Can you change the port where the embroidery card attaches on a Brother SE-350?

Hi Marla,

If your machine supports a USB connection to your computer, you may be in luck getting designs to and from your machine. In the meantime, the bent pins may cause issues, but if there a standard
USB cable A to B (printer cable) available you may try that. If I recall there will be some settings to check but that is another way to get designs in and out of the machine.

Lenovo USB port bent pins

The USB port/socket needs to be replaced it cannot be repaired.
It is not an easy DIY job, you need to take it to an IBM laptop repair center or a laptop repair shop.

WHY MY BIOSTAR G31-M7 TE mother board key board NOT WORKING ANY KEY BOARD?

Lets trace the problem here before we get to the solution. Check the keyboard on another computer to see whether the problem still exists. If the keyboard does not respond then the problem is with the keyboard. But if the keyboard works fine on another computer then the problem might be with the keyboard port of your computer. Now lets get down to the solution. If the keyboard doesnt work on both computers, firstly check the keyboard connecting pin. The pins inside it might have been bent, broken, pushed in or the pins have remained to the keyboard port on your computer. In the case of broken, bent or pushed in pins, REPLACE THE KEYBOARD WITH A NEW ONE. In the case that the pins have remained in the port of your computer, get a Computer Technician to remove the pin. If it can not be removed, then replace the keyboard with the usb one.

How to fix usb mouse port?

How is it damaged? Physically, i.e,. bent pins, or something broken?
If so, then total replacement of the motherboard is the only solution,
other than using a different USB port.
Or, for a desktop computer, you can add-in a PCI adapter-card, to add more USB ports.

Any time I plug anything into any of the usb ports on my Advent roma 4001 my laptop switches itself off. Please help!

If the laptop switches off as soon as you insert the usb cable, there is a problem with either the usb socket or the cable. It is a safety system which stops usb power being re-directed down the usb data lines.
If you have tried multiple cables with the same result then the problem is with the usb socket. try a different socket (a usb hub will help if you are short of spare sockets).
Using a mall light, and maby a magnifying glass, inspect the usb port for bent pins or contacts, some sockets have pins (older dell machines especially) which are not supported at all by plastic backing strip and can be bent easily by inserting the usb plug incorrectly or by children armed with a pen etc.
If you find bent pins (there should be 4 pins evenly spaced or 4 metal strips along a plastic backing peice) remove the battery and attempt to realign the strips with a small screwdriver. switch the laptop on and try a usb plug in the socket - make sure you insert the plug gently and squarely (and the right way round). If the laptop still fails, have another go or ask someone else (who is nimble fingered and technically minded) to try it.
Don't give up (unless you find the socket is broken ie. missing pins) I can guarantee 99% that this is the problem.
good luck

Yellow flashing light on dimension 5051

An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

You must have a PDF reader installed or you can use this snapshot form its Page 19 - PC Desktop Back
The cable from your monitor must connect to the Monitor port (middle and right on picture). Be CAREFULL not to force the connection. The cable only fits one way and you can damage the pins if you force it. If it won't plug in easily, then rotate the plug 180 degrees and try again.

If your connection seems inadequate, you may have bent one of the pins. If you suspect a bent pin, look into the end of the connector on the cable to see if one or more of the gold colored pins are bent. You can straighten the pins yourself with a needle-nosed pliers or a small blade screw driver use gently, otherwise try to get a replacement monitor cable.
