How to replace usb ports on ps3? Answered

I had a ylod ps3(past warranty) and attempted to repair it using the ylod oven instructable. It worked, however the usb ports ended up melting during the process. This would not be a problem, as I do not use them much. Unfortunately, you have to have them to sync the controller though. Does anyone know how I can replace the usb ports, or just add more. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


have you find the anwser yet

that is some harsh damage, man. i dont even want to know how you turned your ps3 into a toaster. you should be able to remove them and solder a standard usb port in it's place. it shouldnt be too hard. good luck

Could you show us a picture


I will try to add one tomorrow.
