Is the power port surface mount or through hole soldered?

I have a 15in MacBook Pro A1226 that was dropped on on its side with the power cord plugged in. It damaged the power port. It still charges but does not light up and you have to make sure to set the cable just right. I if any one has pics of that part of the board it would help. Just don't want to remove board until I am ready to do repair. Also does anyone have a dead logic board they want to get rid of so I can get the part? Sorry I had wrong version listed

You likely don't need to replace the whole logic board. The DC-in module (the power port) is removable in the A1286, so you may just need to replace that, and try to straighten out any case damage. Here's an eBay auction for the part (I didn't see one on iFixit):

Help - I have the same problem. The power port is damaged - but my macbook pro was purchased in early 2009. The model number is not on the bottom of the mac so I don't know where to look for it. Can anyone help?

This is not an answer but a question. You can find your model number from the seial number which you'll find on the case or in System Profiler. Your Mac also has a replaceble DC-In, so repair should't be too expensive.
