One channel of output jack is not working.
Speakers are working fine. When i plug in a 4 pole mini-jack (like iPhone headphone or similar, the left channel either is completely gone or intermittent. When i plug in a standard stereo mini-jack (regardless wether headphones or jack to RCA cable) left side is missing completely or i get thge same signal as on the right channel aka it's mono). Has anyone experienced similar problems? I guess it's the jack connector but I'd like to be sure before i open or return the iMac as it's just 3 months old. Is it something that can be easily done (maybe loose solder joint etc...) If anyone has pictures of an open iMac same series with detail shot of the outputjack i'd be greatful. Any clues actually are welcome.
You should not be making DIY repairs on a 3mo. old machine of any type or make (unless you knowingly damaged it). Contact Apple. Audio jacks are not easily repaired, computer solder is of a special type and requires special tools and skills so as not to destroy the logic boards.
