My USB Port for my blackerry palybook appears to have stopped working and under closer inspection a couple of the pins are knackered.
I need assistance on how I go about repair my USB port and the associated costs.
Any help welcomed.

Crucial you say what country you are in.
I am guessing UK in which case if retailer will not cooperate it's cheaper to go to currys and buy a new one. You can live without usb if you use wifi sharing and desk charging dock.
In canada/usa you have much better servicing centres

Yes I'm UK based.
Unfortunately the supplier in no longer in business and the unit is outside the 1 year manufacturer warranty.
What buy a new playbook? or a new micro usb port and get it fitted?
I guess I can look into the magnetic charging dock

Lever the back off with a credit card or similar pry tool and take a look. I believe the 3 sockets are moulded in one piece. Would rim supply it and can you strip and microsolder it? If not you are looking at a workshop repair across the pond and I am just saying it may be more than the £109 for a new 16GB playbook.
