USB Port Not Working

Hello, I have a USB port not working. I dropped my macbook and it doesn't work anymore. Can the USB port be replaced by itself or does the entire logic board have to be replaced?

Is this a good question?

The USB port is built into the logic board. If you are trying to use a device that pulls power from it, it may not work if the battery is down and it is not plugged it.

That's what I mean. I can't pull power from it. Does the entire logic board have to be replaced to fix it? Or is there a way to just replace the port. Thinking soldering might be required but I'm not sure.


Will it work on the other USB port?
