I received a used module with a broken pin stuck deep in a socket. It's a VCA2 R2 with new-style socket and the pin is in IN1, so that's bad.
Does anyone have any ideas how to remove this pin, short of replacing the entire socket? I don't have access to a soldering iron for a year.
Sorry, only just seen this thread. The only thing I could think of doing in this situation was to cut an existing patch lead plug down slighly so it sat in the faulty socket better, then hold it in with electrical tape and move the other end to wherever you wanted in the patch.... I've got some "one-ended" leads permanently attached at the other end to a patchbay and it works well.
