I need recommendation to repair power adaptor connector.

History

Allan Jones responded to my inquiry on Apple support community post on 5/4/13.

I am located near Madison, WI. He suggested finding someone who could solder the connector to the board. Any suggestions?

First read through this guide: http://www.ifixit.com/Device/Soldering

Next order this:

Lead-Free Solder

and this:

Soldering Station

Never pay for soldering again.

Soldering Station

Use to solder items. — 50+ available at 24.95 each.

Product Image

Lead-Free Solder

Lead Free Solder in a handy dispensing tube. — 50+ available at 4.95 each.

Also get: fine point replacement tips, desoldering braid and some practice boards (you'll want a lot) it's easy to burn up the board & traces. (See why I said it might be smarter to pay someone to do this?)

Use the yellow pages or google for electronics repair shop. Soldering component boards (and disassembly of that sonic sealed uint) is not an easy DIY project.

Good Luck
