Fix for headphone jack not working

For anyone who has come across an issue where plugging their headphones into their moto x and then the audio either stuttering between the headphones and the phone's speaker, or just not playing through the headphones at all. The issue is a small metal clip at the top of the inside of the jack. It gets worn away and pushed back and stops making contact with the rings on the jack. Here is how to fix that using a small piece of cardboard or other non-conductive material:

Hope this helps for anyone desperately trying to figure out how to save their trusty moto x.

Thanks so much! I'm pretty rough with my phone when I'm out running. I used a small piece of plastic and pushed it behind the contact after pulling it out with a safety pin. Works fine again!

Sometimes there even a simpler solution, My headphone jack was having all sorts of issues. I took a flashlight to look inside and lo and behold pocket lint had built up inside the jack. I used a wooden toothpick to clean it out and had no problems after that.
