    It is what they call a mini din female plug. We just need to know how many pins or holes it has. It is also a PC board mount part.

    and the broken part is the pins that are connecting to the circuit board, so i was going to get a new one of this plug and solder it in or have it soldered in.

    Cool,
    you shouldn't have any problems ordering the part. I've worked as a component-level technician for the last 40 years. I started at age 16...

    welp im already a year behind you i guess.

    so if the part isnt right and i solder it in the circuit board it wont ruin anything will it?

    These PCB (Printed Circuit Board) mini din plugs are pretty standard as long as you specify the physical layout and number of pins. If you are familiar with soldering circuit boards, you shouldn't have too much trouble with this
