Default 2.5mm audio jack Asus N550

Dear reader,

Unfortunately my connector for the SonicMaster subwoofer broke off inside the 2.5mm audio jack of my Asus N550JV laptop. After trying to get it out with multiple tricks I found via Google. But I know think it is beyond all hope and i need to buy and solder a new one on there. Also because the plastic inside ring broke off causing a bad fit and connection. This is where I find my problem. I haven't been able to find one that could fit on the. If somebody knows what jack can fit on it it would really be super helpful. See attachments below, in my opinion I need a Jack with 6? connectors? :

Thanks!!
You'll need to contact asus or an official third party supplier from asus and ask about the part you need.

I suggest you ask them and tell them what you said here.

Here's some things to look at:
http://www.amazon.com/Female-3-5mm-H.../dp/B00FZRMOT8
Pcb Mount 6 Pin Terminals Female 6.35 Audio Phone Jack - Buy Pcb Mount 6 Pin Terminals Female 6.35 Phone Jack,Round Pin Female Socket,Female Industrial Socket Product on Alibaba.com

Can't quite tell if the pins will line up with your existing mounts though...

Thanks. I've contacted them and they replied that the part is not sold separately, only with the mobo. I've asked if they know if another 6pin 2,5mm jack would work but have not had a reply yet.

Thanks but those are both wrong sizes. It should be a smaller connector which is smaller than the common 3,5mm headphone plugs. It's 2,5mm and has a (I think when looking at soldering points on the mobo) 6 pin connector... I've scoured through many sites also chinese and stuff for this part but none seem to match what I need.

You could try finding a junked motherboard from the same model or series of laptop on eBay that somebody is selling for parts - then desolder that one, and solder it onto your board.

He could do better just go ahead and buy a used or newer pulled mobo.
Everything starts out working, fresh and save him the hassle I've trying to fix the jack.

Depends on how much he'd want to spend on the system .
