    thanks, i have a need for hardening plumbing putty. i didn't know it existed.


    if you want to test to see if it is the jack or the speaker before u cut the wire, a good way to check is by the resistance. If the speaker is bad, it will read very high resistance, if it is the jack that is bad, u won't receive a read what so ever, I have used this trick i discovered on a lot of broken headphones.
