Hi all, so my kids damaged the USB port, I have replaced the port, as I have had the port off/on few times I have now lifted the second pad from the left (hidden pins side)
I have checked the caps around the M9 chip and around the P13 there appears to be no shorts (only continuity to ground on one side)
I checked the chokes for continuity straight and for shorts “cross ways”, I did find one of them shorted, but I believe that was caused by a soldier bridge at the port pins(the short has now gone)
So, if I run a jumper wire from the port pin that has the missing pad to the second from the left choke (seems to be RX1+) would this over come this issue?
I see that people do diode test from the back (hidden pins) but I can not see the pins at all, maybe I have a different port, seems to have a plastic edge, maybe this can be removed to see the pins? Perhaps this will be the way to fix the jumper wire to?
Any help appreciated.
