Micro USB port is loose
« on: January 09, 2013, 03:43:58 PM »
So my usb port has been getting worse and worse.  I would have to wiggle it just so to get the thing to charge.  Now it's completely dead and I can't seem to charge it at all.  What are my options?  Anyone know when I can get a pogo pin dock?

Thanks

I would get it repaired.

Pogo pin ASUS docking station ($40) is suppose to ship sometime in January but they keep pushing back the date so I would not hold my breath.  In any case, you can NOT send data back and forth from the pogo pins on the N7, only with the USB (or wireless).

POGO is a NOGO. As far as I know, not available yet unless you are a do it yourselfer. I agree with Trout. Get it repaired. Even with a pogo you still are missing a crucial hardware option.

I pulled off the back with a guitar pick to check my usb. It has far more strain relief than other tablets, a shield is screwed down instead of relying on the solder joints alone. So I didn't add epoxy this time. The contacts might get dirty, some electronics non lubricating cleaner might help, spray the otg jack and insert it a few times. If the jack is broken, I would send it in for repair.

Do you use your charging cable for any other devices? Just curious... I have seen in the past that cables used on different devices can damage the cable. Once the cable is damaged, it starts to damage the devices...
