Hi Bonnie,

I'm afraid I don't understand your question. What "solder point" are you looking for? Maybe if we knew what you are trying to accomplish we might have a better idea of how to help.


@dadibrokeit i would like to repair the usb port of the gpd but I don't know how to repair it so I thought that there might be solder points but I'm not sure so I come here to ask if there are solder points

Hi Bonnie,

If I'm understanding you correctly, the micro USB port on your GPD xD is broken and you're wanting to replace it, is that right?

If that's the case, then there are several steps that need to be taken to accomplish that, assuming you are wanting to do this repair yourself.

First things first, you're going to need a replacement part. I've spent years sourcing electronic components so I know all the places to look and believe me, this is not the easy part. Generally you start out searching for the specific part you want, something like "GPD XD replacement USB charging port" or many variations on that. I had no luck whatsoever; there were a couple of people who talked on forums about having replaced the port, but only one gave any information about what part they bought and that was an eBay listing that no longer existed. So that was a bust.

Next, if you know where to look and what to look for, is to find a compatible replacement. I literally looked at hundreds of different connectors online, and to the best of my knowledge this one appears it will work. I can't guarantee it, but it's the closest I could find.


There were some others, but I'm guessing you don't want to buy 100 of them at a time.

Okay, next we need to know how to take your game console apart in order to do the repair. I didn't find any step by step iFixit-style guides to doing that, but there's a video that looks quite usable. The part you want that shows how to remove the motherboard from the case starts at about 4:20 into the video.

Now comes the challenging part if you're not somewhat experienced with soldering. You're going to have to unsolder the old port, clean up the board and solder in the new port. This particular port has four legs that go through holes in the circuit board. This provides an excellent electrical ground connection for the port as well as mechanically securing the port to the board so the connection stays in place despite being plugged and unplugged hundreds of times in its lifetime. Here are pictures with arrows pointing to these connections.

Basically, the first step is to use a solder vacuum or solder wick to remove as much solder as possible from the four legs so that they are no longer securing the pins to the circuit board.

In addition to the four mounting pins, there are also five electrical contacts that are soldered onto the circuit board that will need to be desoldered.

I'm sure you can go online and find dozens of videos about how to solder if need be, but here's one that's fairly relevant to what you'll need to do.

Hopefully that's everything you need to know in order to get your xD running again. Good luck and let us know how it goes!
