    Okay first off I'm sorry if this is a question thread if it is just please move it but I don't think I'll get any advice from fast threads apart from "fuck it n post picks plox"

    So basically, I use my phone as a mp3 player and to do that with normal headphones I have to buy a seperate jack to plug it into the phone so that they will work.

    My fucktard friend decided to spear tackle me for no reason today at lunch and it's broken off inside the actual part the jack plugs into the phone and the needle thing is stuck in that cavity.

    What do you think is the best way to get it out? My phone still works as a phone, and suprisingly to me it still plays out of the speakers for things like ring tones/alarms/ect.

    TL:DR headphone jack is stuck in phone, what is the best method in removing it

    How are me supposed to know better than you? And you are the one that has it in front of you. Try tweezing it, smacking it, and then try taking it apart. As a last resort get a power drill, with a small bit, drill into it, and then without settings it to go reverse, and pressing the button again, just pull out, and it should stay on the end of the bit. It's just a headphone jack, so It's not gonna need a ton of force to get it out, unfortunately it needs a tug, not a push.

    yeah that's the problem

    I figured you guys would be more helpful than fast threads anyway. I'd take photos but that wouldn't work, it's so small and buried in there y'know it wouldn't be cool

    I didn't rate you dumb there either

    Maybe a magnet? How near is it to your HDD? How strongly is it wedged in? Is it gonna take a lot of force to get out?

    Try one of those eyeglass screwdrivers that are about 1mm long and are magnetized on the end.

    I have a memory card but I guess I could remove it

    I'm not really sure how close it is but I don't want to find out

    I just used it to take the back off

    I will have a go

    Try a piece of tape if you can manage to fit one in.

    I would get a tiny drill and attempt to remove it that way.

    Turn off the phone. Put a little bit of lube in there ( butter, oil ) and start turning it and sooner or later it might be able to jank it out.

    Oh I don't recommend turning on the phone while it has oil and butter in it's headphone input :P

    It pressed in very tightly into the jack, there's nothing sticking out.

    I'd say like 2cm into the phone

    The maximum length it has to be in

    get another jack, add super glue to the end of it, press it up against the remaining part of the broken jack, pull the broken piece out.

    Yeah, I think you should get another jack, add super glue to the end of it, maybe press it up against the remaining part of the broken jack, and possibly pull the broken piece out.

    Take a picture of it with your phone.

    Get a toothpick and break of the sharp end.
    get some supeclue on the toothpick and let it dry a little.
    Place the glued side of the pick on the broken Jack.
    Wait for it to dry.
    Pull it out.
    Smack your friend with it.

    This happened when I broke a plug for video in on my brand new LCD tv. First day and I already had broken something :frown: I used the superglue trick and pulled it out. Just make sure not to get any on the sides of the hole. It will permanently be stuck in there.

    If you were me I would just dismantle the phone and use something like a pin to push the broken plug out.

    Hot glue on the end that broke off, hot glue on the other end that broke off, pull. I've done it before.

    If you don't mind voiding your warranty, take your phone apart and find the headphone piece, there should be holes in there where you can just nudge it out.
    Clock me if it was posted before.

    I was going to say that. Works great plus hot glue is pretty easy to clean up as well.

    Take the battery cover off and try and get a good idea where it is, then pinpoint your location, Also what phone do you have?

    If I fuck something up it wouldn't be cool

    I'm going to try the superglue trick now
