GY HD 110U AC Power/Battery Issue

Well I finally have run into the problem with the tip of the AC power plug breaking off inside the camera. This causes the camera to not recognize battery power. I have read that you can "twist out the yellow tip" with a jewelers screwdriver and the battery will work again. My question is if I do that will the AC adapter still work??

Re: GY HD 110U AC Power/Battery Issue

If you make sure the camera has no battery attached, and VERY CAREFULLY use the absolute sharpest pair of needle nose pliers you can find (like literally NEEDLE nose, not commonly available but I have an antique pair that belonged to my father) then you should be able to grasp and withdraw the broken plug straight out with no "twisting" involved.

I would advise against any twisting, bending or prying if you still want to use the AC port in the future.

An alternative to extremely sharp needle nose pliers might be a set of snap ring pliers, especially if you can see the hollow interior of the broken plug. Using snap ring pliers that are set to expand the tips when you grip the handles rather than close the tips, you could probably get enough interior grip on the inside of the plug to slide it straight out.

All done at your own risk of course! I make no claims of success, just suggestions based on what I would carefully try.

Can you post a macro photo straight into the jack with the broken plug visible?
