Changing USB Type-C connector
My Hp Chromebook Type-C charger stopped working after a hard pull on the cable. I tore apart the connector and found out the cable just beneath the connector is damaged. I got a new connector but am confused which wire to connect where.
Charger cable has 3 wires (White, Blue, Black) and the connector has 4 connection pads (G, D+, D-, V). I checked voltage between all wires and got:
- White - Blue = 2.9V
- White - Black = 0V
- Black - Blue = 2.9V
Make matter even more confusing the original connector has nine pins (yes not eight), five pins on 'top' (A1, A4, A8, A9, A12) and four pins on the 'bottom' side (B1, B4, B9, B12). I believe A8 is extra and does not do anything but who knows...
If you understand this please help me determine which wire should be soldered on which pad.
Here is a related question I found with similar charger with similar configuration.
