Underslung USB A socket - Where to buy
« on: October 09, 2019, 12:59:07 pm »
Hi

Currently attempting to repair a broken USB port on an MSI 'Gaming' laptop.  The broken part is a USB A, 90 degree, through hole mount, socket (female) but it is fitted on the underside of the circuit board.  We have been looking all morning (Farnell, RS, e-bay) but can only find the common or garden 'top side' variety.

Can anyone help with a possible supplier and part number?  I am in the UK.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the response

Example of the common 'top side' variety.

One of those with the pins and PCB mounting inverted 180 degrees.

A photo of the broken part would not be very informative - It is identical to the part I have listed, except the plastic bar which keys the orientation is no longer with us.

Once again, thanks for the response. 

Sadly the drawing you have posted is for a 'standard' vertical mount.  I have plenty of those in stock. 

Attached diagram illustrates the 'underslung' variety we are searching for.

If we can not find one I can probably modify a standard 'top side' socket but it seems a shame to bodge a £1K laptop for want of a £1 socket.

I think you are after a reversed type A connector, like this one?

https://www.digikey.co.uk/product-detail/en/amphenol-icc-fci/74626-11S0BPLF/609-6097-ND/5204317

That would be it.  Perfect.

Now I have to find something else to buy at Digikey to get the free shipping.

No need to apologies.  I lived/worked in Moscow for 18 months and never got further than "pa-jul-sta" and "spa-si-bo."

Thanks for taking an interest.

I may have one knocking about, I bought some in error for a prototype a while ago.  If I can find them, happy to post one out.
