Repairs for playbook

I recently acquired a Blackberry playbooks from work. It used to be the display model but it is suppose to also be fully functioning. The charger is broken..literally...and I think the port where the charger plugs in to the playbooks is broken. Where can I get a new charger and where can I go to get the port repaired? Thanks Angelina

If the usb slot is broken for sure then i would consider just finding a docking station to do the charging (it uses the three pin connection), my guess is a repair would cost a lot more but get both options priced up.

Thank you Very MUCH...I just hope it all works out because it will be so awesome for my husband to have this playbook to be able to do his school work while he is on his lunch breaks at work.

Re: Repairs for playbook

And where do I find this docking station?  And how do I go about finding a technician to give me a price quote on repairing the usb slot?

Re: Repairs for playbook

If I were you I would give RIM a call to have the device replace, has it is a defective one, without the USB port working, you will never be able to do a backup of the device, and mybe even more thing using the USB port when OS2 is released, and Desktop Manager ver. 7 is out as well
