The headphone connector on my desktop has failed - dismantling the box shows it's a physical problem, probably been clobbered by my knee or chair too many times.
So ... find a replacement pcb mount connector and solder it in. Not a major job.

Except I can't buy just one of the right connector (and there are a load of different types, mine is a low profile r/a PTH 3.5mm green stereo socket with four pins in a line, and one offset). Found it, but I have to buy multiples - and if I want it this side of Christmas I'm not ordering it from China - so ... the smallest multiple I find in the UK is 20 off. Gonna take me decades to use 'em all up!
Still, only £5 including delivery, and they'll be here Monday.

I know why they do it, but it's still a waste of 19 connectors (unless I deliberately muck up the first 19 soldering-in jobs? Laugh | :laugh: )
