It appears the nut that hold the socket in place has came off with the plug. I believe that is a 1\4" or 3\16" socket or nut driver that you will need to screw it back on. If you have red or blue Locke TiteŽ, place a drop on the screw before replacing it. Oh yeah. Remove it from the socket first :thumbsup:

If it is one of the posts that is just press fitted into the video connector and it actually broke off, you usually can't fix it without replacing the video connector. If that is the case then just take the broken post off the screw and reconnect the plug to the connector using just the screw that has the good post to hold the plug in. The plugs usually fit tight enough that you can get away without even screwing them in unless you're moving the case around or doing other wiring work right next to the video connector, so if necessary one screw should be fine.

I don't think it is really that bad of a problem as long as you don't tangle you feet in the wires often... All my connectors are just pushed in... I don't screw them in and have never had the wire come out...

Walmart or most any hardware, or automotive store. Loctite blue would be best.
