DR1000s with broken USB port

Hi all,

I’ve found myself in a rather frustrating situation. My DR1000S works great in every way – except that the mini-usb port has broken off. Or, more precisely, it "fell in".

Since this removes the only way to charge, the fact that I can still read and annotate while the battery drains is almost poignant.

What should I do? Don’t think I dare opening up the reader myself. I've damaged the case enough when hopelessly trying to connect the cable to the reader.

Thanks. I have come across these instructions. Unfortunately I am not capable of doing surface-mounted soldering. Would anyone be interested in giving me a hand? I will certainly pay for the help.

Other than that, I may have to sell the reader (for its screen and parts) to anyone interested.
