Hi everyone! I'm looking to buy spoilt/broken iPods, most preferably the iPod photo or anything that's around that size/weight for an art project that I am undertaking.

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!

Broken Lappy. What should I do?

Hey everyone, Im new to this forum, but I visit the site a lot. I just got a Toshiba laptop for free, Not sure what model but it has a huge screen. From what I've been told, the motherboard is broken, but the screen works. Ive tried pressing the power button and nothing happens, but there are those little.. shortcut keys to start internet etc. When I press one, it starts up, but the screen doesnt show anything. Im pretty sure something is just wrong with the wiring, but I have no clue how to fix this. Is there any way to fix it from what you would know? Or is there anything fun I can do to it with the screen or something? I have not touched it in a year now and its collecting dust, so right now, im open to any ideas =]

Help - broken parts

I have a unibody macbook which I have recently broken and would be grateful for your help/advice. I dropped my macbook on the floor. As a result a piece of metal (I think it is aluminium but this is a guess) snapped off the screen (internally). This piece of metal was the piece that the hinge screwed into, connecting the screen and the keyboard and allowed the laptop to close. I have attempted to glue this piece back on with various strong adhesives but these have not been strong enough due to it being hinge. I am writing to ask if you think that a form of welding may be a possible solution. The piece is 1.75cm in length and about 3mm across. As you can see from the photos there are three holes which will hold the screws securing the hinge to the computer's base. The piece is attached to the laptop's screen. I have attached two professional photos which I hope show how the piece fits into the overall mechanism. Your input would be most appreciated.

What was the last electronic device you broke?

In writing 62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer I collected a lot of broken electronics to make projects with. However, the ones I had the most fun re-purposing were the ones I had broken myself. This is not say I enjoy breaking my electronics, but rather, I enjoyed finding new uses for the devices that I had grown rather fond of using. The last such thing I have that died on me was the digital camera I used to document all of the projects I made in the book (it survived over 20,000 photos before I dropped it for the last time). It's currently in pieces on my work bench while I try to figure out what to do with it. I'm wondering, what is the last thing you have that died? What do you plan on doing with it?

Getting a broken screw out of mdf?

Okay I have this problem with a screw being stuck.  It's a small screw size, like maybe #10, but can't tell. It's stuck in 3/4 inch mdf, and it goes through the mdf. I've tried everything to get it out. Pliers don't work, and I absolutely CAN NOT drill out a larger hole.  I tried super gluing a nut to it (yes, I know, stupid idea) didn't work. Only other idea I have is possibly welding a nut onto it, but I have no access to any kind of welder. I can get a butane torch with interchangeable 'soldering' tips, but I think I could possibly do a cheap tack weld that way if it gets hot enough. Other than that, does anyone have any ideas on what I can do? I'd like to preserve the threads as I will be using the same hole.

My guitar hero drum kick pad broke, the pin on the jack snapped off. Need help in rewiring a new jack.

The connector plug sheared off where it plugs into the drum set. I cut the cable to replace the jack but can't figure out how the wires inside can be reconnected to the new jack. It looks like there is only one wire inside the insulation but part is red and part is gold. But they seem to run together. Any advice or help appreciated!?
