Sync cable for pocket pc 10

I bought a new sync cable for pocket pc 10 minutes ago, and automatically pluged it in to see whether it works. When I already did, I couldn't take out the cable. It has like a fork to stiffly hold in incase someone disconnects the cable inciddently, and one 'fork' (thing to hold in) failed to work, I mean it doesn't work at all, even now. I couldn't take the cable any way I would try, so I just pulled it out by force, and together with that, pulled out half of the pocket pc connector, and now I can't connect any cable to it, nor a charger. I'm completely lost, should I go to the store and tell'em to give me a working cable and fix the entire pocket pc, or what?
Help me,

Yep, should have taken the Pocket PC along with the defective cord back to the store and told them to find a way to get it out. Then it wouldn't be your problem.

It sounds as if you're hooped, but I guess it depends upon how friendly you are with the dealer. The warrantee probably would have covered having the thing professionally removed and replaced because it was defective, but yarding it out with Vise-Grips probably voided it. If your dealer is a friend, though, or even just a really nice guy, he might honour it anyway and deal with the distributor himself. Good luck.
 
Thank you guys for replies and good words. I somehow got it all running today and I can sync and charge pocket pc again. I just lost an hourto get emacs running on it, but I succeeded :)
