What causes a PS5 USB port fault?
The most common reason we hear is that the PS5 has been dropped or knocked while plugged in. This causes the USB cable to yank out and physically damage the port. It can also happen while plugging in the cable. The ports are quite delicate so if the USB cable isn’t plugged in carefully to the PS5 it can cause damage.
How do we repair a PS5 USB port fault?
To repair this fault we need to carefully strip the console down to the motherboard. From there we desolder the old USB port. If the original port is really badly yanked this can cause damage to the motherboard and in some circumstances could be beyond repair (although that is very rarely the case).
Once we have cleaned up the board and prepped the solder pads for the new port we solder the new USB port to the PS5. We reassemble the console and it goes down to our testing bench where all consoles are tested for at least 4 hours.
