USB Type-C Connector Repair

The new USB Type-C Connector is a 24 pin reversible plug connection for devices. This type of USB connector will eventually replace the Micro (Type B) USB connection which is found on the majority of mobile phones and tablets at present.

The USB Type-C cable is now poised to become the ‘universal’ cable as it is capable of supplying extremely fast data transfer speeds of up to 10Gb/s.

It is already making its way to phones such as the OnePlus 2, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and the new Apple MacBook. LG and Samsung are going to implement this new type of connection in its flagship models such as the LG G5 and Galaxy S7.

We here at Mobile Device Workshop are already able to repair this type of port in the event of damage or failure. We stock the majority of the new type of connectors for most devices.

The process for the repair is as follows;

Disassembly of device to remove the motherboard
Motherboard inpsection and damaged connector evaluation
Removal of the old/damaged 24 pin type-c usb connector​
Cleaning the motherboard from residue
Preparing 24 pins for new connector to be soldered on to the motherboard
Micro-soldering the new connector to the motherboard
Testing each of the 24 pins to check they are reading correct voltage
Re-assembling the device and testing the functionality of the USB Type-C connector
