Broken motherboard power plug
Plan to remove the motherboard after removing the internal frame in my MacMin 3,1 (late 2009) to clean out the filthy box,
Apple says to pull the very thin power cable straight up from the motherboard that connects it to the rear shelf button. What happened to me was the motherboard flat plug BROKE at both pins flush with the logic board. The is nothing to solder to.
Is there a workaround to reconnect the two line cable from the rear power button to the motherboard? I see nothing to solder to on the motherboard with no protruding pin parts as I had hoped to see.
Thanks! W. Li
