    Default Sega Saturn Problem

    i bought a saturn today and the av cord had a bent prong. i bent it back to the stand position and then plug it into the system. well that prong broke off in the back of the saturn.

    so my problem is that the prong is in the av plug in the back of the system and now i cant get it out.

    does anyone know how to get it out?

    You could very gently try to put something else in there, like a needle, safety pin, straight pin, etc, and then use that to try to work the broken bit out.

    And make sure you don't actually push the broken piece in deeper.

    Not much else anyone can tell you to do honestly. Bout your only other option if you cant get it out and its blocking you from plugging another cable in, is to mod the system for av out.
