    You can usually push the pin back through from the inside of the phono socket, whip the cover off the amp and have a look. Failing that, if the pin is snapped and hollow, try self tapping screw to grip in the tube and draw it out?

    if its still under warrenty, let the shop take the cover off, if not theres normally 4 screws to release the cover then it should slide off slightley, best left to the pros though!

    What about a very strong magnet? or, get a jewlary screwdriver or needle, put a Very Very small blob of superglue on the end and stick it to the broken pin. Let it go hard and pull it out! carefull you dont stick the needle in the hole though :?
