Default Mini USB Slot Repairable?

Please Login to Remove!

On my 8100 my slot stopped working and I'm unable to charge my battery on my phone. I believe it was knocked out of place. Is there a way I can repair this myself or am I gonna have to send it back to BB?

None of us have any idea how skilled you are with electronics repair, so we can't possibly tell you if its something within your skillset.

It's most likely not something the average user could do on their own.
You'd need to source the parts then get a instructions for the repair.

For the everyday Joe, it's probably best to send it to a repair shop.
