I have a loose audio plug on my Rev 6.2 A2000. Audio plays fine, there are no problems there, but the plug wiggles from side to side, it is just loose.

I haven't taken the motherboard out of the box (yet) to fix.

Is it likely to be a simple re-solder job from the underside of the motherboard?

Ah that is very very common, I had this problem with mine as soon as the structure underneath bends slightly, the whole plug will move, yeah it's very easy, heat up the solder and push the plug further in place, or better yet get another plug with a better underside structure, these ones aren't the strongest
