I got a strange dilemma here, the tip of my phono jack on my headphones broke off inside this laptop i got here, its pretty far in there, its not sticking out at all it was just the very tip of the plug before the first ring, and its stuck pretty far down inside the female plug inside the laptop haha..

Anyone got any ideas on how someone might get it out? Would I have to disassemble the laptop and do surgery on it?

the laptop in question is a HP Pavilion G6

any suggestions are appreciated

Usually, it's pretty easy to poke the plug back out of the jack from the inside. Unfortuantely, this will require at least partial dis-assembly of the laptop.
