One of the pins on the cord broke off inside my headset piece that mounts to the helmet. I have ordered a new cord.

Anyone have a way to get the pin out of the hole? It's in there a ways now since I thought I could get it out on my own..........:sadguy: :ssshh: :?

Jobe5, when that happened to me I was told by sierra electronics to just push the broken pin all the way in and it would not hurt anything

perhaps either a small peice of wire pushed in next to it and try to work it out, or a magnet?

I tried an earth magnet.. Didn't work. When it was sticking up a little (Very little) I put the magnet on the side of my tweezers and tried to pull it that way, but it just wouldn't grab So, based on the above (pushing it throu), I cot a very fine needle, put the magnet on it and tried to dig it out, no luck, all I did was push it deeper. I think it will push right down and not be an issue.

And yes Ejwwajaw I put the tweezers back in the bathroom so I can still go when I need to............. (Beat ya to it)

When you get the new cord, siimply cut off the same pin on it. This will solve the Interferance issue, between the old and new pins.

the new cord won't work now because it is now in the same condition as the old cord.

I think it will either push down far enough for the new plug to fit right into or it may go all the way through, I haven't taken it off the helmet to look at the back side.

Now we know the reason for Alex's signature line. "I void warranties"

I have had pins break off before, and just hooked up a new cord without trying to take out the broken piece and have never had any problems.

Got the new cord today and it plugged right in all the way. I suspect the socket is deep enough to accommodate one break anyway ......
