    Replacing USB port

    Advertisement



    My USB port on my 8100 has stopped working. I am no longer able to charge my phone. Before I buy a new port, I wanted to know if replacing the port would fix my problem. If so, how do I replace it? Do I need to solder it? I already opened my phone and looked at it but wasn't able to tell if it was soldered. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Smile did you figure out how to replace the usb port?

    I am no way paying $100 for a tech to do it. I have a mini port - no warranty. so, I have to brave it out and open the puppy up and replace it myself. any advice?

    thx

    With the casing on or off, apply pressure at different angles to the USB port when it should be charging. There may be a poor connection that has weakened over time (stress fracture). Start with the small patch-work and only do major surgery as a last resort. If you do solder a contact point, use the smallest amount possible. It's too easy to "oops" and make a paper weight.
    Good luck. Post back your results!
