    My wife was moving the new (2 weeks old) tv (50H82 toshiba) to dust (Who knows why but never again) and snapped off both center pins on the RCA audio output cables in the back of the tv. I was able to pull one out with a pair of forceps but the other one is buried. Is it safe to pull that panel that houses the connections off and try and push it back through from the inside. Any help would be appreciated[​IMG]

    DO NOT OPEN YOUR TV!

    There are high voltage capacitors in there, and they CAN KILL YOU

    Take it to a repair shop, where they have the proper tools to discharge them
