Simon Smart: Awh mann. Followed this to the letter but on my version the volume rocker doesn't detach. Fixed the USB but broke the volume. Nightmare! Warning if you don't have his version of the phone.
Tyas Tatipata: Thank you, it worked out perfectly for me. But why remove the motherboard? Only to minimise the risk of damaging it? I just replaced the part without removing the motherboard - some extra care is needed - however, it worked out fine.
Ekon32: does this work with sgh t 989. someone on another site said the part is soldered and cannot be eaasily removed by regular user.
wednesdayz and weekendz: thanks very much man, i thought i was going to have to get a new phone! your a ledgend :D
Ajay Jassi: does this also repair the main mic on the S2?
Jon G: Who can help me!
My samsung galaxy s2 motherboard is broken, i know this is probably a stupid question but is there anyway of getting my files without having to turn the phone on and also if i change motherboard will i loose data
Sean Prescott: You can't change anything on the motherboard to fix the problem, you either need to get a new motherboard or get a new phone
Nick Russell: it works! Found there are 2 double sided adhesive strips under the USB PCB with care they can be peeled off the old pcb and re-used. Also the volume and on/off switches have double sided adhesive behind them so take care to release them before lifting the motherboard to avoid damaging their respsective flexible pcbs. same comment re disassembly: you only need to lift the motherboard enough to remove/replace the usb port.
D Dong: cool, so you actually replace with a new usb port? Why a lot of Samsung machine has USB port problem. stup
jonathan david: because the left side of the USB port goes below the motherboard.
I actually managed to replace the USB port without fully removing the motherboard. I did remove all screws and unplugged all connectors, however I managed to replace the part just by slightly lifting the motherboard.
jonathan david: Thanks you for that video, I just replaced my USB port.
Those of you that are opening their device for the first time, notice that the motherboard is glued at 2 points that should be carefully detached when removing it. This is not shown at the video (probably because the device shown here was fixed several times).
However, these 2 points are marked by red arrows at 1:45
SoNNy X: This is the SHW-M250S [ Galaxy S2 Korean Version ]
I have this phone too and i have a problem. I can't charge it. It's not from the usb port flex cable. It's from the motherboard. Can somebody told me what should i change on the motherboard?
Sam Lyle: I saw this video, saw a charger port assembly at ebay, read the comments, made sure that I was getting the right version, bought it for $16, installed it using this video, it works perfectly. Excellent video. Thanks.
tardhat: I understand removing the mobo, but stop there. there is no need to pull the camera off of the mobo or pull the speaker or anything else beyond the antenna (which you could get away with being connected if you don't manhandle everything).
Good video though.
Lisandro Peña: I have a SGH-T989d(Samsung Galaxy S2 X). what charging port flex cable do i need for this phone. I have found for the SGH-T989 but not sure if its the same
theo001dore: Will a charging port for I9100 work on the GT-I9100? I'm not too knowledgable about this product, so your insight will help me greatly.
Sebastian Lara: really helpful! thank you!
devildude93: Just getting the case off was a major effort haha. Managed to sort things, phone is charging as we speak. Cheers
Vishnu Amarnath: Tried exactly as shown in your video and changed the port without any issues... Thanks...
KillWithFire12: You sir, got a crappy taste in music >_>
Alexis Hidalgo: this is just to show the complete dissasembly for this model, so this video can be used for both things.
Houssam Hammett: what's the name of the first song
Travis Cannon: I understand you must remove the mobo to get to the card you want to replace, but why risk damage to the cameras by taking them off? If the cameras come off attached to the mobo, could we not just remove the mobo to get to the USB charge port?
Arkronis80: As you're so observant, you'd have realised the answer for yourself.
The mainboard of the phone sits right on top of part of the USB/Charger module - so its necessary to remove the MB to be able to free it at all in order to replace it.
Pete20030: This video made it very easy to replace my USB port. Thank you!
bobbybrooner: What annoying music, I have to watch this in mute!
smakibbfbsmakibbfb: I changed the USB ribbon on my Galaxy s2 i1900 using this video, absolutely no problems at all, just take it slowly using the correct tools. I did not need to take the motherboard all the way out, I removed the screws and gently moved it to one side, result!. Thanks very much for this helpful video.
JamesJon1187: THe Motherboard is the one thing he removed that needed to be. It covers the usb unit's ribbon cable.
RustyFerretStudios: Ok then that makes a bit more sense then.
SirChocolateElephant: The song is "They'll Know We are Christians."
I tried to find the artist in this video, but there are so many. The closest one I found to the video is by Jars of Clay. Goodlucks!
SirChocolateElephant: The charge/usb port has a ribbon at the end of it. It goes under and then over the part of the motherboard it clips onto.
Look at 1:54 for a better view. He takes off the connection but the black-ribbon part is still under the green board. So, if you pop off the clip, you'll still have to lift off the motherboard to take the ribbon out from underneath it.
auR3lie94: Thanks for the video. Does the port i9100 works as fine for the Samsung Galaxy S2 by Tmobile SGH T989 ?
syfygirl1994: why not just replace the usb flex cable
gesner melo: Hello friend, I really liked this video lesson, mainly because it is a device like mine. I need to change Port USB Connector Flex Cable SHW-M250S like this presented in this video. Can you tell me where to buy it. Here in Brazil I do not find this product. thank you
Chilli P: Lol your "case opening tool" looks suspiciously identical to a guitar pick. Luckily I have about a hundred of those lying about.
Chilli P: Worst music ever. Useful video however. Mixed feelings about the whole affair...
Itsafishable: no, if you open up a i777 you will see many components in the phone actually say i9100 on them, one part being the charging port. I bought mine from the user Buybuysky Product name: Dock Connector Charging Port Ribbon Flex Cable For Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100+Tools
Georges Juteau: where can i have pieces to repair my samsung galaxy s2 model sgh i757m? thanks
SUPERTEENA: Where did you find the parts for this particular phone? i can't find it anywhere
SUPERTEENA: Do you know where you can buy the cable for the SHW m250s model?
alvinshcn: is i777 charging port different from i9100? where did you buy it? thanks.
Omardz89100: Hi please say to people remove sound button... i broke it... Thanks
Niko Darkly: I've tried to search for the artist that sings the Cristian song in this video, but I can't find the one that you have in this video that sings the song. Can you please tell me the artist that sings this version? :/
KRAMRENKA: freaking music SUCKS ANUS HOLE
StealthyMonk: helpful video, well made. Thanks for sharing this
RobertBarnett09: Question... is this charging port replacement part for all Galaxy S2's the same?
Like T-Mobile, AT&T, Straight Talk... etc.
1kparmar: Annoying music in the background. It there replacement sound we can purchase for this.
Vergasoz AyDAWG: im done with samsung and their cheap ass products
Itsafishable: Just did it on my sgh-i77 I got from att and there is no need to remove motherboard completely, it is fairly easy if you just tilt it and slide the ribbon cable out from under it.
