Replacing a damaged charging port on my Pixel
How can a damaged charging port be repaired/replaced?
Is this a good question?
The Google Pixel is Google's first flagship phone, released on October 20, 2016. The 5-inch AMOLED display device comes with 32 and 128 GB storage options and is available in three colors; Very Silver, Quite Black, and Really Blue.
@ricka , Rick, Google has partnered with tech repair chain uBreakiFix and are not making the charge port flex cable/daughter board available yet and want $85.00 to change. You may be able to search Ebay, Amazon, etc. for a used daughter board or you will have to repair what you have. The port it self is a new type C type Micro USB, may be hard to find the correct replacement to solder onto your existing board.
This is really not a repair for the inexperienced because the charge port for your device is soldered to the daughter board and the heat generated could cause further damage if not very careful. If port undamaged and just loose it may be able to be resoldered to board. I will post a 2 link's to a tear down guide to get you inside the tablet to check the charge port and will also post a link showing what is involved in repairing a mini USB attached to the board(example not your exact device). The last link is to new charge port(compare part to old, to make sure match), which you can also do a search for better pricing perhaps if needed. If not wanting to do the repair yourself have a good computer/cell phone repair shop have a look and estimate repair. Good luck.
I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
I don't understand a word in the video, but the pictures seem easy enough to follow.
Watch from beginning up to 3:45 to removal of the PCB with the charging port. From here it is clear the port is soldered in, so you can try to find a whole new PCB, or desolder the old port and solder in a new one.
Hope this helps.
