    I've had my 12" powerbook for about a month now, and today, my headphone jack basically stopped working. I noticed that it was getting loose a week or two ago when i had to spin the headphone connector a bit to get a good connection. Now, I have to hold it in one place for it to work at all. I noticed a few posts on this, but they typically involved older PB's.

    Has anyone else experienced/heard of this happening?

    I guess I'll be calling Apple in the morning to see if they will fix this. I expected more out of a $1500 machine...

    Not everything's perfect, ya know. That's why you get free warranty even without AppleCare. Talk to Apple ASAP about it.

    Yeah...I'm just mad because I just got the Guitar Rig 2 demo and I can't hook my PB up to my guitar amp now...I half expected something to go wrong eventually, which is why I did buy the apple care.

    That sucks, but I'm sure it's not a common problem for PowerBooks. Mine is much older than yours, and the headphone jack still works great. Aren't you glad you have Applecare.

    Wait, maybe I don't understand. Why do you want to plug your guitar amp into your headphone jack?

    yes...its an audio out. Plug my guitar into the audio input 1/8" to 1/4 inch adapter...plug it into my headphone out to my amp using another adapter.

    But the problem is that I can't do that when i have a messed up headphone jack.
