USB Bad Connection

Q&A forumUSB Bad Connection
beatified asked 1 month ago

I am having an issue with retaining a reliable USB connection to the V1.1 board to my Android Tablet Phone or Computer. I tried reflowing the solder for the USB Connector but this didn’t seem to help. I have a feeling it might be the inside of the USB Connector not a solder joint.
Can anyone give me some clues on how to resolve this problem?
Thanks

And BTW I have tried a few different USB Cables and have the same issue no matter which one I use.

Hi Beatified, can be a solder problem but also that the usb connector is worn out after excessive use. The thing is that a reflow on the usb connector can have added a new issue together with the previous one, so there’s not much we can suggest other than replacing the complete usb connector. We offer this service at a fee.
