Re: ns-dv720pbl2 not charging through usb

right after posting this, i finagled the battery a bit and it finally came on. i dont have an sd card in so it wont record and the battery is at one bar. and now it recognizes it again.

 

so weird. i dunno if it's another loose connection somewhere between the usb port and the power supply or what. but it seems to be at least kind of working for now.

Re: ns-dv720pbl2 not charging through usb

today it's not coming on and, again, not responding to the usb connection. i even found a 5.1V 1A wall charger for it, but nothings happening. I bet if I take it apart, it'll start working once I wiggle some things around.

so very odd.

Hello diabetickoala,

Thank you for responding!

It does sound like there is a broken contact or a separated solder, that sometimes will touch, and then shift away.

Re: ns-dv720pbl2 not charging through usb

i messed with it again and the light came on. i tried to resolder the port again and realized that two of the pins were loose. when i removed the port to resituate it, the pins broke as i was putting them back in place. i'd like to try to replace the port, as they are inexpensive components. but i'm not sure what i need to get, since i've never done this and there seem to be several types (a type, B type, AB type).

i was looking at this. it looks like the port from the camera. can you confirm or give me a part number of the usb port from the camera?

Hello diabetickoala,

Thank you for responding!

Because all of our repair/warranty replacement are done by Geek Squad, they would be who you need to check with in terms of part info. You may be able to take the port to a electronics repair place and get a viable replacement piece.
