I'm trying to understand this so please bear with me. You plugged in a stylus into your Samsung Galaxy S5?

He has one on those styluses or styli (whatever the plural is) that are attached by a steing to a plastic mockup of a headphone jack so you can plug it in the headphone jack and not lose it. And he's saying that the plastic mockup broke inside his headphone jack and he can't get it out.

OP: did you try using a sharp tweezers to pull it out?

Ahhh, now I see. Thanks for that clarification.

And yes in regards to a tweezer (fine/needle point better).

I've helped a couple of guys before the had the end of there 3.5mm jack break off.
I got them both to take something small like a needle and depress the small leaf springs inside the jack if possible while shaking the phone upside down. It worked in both their cases but I don't know how much of the fake Jack you have stuck down in your phone
