Hello everyone,

My S2 doesn't charge anymore. Not at all.
I know it's not a battery problem because I tried putting in the battery of a Galaxy 2 taht works, and it was all fine.

I've searched the Internet and came accross 2 types of tutorial:
1 - to change the USB connector
2 - to change the charging dock

How would I know whether I should change (1) only the connector or (2) the whole dock?

Thanks in advance

Replace the entire USB board. Costs ~US$10 to do yourself. KeithRoss39 has a guide in General (search for 'Replacing USB charger board') which has all the info you need to get it done quickly/easily (and cheaply as previously mentioned).

As @MistahBungle says....replace the entire board. If you try to replace just the socket, you may well succeed.....but in the process you might damage other components.....which will mean replacing the board anyway...
Micro electronics and 'imprecisely' applied soldering iron heat is NEVER a good combination.......

My wife says I'm a phone geek....She's probably right
