Need help: USB connector broke, where to get another one?

11 posts in this topic

Sadly, my HTC Wizard/Cingular 8125 USB connector broke off. I'm not sure how it happened but I can only guess the pressure of inserting the mini USB cable wore it's soldered mount points and gave way. I tried soldering it back but when I adjusted those little prongs underneath so it would have good contact with the board, a prong broke off. So I'm out of luck and can't recharge the battery. Does anyone know where I can purchase the identical piece so I can solder it back to the board? Also, has anyone else had this same unfortunate fate? ;)

Thank you, but could you specify which part you are talking about in the catalogue? (there are many that really look alike!)...

I need to change the USB connector in my Cingular 8125 but haven't opened it up yet (I will open it up at the last minute, I can use it, until then), so I do not know which part it is exactly...

How difficult was it to take it apart/solder/put it back together?

Thank you very much for your very precious help!

Hi there I have an O2 mini s which has the same problem. I have attempted a repair on it I would advise great care as the pins at the rear of the USB block are very fragile and are easily snapped off. Luckily I had a spare USB block in my box of bits which I will attempt to reattach. Personally unless you have a very steady hand I would recommend spending the money to get it repaired by a professional as the alignment of the pins is vital to ensure successful charging and syncing.
