Thinkpad audio jack problem
Posted on 2008-10-02
My x61t Lenovo Thinkpad is having a stereo problem. Any advice would be great.
When you plug in a set of headphones or Stero y adaptor, the internal speakers stay on. Normally they go off when an external speaker set is plugged in. I can get the internal speaker to turn off IF I put the tiniest amount of pressure on the chord going into the jack.
I called Lenovo and my warranty covers this but the unit has to go to the 'depot' which I have heard mixed reviews about. They say 5 to 7 day turn around.
Is there a cleaner possibly that could be used? I am going to get a vacuum and small straw and try that but is there any other hope?
