Hello experts,I am

I've been using Lenovo IdeaPad K1 for quite some time and it was working perfectly. I am not sure why suddenly something went wrong with its headphone jack. It is not working at all. I have tried it when playing games, videos , music and more to no avail. If I attached my headphone to my computer, I can't hear any sounds from it. The IdeaPad is still playing audio from my speakers. So I am sure that there is an issue with my headphone jack. I tried to restart the IdeaPad with the headphone connected, but it still didn't work. Can someone help or do I need to go to its service center to fix this?

Hello Salvador H Jordan,

Here is a quick fix:

Try inserting and taking out the headphone jack rapidly for about 30 seconds. That should move the headphone jack around a bit, hopefully reconnecting the headphone jack to its solder point. If you are a little tech savvy and don't mind voiding your warranty, you can fix it yourself by opening the phone. Find the headphone jack and make it is connected properly. If nothing else works take it to the service center.
