Introduzione

If any of the three ports on your JBL Charge 3 (AUX, USB, charging) are not functioning, they may need replacing. If you wish to replace only one of the ports rather than the whole assembly, you will need to know how to solder. Follow iFixit's Soldering Guide to learn more.

  1. Turn your speaker upside down and insert the plastic opening tool vertically into the slit in the front cover. Slowly pull the plastic opening tool outward to remove the four clips holding the covering in place. Repeat this process for all four edges of the front cover.
    • Turn your speaker upside down and insert the plastic opening tool vertically into the slit in the front cover.

    • Slowly pull the plastic opening tool outward to remove the four clips holding the covering in place.

    • Repeat this process for all four edges of the front cover.

    Sometimes disassemblers forget that the first time they disassembled the item it didn’t want to give up easily: I didn’t like the forces I was having to apply at all, so I switched to two plastic prying tools per “corner” and one in-between them (total 5, you could use plectrums…) before I was happy the the forces were low enough not to break anything.

    There appears to be different versions of the Charge 3. If you find it difficult to pry open a second side the two small screws mentioned by Jason will need to be removed but it also indicates that there will be some additional changes to this tear down that I will try to convey in the comments as well.

    Sadly I damaged the latches on my charge 3. There was more to it than just prying the front cover up. First, there is a small latch on both sides that you need to push down before pulling the front cover towards you that release the clips holding the front cover in place. Pull only slightly forward because… Second, in the front cover there are 6 circular notches connected to the front cover in tue four corners including the middle corners, you need to squeeze the front cover a little bit gently removing the notches so they dont break (like mine did).

    Definitely had to watch about 10 videos and still couldn’t get it to pop out easily.. Took a look at the first picture in the next step and really took note of where the little hole that lets you through to push down the tab is. Once I took a look at that and combined the techniques I’d seen in some of the videos it finally popped off easily. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7i0_nD9... I only watched the first minute of this video but it helped a good bit if anyone else is having trouble.

  2. Pull apart your cover gently from both sides and remove it from the speaker housing.
    • Pull apart your cover gently from both sides and remove it from the speaker housing.

    • The inside of the front cover has holes that must match with their corresponding pins on the speaker housing for proper reassembly.

    • Removing the Front Cover does not affect the waterproof seals of the device. However, removing any further disassembly of your speaker will require removing waterproof seals and gaskets. Your device may no longer be waterproof after these have been altered.

    Include dissembling the plastic cover? cover?

    @KanGoon Yes, on mine it took the removal of 6 (reasonably obvious) screws to remove that. I’ll try to insert a photo when I reassemble…

    and then wiggle it directly (almost radially from the cylinder) out until you see the cables shown in the next step.

    Be careful not to damage the plastic gasket as you pull it out,

    there’s not much room to get you fingers in. Again I used prying tools to help me get the two connectors off the PCB

Hi,

the pinout for the micro-usb socket, looking from the top side (3.5mm audio socket is on my left and USB port is on my right):

1. Most left line, line #1 on the micro-usb connector is GND. Goes to the pin #5 (also connected to #6 and #7) of the large 11pin connector labeled J602.

2. Line #2 on the micro-usb connector is ID which is connected to the GND - pin #5 (also connected to #6 and #7) of the large 11pin connector labeled J602.

3. Line #3 on the micro-usb connector is DATA +, which goes to pin #4 of the large 11pin connector labeled J602.

4. Line #4 on the micro-usb connector is DATA -, which goes to pin #3 of the large 11pin connector labeled J602.

5. Line #5 (most right) on the micro-usb connector is VCC/+5V, which goes to pin #1 (also connected to #2) of the large 11pin connector labeled J602.

Hi,

for anyone interested - we are offering the micro-usb socket replacement service for JBL Charge 3.

Habe heute die SMD Micro USB Ladebuchse ausgetauscht. Wie man diese Reparatur in 15min erledigen will ist mir ein Rätzel. Und einfach eine THT und SMD Buchse umlöten, benötigt wirklich Fachwissen und die nötigen Lötskills. Eher 30 bis 45 minuten mit dem richtigen Werkzeug und Microskop!
