DualShock 3 Bent pin in the USB port
Earlier I noticed that my controller stopped charging, and after a bit of searching, I found that the black housing in the USB port is broken, and the leftmost pin bent down. The other four pins are fine, still in the housing, only the housing around this problematic pin is missing. I tried sticking a toothpick in there, and bending it up in the most simplistic way possible (PUUSH), but it didn't want to stay where I put it. If anyone has any tips on bending it back, I'd be delighted. Note that if I must replace the USB port, I'd rather just replace the controller, as I have little soldering knowledge and no experience or equipment at all. However, I am not adverse to simply opening up the controller for other reasons, if that helps at all. Thank you.
