Bent pin in battery cable socket

Post by blangenfeld » Sun Jul 14, 2019 8:21 am

Mintypi works great, but won't run off battery power.

Continuity is good all around -- but one of the pins in the PCB battery cable socket (6 pins, off-white) is bent. Probably the culprit?

Tried straightening it with a sewing needle, but no luck. I think I could replace the socket without trouble, if I knew what to order.

Got in there with a mechanical pencil tip and straightened it out *just* enough. All good now!
