Sheesh. From bad to worse. Sounds like you've got it handled though. A quick look around the net shows this is more common than you might think. Unfortunately, I saw no fix for the overheating. Got a hunch it's just a poorly designed socket. No idea of how it's configured but you might consider soldering the wires to the socket contacts if they are only crimped on on your new console.
