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.
