I pulled mine off (
) by pushing too hard on the plug. Its not defective, just fragile. If you look closely there are a couple of solder tags either side of the socket that are supposed to give some support. Also there is a little bit of double sided tape under the socket. Mine came away cleanly and didnt damage any of the tracks so I had a friend who is adept at SMC repairs re-solder it for me. He also reinforced it with epoxy.
RV standard $35 charge for OSD repair would probably cover it, but how long can you go without your OSD? If you are experienced with SMC soldering, go for it, otherwise give it to someone who is.
