    PS3 power supply connector help?

    I moved the power supply on my 80 gig pal console and noticed the socket was fiddly, gave it a slight nudge and it came out.

    The connector itself is totally intact, as are the 4 pins that attack to motherboard.

    Is it just a case of putting a tiny drop of solder on each pin to get a connection?

    did the plastic connector just slide off the pins. or did the pins pull out of the board too?

    Pins came off the board however the solder on the board is intact and the pins are intact.
