How to remove a stuck headphone jack tip from iPhone (Gadget Mechanix) repair tips video


Hi, my name is Phillip. And today I am going
to bring you another gadget mechanics repair tip of the week. Do you have an iPhone 5, 5C, 5S or 6 that
has a headphone tip stuck inside the jack? Here at gadget mechanics, we experimented
with several things and found a solution. When tweezers and sharp objects can’t get
a broken headphone tip out of the headphone jack, the entire charge port gets replaced. I think we have found a solution that doesn’t
require any parts, a heat gun and long sharp metal object. First, remove the iPhone screen and battery. Next, make sure you are not near any flammable
objects. Plug in your heat gun, turn it on, and make it stand facing up. Wait for about a minute for the heat gun to
get hot. Do not touch the top of the gun. Next, stick the sharp metal tool like a metal
pick at the edge of the heat gun. Wear protective heat gloves. Wait for about a minute for the tip of the
metal tool to get hot. Don’t go over 1 minute. Finally, turn off your heat gun. Use your
metal tool and quickly press against the back of the headphone jack to push out the stuck
headphone tip. There are no wires or sensitive parts in the
back of the headphone jack so this will not damage the charge port. This technique only
works with the iPhone 5 through iPhone 6. You can also use a soldiering iron tip to
do the same thing. We would like you to comment below with your
attempts using our technique. Also, make sure to like this video and subscribe. For parts,

thats all we have, please tune in next week for the next gadget mechnics repair tip of
the week.
