You may be able to reconfigure things using the HDA Analyzer : ; the interface is a bit raw, but I was able to use this tool to successfully diagnose a fault in the HDA codec drivers.

sudo alsamixer

I think M=mute/unmute
< > keys = mute/unmute right left.
You wanna unmute the jack in question.

there also may be a "Headphone" button* you select.

Best to just mess around in the alsamixer
