Garmin 2610 USB port repair
My 2610 stopped connecting to the pc the other day.
The mini usb connector on the back was feeling loose so I took the unit apart for a closer look.
-Removed single screw for mtg bracket to swing it out of the way
-removed CF card - one of the screws is behind it
-loosened 6 screws holding case together
-gently pried cases apart
-removed 2 screws for little circuit board holding the mini usb connector to case - port solder joint was broken
-used little razor blade to gently clean away the loose solder fragments and tweak the contacts for proper alignment.
More to come with some pics....
