ThinkPad x250 USB connector replacement

Hi!

 

I've broken my laptop's USB connector (one on the right). Is it posible to buy replacement anywhere? Tried official distribution and service channels in Europe, looked at ebay, aliexpress, no results.

Re: ThinkPad x250 USB connector replacement

Hi sasek,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

As I understand that you have query regarding Right side USB connector replacement for your ThinkPad x250

The USB ports are connected directly to the Motherboard, there is no subcard for that.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Re: ThinkPad Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 20FB004JUS USB connector replacement

I have a similar problem with another model of the ThinkPad.  I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 20FB004JUS with a broken USB right side port.  Can this port be repaired or replaced?

 

Thank You

Re: ThinkPad Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 20FB004JUS USB connector replacement

Sorry to revive an old thread--it maybe be better to start a new one, but maybe not. Hopefully those who have asked above will have an answer.

 

I too have just noticed my 1 USB connector is broke on my X220. The little plastic slab, which the contacts rests against broke and I did not notice it. I inserted a USB stick and squashed the left contact back. I tried to straighten it and it came off the motherboard--I see the end that was soldered.

 

Is there a way to replace this connector by a US service center, or does the whole motherboard need to be replaced? Any idea of cost and time it takes?

If this is something a local computer tech can do, where can I buy a replacement connector?

Maybe an ethernet to usb adaptor?

Could one of the 1 male to 3 female USB hubs work with with one of the USB connectors?

Could someone point to the instructions on how to remove the motherboard please.

Thanks,

Ron
