Tutorial for changing usb cable?


#1

you mean you want to desolder or cut the cable that is on the pcb and just put another one (that works) on the pcb as a replacement?


#3

Yes, I need to know where to buy a replacement ps3 usb cable, and I’m guessing I have to solder it back?

PS3 USB cables are the same as any other USB cable. You could take a cable from a keyboard and it would be the same. USB cables are color-coded. I have faith that you can figure it out yourself.

(You can ignore “shielded ground” if there is one.)

USB is USB.
Black (Ground) Red (VCC) Green and White (Data +/-).
Any USB cable will do, cut it, strip the wires, and solder them to where the old cable was.


#6

You just buy any USB cable with at least one USB A end.
That is all.

You know how to solder already.
So all that is done for you.

Is there any difference between the PS3 and XBOX cable?


#8

The Xbox 360 USB cables has that break-away connector near the USB end of the cable, it has no impact over performance of the cable. It just extra.
