I'm not saying this is a good idea in any way shape or form.... but, I tried something a little different.  The way I see it, I was without warranty and was going to have to replace the art anyway.  My optical was always stuck on on and that was an issue that couldn't be resolved by any of the above methods, short of replacing the part myself.

The way I see it is, if it's stuck there is a reason, perhaps it's just dirty.  I took a pretty big risk... I think...  First I turned off my laptop.  Then I grabbed a Q-tip removed some of the cotton at the end so that it would fit inside the audio port.  I then put some rubbing alcohol on it.  I then made sure there was only enough on it to do some cleaning.  I didn't want it to be so soaked as to drip alcohol into the computer as that could do some serious damage.  I stuck it in and spun it and made sure to give a small bit of pressure to the insides of the port.  I did that one time and turned the lap top back on.  It was still stuck, so I just did it again, with my mac running, and it worked immediately.  The port now works great.

Even though this method worked for me, I would not suggest using it.

If you decide to use this method, you do so at your own risk.  I am not reliable for anything that happens to your mac and do not suggest using this method.

I only used this method because I was going to have to replace the part anyways and had exhausted all other free options.  It was a last resort to save money that could have cost me a whole mac.
