take a quick look at it - is the pin bent all the way at the bottom or more towards the center? If towards the center, you might be able to get away with using needle nose pliers to just bend it

The pin is reasonably flexible except for at the very base (near the solder point)

i cant get a clear picture, and they are bend at the top, like, semi-lopsided

and i cant do it myself because I have VERY VERY VERY unsteady hands

I was wondering if anyone here could do it? If all else fails I will take it to my uncles cause he has a huge magnifying glass for electronics

this sucks though, I spent $180 and I cant even use it X_X
