Boss BR-532 DC Jack Repair

I really like playing music, recording it has been historically difficult.  This is mostly because I am too cheap to shell out for adequate hardware.  After trying to fix a tape deck for a good 2 hours (post on that if it ever happens...) , I figured my time was better spent fixing my roommates 4-track recorder - and so I dove in!

The problem was a simple one, the unit would frequently turn itself off, unless you held the plug just-so.  From having spent too much time fixing shitty electronics, I knew that this was simply a matter of re-heating the solder joint on the DC barrel plug.

 Some obligatory circuit porn
