    Male Rca stuck in female plug, but...

    So my RCA male broke off into my female plug on my amp, and I was doing reading on how do I get this out. and the easiest one seemed to be where u use a needle and make it red hot then stick it and the plastic and PRESTO! Here is where the BUT comes into play i fallowed these steps and started wiggling and pulling and the little plastic piece came out, but the out metal shell did not come with it how can i get this medal shell out of my female plug?!?!?!

    What a sec....you said "metal shell out" of your female plug.....are you meaning the metal that *surrounds* the female plug or the metal rod that goes *into* the female connector?

    I think he means the metal shell on the male connector is stuck inside of the female connector, the only thing i can think of is to get some needle nose pliers and stick them in there, open the pliers so that they press against the shell and pull outward.
    Never accept STOCK equipment.

    Yes this is what I mean sorry for the confussion. But i actually got it out I just ended up putting super glue on the plastic piece that came out from the male side and let it dry then just pulled it out and came out nice and smooth thanks for that help guys

    Good old superglue.

    Before that we used to use self-tapper screws....
