    I'm not sure about the plug. I don't use that plug, instead I have always cut the plug off of my camera cable and soldered to the pads right there. I figure its more secure than the plug and if I need to remove the camera I can just unplug the cable from the camera and leave it soldered to the frame.

    I just fixed the roll plug that came de soldered from my top board a little while back. It's an easy fix if you can solder and have a fine point tip for your soldering iron. Mine has worked great with no issues.

    If you still have the missing pin then yes it is reparable as long as there is a land left on the board.

    If mine comes apart again I am going to do what kpaine suggested above. I will just solder the leads directly to the solder pads.

    Yes but first to determine what you will need you need to know the pin sizing and the pin to pin center spacing.

    Oh I forgot, Digikey, Mouser and Newark are the sources for such, keyword PC board plug or header. Also someone here might be able to drill down to the correct plug if you could post a few shots of the damaged unit with a pocket ruler next to it.



    And while you are at it post a shot of the socket that plugged into it, the shape of it might provide a clue.
