headphone jack sputtering
My serval's a couple years old now. I noticed that my left external speaker (connected via the headphone jack) was going in and out months ago but put up with it, and it's slowly gotten worse. At this point the left speaker/headphone is completely dead unless I squeeze the laptop the right way around the headphone jack. Thus, I'm fairly certain the jack itself is physically kaput. What options do I have and what advice can you give me? Is it possible to replace just the jack or would I have to replace a whole card or board?
Thanks in advance
