    How can i repair a broken pc board.The corner broke off while i was desoldering a power jack

    The corner of the pc board broke because it was so tiny arm sticking out which just had enough space for the two side legs of the power jack to go on. now i need to join it back to give the powerjack more strength as only the back pin and the right side pins can be soldered in. The only two pins on the broken pcb are from the outer silver casing of the power jack and the second one is the one going to the inside of the power jac, which goes around the outside of the power adapter pin which plugs in. The inner pin is fine. waiting urgently for your reply...

    This is a frustrating experience. There are adhesives available that you can use to adhere the broken piece back to the PCB. Just check out at your local electronics store. In case the conductive tracks are broken, you get conductive pen. You can used these conductive pen, which contain silver epoxy most often, to draw / repair the tracks on the Circuit Board. In case you need information on soldering, you can read my array or articles of electronics, technology and soldering.
