here is the service manual for the 3680: click

and here is a disassembly video: click

check page 82 of the service manual - you can see the daughter board with the dc in socket - the board can be removed and fixed/replaced - the daughter board costs around 30$ on ebay (ebay numbers: 250663291316 & 250663268237)
