I accidentally inserted an electric pin instead of the auxiliary jack into the head phone jack assembly. There was a loud screeching sound and ever since then the head phones do not work. However, I can play music through the phone speaker and also with Bluetooth. I cannot listen to music with my ear buds or head phones or with auxiliary speakers. I have replaced the jack assembly with a new one and yet it is the same. What more can I do to rectify this?
