Solutions to the p2's poorly made headphone jack
I started out with my p2 about a year ago and everything went dandy. I also found out that I had friends with p2's which made it even better. Well i'm sitting at my desk now looking at parts from 3 dead mp3 players and Iím pretty sure theyíre mocking me. I managed to get a better jack that was more secure than the Samsung one but due to the fact I had to solder a tiny stand of steel wool onto an even tinier capacitor it was ultimately unsuccessful.
Ruling out Bluetooth headphones and soldering onto the area the jack was, is there any other leads I can use? I was thinking of using the headphone out leads on the connector but it would help if there was anywhere else more accessible (yes I know about the supposed line out leads and ill test them with headphones tomorrow but I really doubt it will work as I donít have a tiny amplifier).
If you need any more information or pictures just ask as iím writing this at 12:30 pm and details arenít the most prominent thing on my mind.
p.s if I canít get the jack sorted out does anyone have any cool ideas for a bricked p2? Photo frame maybe?
