Silencing a Phone

As someone who spends more of the work day on the phone than not, I appreciate my headset. So when the jack on my phone started acting up, I was quick to get it working again.

Recently, my phone started emitting a high pitch tone whenever a headset was attached. I tried multiple headsets to make sure the problem was indeed with the handset.

I cracked open the case to find the jack had pulled away from the circuit board and ripped the trace off with it. It didn’t make sense to try to fix the tear in the trace, as there was very little to solder to, but I was able to make a jumper (red) to the nearest component.


It’s not pretty, but it works.

  1. Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I
    was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted
    to get advice from someone with experience. Any
    help would be enormously appreciated!
