Are you referring to the pins in the AC adapter connector (the power cable), or the pins in socket in the computer?

Who voted that down and why? Let's be straight with this. It's an almost impossible repair unless you really want to get down to nitty-gritty manufacturing jobs. I'm always into this but you'll need everthing fom a lathe to a soldering station. Everybody else should simply replace parts.

"You will need to replace your DC board" is not a good response, because it's not clear from the question whether Carlos is asking about the AC adapter or the DC-in port, and it's therefore too early to come to such a definitive answer. The answer only has a 50/50 chance of being right. It's irresponsible and reckless to tell people to spend money and waste time when you don't have all the information. OF COURSE it is not realistic to repair the pins. But rather than take the question literally, we need to use common sense, figure out what the problem really is, and go from there. The answer, obviously, is that Carlos needs to buy a new AC adapter, or a new DC-in, but because he hasn't responded, we still don't know which.

I think that replacement it's the best option, It would be helpful if you can tell me what tools do I need to do it... Here in Europe the dc board is pricey, but by seeing the video in this web I think I might give it a try...

I think Carlos is referring to the pins in socket in the computer, I have the same problem, two of the pins are burned, I have to spend several minutes moving the magsafe up and down to get it work (there's plenty of videos on youtube showing this issue) . I also replaced the AC adapter and the battery a year and a half ago and it lasts just one hour on full charge...
