    I used a sewing needle to replace the broken 5V USB power supply pin. A sewing needle is strong thus should last a while, and pointing which helps to engage with the plug pin. Also the needle can be soldered easily.

    Thanks for the pics of the power and data points to solder to. I am in the same boat. Ordered a dell streak 5 pin replacement and it doesn't fit right. This really helps. Thanks!

    I have been having the same charging port problems. On a lark, I got a Dell Home Audio/Video dock for the Streak, and it worked! Charges fine, paid $20.00 for the dock.

    Thanks.

    On the back above the cutout for the connection port there are 2 more circle mount points. the left being for the Data - (green wire) and the right being for the Data + (White Wire)
    Thanks for all your help so far. I'm about to get out the soldering iron! One question: The standard for USB cables is the green wire = Data+ and the white wire = Data-. This is opposite of what you stated. Could you please review your repair and let me know which terminal on the board is Data+ and Data-? thanks!

    Sorry about reopening this thread. I am in the same situation. Broken pins in the Dell streak 7 charger port and trying to put in a micro USB. May I ask where and what to look for while buying the micro USB charger port.

    I used only the guts from back door panel. I will try and find the model I used. I then used part of the cover from the iphone charging system. It will make more sense once u see the photos. U will need the charging mat as well.

    Dont bother...its too hard and expensive to replace the port with oem. Instead try one of the solutions posted here....good luck!

    One question... Does the old charging port need to be removed? Or can I leave it there and go for soldering the new wires?

    Thanks!
    I made some progress. Was able to solder the wires to the points and fully charge the unit !
    Then tried to put back the video and backlit cables on. The display flashed a white screen ?!

    While trying to redo the cables for the above issue, broke the latch of the video cable and it does not stay in anymore. Struck at this stage. Any suggestions?
