Playbook motherboard replacement

Hi, my playbook micro usb port got broken and I would like to replace motherboard as I already detach it from the rest.

Where could I order this part?

Re: Playbook motherboard replacement

You will need to contact RIM to determine where to get spare parts. I would not have taken my device apart before trying other options first.. like returning it to the store or seeking an RMA. You will probably have to send the device to RIM for repairs anyway and you have voided the warranty.

Re: Playbook motherboard replacement

I know you can order spare parts for the PlayBook on the http://cnn.cn/ but I have not tried this Chinese website.

Re: Playbook motherboard replacement

when I see the prices for a replacement board for a BlackBerry smartphone, it is sometimes more expensive than a brand new PlayBook now!

so maybe buying a new PlayBook is the cheapest for you.

You could get a rapid (magnetic connector) charger and use wifi sharing to move/backup data. Then no need to use USB at all, unless ever you brick it
