    Do you have a very steady hand? and a very small soldering iron?

    solder or see if you can use a heat gun. You can get the solder hot and reset the usb port. I used to do it with phones all the time

    Looks possible. any chance of a pic of the other side of the plug ?. Be better to desolder the contacts 1st too. If the pins have snapped partly off i'd likly use a strand or piece of wire for each contact. then solder the four legs back on the board.

    I would say i have a pretty steady hand, i tried to solder it back on but the usb pics are not making good contact. The remote shows it is connected but wont receive the update.
