Solved! Laptop Headphone Jack broken. Audio only working from left side of headphone.

Jul 9, 2021
My Laptop is a MSI Apache Pro Ge 62. The headphone jack has been broken for awhile now.
I first thought it was the headphone that was broken, but I've tried on other devices and they work perfectly. I'm sure its the jack. This issue started happening after I reapplied thermal paste and I'm guessing I might have been a little bit too harsh opening the case.
Is there any way to fix this?
