It's my 1st post here.
4 years ago I have bought a Samsung HT-X715 audio home system.
while playing DVDs the system froze randomly so I sent it back a couple of times, until finally it was working again.
However I noticed the exterior was now scratched, I didn't want to make an issue out of it as I was happy the drive was finally working again.
4 years later, I am planning to buy a Blu-Ray player and want to make use of my home theater, my only option, as it seems, is to use optical port as the HT-X715 has only one HDMI port.
I looked at the optical port and was surprised to see it broke, inside you can see some kind of spring hanging out.
It seems I received a completely diefferent unit back then.
My question is for the technical people who know the subject or have tried replacing optical ports before, can I unsolder the broken optical port and replace it? will any optical port work?
I appreciate your advice,
