In/Out Jack Swap

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

I ended up breaking my onboard headphone-out jack  when I fell asleep on my laptop. Woke up to a bent input and the ground spring stuck in the jack.

 

There are also microphone-in and s/pdif-out jacks on the board, would it be possible to just switch them out to replace the broken headphone-in jack? To my understanding, the only difference is the circuitry as to how the operate, but the jacks are identical? Am I correct on this assumption? If swappable, it definitely beats spending $20 on a new daughterboard or trying to locate another identical  jack.

Your laptop's audio drivers may have a program that allows you to re-assign jacks. For example, SigmaTel's Universal Jacks. Have you tried running whatever program came with your laptop's audio drivers and see if something like that is available?
