Hello, is the broken pin on the back of the unit or is it on the antenna cable plug? If it is on the unit and not the cable, you would most likely need to replace the connector that is attached to the PC board inside, which extends through the back of the case. This would require knowledge of soldering / desoldering pc boards, etc. and would be best performed by a "bench technician". There are no "user replaceable" plugs available.

Testimonial: "Hi John, Yes the broken pin is on the unit. I will have to take the unit to the electronics repair man as I am not that familiar with soldering. I was hoping for the "user replaceable plug", but knew that would be a long shot. thank you very much for your help. "

Too easy...go to any of the DIY stores, Lowes or the Depot, or your local hardware and pick up a male end for the cord. It's an easy installation, will take you MAYBE 10 minutes.

3.5'' internal memory card reader/writer installation problem

Your reader/writer is set up for use on 2 USB ports (hence the 9 pin connector), one port for the reader and one for the externak USB port. This has nothing to do with the port version. The long and short of it is you need a card with a matching internal header. NEVER break off a pin! Some of these headers have reversed connectons so you probably broke of one of the data pins and runed that header's ability. Typically the readers like you have come with several cables, so that they can match the headers you have available. Older motherboards and add on USB cards did not use standardized header configurations aas you seem to have found out. Your best bet at this point is contact the manufacturer of the reader and find out what brand of add on USB cards they recommend and go with that. AND AGAIN NEVER REMOVE ANY PINS FROM A HEADER !!!

AC post broke

Dear Bruce;
Unfortunately the computer industry is a little bit better than the automotive industry. I thank God that I am not a automobile mechanic and I have seen some very smart and well accomplished mechanics. The mother board is not made to be repaired for the desktops and more so for the Laptops. Now, you seem to be a reasonable man and my reasonable thinking is that you throw nothing away as long as you can keep them working. How do you know if the next new equipment you buy will not be a lemon. So, you have examined the male pin for recharging, you already have found that the damage is not that much, it will not fall out within some time. We are lucky that the voltage that point is not that much. I would say give another visual and if you are satisfied, fix it and see how much life you can get out of it. Always keep an active back up of the unit, just in case, even though data loss happens when the program is in the RAM memories. Fix it up and be proud of your accomplishment. If there are funds available, figure a time that it would be wise to have a reserve. Run your computer until the battery burns up or the "wheels fall off". May the Lord bless you!

Tom Tom 1 Not charging.

I have had the same problem.
after carefully dismantling the unit I resoldered the connections to the power plug.( using a fine tipped soldering iron) I did this on both sides of the pcb.
Although the joints did not look to bad after re soldering and reassembly the unit has performed faultlesly ever since.
As you have to disconnect some sockets and remove pcb,s to do the job properly its best done by someone competent in this sort of work.
One thing to note that caught me out, make sure the lead from the internal antenna is connected as you put the unit back together

Thanks for the input.

hi, Check the photo below to see if your plastic lugs are in good condition . If they look OK then it is possible you have a bad contact to the pins or maybe even a bent pin. be careful though as the contacts are very easily damaged if you go prodding around.

Pin in back of receiver broke off

If you can put your hands on another unit for parts, you can open it and replace your damaged pin with one from the unit for parts. It takes a little time and care but you can do it.

If you bought it within a year, it should be under OEM warranty. If it has been longer than a year, but shorter than two years, and you bought it with Visa, MC, or American Express, you probably qualify for extended warranty protection from your credit card company.
