Subject: RE: damaged mains socket on archos
From: rinty (rinty_at_freeuk.com)

Thanks BC,

I'll ask another friend, whose competent with an iron, and see what
he's got to say on the matter. The first friend I asked thought that
the socket was soldered to the main board, thus making it
difficult/impossible to repair.

It's not the hardest job in the world, and unless you have caused
secondary
problems, it is gonna be cheap. I don't know if you can replace the
exact
socket, but as a worst case you will be able to get SOMETHING to fit
in the
case.

Of course, the real dilemma is your lack of ocular sensory aparatus.
I
would guess that if you explain your predicament you should be able to
get
pretty much anyone with some solderng skill to help.
