This is likely to be a really rare situation. I bought Sony's Digital Paper DPT-RP1 and it was great. Unfortunately, while it has a wonderful design, it doesn't seem to be so sturdy. Just now, its stylus rolled to the ground, and the stylus tip broke in half!
Unfortunately, it seems that the break was exactly at the surface where the first (longest) part of the tip is connected with the second part of the tip. Now, the first part of the tip is totally stuck within the stylus (there is a kind of latch mechanism to hold it in place) and I don't seem to be able to find a way to get it out.
There are about 2cm from the outside of the stylus to the broken part.
I tried to use a needle to nudge it out to no avail. I guess it's really tightly snatched in place by the mechanism around, and it's really long.
I don't live in the US so the local Sony here doesn't officially provide any support. I really don't want to buy another stylus which would cost me more than 100 USD... Is there any hope to get it out somehow? Would some sort of local tool store be able to help me?
