Noticeable "wiggle" in Neutrik USB port


#1

For the longest time, the B side of my Neutrik USB port would display this wiggle when a USB cable is plugged in. For a while I thought it was normal, but recently, the stick has been disconnecting with the slightest movement of the USB cable. I tested the stick, and it is definitely the port. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if anyone has had any luck stabilizing the port while a cable is plugged in. Thanks

I bet the little black stabilizer piece fell out. It seems to be pretty common.

You could try the Neutrik Boot USB Cable Mod or start with one of the (pricey) NKUSB cables.

I think this happened to me a few times, too.

Can’t seem to find a supplier for NKUSB cables in Ireland though.
