Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The smart thing is to send it back and have them do it.  One of my fellow techs took his apart and since some of the connections are so short, once he took it apart, he was unable to put it back correctly.  So be wise and send it back to the factory and have them remove it.  It should still be under warranty.

    You possibly don't.   Your best chance is to take it to a small appliance repair shop and have them do it.   If you're determined to do it yourself, and you aren't comfortably familiar with opening devices like it and successfully closing them again, then be prepared to have a broken case or other part when you're finished.   There are internet sites that discuss Kindle repairs. Google searches bring them up for you. And at least one YouTube video can be found that shows a repair sequence. You should definitely watch any videos a couple times before doing anything.   Once the case is successfully opened and the socket is clearly visible, you should be able to maneuver the plug out.   Tom

    It's not difficult at all, I just had the same issue with my kindle. The back of the kindle is more similar to a cell phone, I used my pocket knife to insert into the little indent that goes around it and pop it off. From there I was able to use my finger to slide out the part of my headphone that was broken in my kindle, then clicked the back onto the kindle and it works fine. I would try this before taking it to a shop and wasting money, it's pretty manageable for anyone.

    Use a 3.5 tech pin with magnetized head.

    I think you are better off taking it to a specialist who repairs mobile devices. If it's still under warranty, sending it out is the best solution.
