    I had a belkin Ipod transmitter and it fell apart while it was plugged in and now the tip of it is stuck in the plug in. It is hard to explain but there really isnt anything to get a good bite on with plyers to pul it out, any ideas? I hope this makes sense.

    Remove the receptacle and see if you can get it out that way.






    EDIT: Or try to use a self tapping screw to drill into it so you can grab the screw with pliers.
