Microphone jack - tip of headphone broke off in jack?
I have a 15" mid-2009 Macbook Pro. The tip of a pair of headphones broke off in the microphone jack and now I have no audio. With the MB Pro turned on, a small red light comes from the jack, but I assume this is the jack trying to "connect" to an external device.
I assume I'd have to open up the MB Pro as per instructions here and remove the microphone, then either try to dislodge the tip or else replace the part itself.
Any other ideas? Would it be too risky to try to dislodge the tip from the mike jack from the outside, without opening the computer?
Is this a good question?
