Answers :

Hi. There's no problem with your laptop. It is you jack that faulted. Try another new jack or have a new one. maybe your cable has some cuts that are unnoticed since it is inside the rubber coated wire. It may be caused by constantly fondling the cable while at work or operation.
To check the cable functionality use multi tester to check its functionality. If you want to have easy trouble shooting replace the jack cable.

Please reply for any feed back so that I can suggest more option to your problem.
