Yoga 3 11 USB 3.0 connector broken

2016-12-12, 20:58 PM

dear people,

 

I've bought a yoga 3 11 80J8 second hand. The device is in perfēct shape except one thing.

the USB 3.0 poort is physically broken, as in when you jiggel a usb 3.0 stick in it, it somethimes works.

And one of the usb 2 pins is broken off so that simply doesn't work.

 

so i want to replace the complete usb 3.0 port. I have looked everywhere, but i cannot find this specific connector.

lenovo only wants to replace the complete motherboard for 400 euro :(

 

dows anyone know what or where i can get thos connector? or has a broken yoga 3 11 from where i can buy your usb connector?

 

many thanx in advance,

Eric

Sorry, the only way is to replace the motherboard or have someone unsolder and resolder the USB3.0 port which is either way going to cost you some money. The last solution should probably cost you around 100$-150$ including shipping if you can find such a service. Which is still not guaranteed to help you.

Kind regards,
