    That JST PHDR-08VS is almost certainly the correct part, in my opinion. I took some photos of the plug and socket in my dismantled Boom.

    Plug:



    Socket:



    The ones in the Boom don't appear to be branded as JST - there's the letters 'CS' on the PCB socket, but nothing else.

    I will order and report back.

    I also plan to put in new 12v Jack. Has anyone already done the research on the correct part from digikey to swap that? I was looking on mouser, shouldn't be hard to find in the other catalog.

    Broken connector in boom

    I have one Boom that has a loose D.C. connector socket. Is this common?
    If I wiggle the connector a bit, and don't disturb it, it continues to
    connect. Annoying because if I move the Boom on my night table, I have to
    fuss with it.

    Is there an easy non surgical solution?

    Best to all,

    David

    Read the thread I linked to in my previous post.

    I've got a Boom apart at the moment, for refinishing the sticky front panel - I'll do a proper comparison of the plug this evening.
    Package from digikey arrived today. The connector is definitely the JST part identified. Perfect fit in the socket. I also ordered a new 12v connector although I understand it'd probably have been solved by the deoxy spray. The new part was less than $1, and it's already disassembled and easy enough to solder it. Had I seen these threads before I started, I'm sure just using the spray likely would have saved me lots of hassle.

    Thanks for the support here in the forum! Glad to keep one more Boom in service! And if anyone else breaks that connector, the referenced part will solve it. Just keep track of the wire order. I documented with pictures at the outset.
