    Hey guys,

    Im new here and not too experienced with electronics, although I have tinkered over the years.

    I have an AItec Lansing InMotion 7 which Ive had for a few years. I have always plugged my mp3 player into its aux port at the back (as opposed to ipod dock).

    After a few years the aux socket died and I decided to open her up try replace the socket. I have successfully opened up and removed the socket. However I noticed that the socket only has 3 pins.

    I have only been able to find replacement sockets that have 4 or 6 pins. When searching I have looked for mini jack sockets. Im assuming thet physically its the same socket as if this were a headphane socket (even though its used for aux input).

    Does anyone know whwre I can find a replacement socket that has 3 pins. Its also worth noting that the flan face of each pin is perpendicualar to the socket (hope I explained that clearly).

    Any assistance is highly appreciated.

    welcome to the forums :)

    there are lots of different types of 3 pin sockets gonna need more detal and preferably a couple of good close up and SHARP and CLEAR pics so we can identify what type of socket it is

    or a pic or 2 of the plug that goes into the socket
