My 12yr old Arcam CD player has 'died', so a replacement has been purchased. Only problem is, the Optical cable fitted will not disconnect from the CD Player end. It is as if it is welded to the input socket. I think I have destroyed the input in my efforts to disconnect it. Soaked it in WD40 but has had no effect. Anybody got any other ideas as to how to loosen the connector so that the cable can be used again? Don't really want to throw away a £50 cable!
