I've tried searching for different USB port types to identify what this port might be but to no avail. The mini USB cable fits in here however all the pins don't match up.

Any idea what it could be?

*COM port on POS device*

  • \$\begingroup\$ The mini USB cable does not slot in well, it's a little loose. The cable and the port have 5 pins each but from the play it has I doubt any of them are actually making contact. \$\endgroup\$ Commented May 18, 2016 at 8:50

    \$\begingroup\$ I've seen some ports like this used as proprietary connectors on cameras, basically working as USB, but forcing to buy proprietary cables. They may also combine some other functions like video output. Don't know the name for it though. \$\endgroup\$ Commented May 18, 2016 at 9:57
  • \$\begingroup\$ That looks like a mini-USB type AB connector. If I remember correctly it was intended as the OTG dual-role host/device connector when mini-USB was the current standard. \$\endgroup\$
