    I really need help. My headphone jack has broken off in my beloved iPad. The tip is stuck down in the hole and of course, I can't hear my music, my podcasts, etc. I can't figure out how to get it out. Can someone help:(

    I think your only safe option, rather than any attempts to try to free the broken piece yourself, is to take it to an expert electronics repairer. Should not be too expensive as I doubt the iPad will need to be dismantled. Hope you get on OK. let us know how you fare with this upsetting problem.
    Regards, Andrew

    I just deleted your other post as it was a duplicate of this one. Please do not do this since it makes it hard for other members to read and help you of there are multiple threads of the same topic present. It is also against forum rules.

    Thank you for doing that. I realized that I posted on the wrong forum. (iBooks instead of iPad) I didn't know how to delete it. -__-
