Right to Repair



Original post by: Ira Hecht ,


After reviewing several of the successful answers here, I took out my magnifying glass, mini flashlight, dental probes and micro needle nose pliers.  I was able to see the top of the charging plug still in the socket with the magnifying glass and the flashlight.  I used my straight dental probe inserted between the side of the socket and the broken end of the charging plug.  As I pushed deeper, the broken plug top started to come out on the side.  I used the pliers to remove the broken top completely.  I was very relieved that my phone charged immediately with another charging plug.
