Hello guys, if you have come to this post chances are that your Jadoo TV has a broken charger connector . I will be showing you how to repair Jadoo TV 3 IPTV. Please keep in mind that there are two versions of Jadoo TV 3 . The first one that came out in the beginning was the one with the regular round charger . The second version is the one that has the USB type B charger port similar to the one shown in the picture below .

Before you get started , you will need the following tools . A soldering iron, some soldering wire , a cutter , a flat head screw driver , and a Philip head screw driver .
Make sure that Jadoo TV is unplugged from any other wires such as the HDMI , and the Ethernet cable or the wireless antenna . Flip the Jadoo box over and right where the warranty seal is there is a dip underneath it . Put a flat head screwdriver or cutter and pop it open . See picture below .

Unscrew the two Philip head screws on the board as shown below . The board will come off now . Take out the charger port that has been broken . There is a sport where the port was originally soldered , and right under that there are 5 slots like connections as see in picture .

Take the charger that came with the Jadoo Tv 3 and cut off the B type connector from the wire . The wire will expose two wires one is black and one is red . The red one is positive 5v and the black one is the ground cable . Strip both cables about 2mm in length .

There are 5 total slot like connectors on the board where the female USB connector was connected . Please see picture . The first one from the left is the positive connector, and the last one

is the negative or ground . So , you will connect the 5V red wire on to the left most connector , and the ground wire black to the right most connector . This is a very tedious process as the connections are very small , and special handling is needed to connect them. Just make sure that the wire does not connect to the other wires next to it . It will need a small tap of the soldering iron and it should be connected . Also , please make sure that the soldering iron does not touch the connectors more than a few seconds as it can damage the circuit board . Once again be very careful in this step . the final picture should look like this .
The wires are connected as described , but be very careful as the connection is very frail and even a small amount of force can take off the wires and even break the delicate circuit. Once the connector is connected , plug the wire and check to see if the LEDs turn on .This is an indication that the Box is working .
As mentioned before that the connection is frail ,to counter that , I suggest that you make a knot in the wire like this
