How do I replace my samsung captivate charge port?
I'm willing to send, my phone off for someone to fix my phone, or suggestions to businesses that know how. I took the phone completely apart, and then realized it was a soldering job. Please help!
This is possible to do, but tough
you will need your phone apart and a soldering iron that has good heat transfer and gets hotter then 400 degrees(410 is fine) to do this
You will want to use a desoldering braid and remove any old solder from the connector ONLY and replace the jack
get a female micro USB connector on eBay(note this is cheap, so i trust eBay for this)
note you cannot do it too long, you will mess up the contact pads if you do
It is difficult for me. I have a Captivate i897 and the port is dead. I have the new port sitting here and I have two different soldering irons. My heavy duty iron will not get hot enough to melt the solder. I am using desoldering braid as well. I had no luck, so I am in the market for a new motherboard but those are impossible to find. now I am trying to buy a cheap i897. I really love these phones. *I know this thread is over a year old. Did you ever get the phone fixed?
