laptop dropped headphone port blocked

hey y’all! i bought this on Ebay recently and while the listing did mention the dent/drop, it also claimed full functionality… as it stands now, the headphone jack is unusable bc headphone cables won’t fit into the port

The seller does offer returns but I’d rather just try and fix it if possible, would it be worth it try and bend the metal back out of the way of the port? maybe some very shallow drilling at the tip of the port?

Is the jack not fitting because of the damage to the case, or does the jack not fit due to something inside the port?


it’s the case, i was able to get a similarly sized allen key down the port leading me to believe there is no blockage. @jmehnert

Soluzione Prescelta

Given what I have been told, your best bet would be to drill with a similarly sized drill bit. Go really slow and only drill enough to get the metal out of the way of the port.

Ouch! The case is quite damaged (bottom cover too) as well as the lid frame as well. If you got the system for real cheap then it might be fixable but not like new nice and pristine!

You may need a new MacBook 12" Retina (Early 2015-2017) Audio Board and before you do any metal work make sure you've disassembled as much as you can and protect the electronics for the metal filings.

that's probably the smarter advice, but I actually just took a drill to it as is, only took a few very slow rotations and boom problem solved!! and i didn't get it for super cheap but im not stressed about it, bought it as an email machine for work ... dont need it to look pretty. :)
