    Hi,

    Hopefully someone on here can help me.

    Where can I get a replacement motherboard? Whilst exchanging the charging port a couple of the port connection onto the board have broken off so won’t charge now. Just needing a working board.

    Any help at all would be amazing!!

    Check Ebay for one with damaged screen.

    I did think about that but worried I get a dud. Will definitely check though. Thank you.

    Have you tried plugging the charger in the other way? as long as the usb port is soldered on properly on one of the two rows of pads it should charge with the charged plugged in one way.

    Not working at all. I might try taking the port off again then resoldering it.

    You can reflow the visible pins without removing the new port, you can also test each one by pushing it with a needle and seeing if it moves to make sure it's soldered properly. Pins 4 and 9 are 5v.
