    This should be posted in the hardware forums, but have you tried tweezers?

    On the iPhone, you can take a needle, stick it in from the other side of the jack and push the broken tip back out the hole. Maybe the same goes for apple's notebooks?

    Yup, that's probably the ONLY way you're going to fix it.
    TURN OFF THE iMAC.
    Open the imac's case and push out the broken piece from the inside.
    Use a tooth pick, or if that's too big, try using a needle.

    Good luck.
