Title: GB plugin bent pins
Post by: wyaman on 10/Aug/2013 12:15:55 AM
So I ordered a retrode 2 + gb plugin a little while back, and I finally received it today. The Retrode works great, but the GB plugin has a few bent pins on the right side of the GB slot (with the label facing away from you). Is there a good way to unbend them? As it is now, you can not insert any cartridges.

Here's a link to a picture of the damage:

the pins are fine. its the plastic bits that hold the pins from protruding out too far that are broke.

probably could fix it with a bit of patience and crazy glue, but you should talk to matthias, assuming you ordered your stuff from him.

As emuDrache said, though I've never seen this issue on production adapters before (only my own kitchen oven ones where the temperature curve is obviously nowhere near the recommended reflow soldering profile). Should this actually be more common than I thought - are there other GB plug-in users who have seen similar damage?
