Einleitung

I found a way to get access the USB port. But the really ugly place of the screws means that the back cover remains a bit loose or needs to be glued in place.

  1. A small cutting board and a slight hit with a hammer on it allows to break off the bottom side case. Inside resides the circuit board and the recharcheable battery - so be careful with the amount of force.

    • The bottom cover is held by screws that cannot be accessed/loosened without destroying the glued parts of the device.

    • With the hammering we break the plastic parts where the crews hold the cover. It worked better than I expected.

  2. The cover is still connected to the main larger part of the keyboard with two flat cable. So be careful to keep these intact.

    • Now the PCB with the broken off USB jack is accessible. The soldering on the shield was really not so good. No wonder that it broke off so easily!

    • There is a brownish flat cable to the left in the picture. Another green flat cable goes to the back as seen in the picture. I took the second one out with a tweezer, which helped me to get good access for soldering back the USB jack.

    • But putting back the flat cable was a bit fiddly. So mybe others might find it better to try soldering with both flat cables still in place.

    • The cover can be snapped back on but will not hold very tight as the screw holders are broken now.

    • Some glue would hold it in place. Bets put some glue on the locations where the screw-points are.
