Re: D90 accessory terminal (remote shutter release) plug loose. Expensive.

It is truly soldered to a fairly good sized circuit board. That is all the held the plug in place. There is not "Tightening" as you would think.

The circuit lands are very close together and a bit touchy to re-solder. Also sometime the lands on the board are cracked where the plug was ripped off. I have fixed a few of this sort of thing but with the lead free solder and the small spaces involved it is best done by a skilled repairman.

Of course Nikon tech don't take the time to do this sort of repair, when replacing the board is to much more efficient and fool proof.

This is not a Nikon only practice. Nearly universal except for the pro level cameras.
