Charging port soldering help!

My charging port just broke I need to solder it back but I’m a total ass when it comes to electricity.
Red to what, black to what???

To one panda from another…
-Check the polarity of your charger and make sure you wire your input jack the same way.
-Red wire for positive, black for negative
-Aren’t these inputs up to 1A only though?
-How did your old input jack break?


Hello Panda,

The female plug solder broke
I know for the red an black being positive and negative
What I don’t know is where on the above plug I should solder my red and black wires…


The schematics says pin 2 and 3 are connected.

That leaves you to connect positive to either pin 5 or 2-3. Its dumb to do this wrong, thats why I suggest you to check the charger outlet first before solder this wrong and start a fire.

I “believe” pin 5 should be positive, but i dont know your charger and for my guitar stompboxes, pin 5 on these plugs are the negative.

Edit: I wrote the opposite of what I ment. Now fixed
Edit: I mixed up positive and negative… language barrier :roll_eyes:. I Now fixed

Ok thanks, I’ll check my charger but I’m not sure if there’s anything written on the plug…

Plug your charger and measure the voltage like in the picture. If it is a positive voltage, then red positive wire goes to pin 5. (Assuming the probe wires of your multimeter is plugged in correctly)


No multimeter…
I know, I’m a pain :sweat_smile:

I have an info from the factory:
“The center of the DC jack is positive and the outer part is negative”
Which would mean pin 5 is the positive


4153412281. Call me if you’re still in a bind. I can walk you through it.

But you’re doing yourself a miss service by not having a voltmeter

There are ways.


You are correct :+1:

Take a staple or paperclip
Short this out with charger connected

When you smell ozone and see / hear a short. Your done

Positive is the one with a rivet .


The problem is I have seen at least 2 versions of this plug where pin 2 was positive, on another pin 2 was neutral.

  1. Don’t do this without a multimeter. Just don’t.
  2. These plastic charge ports are absolute garbage.

Yes. The ports are shit. Good for 2 amps max

These are my favorite. Cheap. Even Amazon has them. I go 6 amps all day with no heating, assuming your charger tip is not garbage


Yeah I’ll change this crappy port
Rivet is positive
I got a multimeter
Thanks all of you!
