    Hi My headphone jack worked for a long time but all of a sudden it just stopped. Whenever I plug in headphones or anything into the jack a high pitched squealing sound plays. Any suggestions?

    There's a bunch of threads on this very problem. For many people, there is lint stuck in the jack. You can try to shine a light down there and see. Then either blow it out with compressed air or take a small paperclip and GENTLY dig it out. I've had my headphone jack stop working twice, and each time a simple shot or two of compressed air solved the problem. Now I just need a small cheap plug/cover for it to prevent this... Good luck.

    Are you sure you don't have any Justin Bieber MP3s playing?

    A suggestion above recommends using compressed air to flush any dirt/fluff from the 3.5mm socket. DO NOT DO THIS. Not only could you push dirt further into your device but it could create a static discharge, potentially frying your device's electronics.

    Dustoff worked for me. Just sayin'. And airborne static transmission doesn't occur in high humidity areas.
