Introduction

The Micro USB Port is for charging your tablet. If damage had ever occurred to it, you may find it loose, or not holding your charging cable.

    • Continue lifting up the panel all the way around the edges of the tablet.

    • Once all of the panel clips are unfastened, gently remove the back panel.

  3. The battery is heavily glued down so you will need to apply force while also exercising caution to not damage the rest of the device. Using the blue plastic opening tool, place the lip of the tool underneath the battery as seen in the photo.

    • The battery has four wires connecting it to the device. Be careful not to damage these wires while removing the battery.

    The white wire is for temperature line. What about the green wire? I have generic battery almost same size ang xapacity but it had only 3 wires, red black ang white. Green is missing

  6. The wires to the battery are soldered to the motherboard.  You may also check the soldering techniques guide for additional tips on soldering. If your device's wiring doesn't exactly match these photos, snap a picture or make a note of what color wire goes to which contact on the motherboard before you detach them.  (A mis-wired battery could cause electrical shorts and ruin the tablet for good.) Using a soldering iron, desolder the four wires from the motherboard.

    Congratulations, you’ve just ripped the connector for the front camera when you lifted the motherboard out. The other speaker needs to be removed BEFORE lifting the motherboard, and the front camera, which is glued in, loosened so it lifts out with the motherboard.

    You can also lift the rear facing camera out. It’s held in only by some double sided tape. This will be necessary to plug it back in anyways.

    BIG NOTE: The entire bottom surface of the usb port is soldered down. You must first desolder the 5 contacts then heat the entire port until it comes loose.

    How are we supposed to desolder the entire port with a soldering iron alone, as listed in the Tools Section ???? Also, even if I remove the USB port, do I not need a replacement one? Where is it in the list of required parts? The worst iFixIt guide ever !!!

Where I can find a micro UBS port for Nvidia shield tablet ?

Micro usb -B, Amazon.

it's a standard form factor, just check ebay

Daniel Monaghan - Réponse

my charging port is damaged,solder a new one or get a replacement board

Mr.lilnug - Réponse

It might be cheaper to solder a new one. I would compare prices, and decide if the price is worth soldering. If you want experience in soldering, go the solder route. Refining this skill will help later if you need to solder anything else.

Ryan Butler -

To remove the mainboard, it’s not necessary to remove the battery. I would strongly recommend to keep it in place.

De-soldering is sufficient.

Manque: Tresse à dessouder, soudure laiton (fils batterie + fixation Micro USB) + pâte a braser, fer à souder CMS (air chaud) (pour pin Micro USB)

Manque: Micro usb port neuf

Inutile: (3,4,5) juste dessouder les 4 fils, ne pas essayer de la décoller, ou utiliser un dissolvant si autre besoin de réparation.

Erreur : 7, le câble noir n'est pas un câble d'alimentation, pas besoin de le déconnecter, voir étape 8 et 14

Dernière étape, il reste le plus difficile, ressouder un port USB neuf sur la carte mère, facile, souder les 5 pins beaucoup moins et surtout quasi impossible avec un fer à souder standard, peut être avec l'aide d'un microscope ?

Il faut un poste soudure CMS et de la pate à braser que l'on aura déposer sur les pins avant de fixer le port usb sur la carte mêre.

Tuto Utile pour les propriétaires de tablette ayant le matériel et le savoir faire en électronique, inutile pour les autres, entre le savoir faire et le prix de l'investissement matériel. Cherchez un professionnel et compter 60-80 euros.

Marc Leveille - Réponse

Thanks for the tips. I recommend using a de-soldering tool instead of braid though. It’s basically a spring loaded syringe that works backwards, sucking up the molten solder.
