Broken hdmi on chromecast, can it be repaired?

Someone tripped on the wire, snapping the hdmi part nearly off. Now it receives power, but cannot output sound or video. Is there anyway I can repair this?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Its a mild long shot, but probably what happened is some of the connections have come loose from the board inside. I bet it broke from the left side, leaving the right side connected as that where the power is. First you'll have to crack it open and see how bad it looks inside. Maybe take a picture if you'd like and send it over and I can judge from there. If it looks possible you'll probably need to make little jumpers from the connector to the board using bits of leftover wire. It won't be fun and you'll need a small tipped solder iron to do some(steady hands help too) but hey you keep it outta the landfill. Good luck.

My HDMI connector also came off the chromecast, exposing about 14 wires.

Here's a jpg on Microsoft Onedrive:
