This repair should be fairly simple given the correct tools and experience soldering. If you do not have any soldering experience, it is recommended to practice prior to attempting to replace any parts in the Sonos Bridge. Taking apart the Bridge is quick and should not do any permanent damage to the device. This repair might be necessary if the device does not power on correctly or requires special manipulation of the power cable to have consistent power. If the power cable feels lose in the port, the port may need replacing.
