Hi, Dc power socket on circuit board of a radio scanner. This is the part that you plug the charger into when charging the internal battery. Basically need to replace mine as middle pin missing hence not charge. Currently still trying to locate part but in the mean time can you advise. Old part had 3 pins where 2 outside pins had continuity so both earth. Middle pin is live. I have some standard female sockets but not one that will fit the pcb so i was thinking of joining the 2 outside wires at the pcb and connecting to my female socket. Also middle connection on pcb to socket. Any reason why this then shouldn’t allow a charge until the correct part arrives.
