My friend, I have now opened the Mac a couple of times, only to discover that the receptacle for the broken pin is soldered onto the motherboard. It has no openings apart from the opening that is used by the broken pin. What are my options, apart from replacing the motherboard? Thanks.
Dear Mayer, If I cannot get the tip out, I will need to replace the entire I/O frame I guess. Is this correct? Where do I get this. I do not see it among the parts that are listed for the MacBook. Thanks. Paul.
