    Take it to apple care and have them replace the logic board, it's only $700.

    Hi mate, im having exactly the same problem, the flimsy optical connector snapped inside my headphone port, now i have no sound at all, have you had any luck yet? how did you get the laptop apart to get to the broken part out?

    I agree with the above posts. My recollection is that the audio jack is part of the logic board of the computer. I don't think that it is a separate, individual repair. I think that the entire logic board will need replacement, which is quite expensive. The quote above of $700 is quite inexpensive- I have seen quotes from the Apple store in excess of 1k.

    BTW, how did your friend break off the headphone jack inside of the laptop?
