    any ideas? broken phono plugs in amp....

    no idead how it happened but basically the phono plugs have snapped off, leaving the centre piece in the amplifier sockets....

    they are solid pins, so can't jam anythign in them, and have already tried supergluing a matchstick to the back of them to pull them out to no avail...


    so any bright ideas?

    (oh, and the sockets appear to be blocked off from the back)

    I've had this before, and we managed to drill a tiny VERY TINY hole in the end and get a screw to bite in the hole and managed to pull it out. It was a vewry delicate job, but worth a try. I twas a very slow drill, with no clutch.

    but didn't they just spin round when you tried to drill?

    no, I thought they would, it was a pretty sharp bit, and just made 2 lovely little twists of metal on either side of the bit. It's gotta be worth a try mate, failing that, what about soldering something to it?

    i opened my amp up and pushed it out from the inside, did you open it to see that they looked blocked off? If not worth a try before you drill it.
