    I have a Sony Xperia z2- and my headphones decided to break and one piece is now stuck inside. Nothing is big enough to put through and take it out. Do you think a phone store would help me?

    This happened to me once. Absolute pain. Definitely worth a try, or a phone repair place

    You could try putting a bit of Blu Tak on the end of a toothpick and pulling it out with that. But if we're honest, you'd probably just wind up with a toothpick, some Blu Tak, and a bit of headphone plug stuck in your jack. I suggest you seek better qualified help.

    Any pics? Can you use pliers or something? Also if you are tech savvy you might be able to open it up and replace the headphone jack or take it out from there. I'd recommend sending it though.

    if there is sufficent of the jack visible / proud to be able to get hold of it of glue/ solder something to then you may be able to remove it , otherwise it;s take it toa repairer and get the socket replaced

    Unfortunately no pictures because it's impossible to get a camera to focus in and I can't even see it with a naked eye either!

    Thank you did you get yours fixed at a phone repair place?

    I doubt you'll get it out of the jack. I've never found a way to do that.

    You're lucky. The headphone port is on a separate loom to the logic board in the phone. You can easily replace that, probably do it yourself if you have a steady hand and it should cost you less than £10, take half an hour to disassemble and reassemble if it's your first time doing a repair like that.

    No, I somehow managed to get mine out My thought was that one of those places though would have loads of tiny tools, and it probably wouldn't be the first time they'd seen it either. Did you get it sorted in the end?
