Here is a link for the replacement part (I think), maybe you can find one elsewhere.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Acer-Iconia-... This part looks the same - bit concerned re the different part number between the list number (Item 3) and the one provided on the Ebay page. Maybe check with the seller to confirm. Although the Ebay seller does state that it is also suitable for an A501, maybe that's what the difference is. Also check, once you've opened the Tab, there may be a part number on your USB port board.
Note: "Googling" the USB board, item 3 USB BOARD 55.H6002.002 above always directs me to the board 50.H6002.002 from various suppliers, so I'm guessing that it should be OK. Just so that you are aware.
