    Well i have missing pins on minidvi port my macbook. the minidvi port is connected to the logic board. a new logic board is like 500 dollars. the minidvi port has 32 pins i don't know if it is worth the hassle of replacing one. has anyone ever replaced one of them. i really don't use it very much but it is nice to have.

    Apple will charge $280 parts+labor to replace the logic board if they don't deem it accidental damage.

    You'd have to have some highly specialized equipment to re-work the logic board and beat Apple's price there.

    Take a look at the diagram of the port here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mini-DVI

    Is the missing pin one of the "spare" pins? If so, it may not matter...not positive though. There are also two "not installed" pins, which I'd imagine either are blanks or are missing from the factory, so that may cut you some slack as well.
