kurtis, here is my answer to a very, very similar question:"the connector is a Molex 78171-0004 and it is readily available. It is soldered onto the logic board. So depending on what your contacts look like, it could be a straight forward solder repair. If your solder pads or the traces are torn, it would need a far more extensive repair. For that you will have to have excellent soldering skills, and the right tools. It might help if you post an image of your damaged board/connector so that we can see what you see. As for your "without sounding like to much of a nag ive put this question forward 4 times with no answer." Looks like 3 times in a matter of hours ;-) Everyone here is strictly a volunteer. We all share to help others, but it is not a guarantee nor an entitlement.:-) Hope this helps, good luck.

hey, thank you for your feedback. I had seen the previous post you had answered, but was looking for additional advice as all 4 traces (connectors) are still attached, however one of the solder pad has came off, but is still attached the the bottom of one of the traces. I will add images :)

If you can get a bit closer to the connector to see how far off the solder pad is, it might be possible to connect it to either the trace or using a circuit writer pen to close the circuit.

okay so i done a little experimenting and at a very precise position the speakers will work. With this in mind a friend suggested that i stick it in place epoxy glue? or would a circuit writer pen do a better job?

I recommend Servdigital. they charge $39 to replace the connector and $30 for adding a micro-jumper. They're on EBay too.
