I have a micro-soldering job that is beyond my ability but might be a breeze for someone equipped to do this kind of thing. A USB 2 micro-connector has come loose from a circuit board. The five connection tabs, of which four are used, are very tiny and close together. My preference would be to have a new cable attached with a standard USB connector on it, but re-attaching the original micro-connector would also be acceptable. Could anyone do this job, and would anyone be interested? I am in Hastings but could post the board and connector. See this forum link for photos.

Perhaps link to the actual thread, not just the forum it's in.

I've looked for something similar, for some straightforward through-hole soldering, and it's pretty slim pickings out there, called a few places that advertise electronics repair, none of which were really interested in the work...

Is your job a MOBO too? If you can post/courier to Auckland, I can probably do that for you for a coffee/beer? PM me.
