Replacing A Charging Port On A Bluetooth Speaker Board.
A technician and also a friend of mine brought this device for port replacement. This technician did not have the charging port for replacement so he sends it to me to do that job.
He already took the board out and from what I saw; the area of that charging port was a big mess.
As you can see, it was covered with epoxy and it had to be removed and cleaned.
And if you look the soldering job done there, it is even worse than the epoxy itself.
Here I have a variety of charging ports that fits almost all phone except iphone of course.
I have taken the old charging port off board, cleaned the area, found the right replacement and then tested the board.
The middle three pins were not connected to anything so the only pins that needed to be soldered to the board was the ground and the hot which was very easy to do.
And as it is seen in the photo, the charging LED light came on which is an indication that all went well.
