Title: Micro USB port Broke off the board
Post by: Darth Terminus on August 13, 2022, 07:13:24 PM
Hello All,

The Micro USB port broke off my board... What are my options... The pads have broken off as well

It looks like the the data + and - pads as well as the ground is still there on the PCB so you can possibly manually solder wires there air.and place a USB port slightly out of the board
Or try a hot air repair. CA glue can be used on the side anchor pads to secure the connector
I'm not at the computer right now but you might double check the pin out of the micro USB in compare with your remaining traces and pads on the PCB to see if you can hot air solder it back in place

Thank you Erv! Looks like the ID - Mode Detect pad came off, and its still attached to the pin. Will see if I can get it back on.

Not needed, you can remove the pad from the connector with no need to reattach it it's not used by the design only data pins and ground.
