    In October, my headphone jack died, because the soundboard that we plugged it into literally fried it, with smoke coming out of the speaker grille and a burning smell. I took it to the Apple Store and a genius confirmed it was dead, and I didn't fix it since it was out of warranty. Now, it just started working again. Its pretty sweet but is there any explanation for this?

    It just took a while for the smoke to build back up after you let it all out. :D

    Steve Jobs was right: "These things are screamers!" :D
