The charging port broke. Can it be fixed?
Our daughter shoved a random charger into her brothers speaker and broke the port. Can this be fixed?
@sharpie75 and @mharrisonline take a look at this guide. Step 6 shows the port soldered onto the board. So it would not be easy. You could try and purchase a broken Bose SoundLink Color and harvest the port from it. Or you could possibly pigtail a separate charging port to it. This will depend on your soldering skills etc. If you can, post some images of the damage (disassembled) with your question. For that use this guide. That would allow us to see what you see and possibly point out where to solder to.
2 - 5 minutes
20 - 30 minutes
Within the next week, I am going to bypass the original charging port. And going to pigtail a new usb port.
Just trying to figure out the best procedure. I have over 30 years of repairing pcb components.
