I have an original duo, good working order. But the kettle lead socket that soldered onto psu, one side of it started to spark.

I've desoldered it and can see one pin is broken. Anyway I can fix this or extend the pin.

Just solder a piece of thick wire onto it and feed it through the hole in the board. Make sure sure all the joints are properly soldered after.

I've seen a few IEC sockets fracture off boards, maybe something to to with their size and thermal expansion.

I could remove a piece of copper from some solid core electrical cable I have.

Hopefully this is the only issue and not something else that's caused it
