Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5315 15.4-inch Notebook PC ?

My 2 year old tripped over my headphone cable which was plugged into my Acer aspire 5315 and rather than just pull the cable out its pulled the inside of the onboard sound card. it still works but now if i plug my headphones/speakers in it still plays through the lappys speakers aswell which does not help when im producing music late at night.i do have a USB sound card but it is really impractical. i am not bad with a soldering iron and am happy to do any repairs by myself but just need to know


Answers :

I only have part of the solution...Once you do get it open safe and sound, de-solder the headphone jack. Most likely you can use it again but you will have to disassemble the little thing that includes gentle hands and normally a really small screwdriver...
What happened is that the headphone jack bent one of the contacts so that it ALWAYS makes contact. at the bottom of this page you can kinda see an example of how it is suppose to work
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRS_connector
But I would bend the contacts so they work properly and that the path to your speakers is broken when plugged in, and closed when unplugged.
Let me know if i can help anymore.
