Chas, if it is a standard, either Micro or Mini, USB connector, I would try place like Mouser.com or Digikey.com. There you can get the actual dimensions of the port before you buy it. Getting any part, from any of the manufacturers, is virtual impossible. That is how everyone makes money, and that is why ifixit.com is so popular....;-) Hope this helps, good luck

The USB port for that device is very uncommon and it is not likely you will find one that is an exact match. I have been selling USB ports for a while now and so far have not found the 100% correct fitting part, despite much effort. Turns out one of my customers was able to fix his Vizio tablet using a USB port he bought in my store. He said it was close enough to the original and his technician was able to bend the legs a little and get it to fit on the board. I can't guarantee it will work for everyone, but if you are hopeless and want to try it, here is the link to the part. This method has been successful, so I thought I would share it with you. I would appreciate to hear back from those who decide to try it. Sounds like the options are limited, so I hope this helps.

my 9 year old messed up the charging port and the port broke in half needs to be replaced but we cant find anyone that sells the part. any suggestions?

monica perez, same as above. Searching for the original vizio part is almost like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack

oldturkey03,

I've heard good stuff about vizparts. Did they not have it in stock? As I understand it, they get the actual parts from the manufacturer if there is any stock at all.

Michael Ku,

You will have to change out the entire mainboard, found '''HERE'''. If you look at the image closely, you'll see that the micro HDMI and the USB data/charg port is attached to the board. It is a lot easier to change out rather than having to un-solder and re-solder the parts found '''HERE'''.

Hope that helps! :)

I have had some experience dealing with these USB ports and I there was not a single seller offering one that was a correct match. I found some sellers who claimed they were but when I ordered them (usually after waiting 10+ days for it to arrive from China) I discovered they weren't correct. I recently made a purchase from this listing: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...

and although the price isn't as cheap the little extra I paid to get the correct part made up for it.

Hope this helps=)
