I've got a go720 that won't stay connected to power, the usb connection inside doesn't seem loose or anything, but unless the power cord is held to one side it just eventually disconnects.

I'm assuming that a solder connection inside is loose or broken. Has anyone experienced and/or repaired this?


thanks

Can be tricky - depends upon whether the pad has come loose from the board, or whether the USB socket leg has come loose from the pad. The former is tougher. The latter is a piece of cake to fix with even moderate soldering skills.
