Question about Pioneer CDJ-800 Turntable
Hi there,one of my rca centre pins has snapped off and is stuck in the rca socket and I can't for the life of me figure how to ge the damned thing out!!!!!
It is on one of my Pioneer CDJ800's (original,not MKII). I opened it up to see if I could get in from the back but no joy =o( ........Is there any possible way of getting the bugger out? or will I have to buy the whole unit inside which has both the audio and digital sockets on it.
Any tips and hints would be greatly appreciated.
Is there any amount of it sticking out of the socket? If so, you can possibly use a FRESH carrot, or other "hard" vegetable, mush like you would with a light bulb that has broken with the contact end still in the socket.
If you open the casing, you may be able to use a small pin to push the metal out through the center hole (if there is a hole and it's not a sealed connection on the interior of the unit)
Next thing is to find some small needle nose pliers, or a precision screwdriver, the idea here is to apply pressure to the sidewall of the pin that is stuck (from the outside of the machine)
If you have pictures of how it is stuck, that would help. Just email them to email@example.com
