Doesn't look "jumpered." Ground (?) to pin 1 AND jumpered to casing (?), white to pin 3, red to pin 3. :D 

The inner conductors of the Monoprice cable are white and red? Hmmmmm..well I guess they can change whatever they want whenever they want. The color makes no difference of course. Just an interesting factoid.

Haha ... wood skewers ...  OK; used "new" ones :D 

Chicken Satay Skewers with Peanut Sauce - Perfectly spiced grilled chicken skewers soaked in a coconut milk and peanut butter marinade, then grilled and served with a delicious peanut butter dipping sauce.

Hello,

Go to a medical supply and get some surgical pliers with a very fine small tip on them. I have had good luck with this method

Cheers,

Yes this is correct. Of course the colors of wire do not matter. As long as the wires on 2 and 3 are the twisted pair and 1 is the shield. As I have posted in several different threads--you must think about where the current wants to flow and where it will flow.

Tried that earlier; does not work ... would need "reverse" pliers to get into the tip :(

Do you spend a lot of time removing the broken tip, to find out it may not be the problem, or do you spend a lot of time chasing down the hum, to find out you should have removed the tip? This conundrum is causing me to experience some stress. Can you just buy another amp? 😮

I hope my English will be good😂
To get your tip out: you can put your vertical amp with the back side facing the ground. Then then with a flat screwdriver you lift one by one the metal tabs of the 1/4 female socket starting from the deepest, the male point will descend stage by stage😉

Try this:  The tiny pin hole in the rear of the female connector that the pin is broken off in?  Take a bobby pin and push it in there just enough to make some room.  Then slip out to McDill AFB in Tampa and get just a tiny bit of C-4 explosive.  Won't take much but pack it in tite.  Replace the cover on the amp, point it out the sliding doors and power up.  Might want to put a concrete block on top of the amp but something's gonna give.  Use a 100' extension cord just to be safe.  Good luck brother!    :)

Might be easier to drill a 1/4" hole in the back and push it through, rather than trying to back it out.
