Replace the Logic Board after power cable is stuck in port?

I'm trying to repair my neighbor's 2001 iBook. The end of the power supply connector has been stuck in the laptop for almost 9 years! I read the iFixit manual on how to take-apart the lower case to access to power supply port. I was able to pry out the connector out of the port with tweezers and electrician's dental picks. I separated the port from the logic board by accident. Do I have to replace the entire logic board or the power supply section of the logic board?

Hi! It depends on what you mean by "separated the port from the logic board", but it sounds likely you just need a new DC-in:

The DC-in is not actually part of the logic board itself, but a removable module. If the port has come off of the "logic board"-like part of the DC-in, then you should just be able to replace the DC-in. If that doesn't look like what you need to repair the machine, let me know.
