If you know your way around electronics you take it apart and try to fix it.  Otherwise, get a new remote.  If it's still under warranty...

Re: How to fix broken headphone jack that is stuck

saw a youtube video the guy basically shorted the audio jack pins.(i have the same problem except if i dared to shake tv again  can hear the audio jack rattle around lol). if at the point of having to sodder_short pins may as well get a new audio jack and solder 3 more and have a functional jack. itll only take a coupkle minutes....when i can rememevber lol
