: Need a/d/s/ amp repair help

Hi Folks -
I have an a/d/s/ P840 that I've had for years. One of the power/ground posts has broken off. I've tried to solder it with my trusty soldering iron and solder, but it just won't take. Three years ago when I fixed it the first time I just used super glue, but I'd rather fix it the right way. Every time I unplug the power/ground connector the thing breaks off again.

Any ideas? If anyone knows of a repair shop in Santa Cruz/San Jose, CA area, I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks Dude, what do u think, DIY??? I either don't have enough heat, or don't have the right solder. It's such a simple fix that would take someone with the right tools 30 seconds to complete. I had my home receiver repaired at a place in SoCal, but what a waste to ship the thing for this simple repair.
