Ok, What you need todo, IF the internal circuitboard of the usb memory is still intact, you will need to solder the 4 usb connector pins onto the usb circuitboard of the usb memory.

This is not your device but you should get the idea, you need to solder those 4 connectors back into place, I marked them with red boxes, if the circuitboard is cracked or otherwise damaged, it may be best to give up. Or take it to a electronics repair man, but if the circuitboard is cracked and there are no good connection points the repair will be very difficult but not impossible.

you need to take the plastic cover off from the usb memory and inspect how the board is, you could even send me a picture here by using the attach picture button.

I bent my flash drive and now it don't work


in the end, there isnt much you can do to restore a flash drive, it's small memory blocks, which when bent are capable of cracking, losing all or most of the data stored in them, the rest of the data is corrupted and if your friend messed up sodering it back together (sounds like it SNAPPED) you're not fixing it, short of spending a small chunk of change (around $200) for a data recovery, which is not guaranteed to recover half, if any data. You're best bet unfortunately is likely to buy a new Flash Drive, I hope you didnt have anything vitally important on there... Taxes? School Project? Work reports? yikes if you do and my condolences.
Hope this helped!

Ink lights are not on error UO43


Perhaps one of the ink tanks is not snapped in properly. The cartridge lamps on this model glow red when they are properly seated/installed.

These little red lamps also flash codes:
Slow flash (approx. 3 second intervals) - ink low
Quick flash (every second) - ink cartridge empty

Travel Drive Broke


It depends on your skill level as to if it can be fixed or not. The data is most likely still safely stored on the flash chip inside the drive casing. However, the USB connector has been just ripped off. If you have any experience soldering it would be as simple as getting a replacement usb plug from an electronics store or cutting a cable you have and then soldering the USB connector back to the flash drive inside the casing. This is something than can be done at home or possible by a repair shop that does any type of soldering work(tv, radios, ect) Most computer repair shops will look at you silly if you ask them to solder a thumb drive back to life. I would not expect more than to be able to mount your drive and copy the data. Odds are after you cut it out of the casing it will never go back in correctly.

Good Luck
