Thank you
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 seconds. 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 he pin and the broken jack with it.

Say "Thank you" 32

I tried the glue and the pin, but it didn't work. Found this tool from Kickstarter ..the gripstick ..worked for me after a couple attempts..had to tap it in a little.
