    Hey Guys,

    I'm having some problems fixing the "red light" issue because I am getting no audio on my internal speakers. I used a plastic pic and pushed some stuff around in the jack but nothing is happening?

    What exactly do I have to push? Is it that small metal plate inside the bottom of the jack? Do I have to lift it or push it?

    Sorry forgot to indicate that I DID SEARCH the forums and read the 200 threads on this subject. I resolve the problem with what I found...

    What I'm asking is where this "switch/sensor" is located in the jack... So I don't have to go around jamming everthing with a toothpic.


    EDIT: Solved problem... took out the sound card and cleaned it out.
