Playbook micro HDMI port damaged

I have damaged my micro hdmi port by sticking in the wrong (not HDMI) cable. Now it does not work. Can this port be repaired or it should be replaced/exchanged? Can I do it myself or shuld go to repair shop....which is a problem for me as Playbook is not available on Croatian market....therefore no repair shops....please help....

If there is an expert who can help you out then you can give a try to repair...provided that you don't have option to replace or exchange it.

Is the connector bent or broken? If bent, you may be able to bend it back into place by using a small plastic screwdriver which are used in radio tuning or some other small plastic device.

Re: Playbook micro HDMI port damaged

thank you, as far as I can see, the small gold pins in the upper part of the connector are bend....they seem very small to be able to pull them back....how do you think I could do that?

Talk to a person who does repair work on cell phones. They may have the tools available to straighten them out.
