Question about SmartDisk PowerPlay Pro Remote Control
If you're pretty handy doing things you can try these.
1) Using a small pair of needle nose pliers, gently squeeze the USB plug back into the right fit for the port. If this doesn't work, try 2).
2) Remove the cover from the remote by either unscrewing it gently prying open the seam along the side. You may brake a little of the case along the seam, but that is replied again after repair. Once you have the case open, look at how the cable is attached to the circuit board. Before removing the cable from the board, purchase a new data cable from an electronic store, or even cheap 2nd shop, etc. You will have to purchase a DATA cable not a charging cable! They're wired differently.
Once you have the cable, cut the opposite end that you need off and either solder on to circuit board or if a connector is used cut the wires close to the connector so you can solder the wires. (should be colour coded).
NOTE: If you need to solder the wires together purchase small diameter heat shrink tubing for electrical insulation from electronics store. If you can't get it, then use 2 strips of electrical tape with the wires separated in between & press the stops together using the tape adhesive to separate the wires from each other.
If you don't know which colour goes where, look on internet for USB plug wiring diagram.
Once finished reglue the case back together with a suitable plastic adhesive.
Hope this helps. Regards Bob From The Land Down Under, OZ.
