    Need a headphone jack to replace mine that broke

    Somehow, I managed to break the headphone jack on my thrive. according to the repair shop, it's an easy fix. He just can't find the part. Can anybody help with this dilemma? Maybe someone has a broken thrive that they would be willing to contribute for a reasonable fee. Please help! I love my thrive. I'm so sorry I broke it. I promise I'll be more careful.

    Re: Need a headphone jack to replace mine that broke

    It appears to be part of the main board.
    Best would be to take a good look at it, get dimensions, check out the mounting and connections and sit down with a copy of the Newark Electronics Catalog.
    If anyone will have the part.....

    I dropped my thrive with headphones plugged in and it shattered my headphone jack. I pulled it all apart and removed the fragments of jack that were left. Now I cannot find a replacement part. I have looked all over mouser.com, digikey.com, and even newark.com but I cannot seem to find a match. It has 4 through hole connections that are on the corners, not down the middle like most. And it has 2 surface mount tabs on the sides that do not seem to be connected to anything, I am guessing that they just help secure it or possibly offer grounding. If anyone is able to find a replacement part, please post it here.

    Thanks

    Related Note:
    When the jack is broken, it will not play sound from the speakers. I guess there is a switch in the headphone jack that, when open, indicates that there is a headset plugged in. I was able to get my speakers to work using the SoundAbout app. I paid for the full version to keep it working and it does the job, but I am still hoping to be able to use a wired headset again someday.

    I tried to superglue the jack back together but failed miserably. Some of the residue is still on the board.

    Did you try DigiKey or Newark Electronics?

    Worst case: bluetooth headset.....
