Bradley, this is a SONY 40BKB537U-CNF2G board….where can I get one? The mini charge port is bad on mine and v difficult to replace.

Hello. If you have some soldering experience, it is more economical to replace just a charging port itself. Just google this exact words Micro USB Charging Port OEM Type for Sony SRS-X3 and you’ll find it. Good luck with your project!
