Default Poor man fix Possibly if your lucky

Hi all, i have this issue and ignored it for a while as i can still have usb charge only. I came to realise which pin i actually broke by removing the battery and i could see the whole usb port from the rear of the port.

i noticed that my GND pin 5 on the usb (NOT the handsfree side) was broke and only the soldered part of it was still on because the pin are bent in right angles to reach there positions.

Ths explained the theory that if you place your stylus in you actually damage the pin and bend the angles more and more until they give. Which can me only two times as these pins are realy thin.

so i am 100 % sure that my GND 5 PIN is the problem as chargers use this for the ground. But usb cables maybe can use the ground from the Headphones GND to get a connection (maybe). So if anyone can charge from the usb cable pc then it is this pin that is broke.

I am working on a way to get a ths wire connected to left over part of GND pin and try to extend it to the normal place of this pin.

ill let you no if it worked or not

Default fix

I managed to solder the black negative wire to the usb housing of a male usb mini and now it charges without any problem. The housing is used as a substitute for pin 5 that is negative because it has a metal shield as standard.

to make it easier for some noobs, just get a usb female to a usb mini cable and cut it off and solder the negtive black wire to the shield cable around all the wires. AS standard all usb cable have this shield metal that conects to the usb housing.

This is a FIX if you have managed to break the pin5 when inserting the stylus in the usb rather than the RESET button.

My usb charging jack is wrecked but the phone still works except for the usb sync stuff and no charging.

The battery has 6 contacts and I would like to know how to "hotwire" the battery to the external charger's usb usb. Anyone see a sheet showing usb pins to battery connectors?

I had trouble with the connector .. At first it was just the connector, but other problems have appeared with time as lack of sound in the speaker and the keyboard to open the screen image to disappear, and made ​​me change the flex. I spent $ 90 ...
