Replacing USB ports on MacBook Pro
I had two cords plugged into my Macbook Pro's USB ports. It was lifted sideways, causing the cords to bend the ports. Both now only work if I push a cord down, which I assume is pushing the port's pins back into the logic board. So I'm assuming they need to be soldered back into place, or possibly replaced. Has anyone done this repair? I just got this Macbook fixed, and now with these ports broken it really sucks. I have a spare logic board from a 2009 model (display circuit is fried) that I could take ports from, and possibly practice the repair on.
I've done many Macbook repairs and I'm experienced with soldering, though not very much with SMDs.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
I also just saw this, which gives me some hope: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvV0hCN4...
Not completely sure what he's doing though.
The vid shows the tech replacing a burnt fuse link on one of the USB ports. Each of the USB ports have a small fuse so if the power lines of the port receive a voltage spike the fuse burns Vs the logic behind it.
