I have a problem with my mac
What? Why would it be?
why is it superglued in?
This happened to my friend. You will need a new logic board so you might as well try to get it out, so try these:
hot glue it and try to pull it out
try the same method with a soldering iron
Super glue is in it
First I'd like to know why it's super glued.
Did a friend pull a prank on you?
EDIT. Nvm. How would super glue get it out?
XD How would that help?
i almost fell out of my chair.
try to boil it.
the superglue makes sense, just a bad idea. He tried to get something attached to it so he could pull it out and glue seems to be the perfect thing.
This is why i recommended a glue gun because hot glue, one dried can peel off if the attempt is unsuccessful.
My guess is he tried to glue the broken end onto something so he could try and pull it out when the glue dried. Try using a screw that is thinner than the jack and screw it slowly into the broken end making sure not to damage the jack. When it is firmly in, pull the screw out with your hand and the broken end should come out with it.
is it an iP4? maybe you can just unscrew the back panel off and drive the broken plug from the inside out?
What kind of glue, epoxy based or cyanoacrylate? If its epoxy, heating up the headphone jack plug until its red hot will soften the glue. For cyanoacrylate, aka crazy glue, try twisting the jack instead of pulling on it with a pair of visegrips. This type of glue has low shear strength. Acetone, aka nail polish remove will also dissolve crazy glue.
Even if you manage to get it out, the glue residue coating the inside of the jack will render it useless. Best of luck
haha that was a great plan...
take it in to get a quote.
Take it in before you make matters even worse. If it's really glued on it'll cost you, though.
What exactly was the point of this thread??
Just a glue stick that goes into a glue gun....
i really dont understand how you would think that using superglue would help get it out. i mean the op does realize that glue is an adhesive right?
I think the idea is to dab a little glue on the end of a paperclip and try to bond the paperclip to the broken piece inside, then pull them both out. In theory is a great idea.
A new motherboard is 600
Anybody know a place that will help
dugg for fail topic = win
Anywayysss.... taking it to the genius bar may void your warranty, as well as Bestbuy. I would try opening it up (screws on the back) and pushing it out from that side, or if you can't do it try to find another place that can.
Apple really needs to start allowing mac osx on 3rd party computers.
