Hello,
I was cleaning my fan on my toshiba satellite a665 and accidentally broke the white 3 pin connector. I reconected the best I could. Now the laptop will power on for a few seconds and then off. Any solutions other than soldiering?

Nope. Heat causes expansion!
I was able to attach the 3 pins with firm pressure using a dental tool. Fan now works. Firugred out my ram was loose. Problem now solved.
