A Broken Charging Port On A Laptop Mother Board Replaced
This board was brought to me by a friend of mine about a month ago. The issue was a broken charging port. At that time the guy asked me to just solder the broken hot tip on the port. The computer worked for a while but today the same mother board was brought back for the charging port replacement.
I already have the same exact charging port so I went ahead with the replacement.
As seen in the photo, someone already tried to take that broken charging port off board
because I could see some burning and flux marks in that area.
Here is a closer look of this broken charging port and as I said before I could see an attempt to remove that part off board.
The replacement fit perfectly on that board and it was time for the broken to come off and be replaced by the new one.
I applied flux along with low melt solder and with my heat gun set on 350 and air flow 40 I was able to remove that part in no time.
It is nice and clean and was ready to receive the new charging port.
Added flux and I soldered that new part and I gave it to the customer for testing because he did not bring the charger with the board.
He called me later on and informed me that the laptop is up and running and he will bring me more stuff for repair.
