A few weeks ago, the USB port on my NST Glow came loose. Now, it will not charge at all. Is there any way to fix/replace it?
Is this a good question?
Did anyone ever find a replacement USB socket for this device?
the loose port connection means I also cannot hard-wire to my computer to download library books. How can I get this fixed?!
Where can I buy this port connection?
Carter clavierkid, you will have to disassemble your Nook, here is a teardown and either solder the old port back on or try and find a replacement.

Can be quite a tricky job. Here is a video I did of soldering a similar port. It may be helpful if you are going to attempt it. https://youtu.be/gaHlbbxbTGs
James Soulsby, excellent video. I've been a fan of your work for years. Thank you for joining the great ifixit community.
I'll have to find a T5 screwdriver first. I'll go out and find one today. Thanks for the advice!
2 of the pins on my USB port have completely broken off. Any advice on where to find a new one?
The local iFix shop claims they have replacement ports for other models but not the simple touch with glowlight. Is this really such a special port?
