Sounds to me like time to whip out your soldering iron and put in another jack. There is a little spring thingie that makes/breaks contact when you insert the jack into the plug. If it ain't making and breaking, then you gotta fix that part first.
Stupid question of the day: are you sure you're not plugging the jack into the mic hole???

The manual says when you stick in the 3.5mm stereo plug, it's supposed to turn
off the speakers and play through the plug. This unit does neither.
It's hard to conceive of a data-centric way to defeat this, so I'm suspecting
Thanks for the helpful suggestion.
