chunkylover510727: You are AWESOME!!! This worked!!! I didnt even break the phone or
anything. Great video!!! Thanks so much for taking the time to video &
post this! First time i ever got to use a guitar pic.
Being able to fix my phone on my own makes me believe in me. :)
jhb3043: Great video!
My USB port broke on me 11 months after getting my VZW Note 2 last March.
It was running fine for me and still on Android 4.1.3,which I still wanted
to hang on to.
Ended up getting the free replacement from VZW since I was still covered
under the 12 month manufacturer's warranty and they gave me a refurbished
Note 2 running 4.3.
And now it's giving me the "Damaged SD Card" error message.
If I saw your video back then, I would've just bought the Samsung spare
battery and charger combo while waiting for the USB parts to arrive and
then attempt repair.
Well made video! 👍
jxsilicon9: Thanks for the tutorial. It was easy and fixed my usb problems
Greg Turner: This worked !!!Part cost me $8.95 with shipping. Verizon wanted to ship it
out and charge me $50 top look at it. A 3rd party repair shop was going to
charge me $58. The ENTIRE process took me 10minutes. Toughest part is
separating the outer rim/shell.
Ski Bunny: This worked! My phone is back to normal! Thank you for the great video and
tip about the guitar pick :)
Jay LMan: So a couple of weeks ago I dropped my verizon samsung galaxy note 2 in
water. Used rice to absorb water and my device still works fine, except it
appears that my phone thinks that the battery temperature is too low and
cannot charge or use flash. These are the TWO problems I have been
encountering since my phone fell in water: 1) Phone cannot charge battery.
When plugged into charger, it says "charging paused, battery temperature
too low." Appears that phone reads battery at at 32 degrees fahrenheit,
even after using 2 different batteries - Fortunately, I have an old note 2
with a broken screen and a spare battery. In order to charge my battery I
have to keep swapping the two batteries between the non-charging phone and
the broken screen phone. 2) Cannot use the flash on regular camera because
of "battery temperature.: However, the flash works fine with all others
apps that use the flash, besides the sotck camera app.
My question is, do you think that this will fix the problems I am having?
It is definitely not a battery problem, even though the phone is saying
that it is.
Also, is this the right piece needed to replace the charging port with a
samsung galaxy 2 for verizon? Should I buy any specific tools?
I ran out of replacement phones for my insurance, and definitly cannot
affor da new phone right now. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!!
Jason Poole: Instructions are great. Only thing it neglected to mention was to keep the
plastic tool / guitar pick straight, rather than running it on an angle. It
seems to chip away at the paint if you run it on an angle. No major damage,
but it doesn't look great.
Emrah Tyson: Really nice. I have the same problem with my galaxy note (1) ? Can i
replace my USB port on my Galaxy Note like this?
Libelula Alulebil: thanks.. I just fixed my phone :)
James Crombie: Great video mate cheers
Jonathon Green: Thanks! It worked.
JJTOP SMILE: what size phillips head was that
Franklin Shaffer: Don't do it!!! You'll crack your screen, and the screen is connected to the
phone with a ribbon. The video doesn't show that. I'm a mechanical
engineer and I'm pretty good at these things, but don't try it unless you
want to replace your entire phone!
Brian Dean: Thanks for the help! Fixed my note 2 and saved a bunch of money.
Simon Burghard: Cannot thank you enough for this guide. Turned my phone from a brick into a
fully functioning device. I'll be less careless in future knowing how
sensitive these phones are to moisture damage.
fluknick: Disassembled, replaced, reassembled, in less than 10 minutes- thanks to
this great tutorial !!
Always great things, from GalaxyNote2Root !!
Thanks, brutha man :P
Teh Aesthetic: Thank you!!!!!!!
callum wood: EPIC thank you, you have saved me a fair bit of cash and hassle. Keep up
the good work and thank you again.
Faizal Umer: I have an N7105 model of samsung note 2. Do you think i could use the USB
port of the N7100 model to replace the one on a N7105?
oaklandzev: Great video! I successfully replaced the USB module thanks to this video.
Some suggestions if you plan to try this. I had a toolkit with a "plastic
tool" - skip it and use a guitar pick. The pick is much sturdier and will
work much better.
As in the video, I had to open and close about 10 times before everything
worked properly. Areas to keep an eye on in addition to the wires and
connectors that pop open: the power button fell off on mine. If yours does
too, note that it is oriented in one direction - look carefully - and hold
it in place from the outside with some tape. Also, there are some round
black items (I don't know what to call them) that fit into some holes in
the cover, they may fall out. Also, there is some rubber around the
headphone jack that came loose on mine, probably got loosened by the pick.
Use a small flat head screwdriver to put it back in place. At one point the
home, back and settings soft buttons on the bottom stopped working, and I
thought I'd killed my phone. Turns out that one of the wire connections
(long white wire on the right) wasn't fully connected. When I pushed it
tightly into place that fixed it.
Hope this helps. Be patient and keep at it until it all works.
kaptenrobert: I just replaced my usb port following this guide, with success. The phone
now charges, but in the proccess of doing this my screen stopped working.
The first time I try to turn it on, I see the screen flicker for a fraction
of a second then it goes to black. The screen is still sensitive to
touching since it makes sounds when i tap it. I suspect the connector
wasn't quite on properly when I first tried to boot it up after opening the
Do you think my screen is broken? Do you have any ideas I could try to get
it working again? I've made sure all connectors are properly attached.
Haoming Qiu: my charge port was not working consistently and making weird noises. I
ordered a part from Amazon.com and watched this video to replace the USB
port. Now everything works fine. Thanks!
Albert Arriola: I have this problem with my NOTE 1... not sure whether to try and fix it
myself or buy a wall charger because I'm lazy.
AnnoyingOldMan: Thanks a lot m8!
Chris Seems: Thank you for this instruction video. I had no idea that the micro USB jack
was so easy to replace until you showed me how it's done. Your instructions
were good enough that I feel confident enough to order a usb flex cable for
my Note 2. Thanks again.
Carlos Nevada: Replaced the USB via this excellent video. Ordered parts from our friends
in China. Came complete with the tiny tools. Works like a charm. Thank

this... Also before the problems started I tried to root, which didn't work
David McDonald: I did this and now my screen doesn't show up (but I can hear the phone turn
on and everything) :( PLEASE HELP!
Henry May: Worked perfectly. Thank you.
DaMarcus Bell: Wow my wife is amazing , she was able to connect the piece back to the blue
wire :-) I would still like to know what that wire is called in case I drop
my phone and find that it does not charge anymore.
Miss Trina Zamora: Where can I purchase this peace?
DaMarcus Bell: Need help!!! While following the steps to fix my USB port on my galaxy note
2 I was able to make it to the part where you unplug the very tiny gold
piece toward the bottom of the phone. Here lies the problem because when I
attempted to remove it the tiny gold piece came apart from the blue cable
it was connected to. I'm currently trying to reconnect it but I'm not
having much luck. Any suggestions? Should I order another blue cable?
Problem here is that I don't know what the blue cable is called. Please

Claire S: huge help! Thank you, worked perfect!
Steve Heller: my note 2 usb port started getting hot while charging in the car, and then
