Just a thought...

If you don't have an exact replacement part (or assembly) then you are doing it wrong. Many headpone jacks are really intelligent, multifunction jacks the sense what is plugged into them and reconfigures itself to that device. That is, if you plug a mic into it, it becomes a microphone "in" jack. Plug in headphones, it becomes an audio "out" jack. Soldering on a multilayerd motherboard can be pretty tricky and really should be done by a technician who has been properly trained and as the right tools and skillsets, and has probably done it a few dozen times.
I opened it up, and it looks like it is in its own plastic box with 2 USB ports, and 2 other types of audio jacks. The plastic box seems inaccessible, and I want to know if I am either doing this wrong, or if I just have to get it professionally repaired.
Alternatively, you might look into a USB headset and use that instead.
