    Are you going to solder it or are u going to a near by electronics mobile repair shop...?

    If u dont mind, i would request you to take it to a mobile repair shop and ask how much it will cost, because u may be lucky to get it fixed for a low price, instead of paying heavy for ordering it...!!

    Please give it a try, if not send me ur details of ur handset..!!!

Turn off audible alarm when changing towers

Bad cable connection

Check the USB cable for damage and dirt, especially at the ends. Then try using the wall charger, as this will provide greater power input than the computer/USB.

Broken charger or USB cord

Try using different chargers to see if you may have a problem with your charger or cord.

Obstructed/bad dock connector

Inspect the 30-pin dock connector at the bottom of the iPhone for dirt, lint, and damaged pins. Clean out the dock connector very carefully with a tooth pick or soft toothbrush. If the dock connector is broken, you will have to replace it.
God bless you

USB port broken on old IBM Thinkpads

Thanks for providing the pictures. You don't know how much that kind of input helps!
In looking at the pictures you've sent, the only way to repair this is to replace the connector. It can be fixed, however you need to be aware that the cost to obtain a part as old as this plus the labor involved will probably be much more than the unit is worth.

One thing that you might want to try is to buy a USB hub and plug it into the working port. A USB hub is a kind of extention cord that will give you several USB ports.

The usb port is broken. It does not activate or power the interface. How Do would you go about having it repaired?

All USB ports have four leads attached. Tthe outside rails contain the positive and negative voltage of 5V and the two inside rails is the transmit and receive. I would take the interface apart and replace the USB connector. Maybe Radio Shack or another electronic shop would have the same USB connector. See:

Broken Hub

The plastic piece is kind of just a spacer - you could probably Crazy Glue it back in place (just a drop - even less). This might work if the contacts in that port are not messed up.

But you can get a new one for just a few bucks. See/get one here:

Or here:

I would recommend that you buy a self-powered (one that you plug in to a wall outlet) USB hub, because sometimes USB ports on a computer do not have enough power themselves to power a non-powered hub.

Good luck.

Broken black piece inside usb port

This is usually going to be a part replacement problem. the black piece is part of the connectors. and backs up or guides the connectors. you can go to your local computer parts store such as frys, or an electronics parts house. and buy the connectors unless it is one that is attached to the motherboard in the back of the computer. if this is the case and you do not have enough usb ports, then you have to get an external usb hub. usually a powered hub is best.

My MP3 USB is not recognized by my PC,

May be a bad USB cable. Check the connector on the end that plugs into the pc, something inside may be broken preventing the connection. Sometimes the flat plastic piece inside (white or black) breaks loose if you forced it into the usb port or felt resistance when inserting it. If it came with software, you may have to reload it especially if you are using Windows 98.

Broken USB connector

it depends if the port has come off with out damaging the board if its damaged the board its more harder to replace the port. sometimes you are luck and its just broken the slider as its tin base. and it can rip, but you cannot tell until its been opened and looked at.

Front usb port of xbox looks broken, unit does nothing now

Simple. Just solved it with advice from this site. If you see any of the gold prongs touching the side (or possibly each other) then find a thing tool and try to hook the gold prongs so they point direct upwards. how bad they get bent doesnt matter, just get them all standing up and not touching the sides. you probably cant use the port again but atleast it turns on.
