Electronic Advice Please! What can I use to stick this back down?

I have a Making Memories 'Slice' Elite machine. It's a clever little cutting machine used for cutting intricate designs out of paper or card. It recently stopped functioning correctly, but is out of warranty. I took it apart and can clearly see the problem. One of the 'sockets' has completely come away from the circuit board. The pic in post one shows the problem. If I hold the socket firmly in place, full function is restored - how can I secure it safely? I dont want to cause more damage doing the wrong thing, but am tempted to try superglue!!! How are these things attached in the factory - is there somewhere I could take it where a nice smile and a few quid might get a chap to do it for me? I'm thinking of PC/Console repair places... but have NO idea.

In the pic, the top plug is how it is supposed to be, the middle is the socket with the plug removed and the bottom (circled part) is the absence of socket and plug.

Help please!

These connectors are soldered in, a quick and easy job if you can solder and have the equipment. If you can't get a friend to do it then any tv/electrical repair shop will, though they might charge.

maybe you could try with pliers to gently squeeze the socket.

I have repaired similar things to this by just soldering small wires to the terminals left on the board and doing away with the plug / socket altogether .Notice the holes in front of where the socket goes .................you can solder wires to these and then back to the socket thats come away and use a glue gun to stick the socket back on the board .
Better still , send it to me and I'll do it for you . Like I say I've repaired loads of intricate electronic componants .

You're a gent. I'm going to nip it to a console repair place I've just found in the yellow pages that happens to be on my route to school tomorrow. If he says he can do it in a jiffy then I'll let him have a go. My dad can solder and has the stuff, but I didn't know if this was the way to go... I imagine each 'stripe' does a different job and mustn't be joined to it's adjacent stripe in any way... Failing this, (and I won't let anyone make an utter pig's ear of it...) I'll take you up on your offer and see what you can do. At least you know what you're doing!!!

My faith in humanity is restored. We bumped into some nastiness today at the garden centre, so to be reminded that there ARE nice/helpful/kind/genuine people in existence is lovely.
