My charging port it broken

My gopro hero 3 is struggling. So my charging port is broken. I when I try to plug it in it won't let me because a small plastic piece inside the gopro has broken off. When I try & plug it in the port just wiggles around and moves a lot so I can't plug it in. How can I fix this. Thanks

jerenstevenson, only by replacing the mini USB port. It is soldered to the logic board and does require some good soldering skills due to the small size of it. Check this teardown for more information about the location on the board etc. The other challenge will be to find a connector that fits. I'd try Mouser.com or Digikey.com most difficult part
