Possible problem with my headphone port
About a week or so ago my headphone jack started to act up. I thought it was my headphones that were acting up so I got a new pair (I made the mistake of not checking them on another computer but at least the old and new phones were cheap. ) which also do the same thing. Moving around the headphone's jack causes the computer to start using its speakers again sometimes. When it doesn't do that, sound only comes out of one side of the headphones.
I checked the playback device's properties and both sides are set to the same level. I don't recall updating any drivers recently either. I was hoping to get people's opinion here on whether or not you also think it's an issue with the headphone port (and how I might go about replacing it.)

There are mechanical connections in a headphone jack and some even have an extra contact either for sensing or to route the sound to the headphones only.
Most (all that I've seen) PC circuit boards are multi-layer and require special desoldering/soldering equipment to avoid potential damage to the circuit board. Based on what you have posted it appears to be a problem with the jack. I haven't looked at this PC but many have a small board for the I/O and that is the best option - replace that "daughter" boardl
