I'm new to the "sec" world, but I've put in some time soldering.  I used to be a Test Technician at a printed circuit board manufacturing company and I've done my share of bad cap replacements in LCD's and on motherboards, and DC Jack replacements on laptops. 

I can't say that I have the time to make a tutorial just yet, but I could assist with one or give some pointers.

What's nice is that a lot of manufacturers have realized the DC jack weakness and have moved from board mounted jacks to either daughter-boards or wire harnesses.  Either way it makes the repair much easier.
