Wacom loose plug repair

By October 1, 2011 Photos

So once again my damn overpriced tablet broke down… the ridiculous usb plug issue.

This time the lead just wouldn’t stick to the circuit board anymore with my primitive tools… so i went to the local electronics store expert … they gave it a look and told me that its more reasonable to buy a new one, repairs would take too long time… Challenge accepted!! In last resort, i removed the plug completely, traced the circuit to its source and soldered it there directly… if you have a similar issue then you can use the photos for reference (it was hell of mess figuring out the colors) orange one is not from the wire btw, i used it to connect the 2 sides as the plug used to do… maybe theire still connected on the circuit board through some paths but just in case… everything works perfect now :)
