    My USB port isn't working.

    How does one fix a USB port that won't register anything plugged into it?

    Not a clue.
    ...?
    Try plugging something directly in, like a phone, that’ll light up the charge icon to show it’s connected from the outside, rather than the OUYA side.. should help track down the problem.
    If you’ve a wired X360 pad, the rings should light up as soon as it’s hooked up,

    Hmm. I wonder how hard it is to replace components like this...

    If it's the physical port rather than the USB controller, it's fairly standard part. In fact, the existing "bad" port may only need to be resoldered. Unfortunately, I think replacing or reattaching it would take some relatively fine solder work.
    "But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
    "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "otherwise you wouldn't have come here."

    I wouldn't touch the USB port for replacement because in order to pull that module out you'd also have to pull out your HDMI due to it being a uni-body setup. and HDMI connectors kind of suck to remove and add.

    I would instead get a "A" type female usb extension cable that can be panel mounted. clip the wires and solder to the same points where the USB is on the board. Then rotary tool out a new USB port.. The Ouya has the space to do it. And even though you're drilling holes and soldering 5 wires the chance of a successful repair will be higher.

    I heard someone at work might be able to fix it.
