Re: how to fix usb ?
Most USB connections are common, where Ground and +5v are the two outer connections and the Data + and - are the two inner. The make/model of device may be helpful, but chances are your circuit board may give clues in the form of identifying marks as to which wire or cable (if any left) is which.
Old USB items are common, especially if you have a IT Department at work. Cut off a USB cable from a dead device and go from there. Search Google for USB Pin Out for direction... but whatever you do, don't wire or solder it together unless your sure which wire is which! The last thing you want to do is burn out your motherboard because you wired it incorrectly.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Called "Junk Print"...Check USB cable, Check USB port dry solder mounted on printer mother board., remove & re-fix farmatter board.. If not solved replace formatter board. If ur technically sound replace USB port mounted on board..
See the image farmatter P/No:
You could try cutting the bad cable between the torn wires and the keyboard and then sacrificing another USB cable by cutting off the end you need along with as much wire as required, then stripping the ends of the two cables, match wire colors between the cables and soldering the connections. Wrap electrical tape around each connection and then tape all the connections together. Might work. New keyboards are usually available for less than $10 at various stores like Big Lots, K-mart, Walmart. Probably not economic to fix the thing unless it was an expensive mechanical gaming keyboard.
You can try tighten up the cable behind the monitor or disconnect the cables and reconnect. You can try another monitor to see whether the mother board and the cable works. Some settings in BIOS may be changed to use on-board video card (the one embeded on the mother board, which is connected on the ports out of the card slots) on your computer so make sure it is using the graphic card that is connected to the monitor. For keyboard, if may be mechanic issue on port or keys or cables if you will not see anything wrong about the keyboard. You can try to use another USB port if it is an USB keyboard or use a USB/PS2 converter if the PS2 keyboard port is not working. If it is a PS2 keyboard, you can check whether the pins are bent and reconnect it. Sometimes that helps. If it is a wireless keyboard, then you will need to fix the monitor and then maybe fix the driver and stuff. You can remove all objects beneath the keys by putting it upside down and shake it or use a blower.
If it's not the original Navman usb loader then there's a easy solution to this : With a sharp knife carefully open the usb cable : you'll see four tiny cable's with different colours . You;ll have to cut two of those four cables ; Leave the black and red cable intact.
Use some tape to fix the cut in the usb cable. Now you can use your car charger and your navman won't go into usb mode.
if you have no led, the board has no power. you can only have 4 usbs in one hub, and each of those usb cables cannot be over 16 feet long. if it's red, it's not communicating with the computer. check the usb port on the computer. disconnect the usb fron the board and reconnect it. if it's amber, there is a checksum error, so reset the SC9 controller by pushing the reset button on the side of the SC9 for no longer than 3 seconds. if the pen tray leds cycle, all should be well.
I had the same problem a few days ago (April 5 2009). The problem
turned out to be a dodgy USB socket on the back of the Tape2PC. There
was a bent & broken pin in the USB socket.
Perhaps you have a similar problem with the USB port - have a close look at it in good light.
took the the cover off the tape2pc (6 screws), and then removed the
small circuit board containing the USB socket (2 screws). The part
number on this board is 0038-2410-0000. This small board is connected
to the main circuit board on the base of the box by a short cable. You
just unplug this cable from the USB port board, cut a cable tie, and
replace the USB port board. It is a very simple and quick job - it took
no more than 10 minutes and only requires a small Philipps head (+)
I don't know where you live, but I phoned the UK distributor for Ion and received a replacement board within 2 days.
The PC now recognizes the tape2pc again but I can't get any volume when I try to record my cassettes. Any suggestions with this?
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.
If you have a screwdriver q tip and rubbing alcohol you can fix it. Take the screws out remove the cover and locate the laser. It looks like a small lens. Dip the q tip into the rubbing alcohol just get it damp not dripping. Clean the lens with the Q tip and then put it back together.
