usb connector is broken

Hi- this is a great guide, thank you. I have this unit, and the usb charger port broke off. Is there a way to install a new charging port?

"hi bill,

that looks bad

a shot from the top would have been better, but i think that i've seen this tight - the circuits are gone, they are teared from the board - you will never be able to solder there anything on it.

sure you can try to find the corrsponding parts for the missing circiuts and solder the contacts to those parts - but that is not an easy task"

I presently have 12 of these with the same problem. Those where the mounting contacts(traces) are still attached to the pc board can be reattached by careful cleaning and soldiering with a very low heat pencil iron(15w max). Very tedious.Once the remount has cooled add a drop of super glue jell to the board and connector.

Very easy to fix it to charge just splice into the red and black wire that come out of the battery worked fine for me

If you hadn't ripped the contacts, you might have been able to solder it back on, but this is pretty bad damage so unless you replaced the entire board, there's no chance.
