed my headphone in too much and it got struck really hard. So, this is what I did. I took a key chain connector which was really thin interms of width and straightened it out. I just pushed it real hard into the audio port and the silicon thing just broke, came out. I used vaccum to remove some pieces. So everything came out but there was this metal thingy inside which I thought it was the silicon ball and I was just pushing on it too hard. I didn't know that this metal thing is actually a part of the port itself. So be careful not to push on that metal thing too hard.

Thanks guys.

Peace out.
