Arrow Monitor pins gone

I have just been given a monitor, with one problem - there are 5 less pins in the connection than there should be. I can see the holes so they have obviously fallen out or been jiggled loose or something.

In short, does anyone know how I can replace these pins? Because simply replacing the lead is impossible because it's hardwired to the monitor itself.

Thanks for help

Re: Monitor pins gone

Take it to a certified Monitor repairer, they might be able to put on a new connection on the end or open it and put a new cable in

Re: Monitor pins gone

1) are you sure they are missing... Why not try pluggin it in first.
2) what size is it? if its a 15" you can get them dirt cheap, probably pick one up cheaper then getting it repaired.
3) if you cant get another cable from a busted monitor and replace it yourself, then go and pay to get it fixed.
4) put it on ebay haha
