    3.) heat the tip of the needle with a lighter until it glows red hot.

    4.) stick the needle into the plastic core of the broken RCA pin

    5.) wait a few seconds for it to cool

    6.) pull the needle out, and the broken tip should follow!

    Steps 3 & 4 you have to do really quick or the needle will cool down to early...make sure you got a steady hand or you will have to repeat until you get it in.

    You will see that this method works like a charm!!! All the rest is a bunch of nonsense. Why do you need a soldeirng gun or a matchstick and puddy??? You monkeys would fail at the MacGyver School of Survival...
    Thank you so much life saver hahahaha really appreciated it

    Lexdiggy - YOU SIR ARE AN ABSOLUTE LEGEND!!!!!

    I'm a DJ and I use turntables combined with vinyl emulation software through an external sound card, it's called Serato: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dL1L...9221&kw=serato

    On Saturday night I dropped the 500 soundcard off a table, I've had it since 2007 with no problems, but the phono plugs snapped off in the Line output when it fell... I took the box apart, the sockets were sealed at the back. I got quoted a couple of hundred quid for repairs, they were gonna replace the whole board.

    YOUR SOLUTION TOOK 2 MINUTES AND WORKED AN ABSOLUTE TREAT!!!

    I can't thank you enough man, next gig is tomorrow night and I'll be back on my Serato box as it should be... since I can't buy you a pint unless you happen to be in Edinburgh, I'm gonna get drunk myself tonight, in relief, but mostly in your honour sir.

    THANK YOU!!!

    If anyone has the same problem as above, use this solution... problem solved in seconds.

    THANKS!!!!!!
