soldering help on circuit board of home audio

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I lost the proprietary pioneer ac to dc power adapter plug, if you look at the plug you can see normal plugs won't fit.

I am trying to solder a new standard plug to the circuit board, it doesn't have to fit perfectly as long as it works by passing electricity.

do i

1) melt the original contacts to remove the old plug?
or
2) just solder the new one to top of the existing

i just need to know where on the circuit board is + and where is -

and any tip on soldering, i have a solder iron some where but i was never trained to how to use it.

Before doing that. Have you looked on eBay for the power cord? Usually you can get stuff there on the cheap. I've bought like 3 power cords for my laptop for less than 10 bucks each.

You'd probably find a good used one for less than 25 bucks.
