    Default HELP!!! RCA pin stuck in my mixer!

    I have a Behringer DDM-4000 Mixer and I took my mixer to a club I was DJn at cause theyre mixer broke. Well after the night was over I removed the audio out RCA's and one of the pins stayed stuck inside. Am I going to have to dissasemble the whole thing to get this pin out? I was thinking of using super glue on an allen wrench or something with enough leverage to pull it out. Any other suggestions?

    If you have a spare broken HDD, the magnets are really strong.

    is it really clever to be putting a strong magnet up to an electrical piece of equipment ? just open up the case and get a pin and push it through from the other side ?

    Should be fine with a mixer. you only have to worry if it's something like a hard drive.

    Turn it off first, though!

    That happened to me a few times. I used crazy glue and a stick. glue the stick to the pin and pull it out.
