Removing Broken Pin from an RCA Jack
I recieved a free, working TV the other day. The only problem with it was the pin from an RCA video cable had broken off inside the socket. I didn't want to spend money on an RF modulator for my DVD Player, so I figured out a pretty solid way of getting the pin out.
1.) Find a needle
2.) On a hard surface, bend the very tip of the needle slightly so that it forms a tiny barb.
3.) heat the tip of the needle with a lighter until it glows red hot.
4.) stick the needle into the plastic core of the broken RCA pin
5.) wait a few seconds for it to cool
6.) pull the needle out, and the broken tip should follow!
