Question about Boating
I have a broken power pin on my Apleco 365. I can't seem to find Raytheon or Apelco repair service. Any help would be appreciated.
My Zip Code is 32735
For the information of future searchers, I add an OEM type repair that has just worked for me.
Go to the dollar store and pick up any audio lead that has a single narrow pin in the centre. Cut the plastic where the cable enters the plug to expose the end of the pin and wire connection. unsolder the plug and at the same time using the heat from the soldering iron, withdraw the pin from the plastic that is holding it in place. Now you have an unsoldered pin all on its own.
Remove the back from the Apelco 365 and unsolder the wire on the broken pin, (mine was just a push fit). Touch the broken pin with the soldering iron and withdraw it. Insert the new pin, heating it a little with the soldering iron. From the outside of the back case, check the alignment of the pin, making small alterations using a bit of heat. Once satisfied, apply a little dab of crazy glue to fill any gaps around the pin.
Job done. In future use a little Vaseline Petrolem Jelly on the female plug and make sure the plug is square to the back when you insert it, and lined up with the notch at the top.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
