My Charge Port is not working, do I need to replace the Motherboard or is there a fix for the charge port? Verified that the cable is good. It use to work if I wiggled and applied pressure to one side. Verified port is clean.

I was shipped a broken item and already disassembled the motherboard but I cannot find a replacement motherboard anywhere online. Did anyone manage to find one?

Thanks for the disassembly instructions. I was able to fix my power switch by cleaning the contacts with some electrical contact cleaner. After I pulled the two halfs of the case open in step 4 I could spray the switch with some contact cleaner and it worked like a charm.

My original problem was that the power would randomly turn off and had a difficult time turning the unit on. I had to play with the switch toggle it on and off and sometimes it would work. The switch contacts were dirty and all it needed was some cleaning of the contacts.
