So I'm pretty sure my daughter broke the jack today when she dropped the touchpad with headphones attached. It still cuts out the internal sound when they are plugged in but I can't get any sound from whatever I try. I've tried rebooting with no luck.

I found this article on replacement but can't seem to find the actual part, anyone know where to find one?

maybe in a broken touchpad?
or maybe something with a similar shape? there's only so many ways you can make a headphone jack

edit: i saw the ifixit
ehh, there doesnt seem to be a huge market for parts
i think another tp is the best bet
idk

I do have a stereo BT headset but I like plugging the TP in to my A/V receiver so I can stream Pandora on the whole house speakers.

Shave the tip of a pencil until you have a powder. Pour it into the headphone jack. Slide your headphones in and out a couple of times. The graphite shavings act as a lubricant. It fixed my Palm Pre phone when it got stuck in headset mode. I had read it somewhere on one of the forums. It worked for many people. Might work for TouchPad as well.

You can always set up a Bluetooth Receiver connected to your A/V Receiver. I have a Motorola DC800 (Amazon.com: Motorola 89015J Dc800 Bluetooth Stereo Gateway: Cell Phones & Accessories) connected to my system. I have heard good things about the Miccus BluBridge (Amazon.com: Miccus BluBridge Mini-Jack RX: Bluetooth Music Receiver use with Bluetooth-Enabled Mobile Phones, Tablets, PCs and Apple (BBMR-02): MP3 Players & Accessories).
