Y530 Headphone port plugged

2019-07-06, 7:52 AM

So the tip of my headphones broke off and plugged the audio jack in my y530 latop. I can't get it out and so now I have no audio. 

 

The laptop's less than a year old and it's still under warranty but I was wondering whether something like this was even covered and if so, would they have to replace the whole motherboard or just the headphone port? Or I could I just get some bluetooth headphones and ignore the problem for a while? 

 

Thanks

Unfortunately it is soldered to the motherboard, and would probably not be covered under warranty unless you had accidental damage coverage.   

 

Blue tooth or USB headphones shoud work though

First you should buy something like the Grip Stick from iFixit: https://www.ifixit.com/Store/Tools/GripStick-Headphone-Plug-Extraction-Tool/IF145-333

 

Otherwise, if your willing to break your port potentially permanently:

 

Get a very small stick, put a very little bit of super glue on the end of it, and very carefully slide it in. Let the glue set up on the metal piece. Once it does, carefully pull it out. If that doesn't work, you could try super glue with the broken headphones, but be VERY careful not to get it on the connector.
