Microsoft Surface Charging Port Replacement

Microsoft Surface Charging Port Replacement

15 - 30 minuti


Il Mio Problema

After checking the Microsoft website and finding out if I send in my tablet(in good shape) with $320 They will send me back a refurbished one. (EBay has them for $99.) I decided to take it apart what the heck it doesn't work anyway. The charger seemed to emit 12 volts. I ordered tools and a charging port from iFixit and about a week later I dug in to it.

La Mia Riparazione

The hardest part was getting the bezel off with spudger tools. But it came off with only a few scratches. I read somewhere all you needed to do was unplug the ribbon cable and plug it back in and the problem would be reset so with lots of light and a magnifier I did it( I'm an old fart). The reason I didn't replace the charging port was I had no T4 screwdrivers. The port was not the problem anyway.

Il Mio Consiglio

Don't be afraid to dig into it and possibly brake something. What the heck the thing doesn't work anyway.
