When plugging the square end of the standard mini USB cable connector into the mini USB 2.0 port, the mini USB port separated from the electronics board. I removed the rectangular piece which had housed the port, and removed the now loose mini port. It looks as though the mini port had been soldered onto the board as there were two small "mounds" of solder where the port had been stalled originally.
I would like to know the best methodology for re-attaching the mini port to the board, and ensuring the connection to the board re-establishes operational connectivity to the cable connector.
The MYt is no longer under warranty, as I purchased it from OPT May of 2015. Thanks for your help.

I just had the same thing happen. It certainly looks like a very flimsy connection, especially for a mount of such overall quality.
