Fix JBL speaker charging port?

Hiya, Metal Janet (The Wizard) suggested this as the best place to ask if anyone can FIX/ replace my JBL SPEAKER charging port.
I’m totally open to talking about money or bartering. I sew & cut hair & I’m looking for a Jive partner. :wink::black_heart:

-JBL Pulse Bluetooth Wireless Speaker
-4 yrs old used it for 1 year & port failed. :woman_facepalming:
-Must have bent the interior of the charging port. :confounded::tired_face::woman_facepalming:

Please let me know.

Genuine thanks! :black_heart:

Hi, Lizzy
It might be helpful to post a photo of your speaker with the broken port.

You may try The Hackery in northeast Vancouver. They will not charge you unless they can fix the problem for you.

Hiya! Copy that. :black_heart:
I’ll try again. Not familiar with your site. Did originally try to post photos.
Thanks for getting in touch.

I need a haircut pretty badly and can solder. Yeah, try to post a pic, definitely the best way to see damage and get idea of parts.

If you have photos on your phone, I find it easiest to just browse to this page on your phone and upload the file directly, provides the photo file isn’t too large.

I noticed that Lizzy updated with photos in her original post. Just want to bump so every one sees it.

From what i can see in the photo, the port is not visibly damaged mechanically. So @Rob_MacKenzie might have to open it up to see if it’s the jack or the charging circuit?

My best guess as a cat is.

Port itself is fine. The charge port is loose. PCB traces may be broken. Might be easier to retrofit a 5.5*2.2 mm DC jack.

Better to replace USB port if all is ok. They get loose and better to replace if traces ok. I do have usb jacks if you send pictures of internals
