    Hi,

    Got problems with the usb port and see that you can order this usb port on ebay.
    Took a look but I think you can't replace it.
    It seems to be a fixed part on the print.
    Is there a way to replace only the usb port?

    Thanks!

    Lex

    Unless you're really (supernaturally) good at de-soldering/soldering, no.

    What would be the reason they could be purchased then, would it have another application? I'm not questioning your advice, just wondering why they would sell it to the public knowing we can't use it. TIA.

    Yes that's what I was thinking!
    Why sell it when it isn't possible to replace it.
    Maybe only the mounting is soldert to the print and the connecting leads are pushed against the print?
