Finally, how to fix a mangled headphone socket? To get speaker sound

You need a standard paper clip(one inch long). A pair of pliers to straighten it out. and a wire cutter to make the point chiseled. Bend one end of the paper clip(one inch long) to be used as a lever. Bend the other end 1/16 of an inch to use as a hook with the end cut into a sharp pointed chisel to use as a wedge.

The socket has a switch at the end to change from speakers to headphones. which you need to pull to the front to get contact normally for the speakers to work. When the headphone plugs in, the switch connects to the headphones.

The two sides of the socket must be pull towards the center to get both of the channels to work on the headphone plugs.

Now a few tugs, twists and pulls and your socket is good for a while to work without taking the laptop apart to replace a headphone socket.

Sometimes, your speakers no longer work, but everything else is. You need a powerful LED flash light to see if the headphone socket is mangled by plugs too long or diameter too large.

Once you use a hook to recontact the speakers, the sound will go to the headphones when plugged in. Paper clip can do a good job fixing mangled headphone socket.
