What causes the 3DS or 3DS XL charging port fault?

The most common problem that we see is accidental damage. Using the 3DS or 3DS XL whilst it is plugged into the charger can cause the port to be jarred or wiggled around and either bend the pins in the port or lift its connections from the motherboard.  

How do we repair the 3DS XL charging port?

The first thing we do before any repair is test the 3DS XL to confirm the fault. Most of the time, just a visual inspection can confirm that the port is damaged. 

We then have to take the back panel off the 3DS or 3DS XL to gain access to the motherboard. We then carefully desolder the old port and inspect the solder pads. If the console has been very heavily handled it can damage the solder pads on the motherboard which could prevent a successful repair. This is a rare occurance though.

Once the solder pads are cleaned up, we solder down a new port. We then test the strength and integrity of the solder connections and reassemble the unit.

The 3DS or 3DS XL then goes to our testing bench where we test all repairs prior to dispatch
