    Istick 50w firing/charging problem

    Hi guys

    i got an authentic 2nd hand istick 50w off the classifies and it worked great, loved it. but when i was re-charging it over balanced and fell on the floor, since then the charging icon stays on even when unplugged and it doesnt fire at all, i get no response from the buttons, cant even turn it on and off.

    looking at the micro usb port it looks like when it fell the small metal part inside the usb port has been pushed in - maybe. i dont want to muck around with a metal needle or tweezers and a wooden toothpick doesnt have the strenth to lever it out.

    what are my options, its out of warranty period and its 2nd hand, should i chuck it or can it be fixed?
    any suggestions welcome

    thanks all

    Got a pair of ceramic tweezers grem ? they should work.

    after getting the 100w istick, im finding it hard to believe the 50w was made by the same company.
