Its being 1 month My HTC Droid Dna's Audio jack not working.

Around a month ago I feel that my audio jack flickering on and off.
After that stops working for a while and again starts working properly.
Now its completely dead I think.
Tried removing lint from it but there is nothing.

Googled it and found this link

Just want some help here.
Is it the only solution(replacing above unit with sim tray,audio jack, power flex ) for this?
Or there is another way to handle this (replacing only audio jack if possible).

since it will cost me a lot replacing the whole assembly.

Thanks

Have you tried different headphones. I would say if there isn't anything in it then it probably went dead. Did you make sure the pins inside were making contact?

I read on the forum that someone else that was having problems with their headphone jack pulled the pins out a little bit. They stuck an object in and gently bent them out more and they had success. It's worth a try. Don't bend them too far though.

Let me know how it works out. Worse come to worse you replace the part. Hopefully it doesn't come down to that. 😃

I have this problem from time to time. I bought some canned air and spay first to rid moisture and then blow it in the jack and use a wood round toothpick and clean it out. Should work fine.
