What can I say... The port just broke at the same time. If you look at this picture Logic Board you can see the two metal covered ports to the right of the SD card slot are the Aux and Headphone.

There is nothing here that the act of upgrading your HD to a SSD or adding a second HD with the optical drive carrier that would effect the audio outputs.

Did you damage something here?

Thanks for the reply I have not touched that side of the logic board at all I was just wondering if it was the maverick upgrade or a conflict with the hardware


Nope I've got 30+ of this system running Mavericks in the field.
