@markbookpro it is absolutely not necessary to replace your logic board; this is very easily repairable for someone who does microsoldering repair. Either by replacing the broken connector, or worse case scenario if replacement parts are nowhere to be found (happens sometimes), connecting the cable directly to the board. We’ve done it before and it is pretty straightforward.
Even for someone who is not a microsoldering technician, but good enough with a “macro” soldering iron, it can be pulled off. Provided your hands are not shaky and you do not knock adjacent components off.
If you don’t want to venture with this repair, you can mail it in to a reputable micro soldering tech. They can fix it and even replace corroded components if any are to be found following the liquid damage it has suffered. Some of them contribute to the forum here like @oldturkey03 said. Depends on where you are located.
Get help next time. Clearly you shouldn't be attempting repairs until you have more knowledge and experience. Maybe get some experience on totally dead, scrap circuit boards.
Never have food or drinks any where near your work space, etc.
Thanks for the intention to help. I'm still looking for an answer to my question - and didn't find this very helpful as you may have assumed incorrectly my experience and context of the issue. I assure you no food/drink was near me when repairing. Thanks for your help.
I have the same problem and didn't find a solution. The socket sold in internet cost to low for beliving it's real in sell. Howere I 'm not able to put because I don't know how is fixed because there is no photo of what was under the socket fixed on the mainboard. I have tried to put some scotch! But the real problem is how to conect pin versus pin on the mainboard because the pins of the fan are inserted in the socket of che cable fan and there is no more the socket I have broken on the mainboard. On web I couldn't find the socket! otherwise I should try with a modern glue but it seems very risky because I have no idea of how the conexion works! Pins must touch the others pin how?
Were you able to fix this issue ? I have something similar going on eteeem I pulled off the DC power jack connector and need micro soldering or something
@srajasekharrao - best to create a fresh question with some pics so we can see things, other wise time to find someone with the needed skills to fix your system.
