Well there are 2 other ports on the 360. two in front and one in back. you could buy a powered splitter to run more than two usb devices on the same hub.

A USB port in the Front I/o ports need to be replaced with new


First off, you need the model number of the TOWER that you are trying to replace the FRONTSIDE USB ports. Go to E-bay or Amazon and see what they\'ve got for THAT particular model.

HP Desktop Modem broken ethernet port


Try to load the latest driver, you can get that from HP under your computer. If that does not fix it then go buy a cheap USB Ethernet adaptor from Amazon or BestBuy, plug it in to a spare USB port and follow the directions for the adaptor with your Ethernet cable plugged into the new adaptor.

That is it, you have bypassed the bad Ethernet power and can forget about it (they can't be fixed), you should be good to go.

If you don't want to try the driver, then just get a new adaptor and that will bypass the internal adaptor.

Good Luck

In the back of the printer, I broke the printer plug in port. I accidently pulled the wire and it broke the connector area on the printer. Does anyone know if this can be fixed? Alternatively, can I...


Usually the printers have only one USB port. If you had broke it, then it can be replaced (if mainboard is NOT DAMAGED). USB port is very cheep but you will need tools and skills to replace it. There is only USB input port(from flash memory stick) in front of the printer
good luck

I cant get a connection with the xbox and the standard controller


The usb ports are soldered onto the mainboard and would require quite a bit of technical knowlege to replace. You are stuck with wireless controllers and batteries. There are charging stations for xbox 360 controllers on ebay. Most 360's have a USB port on the back above the network port. You could charge with that one. Good Luck

The prongs on the USB connector broke off. Do we need to replace a board and if so how do we do so?


You can buy new connector and replace broken one. You need skill at soldering and of course have to open the unit to access the broken connector.

The camera has to plugged into a usb 1.1 port, it will not work with a usb 2.0 port. Try using the additional usb ports on a monitor or keyboard. Otherwise you will need to use a usb 1.1 Hub.

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.

My xbox won't turn on


hey guys i was freakin out because i had that same problem.  i didnt want to pay an extra 1000$ just because the stupid repair guys wouldnt tell me the answer.  So look inside your broken usb port, there should be like golden prongs in there.  if they are bent, straighten them and you can turn your xbox back on.  Now this might not be the case with you, but that is how i just solved my problem.  if you have any questions ill try to keep posted and see if i can help further. also you can get me at my gamertag for xbox live.  its volcomxskater37

Broken Prong inside connector for mouse


If the ps2 port on the main board is broken you will need to replace the board. If this is the case and your computer has usb ports on it just go out and buy a usb mouse.

 

If the part that is broken is from the mouse by using tweezers try to gently remove the broken part from the board. if unsuccessful use the usb port with a usb mouse.
