How to replace the USB port; replace the motherboard. Kind of a lame fix if you ask me. Whatever happened to soldering a new port on?

Sam Hardeman - Réponse

I have not done the fix yet but plan to replace the USB which appears to be a USB - micro B USB 2.0 Receptacle Connector 5 Position Surface Mount available at DigiKey. Is there any reason not to attempt this? I have microscope and soldering station. If not, where do you get the motherboard and how much is it?

Bill Smith - Réponse

Any updates? Did you run into any issues?

Démontage facile effectivement, mais les cinq microsoudures sur la carte mère sont impossibles à faire avec un simple fer à souder ! Il faut utiliser du matériel pour CMS (composant à montage en surface)…

Ceci dit mon problème vient effectivement de ces microsoudures. En appuyant simplement sur ces contacts mon Kindle s’est remis en marche ! Vive le travail mal fait à la construction…
