Broken pin in audio jack


I have got an HP laptop. My headphone pin got stuck in the jack and its broken inside. How can i remove it by myself?


Here's what I did in a similar situation (speaker jack broke off inside). If you can't get it out with tweezers, heat up a thin nail with a lighter for about 30 sec. Use pliers to push it inside the stuck jack (inside should be plastic, so it melts and goes in). Then wait for a minute. It will cool and harden and you can pull out the pin and the broken jack with it.
