The core of a jack to rca adapter has got stuck inside one of the monitor out sockets. How can I open the case to remove it?

    Having tried just about everything else, I finally managed to extract it by soldering a piece of thick wire onto it and pulling on this. A delicate operation, but only slight damage to the socket! At least I can use it now.

It won't be accessible from the inside. You got to get it out the way it went in.
A screw extractor might work, but it might damge the jack. You could try a large wooden matchstick, jam the wood end (duh) into the opening. While slowly rotating the stick, try to pull it out. If any part of the center is protruding, use a small needle nose plier to extract it.

I dropped my mbox with a headphone adapter in the headphone input and it pushed it inside. I can now only hear out of the left headphone/speaker, is this fixable?


Hi Hermricks,
I actually did the same thing! I still havent fixed it, infact I havent tried too, but now that I have changed my signal path I need to use the headphone jack on the MBox.
Have you found a fix yet? There seems to be relatively no information online about this or where we could buy another headphone input and replace the broken one. (which is a relatively simple process to do at home).
If you get any further with finding out whats best to do, it would be great if you could email me and let me know. info@kristopherfisheraudio.com

How do i open the mbox 2 pro?


There are five shiny screws and one black one located behind the plastic front label (the part that has the markings for the input levels and switches), plus three behind the serial number label, inside the handle part you open with the allen key. This removes the front panel, then, there are about twelve screws around the plastic casing, attaching the casing to the inner metal encasing.

There are three screws behind the foam strip on the metal casing, which attach a heavy duty metal strip to the inner casing... the rest are obvious.


This is how to deconstruct the casing in the event that something is rattling inside.

Keep in mind, if you still have a warranty on your MBOX 2, you won't anymore once you deconstruct it. So I don't advise it unless your device is well past warranty.

Though, if something is indeed rattling inside, I'm sure that's a breach of warranty conditions anyway.
You had best check on that first, but you might end up taking her apart anyway.
