How do I fix a broken USB port that is shorting out?
I dropped my macbook pro a long time ago with a cable plugged in and the port stopped working. It was only one port and the other one was fine. No noticeable differences of the ports besides the fact that the broken one's internal "tab" in the port itself is a little higher than the other. Nothing is sticking out etc. Now both USB ports are disabled and the notification of them using too much power is reoccurring, (both ports are now disabled). I replaced the battery and it did not fix it. The battery is draining a lot still; also the console shows that the port is causing an "overcurrent detected".
Any help would be appreciated.
Is this a good question?
