RCA plug stuck in amplifier !!

I have an amp here I want to use to run my highs, and when I got it I found that it was half of a rca plug still stuck in one of the outputs. My question is, is there anything I can use to get it out? Is there anything that I can stick in there that will adhere to the rca strong enough that I can just yank it out?

I tried to open the amp and push it out from the back side but I couldnt get that to work, because the space was so small.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

alaska is infamous around these parts



what do you mean half? what half is stuck? the "pin" part that actually goes inside the jack?

if so...prob SOL, have to have someone change out the entire jack

maybe try a paper clip with some super glue on the tip...if that doesnt work then you will probly have to replace the plus...i dont imagine it would be that hard to do ... probly just involve a little sauder.

Thanx for the help, I dont have access to a soldering iron or someone who has one, and I would hate to pay someone for the thing, but if I guess there is no way out of it, i'll have to come up with something.

Just the tip stuck in? If im not mistaken, that thing is hollow. Go in (carfully) with and exacto knife tip, and see if you can git it to slide out just a lil by kinda scraping the inside of the tip cylinder. If you can get it out just a touch, you should be able to get at it with needle nose pliers.

If all else falls, take it to an istall shop, and ask em if they ever had that problem. Their idiocy my serve you well.

if that tip is hollow try using a small screw to reach in and grab it, and pull it out. If you booger up the jack you won't be any worse off than you are already....

exactly how much room is on the back side of the jack, if there is enough, just push the damn thing straight through with a new set of rca's.

Take you amp apart and take a look at the rca jacks.
You will find that most of them only have a small metal plate that stops the pin part of the rca. The is also normally some room on either side of this plate. You may be able to push the pin part back out by putting something in the small gap and pushing from the circiut board out. I hope that makes sense.

Get yourself a small Tap (broken screw remover) that will just fit the inner hole of the RCA jack and use a screw driver to turn it hopefully it will be able to screw itself into it and then pull it out.
