This is an update to my previous post. I decided to take everyone’s advice into account and purchased the 6-pin replacement part from Ebay. I did not replace it myself. Instead, I found a reputable microboard repair shop just miles from home! They charged $80.
i need to do this with one of my mini doges as well.
I think $80 is expensive. The method to replace this 6-pin replacement part is easy.
