 Thanks guys, I got it working again. it was just as you both thought. unfortunately it did cut the trace somehow, but after checking the bridge I created I found it was not a good solder joint, so I redid, and now it works as it should. 
I can see what you mean about the mounted DIN. I see it flexing when I put the cable in. It looks like the case has a notch to prevent much flex, but the case itself gives too much room within the slot. 

Anyway, thanks all!
