Must be replaced - taking player apart will cause damage, so usb port cannot be repaired/replaced (plus specific components are not orderable).

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.

One of my pins was bent I straightened it out and it worked. Now someone bent it again and I can't get it to work at all. I see the light blink, but the pc don't recongnize it or even say that it sees it.

Hi as you mentioned that the pin bent again,so make the pin straight and if you've done that and it's still not working, double check your communication cable to make sure it's properly connected on both ends, otherwise you may need to try a different USB cable (I'm guessing that's what it uses to connect to the computer) to see if that may be the problem.

Best of luck.

HDMI port on xbox 360 has bent pins

Bent pins are a tough problem. In a lot of cases when you try to straighten them they break off. The best system to try is with very small needle nose pliers. Gently grasp each bent pin and bend. They don’t have to be perfect but close. Work on one at a time and work slowly. Still it is just a chance it will not break. Good Luck.

If the Jumper setting is "Low-speed Data" (JP2006
jumpered), this port is usable in the AUDIO
(300~3000 Hz) range.
If the jumper setting is "HI-speed Data" (JP2005
jumpered), this port is usable for 9600 bps DATA
communications, because the filter and limiter are
not engaged in the Audio line.
Pin 14: DC OUT

Switched 13.8V output for supplying power to
an accessory (jumper JP2008).
Switched and regulated DC 5.0V output for
supplying power to an accessory (jumper

Controller port usb pins are bent

is it in the warrinty / do they cover it

4 port belkin kvm

The things that usually go wrong with KVMs are bent connector pins (usually mouse or keyboard) or the switch itself. Inspect the mouse connector for bent or corroded pins. They are easy to bend and straighten, however, they will eventually break off if you do it often enough. If you find one that is bent the safest way to straighten it is by using a .7 diameter mechanical pencil. Remove the lead, and work the pin carefully into the pencil barrel. Once you have the pin inside the pencil gently straighten it by moving the pencil vertical. If it?s not a bent or corroded pin there isn't a whole lot else you can do other than try to get a warranty replacement or if its expensive enough, repaired.
