DR1000s with broken USB port
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.
Other than that, I may have to sell the reader (for its screen and parts) to anyone interested.

If I remember well there is also a thread somewhere that describes changing the usb connector, but I have not found it yet.
Please let us know how(if) you solved this, to help other people that might get the same problem.

The exact same thing has happened to my Kobo Arc, usb port fell inside. Been contacting Kobo, sent mulitple pictures, they've given me no answer...
My arc is only 6 months old...
Apparently in delving into this problem, this is the biggest negative comment in regarding the Arc... I feel they owe me a new one...!
