i am blond and i need your help Answered

i have a problem with a piece of breadboard on a small turntable. i took it apart and and found that the strip of metal from the ac adaptor jack to the rest of the thing has a crack all the way across the strip of metal. I am lazy and inexperienced...and would like to know the easiest way to fix this problem without going to radio crack. it's not my turntable and i also want to mess it up any more. i don't have a soldering gun, but i do have other stuff lying around, like an assortment of tape and glues...can anyone give me any suggestions? thekathy >:]

I can't see it causing any more damage, just hope it works. :-P

You COULD in theory try to tape a wire from each side of the broken trace (The wires you see in printed circuit boards "what you call a breadboard" are called traces, see we all learn something every day. While that what I suggested could work, it wouldn't last long. You're gonna need a soldering gun to make any permanent fixes. Sorry but that's it or you could acquire a new circuit board for that model of turntable but it would seem more "logical" to just spend the $20 for a soldering gun and some solder.

thanks dude, i really appreciate your input. I will tape it and go from there. I'm not at home where my I store my nerd-em-up tools, which I have plenty of...including a solder sucker and my all time favorite, a moist sponge...just wanted to know if tape would mess it up any more than it already was, thanks, thekathy
