    g'day. Dont ask me how this happened but the situation is the tip of a plug which was inserted in the audio in jack on my black macbook has broken off & gotten itself stuck in the f***n socket! Now having just watched a number of vids on you tube about disassembling macbooks, my first thought is to open it up and poke the bit thats stuck in there out from the inside? Does anyone who's had a look inside a macbook know if this will work? Also will apple fix this? warranty? cost? etc. I just wanna get the lid off and poke a pin thru from the inside dislodging the tiny tip of the plug stuck in there. So yeah, any thoughts?

    get a screwdriver put a very small dab of super glue on, let it set slightly so it dosnt drip, put it in the hole let it stick to the tip leave to to fully set pull out carefully.

    Please don't superglue anything

    If it wont shake out, you should have it in for service. Audio jacks are generally closed on the inside, so even if you took apart the laptop, the jack would still be closed to you.
