Default Re: Dell 2007FPB teardown

That's not safe to use any longer. I am afraid you will have to remove the inlet, clean as much as you can, drill out the burned stuff and solder IEC C14 cable in the two good positions and somewhere further on the single bad position (maybe on the fuse directly). Than somehow firm it in position so nobody tears it off.

Or you can cut piece of the board out and than place a new one in there with some epoxy, but that's too much of a work if you ask me and I am still not entirely sure it would be safe on full AC input voltage…
