Please, I was setting up my tv connections, and I dicovered that one of the component cable's connector had detached from the cable and was stuck inside the tv. So, the little connector stick has filled a perfect hole inside the tv and is jammed all the way in so I can't use my fingers. Just picture staring at a component TV input, now fill the empty hole with a little metal stick. What to do? Need any info thanks!

PS-the 1080i/720p is the messed up input. Should instead use the 480i/480p? IS there a major picture difference?

Samsung 27 HDTV's had some problems with that, especially if you use those spring loaded gold-plated components inputs - avoid those

you will absolutely need 1080i/720p, there is huge difference with a true hi def signal

you need a qualified tech to open up the back, meaning $$$ because warranties rarely cover this
