Usb downloading connector

The connection for plugging in the usb cable is very wobbly and doesnot work. I have to use an external downloader for getting my photos onto the pc. Can I take apart the camera to get to the plug to repair or tighten to fix it? How do I do it?

    I have also similar problem during 2 years.

    I brought the the Nikon 4500 camera to reparator in my home country Finland.

    He told that the connector is very small and difficult to mold back.

    He thougt that its's also cheaper to buy a separate card reader for data loads.

    I bought an USB card loader with 20 Euros from net shop.

    When I now need to transfer pictures to my PC, then I must take the SC memory card of the camera and put it into card reader.

    It's working although I would more like transfer the pictures via cable without taking the card away from the camera.

The best way to get images into your computer is by an external USB card reader. they are quite cheap and save a lot of wear and tear on the batteries of the camera

Due to their size digital cameras are very delicate, and it's components are very small. from this reason, opening the camera and messing with one part of it, can easily create greater damage if you are not careful enough or not 100% sure of what you are doing. if you are sure that the problem is an outcome of loose connection, and you have a clue about taking electric devices apart, i think it shouldn't be to complicated to tighten up some random screw, but on the other hand i dont know this specific model so i cannot tell you with 100% certinty. anyways, taking this to repair should cost you next to nothing, in case this is the problem, and if problem is somewhere else, i doubt if you can take care of it by yourself, so unless you are handy with these kind of stuff, you got nothing to gain by fixing it by yourself.

External hard drive 3,5" few months it was working properly, and it says usb device not recognized and it doesnot show up. please for solution

Hello sir/ma'am, hi, most likely you have cable problems, check and see if you can find another cable. The cable is the USB data cable, that connects from your PC to the external hard drive.
Please also check if your USB port is working fine, just simply plug in a thumb drive to confirm.
If its not the cable, its the external hard drive. Usually, the red light appears or the device is reading the drive continuously with no action. let me know your progress.

I recently purchased an external hard drive, and how do connect it to my computer.

External Hard Drive is mostly of the USB interfacing type. If urs one is the same, then it is just as simple as plugging in a pen drive in the USB port. If it has external power supplies then u can easily figure out how to connect. There are two parts in the power supply (if external power supply cable is provided), 3-pin main power supply connector and other is the adapter which goes to the external hard drive.plug in the other end of the adapter into the hard drive (there is a hole in it). connect the main power cable to the adapter extension. now for the usb Hard Drive, connect the USB cable to the USB port of the computer. Switch on the power supply to the Hard drive and u r ready to use ur brand new External Hard Drive. If it is a Firewire interfacing one then u may need to open the CPU box, and then connect the firewire connector on to the motherboard firewire port. It is easy to identify, it is a red colored port/connector.

Cannot download music from my pc to lg cell phone

Lg is a difficult cell. Check if you got the correct cable for correct cell, Check inside the connector where you plug the cable in if you didn't damage some connector pins, because some people sells cables that does not work on lg cell and damage the conector pins when you plug it in. Ps Did you loud the drivers for your cable, and is it usb or serial cable.
