Anyone Have Experience with Dell's Streak 7 in Terms of Power Port Replacement?
I got a Dell Streak 7 off craigslist for $25 knowing it would not power up. These things are notorious in terms of Dell's proprietary 30 pin power connector going bad. I've found an article or two about replacing it with a standard Micro-USB adapter. This would require removal of the 30 pin connector, a gluing in of the Micro-USB port, and soldering four small wires to four connection ports on the Streak's PCB. My soldering skills are non-existent.
What I want to know is anyone willing to experiment that has the necessary skills? I'd be willing to cover shipping to and back, but let's be honest: early 2011 tech, I'd not want to pay anything exorbitant to get the job done (about $25). Any takers? Article I am referring to:
