I had the same thing happen to me just tonight. Only problem is the tiny pin went down into the ac adapter while trying to retrieve it with tweezers. I have several ac adapters that will charge my PE but what do I use to replace the tiny pin to get a connection for charging? I have no confidence in my ability to replace and solder a new socket. My husband was the go to man for anything computer related. Unfortunately he passed away right before Christmas. I am now doing my best to ask questions and learn.

I know this thread is several months old, but it can very well be the answer to my dilemma.

@fgruber do you know if the socket for the EE is the same for the PE?

As far as I know the power sockets are the same for both the PE and EE.

If you don't feel confident to replace the socket yourself, maybe someone at the local technical college would do it for you.

Great idea Ivanjt! There is a technical college less than a mile away from where I live. Thank you!
