Okay this is really a tough one to answer. the tough part is that you do know what is broken and that you do have the part. Now, what is your comfort level when it comes to soldering small parts on a logic board? If you have enough practice you might want to give it a try. This question I've broken the DSI motherboard power connector!! has a bit more info as well. It can be done, and right now you do not have much to lose. Either give it a try or find a person that is comfortable doing it. Your local TV repair shop might be a good place to get some help. Good Luck.
