hello all,
whilst on a stressful phonecall, i've inadvertingly put my victorinox penknife pen, down the side of my spv m2000 where the stylus goes. now without dropping/smashing the unit and getting it out that way, does anyone have any idea how on earth i can remove the pen from the stylus holder ? the catch mechanism is holding it in place, although when i forcefully tap the unit on the table the pen does rattle around inside for a bit before settling itself down again. its just that the catch is stopping it from coming out.

thanks for any advice

Apart from taking the phone apart either find some thin tweezers or
very carefully use someting like a cocktailstick (with a flat end) and a
very small dab of superglue on the end.

Glue would be a last ditch effort though.
Perhaps fluffcat1 has an idea as I'm sure he's worked on plenty of them.

I did the same thing except with an actual stylus i bought off amazon. It was the wrong size and i couldn't get it out again!

I eventually managed to ease it up with a paper clip (i can't remember exactly how i did it. I think fluke played a pretty big part) and clamp onto it with a pair of scissors to tug it out. (I was in the office at the time, hence the simplistic toolkit)
