      I stick a piece of copper wire in the center to hold it to the printed circuit board and solder it back on that way the wire helps hold it in place

        I had the same problem, no dash lights. That was the only pin on mine that was broken. Fortunately the pin was still in the female socket in the plug. I soldered it back on to the circuit board. Have to make sure it lines up with all the other plugs so that when you replace the cluster and reinstall the plug that it doesn't break off again.
