    RCA's broke in my amp

    The RCA's broke and there are two pieces stuck inside now, any ideas on how to get them out?

    You can open up the amp and push it out from the inside. Depends on the amp though.

    Bend over a small portion from the top of your pin, so it's kind of shaped like a small hook. Then heat it up and let it cool completely before pulling it back out. If you try to just stick a straight pin in, it won't work. I've had to do this before, and it wouldn't work until I bent the tip over. It doesn't have to be curled over much, like 1/16" is enough to get the job done.
