Jerry, only if you find a proper replacement. you can de-solder the old one and resolder a new one. Problem will be to find a replacement.

Hi Guys,

me son facing the same problem his Vita don't charge unless he push the connection

up or down a little which makes it hard to hold it all the time specially when playing

while charging

we rang Sony regarding the problem and their answer was wear and tear and a replacement will cost $180 !! even tho the vita still under 12 months warranty

how can I pay this much to fix input when the whole thing brand new cost under

$250 !! I'm going to think twice before approaching Sony products in the future

anyway

the question is how to fix this charging issue? its not fully damaged as it does charge

when lifting the connection a little .. can you please show us step by step how it

can be opened and checked internally for damage or maybe a loose wire?

thank you in advance

and thank you NOT Sony for letting our kids down.

cheers

YES you can, I did i brought a vita charging dock and brang that to ubreakitifixit .... they soldered that new piece on .... the new piece coming from the dock has a board attached to the pins and bascially there is NO LOOSE PINS THAT GET SCREWED UP OR DAMAGED ....

btw the dock cost me 10 bucks and the soldering cost 80 .... the ps vita phat is worth that price in repairs in my books because of the extreme mods you can do to it :)

Ernest Lyons,
