get it fixed?
hmm the simplest solution known to man, if you want a more complex answer, then.... go to mars, ask for this guy named Jak Bob, tell him to minipulize your ps3, and then to shoot it off in a capsule from mars into your living room. and if it breaks again just rub it against a squirrel

well i have two ps3's i tried doing it myself and it takes to much time to desolder and i ended up screwing on of the set of the usb ports on the motherboard that doesnt work, i still havnt toched the ps3 that has the bad usb ports every single one of the usb ports has a broken pin so there fore i cant unbend them. who could i take it to ? where can i look ?

Man dude, tht sucks to be you...
Well you should of never mistreated your ps3 in the first place, like: yanking ur USB cords out forcibly, throwing your ps3 against the wall, kicking at it cus ur gf broke up w/u, letting little brats get to it, and trying to put the USB cord in the misconstrued way.

maybe your local video game store like play n trade or something. but since you have already tried to remove the ports from the other board. I assume you have some sort of soldering experience. If thats the case i don't see why you couldn't get a female usb extention cord hack the cord up and just solder the hacked wires to the main pins under the port.
at that point you would just need to match pins...just google usb pinout or use a multimeter. or course it'd look funny but itll work.

in order to desolder...you will need either
1) Solder Wick(Solder Braid) or a Solder Sucker
if you have a soldering gun... then you can solder sorta. You just clean the place you going to solder with iso. alchol(90%) and heat up till it looks "wet" then place the corressponding wire to it. you can watch videos here : http://tangentsoft.net/elec/movies/
desoldering is harder because depending on how old the solder is will take some work. but the method would be to add new solder and mix with old then use solder wick to absorb the solder. repeat till done.
