Hi all,

Managed to break my connector, does anybody know where I can get a direct replacement for the PCB mounted connector from? It needs to have the same pin size and orientation and I can't find one anywhere!

Thanks,

Rob

I broke mine too on an Arnova 10 (first gen model), but it's the same casing design and same power connector.

 

I don't have the connector reference, but it was easy to find a replacement in an electronic shop. The only one they had a different mounting, so I had to solder wires out of the tablet, here are few pictures:[flagallery gid=8 name="Gallery"]

That's very helpful. I actually want to mount the new connector back on the board though so will remove the broken one and require an exact replacement so that it alignes with the holes in the board. Any ideas?

 

Just to add, I have 3 of these tablets that are broken so want to fix and sell them.

These were bought at auction as shop returns so they are not under warranty.

I may have to jump some wires off the PCB to a separate connector, then fix it to the inside of the case in line with the existing hole. This would be far stronger than the original!

In my case I couldn't return the product, the connector break because of my own fault.

Still I'd prefer other kind of connectors that are more resistant Wink

Rjben, sorry I don't have any exact reference for the connector, that's why I went shopping to find my 'equivalent'. I'll try to find the bill and the specs for the connector I bought (diameter...).

Hi rjben,

This happened to mine, the centre pin broke off in the connector. I live in the UK and had a real problem finding a replacement that would fit. I managed to find some eventually, just search for:

Technic TDC-022 1.3MM-PCB mount, power jack socket 10pcs on ebay

These are slightly different in that they have a round protusion on the end, but they fit the board perfectly. I made the hole in the casing slightly bigger with a craft knife to accomodate this and the end result was very neat and probably stronger than the original!

 

For a more exact connector search ebay for PJ039 or PJ26, I would have used these but they are all located in China and I did not want to wait for them to be posted to the UK Smile

 

If you need any tips on replacing the connector, I will be happy to help.

 

Good Luck!

 

Mobius.

Let us know how it goes and try to take pictures or film the soldering procedure, it could be useful for others.

The connector for £8.99 looks exactly the same as I used to repair my tablet.

I got 10 of these for £1.99 + 80p postage. The ebay item number is:

 

Item number: 390369715969

 

As i said in my previous post, these fit the board perfectly, but you may need to make the hole in the casing very slightly bigger with a craft knife or small file, so the connector is held firmly by the casing when you screw it back together. The finished repair is very neat and probably stronger than the original, plus I have 9 sparesSmile

When doing the repair, be very careful with the 2 ribbon cables from the screen, as if you break these they are not repairable. also I unsoldered the 3 battery wires one at a time and insulated them with tape, as where you are soldering the connector, the pads are connected to the battery and you could cause a short circuit with your soldering iron tip if you leave the battery connected.
