Headphone Jack not working, after Screen Replacement?


After replacing a broken LCD screen, my headphone jack has stopped working. Everything else works as before.

Solutions already tried :

1) Cleaning with Q-tip

2) Blowing Compressed Air

Both solutions didn't work.

Also, took apart the phone again & put it back together. That didn't help either!

What might be the issue? Any and all suggestions are welcome.

Hi Mitch,

Thanks a lot for your answer. The ribbon cable was indeed broken, & so close to the jack itself that cursory exam didn't show it.

Had to take it out completely to actually see it.

Ordered a new jack assembly, hopefully fix it over the coming weekend.

Thanks again!
