Default Earphone Jack Plug Stuck inside

Can anyone tell me if there's any way to turn off the service for headphone mode? because i have a earphone jack, (the Tip of it) lodged in there and my moronic friend told me he has a tool to take it out (small pinchers) but then decided to drill it....which i think made it worst and its stuck up there....what can i do?

Update: Tried the glue method did not work

should i just drill it out lol..i just want my speakers to work don't care for headphones

I would have tried the glue method before drilling. Did he use a screw extractor or similar, or just tried to drill with a normal bit?

There are apps to turn off headphone mode. 'HF Button Widget' is one. Can't personally vouch for it, just found it by searching. Looks like it will do what you want.
