    The tip of my official Palm 2.5mm to 3.5mm audio adapter (the barbed loooking bit after the last plastic ring) has snapped off inside my Treo650.

    It wont shake out, so whats the best way of extracting it? getting some tiny tweezers to pull it out?.. or shall I aquire the tools to open the housing and push it out from behind? (is that possible)

    Although the broken tip is lodged firmly in there, it doesnt cut off the speaker so there is no interruption to general phone use, but I do listen the TCMP quite a bit; but now the adapter doesnt get enough contact on the broken tip to listen to audio and the new ones wont fit unless the tip is removed

    You could buy the Seidio adapter that provides audio through the Hotsync connector.

    Or have someone open the Treo and remove the tip. That will cost more (unless you do it yourself as per instructions at

    Super glue and a toothpick. Cut point off toothpick so you have a flat surface, put a dab of superglue on flattened end of TP, put TP w/ superglue on the broken audio adapter, let dry, pull out audio adapter.

    And if it doesn't come out, you can always use the protruding tooth pick as it was originally intended......

    just make sure you don't use too much glue that it can drip onto the TREO and then u have a stuck tip AND tooth pick, giving the TREO yet another function as jrfaris pointed out.

    I would never use glue for this.

    (Is this the answer .. khaytsus?)

    Actually, you can just take off the back case, remove the battery and push it out through the exposed hole. I discovered this after breaking off my adaptor in the jack, messing with it for an hour, then later when I changed the battery the broken tip just fell out into the battery compartment.

    The real answer is, "What is the question?"

    You star Ree Nigne !! That worked a treat, Im glad I posted the question on here before took my treo to bits !!

    I had already, at work, shaved down a cap from a ballpoint pen to use as my toothpick and was ready to start glueing at home this evening - but now I can listen to tunes on my way home...

    I'll keep the tip as a souvenier, thanks Ree Nigne
