How do I replace the micro USB port?
My son wanted a gaming device so he traded for an old Sony Xperia Play. It looks complete and like it should work but it looks like the pins inside micro USB port are broken. We are going to try and connect power with alligator clips to charge it but is there an easy way to fix this?
Is the port a standard part?
I know soldering these is not easy so I may get some help from a friend but if we can do it ourselves it would make a good father-son project.
Is this a good question?
