Thread: Front panel USB header replacement

  1. #1

    Default Front panel USB header replacement

    Hi guys, new here, just registered.
    Having problem with front panel I/O port, the one that comes with 2 USB ports with headphone out & mic in. Although the audio headers work fine, but those 2 USB ports worn out after prolonged use. As we all know, these panel comes with casing but I'm wondering how to replace these in need such as mine. The last time workaround was to buy a (old) whole casing . This time I need to find something else. Have you guys seen anyone selling spare "front" header in Dhaka?

    I know some alternatives to this such as USB extension cable, HUB, back panel header. But still, I need my front panel USB ports. Any help for this poor man will be appreciated!





    Thanks

    If your front panel header looks like this Click image for larger version.

ID:	34028, you can try this as a last resort: Open the front panel of the casing, remove the header PCB containing the usb and audio jacks, de solder the USB ports from the pcb, replace and re solder them with good usb ports. I have found exact same USB ports like the ones generally used in these headers at an electronics shop in Khulna, I guess they can easily be found on other places too.

    But still, you would need to solder yourself or find a friend who can solder. I don't think any repair shop will take this kind of small task.

    These are found in the old computer market which is situated at the opposite side of multiplan center. Last time (1 years ago) I bought those for 30~50 taka. The shopkeepers might ask much more but you'll get it bellow 50 taka if you bargain.

    Bring your one when you get there, to maintain exact measurement as those front panel units vary in sizes.
    If you are unable to find the size that match your one or if you are handy with soldering iron, do what @aaz_swapnil suggested.
