Headphone Jack Weird After Physical Damage
I recently tripped over my earbuds when walking away from my computer and ripped them out of the headphone jack. This caused the metal piece at the front to break off and fly across the room. I found it and it seems like it wasn't attached to any wires or connections. Now when I plug in my earbuds it doesn't detect them normally. It plays audio through both my earbuds and my computer unless I mute my audio. When I mute my audio it plays only through my earbuds. I guess I can deal with this, but I'm wondering if there's a quick fix, and if not if there is a way I can make sure it doesn't get damaged further.
