Loren Watts yes, that is what needs to be done. Not as bad as is may sound, for as long as either you know how to solder, or you know somebody that does. Disassemble the laptop using your service manual or videos like this After that desolder the old connector. Clean the solder pads and replace the connector with some like this This one is costly and you may find a less expensive jack.

Thank you @oldturkey03 for the research and confirmation. I'm okay with the teardown, but I'd probably get help for the soldering part of the task. Thank you for helping me.
