You need to replace the socket with a good quality Augat - preferably Turned Pin Socket.... but to test that the fix will work, you could run a wire from the underside of the board and tuck it into the Pin28 socket on the top. That would prove the fix necessary.
Do you have a Solder Sucker? I could post you a Socket if you like but I wouldnt attempt it without a Solder Sucker ... unles you want to cut off each leg and extract it through the board and then wick out the solder with desoldering braid!
Where are you?
